Shaving brush set
A shaving brush set is a bundle of different shaving brushes that are specially designed to make shaving easier. It is often used by men who want to get a close and comfortable shave.
This shaving set can consist of different types of brushes, depending on the personal preference of the user. For example, some sets contain a synthetic brush, a badger hair brush and a boar bristle brush. There are also sets that come with additional accessories, such as shaving foam or a shaving bowl .
Different types of shaving brushes
There are different types of shaving brushes in a set and each has its own specific features and benefits. Below are the three main types of shaving brushes you can find in a shaving brush set:
Synthetic Shaving Brushes - These shaving brushes are made of synthetic fibers and are very popular due to their softness and fast drying time. They are also easy to clean and ideal for those with animal hair allergies.
Badger hair shaving brushes - These shaving brushes are made from badger hair and are more expensive than synthetic brushes. The badger hair has a natural bounce and firmness, making it ideal for lathering up shaving cream and applying it to the skin. There are different types of badger hair, from the cheaper 'Pure' and 'Best' to the expensive 'Silvertip' grades.
Boar bristle shaving brushes - These shaving brushes are made of boar bristle and are the most affordable option. They are usually stiffer than badger hair, meaning they are ideal for lathering up soap. However, boar hair is less soft than badger hair and can cause irritation in sensitive skin types.
How do you use a shaving brush?
To use a shaving brush, the brush must first be moistened with warm water and then dipped in the shaving cream or soap. The brush should be rubbed over the face in circular motions to distribute the lather evenly. After the shave is complete, the brush should be rinsed thoroughly with warm water and hung to dry.
A shaving brush set can be a great investment for men looking for a comfortable and close shave. Due to the different types of brushes in a set, the user can experiment and discover which brush works best for their skin and hair type.
