A Tradition of Excellence


A Family Legacy
With more than 100 years of brush making experience, the long held tradition of German excellence is evident in every brush.

Wood Handles Finished to Perfection
The brush handles are made from locally grown wood. The raw wood is finished to a smooth perfection, then oiled to preserve and protect.

High Quality Wild Boar Bristles
With care and experience, only the best boar bristles in the world are chosen for the Desert Breeze Distributing hair brushes. These boars are raised for meat, but the bristles are saved for use in high quality brushes.

The first cut of the boar bristle is the most firm, and is the only cut we use. The root (follicle) of the bristle is gentle on the scalp and is a sign of a high quality brush. The photo at left shows bundles of boar bristles that have been cleaned, cut, and are ready to be made into brushes.

Boar Bristles Not from Factory Farms
The boar bristles are not from factory farms, but come from special types of wild boars raised on small farms in rugged terrains and climate conditions. Supply is limited for these unique bristles, and is why they are more expensive than those from factory farms.


Why Boar Bristles are So Good for Hair


Not All Boar Bristles are the Same
Boar bristles vary between species, age of the animal, and the climates they are raised in. In the rugged climates the boar bristles originate for Desert Breeze Distributing brushes, the boars grow especially thick bristles.

The microscopic photo at far left shows a human hair next to a bristle from a PW1 brush (from the Tibet Plateau)and a bristle from the Calcutta brush on the right(from the highland of India).Both are from different types of wild boar, and produce high quality bristles for use in premium hair brushes.

Gentle on Hair
Boar bristles are good for hair because they are similar in structure. Like hair, boar bristles are made of keratin. As seen in the microscopic photo at left, scales of a boar bristle from the PW1 brush closely resemble those of a human hair. These scales absorb the natural oils produced by the scalp, and distribute it gently down the hair shaft. Synthetic bristles cannot provide the same benefits of a quality boar bristle brush.

*Over time, regular brushing with a boar bristle brush will have a powerful effect on the overall health of your scalp and hair, and will improve the texture and vibrancy from roots to hair ends.


  • Brush size is 2" wide (brush area) x 8.75" (total length).
  • PW1- Medium stiff bristles from boars raised on the Tibet Plateau. Best for fine to medium thick hair. Bristle length is 5/8".
  • CLC - This brush has the Calcutta boar bristles, which are the stiffest bristles from boars raised in the highlands of India. Best for hair of medium thickness, or those who prefer a more rigid brush. Bristles of the Calcutta are slightly longer at 3/4".
  • For penetration through thicker hair, brushing hair in sections may be needed.
  • Handle is oiled pear wood, grown locally in Germany. The wood has an engraved image of the butterfly — a symbol of the gentle and transforming powers of nature.

Pure boar bristle hair brushes from Desert Breeze Distributing - a brush with a soul!



*Pure boar bristles naturally condition hair, improve hair texture, and reduce the need for styling products. Since boar bristles are similar in structure to human hair, they are not anti-static. If static control is needed, either smooth hair with palm of hand after each brush stroke, mist hair with water, or apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to hair before boar bristle brushing.

For best results, keep your brush free of loose hair by using a  brush cleaner or a fine tooth comb. Wash the brush in lukewarm water mixed with a touch of shampoo. Do not leave the brush to soak. Rinse the brush in clear water, then dry handle with a soft cloth. Allow to finish drying at room temperature with bristles pointing downward. Proper care will prolong the life of your natural brush. 

*Please note: Our hair brushes are guaranteed to be hygienic, in factory new condition, and completely unused. For this reason, returns on hair brushes are not accepted for any reason. If you have any questions or concerns before purchase, please contact us directly and we'll be happy to help you choose the best brush for your hair type.

    Best Boars Hair Brush!!

    Posted by K Rob on Jan 4th 2021

    I chose the longer, firmer brush option and love it. I like the other brush enough, but no where near as much as I love this brush. Works very well for a no shampoo routine. Also— very fast shipping.

    I am impressed by the quality of this hairbrush! The wood is nice and I love the butterfly on the top. The bristles are soft and make my hair more voluminous and I really like it!

    Less Breakage

    Posted by Jamie on Oct 10th 2020

    I love this brush. I was using a regular brush with plastic bristles and was noticing a lot of breakage and split ends. This brush is a lot more gentle on my hair and leaves it feeling smooth and soft.

    The brush is exactly what I hoped for. I do not have thick hair, but I found it too tedious to brush my hair each night (I have gone to no shampoo recently) in the tiny little sections my softer boar bristle brush could handle. I needed to be able to brush through my hair faster, and my new brush delivered. The tips of the bristles are quite sharp, as other reviewers I read have noted, so I am careful not to press them into my scalp, but that is a non-issue for me. I am completely satisfied with my purchase.

    Desert Breeze 100% boar bristle brushes

    Posted by Sherry on Jul 16th 2020

    I bought both of their brushes and I love them! I had bought three brushes from other companies before this I wish I had bought theirs first the first brush was from Sally's Beauty Supply cheaply made bristles come out a waste of my money. Second brush was also a waste of money. My hair is fine but curly and Tangles easily a stiff bristle one get through it and down to my scalp which feels marvelous the second one I bought since I bought them both I use II I love them both I will keep buying them and I hope you do too because I know you'll be satisfied. The quality is very good the Bristol stay in, the handle and wood of the entire brush is soft and high-quality. They're just a great product
