Antica Barbieria Colla - Natural Bristle Shaving Brush
The Natural Bristle Shaving Brush is a highly professional shaving brush with extra white natural bristles and an elegant, handmade aluminum handle.
This particular type of white natural bristles is of very good quality, and is used by the best Italian barbers and wet shavers.
In addition to the aesthetic pleasure of using such a shaving brush, only the best materials have been used, thus ensuring a long service life. The high-quality aluminum handle has been pulled from a cold-drawn piece of aluminum in order to guarantee a stable and strong grip. Each piece is polished and smoothed out individually after welding.
How to use:
According to tradition, it is advisable to foam up the shaving brush by rubbing it in the shaving cream in the sink. Dino Colla himself taught his staff to do it this way in 1904 in his famous barbershop. Use a shaving brush and a bowl to whip the shaving cream into a nice foam. Apply a small dab of product to the face with the brush using a circular motion.
Before the first use of the shaving brush, the brush should be submerged for a couple of hours in a bowl of cold, clean water so that the bristles may absorb moisture and thus be more flexible.
After shaving, wash out the brush thoroughly under cold, running water until no residue of shaving cream or soap remains in the bristles.
