Last year I bought a Duke.  Right now I'm loosing an average of five hairs per shave. I'm not happy. I was so mad when it began that I bought an Omega synthetic, but still. I take care of my brushes.  I don't know what is wrong. What could be wrong?

If the strands of hair are long it could be caused by a failure of the glue holding the knot together.  If the strands are short it could be caused by your lathering technique, especially if you mash the knot and use a circular motion.  Have you taken it to the vendor  that sold it to you?  You could also contact Mark Waterson at Simpson.

Also avoid overly hot water.

This is the best advice.  I have many Simpsons brushes, and never had a problem.  A chance failure:  contact the vendor or Mark.

This pretty much tells the entire story.

I used to get nervous over these. I have used duke only briefly but remember -these hair are filled to the brim. 2-3 hairs no issues. 10-15 - issues. Hit me up if you want and I will post a video showing what a shedding brush looks like.
