Note: Brush is in new condition and packaging, and is of excellent quality. It is only discounted due to an odd grain pattern or flaw in the wood handle. Even though this can make the brush unique, we do our best to offer consistent products when purchased from our main inventory. The brushes on this page are still warrantied against defects in quality and workmanship. Product photos on this page are not of actual discounted items being offered. 


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. 
  • PW1-S - Same as PW1, but with softer, more pliable bristles. Best for short, thinning hair, or for those with very sensitive scalps.
  • Calcutta - Stiffest bristles from boars raised in the highlands of India. Best for hair of medium thickness, or those who prefer a more rigid brush. 
  • 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.

*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.

    A great brush I loved it so much I got one for my pet.

    Posted by L on Oct 1st 2022

    I just can't say enough good things about these brushes..though I can't say I love the just pins brush b/c I need to move the oils in my hair around I can say it gets all the snags and tangles out. But yes I got of these for myself and then one day when I was brushing my pet I thought I wonder if this brush would help make it's fur look better b/c it was looking kind of dry and sad so I got one for them and in just a few days said pets fur looks SO much better..they really should come out with a line of pet brushes but either way this brush works great. ^_^ <3

    Its brilliant!

    Posted by Maria on Sep 2nd 2021

    This is the first brush I have had that I absolutely love. Usually, I buy a brush and don't use it more than once because my hair falls, or it's rough, or the static or just something else. I got the 'soft' as I have fine hair and am always extra careful with my scalp. I brush in sections and it gently massages my scalp and makes the hair fall better and visibly smoother. The brush itself is very well made and light, the bristles are great and it does a fabulous job. The quality is great and the product is what it says it is. LOVE it!

    This is the first boar bristle that I own. After doing some research online, I have discovered that this one is recommended by quite a lot of people. I have been using it for a week now, and I must say that I am pleased. I believe it distributes the natural oils that the scalp produces well. Although cleaning the brush itself does take up time, it is quite easy. I just followed the instructions that came with the brush, and I make sure the base of the boar hairs (where it meets the wood) doesn't get wet.

    I'm unsure why this brush fell into the discounted category. They must have some high standards! While the wood is a bit darker than pictured, it's very well constructed, feels solid and my kid loves it and says it makes her hair shiny like a princess. A great value that will obviously last years longer than most of the mass produced junk out there.

    Boar bush size and bristles

    Posted by Lori on Jun 26th 2021

    Wood handle is very nice. The handle is too small for my hands and not comfortable to hold. Not all bristles are stiff . It’s mixed with a lot of soft bristles. I have a lot of fine short hair and the brush does not go through my hair all the way. I will be looking for another brush with stiffer bristles.
