Why choose a natural bristle hairbrush for a baby?

For babies in particular, natural bristles stimulate the scalp to encourage hair growth, and help prevent cradle cap by breaking up product build up and dry skin so a parent can keep the scalp clean.

This brush is only available in the small size (7 x 2″)

Avoid direct heat on the bristles or submerging the whole brush in any liquid. If the bristle pad gets excessively wet, remove the bristle pad and allow it to air dry before replacing it. Whenever you feel it's needed, you can remove the bristle pad for thorough cleaning: First, remove all hair and as much lint as possible, using another comb or brush. Then, pop out the bristle pad by pinching opposite LONG sides of the bristle pad with your thumb and a finger. Swish the pad around for about 60 seconds in warm soapy water (do not soak, as this could loosen the bristles). Rinse, shake off, then pat the bristle pad dry with a towel and let it air dry for a few hours before reinstalling it into the handle. To replace the bristle pad, squeeze the long sides again and insert it at the top of the handle first, then push it firmly back into place going all the way around the brush along the edges.


Our bestselling bristle pad is Mixed Bristle (natural boar bristle mixed with nylon tips), which not only collects oil from your scalp, where oil can give the crown of your head a greasy look, and distributes it throughout your hair, producing the opposite effect of healthy, smooth hair, but is also designed to encourage hair growth by way of scalp stimulation. (Pro Tip: brush your scalp well with one of our Mixed Bristle brushes before each wash, then any dry skin that would have possibly ended up as flakes in your hair or on your shoulders could wash away in the shower instead). We also offer our Very Soft Baby Bristles for babies or anyone with an extra sensitive scalp due to hair loss or medical treatments. If the design you choose does not have this option available, select a small size brush in that design then add a request in the order notes section for a Baby Bristle pad. You can also request these additional bristle pad types (only available in the Large and Small sizes) in the notes section of an order: Pure (a full bristle pad with natural boar bristles), or Synthetic (mixed synthetic bristles and nylon).


Do you have friends or family members who are difficult to find a unique gift for? With over 50 designs to choose from, our hairbrushes make wonderful gifts that can be carefully picked to suit any personality. And don't forget additional members in your household; One of our favorite compliments to hear is, "I had to return for an additional brush because my daughter keeps taking mine!" Our customers also tell us that they have purchased a brush for a male figure in their life who is concerned about thinning hair or a flaky scalp (see Pro Tip above). Whoever you purchase a brush for, we hope you all enjoy the great care that goes into making them special.
