Hello gents,

I hope this new year has started well for all of you.

I'm pleased to introduce you the 3 new White Horse hair shaving brushes we have received from Vie-Long. Unbleached white horse hair it has been used to make them.

I just used my Vie Long golden brown horse hair brush today. More people should use these brushes. Benefits of boar and badger combined and more economical as well. They can dig into soaps and be gentle on the face at the same time and definitely good at lather building.

Is there a different feel or texture with the unbleached white horse hair compared to the brown or banded/dyed. It's often been discussed how the banded is quite soft and the brown is more firm. How would you describe the unbleached white? Thanks.

The white horse hair from these 3 brushes is the same as the white bleached one but unbleached. 50% mane / 50% tail. A brown horse hair shaving brush vs a white one (bleached or unbleached) with the same loft size it will be more firm because it has 65% tail which is the hair the provides the firmness. Whilst the white one having 50% mane which is a less "rigid" hair makes the brush softer.

I have more than one horse hair brush, and while I find their performance quite good, I find the very tips are a just a tad prickly, not very prickly, but noticeable. I don't mean scritchy, I mean prickly. Anyone else have this experience? Do horse hairs break in eventually? I haven't found this yet.

That was my experience, but the brush I had was quite short lofted. That 13061B looks really tempting.

The 14095B...almost same loft, but much cheaper Smile I also see you can ask the loft to be longer!

I wonder if anyone has any idea or has an opinion regarding the mane/tail combination which would be softer on the face, that is, less prickly?

I just received my 14095B, and have only used it twice. I can say at 50/50 I expected its to be softer, but my brown hair 65/35 , also used under 10 times seems softer and a little less prickly. That may be my imagination at this point.
It does not bother me at all though and I too wonder if horse has a break in period.
Either way, I like them. If you are going to face lather get a loft below 50mm as I had tangling issues with my brown 12651.
Juan provided excellent customer service and replaced it for me!

Hello gents,

We have a new Two Band shaving brush model available from Vie-Long. VL 16516 is offered with both 50mm loft for those that enjoy face leathering and 55mm.
Two Band hair from Vie-long is the thickest hair from Vie-Long badger hair. This provides this type of hair a great backbone. Makes this type of hair ideal when using hard soaps.
