Benefits of Using a Bamboo & Eco-Friendly Hairbrush

Have you ever thought about why natural bamboo brushes are better for your hair than plastic ones? Let us talk you through why bamboo hairbrushes are the best choice when deciding on a new hairbrush.

Plastic hairbrushes are obviously not a single-use plastic and so although it is still a plastic and not environmentally friendly at the end of their life, at least they are used many times before they break or you need a new one. It’s certainly not the worst product to use plastic for and is why if you have a plastic brush, you must use it until it really is time to buy another one and then choose sustainable and eco-friendly. 

Why pick a natural bamboo hairbrush for the environment?

Our plastic free and vegan bamboo hair brush is the best eco-friendly hairbrush because it is made from 100% sustainable bamboo and made with natural rubber. At the end of its life, it is zero waste and can be put in your compost, as it is fully biodegradable (even the pins in our bamboo hairbrush are 100% bamboo!).

Why bamboo brushes are better for the health of your hair than plastic hairbrushes

  • Unlike regular plastic pin hairbrushes, which can be quite harsh on your hair, bamboo pins will not damage your hair and will instead be much gentler on those tough knots and tangles. We think the eco-friendly round bamboo hairbrush is perfect for your little one's locks and will cause less complaints.
  • The rounded pinned ends are great for stimulating and massaging the scalp and so soft that you will barely even notice what it is doing. Stimulation of the scalp and follicles will promote growth and increase sebum production. Brushing these natural oils from scalp to end will mean your hair will look healthier and feel softer and sleeker. You may also find that you need less product in your hair, as this bamboo hairbrush will make your hair feel stronger and healthier than it ever has before.
  • You won’t believe us but your hair will be static-free after using a bamboo hairbrush. Plastic hairbrushes increase the electrical charge in your hair and this is what causes static & frizziness. Bamboo has a neutral to negative charge and so it is less likely to cause static, leaving your hair looking sleek and smooth. No one wants those fly-aways!
  • Bamboo also is naturally antibacterial, antifungal and odour resistant which helps to keep your hair and scalp happy.

Why is bamboo the most sustainable and eco-friendly material for your wooden hairbrush?

Bamboo is better than any wood.

It is the fastest growing plant in the whole world! It grows between 24-48 inches per day, which means no matter how often it is harvested it is not causing damage to the forest, nor the ecosystem. It also grows in places that other crops cannot and so makes use of space that would otherwise lay dormant. All of the above make it very clear that bamboo is an extremely sustainable material.

The bamboo used in our natural, vegan & eco-friendly hairbrushes has been grown without pesticides or fertilizers in the Jiangxi Province in China, which is highly regulated and monitored by the Chinese authorities. Plus, the bamboo has been sourced from a manufacturer with licensed cutting permission granted by the government.

What are the benefits of using rubber in our bamboo hairbrush?

The cushioned padding that holds the bamboo pins allows for the hairbrush to be much gentler on your scalp and hair. Plus, rubber will make your brush last longer. It is also hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial and ant-dust mite. Plus, rubber is 100% biodegradable and so will break down when composted with the other materials.

How to clean your bamboo hairbrush

Remove excess hair

You can do this using a comb or something small and sharp, like a little pair of scissors. Get close to the hairbrush and in between the bristles, pull up and this will catch some of the hairs. Do this a few times to remove as much as possible. Your hairbrush is much more effective when there is less hair caught up in the head.

Make a cleaning solution

Fill a bowl with about half a cup (120ml) of hot water, then add 5 drops of tea tree oil and mix together. You have now made a natural disinfecting cleaner to clean your bamboo hairbrush.

Cleaning your bamboo hairbrush

Keep an old toothbrush for this job. Dip your toothbrush in the solution and start cleaning the bristles from the base of the head to the top of the brush. Be careful not to scrub too hard, as you do not want to damage your hairbrush.

If you are struggling to get rid of any of the dirt on your hairbrush, fill a spray bottle with the tea tree mixture and lightly spray this onto your hairbrush to soften it. Then either use your toothbrush or a clean cloth to remove it.

Rinsing your hairbrush

Fill a spray bottle with warm water and mist very lightly over the hairbrush. Make sure to be careful and use a clean cloth to wipe this water and any remaining oil and dirt off of the hairbrush.

If you have added a bit too much water, just pat the hairbrush onto a dry cloth and this should help to remove any excess liquid.

Drying your eco-friendly hairbrush

Place your hairbrush, bristle side down, onto a dry towel or cloth and leave for about 15-30 minutes. This is to make sure that any water that was used to clean it, is not sitting at the base of the bristles and so will prolong the life of your hairbrush.

  • Being a winner of a multi-million dollar lottery certainly will be a life-changing event for almost every single lottery winner. My name is Isabella Brown from California, the famous Powerball lottery winner of $500 Million Dollars. I know many people would wonder how I had won the lottery. Would you believe me if I told you that I did it with spell caster? I met this famous spell caster known as DR JATTO and he was the one who did it for me. As shocking as it was to me, my famous comment to the press was “ I’m going to go and hide in my bed.” Never did I believe that DR JATTO made me wealthy overnight.
