Horse Hair

It's not a badger and it's not a boar, it's a Horse Hair. Taken from the mane and tail, this unique brush material offers more softness than a boar brush, but a better price than badger brushes. There is also great structure to this hair making it easy to grab that soap or cream and form a luxurious lather. Vie-Long may be the only one still making horse hair shaving brushes.

Great brush
9/18/2016
Vie-Long 14030 Horse Hair Shaving Brush, Ivory & Silver.This brush is very good. It was a gift from my wife when i expressed interest in a horse hair brush since i have badger, boar, and synthetic. After letting it soak, it gave a great lather. It's as expected after research- a great middle ground between badger and boar. it's has some backbone but is very soft with good water retention. it is also very attractive in person. it's got a good size (my hands are average) and gave no trouble with loading a good lather. as with other hair brushes, it had a little odor but i expect it will wear off as my badgers did. if you're curious with trying something different than badger but don't want the harshness that can be boar and don't like synthetic, horse is definitely your route. plus, for those who care, it's cruelty free.

Vie-Long 04312 Cachurro Horse Hair Professional Shaving Brush.I've had this brush for 3 years and love it. It is still like new. No hair loss at all. I'm 48 years old and been wet shaving since I was 14. I've used cheap boar brushes in the past and hated them. I'm a cowboy here in Texas and ride often. It's just natural that I own a horse hair brush. Lol. I highly recommend this brush for any new wet shaver or seasoned veteran. FYI there is a matching bowl available through Vie-Long. Best Grooming Tools has them.

Nice brush

Vie-Long 13070 Horse Hair Shaving Brush, Wood Handle.This is a really nice brush. The wood handle is quite attractive. The only down side is it's size. I am a fairly large man, with larger than average hands and the handle is quite small. It's not a huge problem, but I would like the handle to be a bit larger.

Vie-Long 14080 Horse Hair Shaving Brush, Red/White Acrylic Handle.This is my first horsehair brush. Immediately, I liked it as the more compact size makes my soap last forever.. It's the perfect amount of lather for two to three passes. And the brush itself lathers extraordinarily well in a bowl, though it is softer than boar on the face- best badger or softer! BUT.. I recommend getting some tutelage on a forum or youtube about care of horsehair brushes- Being a bit of a masher (my old boar brushes are pretty splayed), I wound up with a bit of a birdsnest in the center of the brush which i had to detangle. I was immediately disappointed and shelved it- I was going to try and sell it. But the few great shaves I had made me want to try to use it right and now, with less pressure (ease up if it feels scratchy at all) and slightly different motions (figure 8s instead of circles, incidentally) I get great lather and the brush doesn't tangle- and it's even smoother and softer on the face. I'm so glad I took a little care to figure this fantastic brush out-

Damn Good Brush.

Vie-Long 04312 Cachurro Horse Hair Professional Shaving Brush.My best badger brush had lost too many hairs over the years, and was due for a replacement. Looking to save some $$$, I took my chances ordered this Vie Long horse hair brush. I am thoroughly pleased with the brush, and don't feel I compromised at all in not purchasing another best badger. It has its own unique characteristics that are appealing -- it has some of the scratchiness of a pure badger, but at the same time, the softness of a best badger. It holds water well, and has no problems at all creating thick lather, and holding it without reloading for a second pass. The handle alone is worth the purchase price -- very weighty and substantial. It has a horsey smell to it, but I found that it went away in a couple of weeks. For a new wet shaver, I wouldn't hesitate recommending this brush, as it is affordable, and its performance is not only unique but can hold its own against pure badger. If you're an established wet shaver and want to try something different, I can't imagine anyone could be disappointed with Vie Long horse hair.
