Horsehair Shaving Brushes have been made in Spain by the Vie-Long Company for over 70 years. The Vie-Long 14080 Mixed Badger and Horsehair Shaving brush is a great looking brush with classic styling. It features an acrylic handle, with a two-tone coloured barrel. The handle carries the Vie-Long branding badge and holds the Mixed Badger and Horsehair loft. A horsehair shaving brush has about the same softness to the tips as pure badger hair but a little more stiffness to the shaft than pure badger hair. Hair also allows very good water retention. These are hard to find and unique shaving brushes using 50% hair from the horse’s mane and 50% hair from the horse’s tail. No horses are killed or harmed in any way during the collection of hair. The hair is taken only while the animals are being groomed. Shaving brushes should be thoroughly lathered and rinsed a few times before using on the face to remove preservatives, sterilization residue and any dyes that may have been used. A beautiful looking brush, packaged in a distinctive gift box.
