Ah.

I bought myself a new brush recently, a boar bristle one... Not only does it keep my hair shiny (natural bristles draw the scalp oils down the shaft of the hair); it also is just the thing I need to calm my aching head before I go to bed. I'm telling you guys, there is NOTHING like a good old brushing with a good brush as a pre-slumber scalp massage! It just relaxes me and leaves my head feeling like jello. No to mention my hair feels all shiny and silky, too.

I love my boar bristle brush. It is well worth the investment in an excellent brush.

I too have a boar bristle brush and it is one of the best investments I made, I don't loose half as much hair from brushing and styling also the condition is a lot better.
I got a Maralyn brush from Ultah last year.

Avalange, I got a boar bristle brush but I found it hard to use as it wouldn't get close to my scalp. How do you use it? I end up using my regular brush all the time.

I love my boar bristle brush, mine is a Louise Marie Longhairs 'Kinder Brush' (all boar in a wooden base). I split my hair in half, work my way from the ends to the scalp to detangle (always brushing against my body), then put it together and brush carefully from the top to the bottom.

I also have a Mason Pearson 'Popular' which is nylon and boar in a rubber base. I do not use it anymore, although it does get through to the scalp easily, it is tougher on the length of the hair. For me, with the MP it is too easy to pull too hard and break the hair off.
