Use of the Omega Black Brush
This is a really good brush for everyday use. Most buyers are amazed by how effective it is, in getting into the stubble on their face. Boar hair is a very good type or bristle for doing exactly that. Once this Omega has been wet, it holds the water well.
After that you apply either a shaving cream, or creating a lather from a good quality shaving soap, to the brush. You then apply this to the bristles having first washed the face with hot water. Always remember to push the lather up and into the bristles to help loosen them up.
This brush holds the lather really well, so that makes shaving that little bit faster.
