The Men's Room

brushPOSTI used to work with an older barber that swore horse hair shaving brushes were the best on the market. Of course me being biased to badger hair, I paid very little attention at the time. But over the years I secretly tried a few a that definitely made an impression both for their performance, and the **”animal friendly” process of making the brushes. So, when I was given the opportunity to try out the Vie-Long Cachurro Shaving Brush I didn’t hesitate!

It’s a sharp looking brush that provides a great lather, and is much softer than pure and some best badger brushes on the market. And, you get all this for less than $25. That’s a price that’s hard to beat!

However, the only drawback of horse hair shaving brushes can be the out-of-the-box smell especially when wet. But with a thorough wash and soak in your favorite hair shampoo (1 hr. minimum), the scent will become close to non-existent.

** The process of making badger brushes, requires that the badgers are killed for different grades of brushes. Horses ore not.
