This brush has Best Badger hair which can be dark in colour, but fluctuates from a light tan to a near-black or silvery sheen. The hair is coarser than ‘best’ or ‘silver tip’ hair due to its larger shaft. Most often, pure badger brush hairs are trimmed to shape, resulting in somewhat stiff, rough ends.
This Badger Travel Brush Black Edwin Jagger can quickly create a rich lather using relatively little shaving soap. The brush is pre-soaked and then excess water is gently squeezed out. The brush is then used in a swirling manner to load the soap onto the tips of the brush until a paste forms. The soap is then worked into a lather by vigorously working the soap with the brush. This can be done either in a bowl or on the skin adding small amounts of water until the lather has peaks (approx. 2-3mins). Once the lather is created it is applied to the face or other area to be shaved. The Badger Travel Brush Black Edwin Jagger can be less sensitive to everyday use.
Using a shave brush on one’s skin produces a mild exfoliation. The greatest benefit from using a shave brush is the tendency to soften and lift facial hair before a shave. If you apply a shaving soap by hand it can mat hair or raise it unevenly resulting in a less smooth shave. Using a shave brush means a razor does not need to be pressed to the skin in order to provide a close shave.
To assist in gaining longevity out of your brush clean it regularly (every 3 months) using a brush cleaner or some mild detergent. Soak your brush hairs (not the handle) in warm water and mild detergent for 10 mins, agitate a few times leave sit 10 mins agitate again repeating twice more. Rinse brush shake out excess water gently and store in a well ventilated spot so it can dry out. Alternatively store on a brush stand. These are recommendations only please refer to manufactures instructions for the brush you have purchased.
