Easy question to answer , how often do you rotate your shaving brushes , and why ?

I do , basically ,everyday.Why ? , many reasons :

1.I do have too many badger , boar and synthetic brushes and I like to use them all.

2.I already know after my first or second shave if I'm going to like a brush or not.

What about you , gentlemen ?

I use a different brush every day. I like all of my brushes, for a variety of reasons.

Yes, it's a favorite. But I like my butterscotch Somerset Duke 2 in Best just as much. To me it's amazing how varied the Bests can be, as you can see in this image of the two brushes.

I tend to change every day, though sometimes I'll go a few days to a week with the same one.

I rotate natural brushes every day to allow proper dry time, if I'm on a synthetic binge I just use them over and over.

For the enjoyment of variety I'll rotate everyday but if I were to choose one bruh for the rest of my life it'd be my M&F 2xl finest but in the density and size of my chubby 3 Manchruian.

Everyday a different brush, unless I am evaluating for one reason or another then I may use the same brush consecutively but usually change the lathering method (face/bowl) or product type (soap/cream/stick)

I voted every 2-3 days.

It takes me too long too decide each time, so I spread the decision-making out a few days to make things easier. Blush

Every day because I like a little variety. I have my brushed laid out in an order and I take the next brush in line and depending the brush is how I choose which soap/cream to use.

every day, but I don't have that many anymore, I just kept the ones I absolutely couldn't go without and let the other ones go to be loved by someone else (and no it weren't the expensive ones who stayed)

I rotate brushes every day with the exception of when I am on travel when I use the same brush throughout the trip. In the latter instance, I take a brush that dries relatively quickly.
