All your Questions Answered

Can you use a bamboo brush on wet hair?

Yes! Our bamboo hair brushes are finished with Carnauba Wax which gives them a layer of water proofing. In addition, bamboo itself is very resistant to moisture, and is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. These factors make bamboo an ideal material to use for hair brushes.

Is a bamboo brush harsh on my hair?

No, not at all. Conventional plastic brushes made from petroleum can cause static, frizz, and tangles. The natural and plant-based material used in our bamboo brushes is better for the hair over an extended period of time. In the same way that our skin responds better to natural fabrics like organic cotton, our hair also responds better to pure and natural materials like bamboo.

Is this bamboo hair brush vegan?

Yes, our bamboo hair brushes are 100% vegan. The finishing on the bamboo is Carnauba wax which is a plant-based material.

What should I do with my old bamboo hair brush?

Your bamboo hair brush can last for decades when properly care for. You can give your hair brush a new life by cleaning it and finishing it with a natural oil like olive oil or coconut oil. If you decide to discard the bamboo hair brush, the entire product is 100% compostable.

Does a bamboo brush help hair grow?

There is no evidence to suggest that a bamboo hair brush can help hair grow.

    Gentle & Solid Bristles

    Kathleen

    My main concern for hair brushes is that it can’t be too harsh on my scalp / hair ( I have thinner hair).

    So far I love this brush and it’s been great to use daily.

    I’ve seen other brushes that have an issue with the bristles falling out. Not an issue with this brush at least after a few months.

    Definitely recommend getting one.

  2. Question

    Samuel

    I’m wondering what’s the life expectancy of this product? With plastic brushes I’ve used in the past, the pins tend to break or bend or become loose and fall out of the cushion base, usually within a few months of purchase. How long can I expect this brush to last with daily use?

      These can be used for years and potentially decades. It’s best to avoid excessive contact with moisture or water – that will maintain the bamboo for longer.

      All natural rubber is made from latex. Latex is the white milky sap that comes from the rubber tree – a totally natural material from the earth. The rubber tree is tapped for its latex liquid in the same way the maple tree is tapped for maple water. And what we call rubber is derived from latex liquid. The latex liquid is coagulated to form rubber. Hope that answers your question!

      As any rubber used in a consumer good in this type of application – it is vulcanized.

    So far so good

    Gabrielle

    I’m almost done detangling my thick 3c/4a hair, and it’s been going pretty well. It’s not completely amazing and revolutionary, but it works just about the same as my plastic flexi brush.

    Helps with all or any tangles & knots!

    Whitney

    The thing I love about this bamboo hair brush is that I can gently brush my hair, even with more tangles or knots, without it pulling on my scalp.

    That’s the biggest difference between these pins and a plastic brush.

    I’ll happily be using this brush for as long as I can.

      Caring for this brush is no different from caring for a plastic toothbrush. You can just rinse it off in water!

    Great for medium hair thickness

    Lisa Kim

    I finally made the switch from my old plastic hair brush. This bamboo hair brush has been great for my hair. It’s a part of my morning routine.

    It’s been months and it still looks brand new. I can imagine using mine for life.

    Random note here but I never noticed that hair brushes have a hole in the cushion area to help prevent the build up of moisture.

      Hi Brenna – check out this video from Kathryn Kellogg that explains how to clean our bamboo hair brush: https://www.instagram.com/p/CGDNrYIH0sG/

      You can also go to her Instagram account and check it out on her feed @going.zero.waste

      1) pull off most of the hair, 2) place your brush in a shallow container of water with a few pumps of shampoo or liquid soap like Dr. Bronners and let it rest for about an hour, 3) when you pull it out, all the residue will easily wipe away⁠, 4) Let it dry upside down.
