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.

  • My name is Hailey Garcia and I am from New Jersey. My herpes virus turned to war after 2 years of living with it. I have tried different medical procedures to cure my herpes but to no avail. Most people think herpes is only a minor skin irritation of which herpes has long term effects on health and passes through the bloodstream and can be easily contracted through sexual intercourse. I knew I had herpes from the first day I started feeling itchy in my pubic area and the pain was very unbearable. I couldn’t stand it anymore. After 2 years of trying other means to get rid of it, I had to contact Doctor Odunga to help me with a permanent cure. I saw his email and whats-app number from a testimony I read online from a lady who was also helped by him in curing infertility problems, I had faith and contacted him. He assured me of his work and I ordered his herbal medicine. Within 5 days, I didn’t feel any pain anymore and within 2 weeks, my skin was all cleared and smooth. I am very grateful to you sir and I write this testimony as others have done to bring those having faith to you sir. If you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cured, kindly contact Doctor Odunga, Whats-App (wa.me/+2348167159012) OR Email odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

  • I am a very happy woman with the help of Dr Krish Spiritual who helped me restore my relationship with my ex husband. My name is Agnes Smith and I am from Alaska, USA. I met Dr Krish Spiritual through a testimony online and I never thought I would have my ex husband back after 4 years of separation. After my contact with his email, he told me not to worry and I would really be happy as I am now. Trusting in his words was the right decision for me. After 2 days, my ex husband called me saying that he wants to return back to me and live with me forever and I was very shocked. This made me believe that Dr Krish is really a very great spiritual man. Today, I am very happy to write this testimony about him and want others to testify to his power as I am currently happy in my restored marriage. Don’t waste time on that relationship problem. Contact Dr Krish Spiritual directly through his email at lordkrishshrine@gmail.com to help you solve that relationship problems in your marriage

  • ALL THANKS TO THE EXNER HACKER
    I invested a total of $515k on a binary option platform after several weeks i tried to make some withdrawals to my bank but the withdrawal wasn’t successful, i quickly contact the platform customer care via email and phone number but didn’t get a response from them that was when everything started looking weird. Some weeks later I got an email from them requesting that I should invest more money if I wanted to withdraw my money, which I rejected, and I never heard from them again. That was when I knew I’m about to be screwed. It was really devastating. After some months I came across a lot of testimonies and ratings on the web on how The Exner Hacker had helped many people recover their stolen, scammed or duped money on bitcoin or any other form of digital currency. I contacted them and they promised to help me get my money back and asked me for some info about the company I invested with. The result was amazing. I recovered all my Lost funds back within a space of 48 hours. This was such a high moment in my life. My money is back in full amount. Thanks to Theexnerhacker@protonmail.com.
