Good barbers use a quality shaving brush to facilitate the optimum shave. The bristles have to be a balance between resistance to raise the beard and softness to generate a fine, rich lather. These bristles are soft like badger (definitely not badger as they are synthetic!) but with resistance to raise the beard, making a closer cut easier. Badger bristles are very much like human hair in that they have scales making for a rough surface, they tend to be damaged and often hollow. This means that approximately 50% of shave crème being used penetrates and coats the bristles never to make it to the area to be shaved and not all is rinsed out after use. Hence the reason why these bristles suffer from product build up over time and need to be cleaned out as well as using approximately twice the amount of shave creme!
- The synthetic bristles are non-absorbent, so they need less shave crème and create a richer lather.
- Add a little more water to the bristles after shaving and you will probably have enough lather for a second, closer shave.
- Easier to clean the bristles and keep them clean.
- Using the stand helps promote the longevity of the bristles and is best hygienically.
How to use:
Use with Men-u Ultra Concentrate Shave Crème for a completely new generation of shave and process of exfoliation women can only dream of! If you know of a better shaving combination, let us know. A good, close shave provides a degree of skin exfoliation that a woman can only dream of! To do the best for your skin, after shaving and rinsing use Men-u Healthy Facial Wash, rinse and pat dry with a clean towel. Then apply Men-u Facial Moisturiser lift to complete the facial experience. Shaving can remove up to two layers of skin. There is no other regular activity that does this, which is why it is so important to use a good quality moisturiser.
