    What brand brush do you use?

    "Iris Hantverk" if I remember correctly.

    Is it all boar or is it blended with other material?

    100% boar bristles.

    How often do you use it?

    Twice a day.

    How often do you clean it?

    Once or twice a weak. I remove hair after every use.

    Do you use it with other oil (ie coconut)?

    Not really for oil, but I do put oil in my hair before brushing it sometimes.

    Has it made a difference in your hair?

    Yes and even more for my scalp. I section my hair to give my scalp a good brushing a few times a week.

Finer friends such as yourself, with your self-weaving silken strands, may require an alternative technique - yours sounds excellent. When you flip your hair back after brushing it from underneath, do you take each half and place it behind you separately, as Madora describes upthread?
    I just realized that I didn't reply to you but yes, I do, and I usually follow up with a gentle finger-coming to ensure the self-weaving doesn't immediately begin.

    What brand brush do you use? Denman
    Is it all boar or is it blended with other material? BBB 100%
    How often do you use it? As needed - usually a few days after washing and will use most days until wash day. Only when oily.
    How often do you clean it? Oooh some people here clean it often, hahah I've had it for a year and haven't cleaned it once! I wonder if there's a thread for how often it should be cleaned?
    Do you use it with other oil (ie coconut)? No, but I've recently learned about conditioning before brushing and would like to implement this.
    Has it made a difference in your hair? Yes! Immediately it eliminates that greasy scalp look & feel.

    I clean it with soap and water twice a week, because the greese and stuff from my hair and scalp, gets stuck in my brush. And if I don't clean it, it will then end up in my clean hair.

    What brand brush do you use?

    I have a Bass, a Spornette from Amazon, and a knockoff Mason Pearson type. The Spornette is my favorite. It's bigger and the bristles are jest the right level of stiffness.
    Is it all boar or is it blended with other material?
    They are all Boar/nylon. I do have one one hundred percent boar bristle but I just got it and I haven't tried it yet
    How often do you use it?
    Once a day, before bed.
    How often do you clean it?
    I use my olivia garden hairbrush cleaner after every use, wide end and narrow end. I gently shampoo it when it seems like it needs it.
    Do you use it with other oil (ie coconut)?
    My Mason Pearson knockoff if very stiff and I use it with Monoi oil occasionally.
    Has it made a difference in your hair?
    My hair is glossier and is much less frizzy with it than without. (I have way hair and I live in a subtropical climate- there will always bee frizz.

    I've used ebelin 100% BBB. It really enhanced shine but it also caused some serious hair breakage so I stopped using it.

    I have a BBB and it charges my hair. I thought one of the advantages was that it didn't do that.
