After several years of buzz cuts, I've decided to let my hair grow back out. What's a good brand or style of hair brush to get? What kind of bristle/hair?

If you're bald, don't comment.Biggrin

I have always used white boar bristle military brushes. Any good manufacturer like Kent make quality brushes. Cheap ones from Sally Beauty, Walmart, etc don't last long.

I also recommend the Kent Military brushes. They have an Ebay outlet which sells cosmetic seconds at reduced prices. Both of mine came from there.....and I can see nothing wrong with them.

Maybe I am too hard on brushes Smile I have went through a lot of Diane 8114's. I would buy them for travel. After a couple months you could use them as a cribbage board. I also found the finish was prone to flaking off. Probably from banging around in a Dopp kit. It is not considered the greatest brush care.

My Diane brush looks new after 10 years and the bristles are still nice and firm so I wonder if the older ones were built better than the current ones?
Well the Diane is $6 and has work quite nicely for me over the years, but I'm sure the Kent is a far nicer brush but they can run in the $40-$80 range. I keep my hair short so haven't seen the need to upgrade to Kent just yet.

Even though Johnny probably doesn't want to hear from me, 'cuz I'm more bald than not bald, I have a Kent rectangular club with soft white bristle that I've thoroughly enjoyed for the past several years. I highly recommend Kent.

i have thinning hair and it almost seems pointless to brush my noggin'..........but i do. i have a Kent Military and love it! mine has the softer white bristles (for guys with thin hair), but Kent also has a military brush for guys with thicker hair. i would not hesitate to give one of these a try!
