This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Since the 1800s, boar bristle brushes have been prized for their ability to keep hair healthy and shining without the use of products. The magic is in the way the coarse bristles distribute the scalp's natural oils evenly through every strand. There are many options, and it can be challenging to determine the best choice for your distinct hair type, so allow us to demystify the process for you. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

March 25, 2019:

Boar bristle brushes are effective on most hair textures and are useful not only for detangling but for maintaining scalp health and removing dandruff. This list comprises a variety of models that will hopefully make finding the perfect match for your grooming needs a quick and simple process. There are brushes here that have handy features such as ergonomic handles, round-tipped nylon bristles, ceramic bodies, and more. The newly-added Magic Collection Reinforced is designed to be held in the palm, giving users greater control over the pressure and direction of each stroke. In choosing products for this collection, providing a range of options to reflect the diversity of hair types was the most important consideration.
