I was reading on here about people saying that boar brushes uses more product then badger to get a good lather. So I thought I would try it out and see if that was true. (To be honest I was really bored )
Up on the plate are:
The Body Shop Synthetic Brush
Van Der Hagen Boar Brush
Frank Shaving Finest Badger Brush
and Proraso Green!
*The synthetic brush is still new and hasn't been broken in yet.
*The boar has been broken in for an accelerated 1 month.
*The brushes were soaked for 5 minutes
*Each Brush was loaded for exactly 30 seconds.
Synthetic 44 seconds
Badger 29 seconds
Boar 29 seconds
*Unfortunately I wasn't measuring lather volume, I just stopped lathering when there was a sufficient amount to start shaving with. But I would say that the badger and boar had about the same amount of lather.
The synthetic took the longest at 44 sec. and had the least lather, but it isnt very fair because it hasn't been broken in. I had a the same TBS syn brush that I used exclusively for 1 year that I honestly think would out perform both the badger and boar. Both in lathering time and volume. But I had it replaced and this one is still too stiff...
This is my first time ever doing anything like this. I'm thinking about making it a hobby. So any advice would be appreciated!
