Copper Stubby Synthetic Brush handle is a blend of epoxy and copper to create a weighted brush handle. Molded into a classic shave brush design and fitted with a 20 mm Synthetic Brush knot. The synthetic knot of today has been designed to mimic the badger in softness and absorptivity. While it is only recently that synthetic brushes have become regarded seriously. Technology has finally caught up with nature to provide an absolutely vegan and cruelty-free brush with similar properties to the badger brush.
One of the advantages of the synthetic brush is that while the brush as a whole holds water similar to a badger, yet the individual hairs of the brush do not absorb water. Allowing the brush to dry faster with less chance of mildew. Still, they should be allowed to dry fully between shaves. Durable, quick-drying, and easy to use, makes the synthetic brush is a preference by a growing number of wet shavers. As they don’t require as much break-in time and are less likely to shed unlike softer natural hair brushes, plus they are a low-maintenance solution as well as ideal for travel.
Caring for your Copper Stubby Synthetic Brush
A word to the wise, While synthetic brushes are less likely to, shedding is still inevitable. Especially with a new brush. It is very normal for brush shedding during the first month or so of use, however, if this continues after the first few months there can be a few different reasons. First, inspect the brush. noting what kind of hairs are coming off – are they full-length bristles that have glue on the bottom? Or are they short hairs?
Short hairs coming off your brush may mean breaking rather than shedding. In other words, the hairs are becoming brittle and breaking off when being used. This will often happen if you don’t let the brush soak in warm water before use. Hot water will sometimes make the epoxy glue fracture, but cold water or no water at all will mean that the hairs in your shaving brush don’t get a chance to actually ‘warm up’ before a shave and may thus be too rigid to do their job, and break. Caring for your brush is your responsibility! If however, your brush continues to lose hair despite you doing your utmost to maintain it, it could be time to contact us, as there may have been an issue in the manufacturing process.
