While the Urban Beard Brush does boast styling benefits, it was originally designed to improve hair texture. The unique structure of the boar bristle carries the skins natural oils to the end of the hair shaft. By coating each hair strand with a very small amount of the skins natural oils, a boar bristle brush repairs dry hair and adds lustrous shine. The biggest difference you'll notice when brushing your beard with the Urban Beard Brush will be the texture of your facial hair. Another benefit of using a boar bristle brush is it stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, which can improve beard growth and nutrient delivery.
