Wet Shaving cannot be complete without the use of a shaving brush. While the type of hair used in the manufacture of these shaving brushes has been up for debate, using a shaving brush has got its advantages.
Forming Good Lather
The goodness of the badger shaving brush is in its properties. The brush is able to retain moisture by trapping them between its bristles. With this ability, it helps it make good lather. This is because as the brush is used to collect the shaving cream, together with its retained moisture, it helps form the lather easily. A good shaving brush should be able to form lather easily, even for a beginner.
Application of Lather
The essence of forming lather is in its application. After forming or preparing the lather in the shaving cup, you would need to apply it to your face or wherever you want to shave. Just like with the forming of the lather, the badger brush will allow for easy application of the lather.
ExfoliationRegular shaving helps in exfoliating the skin but with a badger brush, you get better exfoliation. Exfoliation is done better with the badger hair because of its design. The badger brush is able to reach within the hair and touch the skin. This allows for easy removal of the dead cell layers on the skin – the principle of exfoliation.
