Kent Brushes Since 1777

G B Kent & Sons Ltd, have manufactured brushes since the eighteenth century and are one of the oldest established companies in Great Britain.

Kent Brushes was founded in 1777 by William Kent in the reign of George III and holds an unbroken record of excellence in the quality of its production which has been recognised by the granting of Royal Warrants for nine reigns.

Today, I would like to focus on what exactly a bristle brush does for your head and scalp.  Bristle maintains good hair condition in many ways. Firstly, it keeps hair clean. When looking under a microscope, bristle looks very much like fish scales. These scales pick up dirt, pollution and excess hair products from the hair.

Bristle also stimulates the scalp and the red blood cells which naturally encourages hair growth. By brushing with bristle, the natural oils that are produced in your scalp are released and distributed along the hair shaft, keeping hair healthy, shiny and glossy, thus preventing dull-looking hair.

Finally, I cannot stress enough how important the brush cleaner is to the longevity of the brush. If you have some other tried and true method then by all means use it. But for a few dollars (or pounds),  the Kent brush cleaner is a must which should be used several times a week to keep the brush in the optimal condition.
