If you’re looking for a solid grooming brush that you may never need to replace, this should fall really highly on your list.
This super-high quality brush is also darn good looking and built to last for decades. The bristles do a great job of massaging your scalp and it’s remarkably comfortable in most hands.
Military style boar bristle brushes often work best with short and thin hair, performing equally well on straight as well as coiled and kinky hair. One reason we made this our top choice is that it also does an awesome job with thick and wavy hair - so basically everyone can enjoy it.
Unsurprisingly, it does a fine job keeping your beard in order too - perhaps even adding that bit of sheen you’ve been desperate to see coming through.
This is a grooming brush, not a styling brush and has those gorgeous boar bristles, so you should never pull it through wet hair.
Kent brushes come with an instruction guide for cleaning and you should definitely follow that to the letter.
Yes, the price can be prohibitive, but it’s absolutely worth the splurge.
Brush type: Oval military palm brush
Handle: Being a military brush, it doesn’t have a handle, but it measures 5” by 2¾“
The quality beechwood back is big enough that it fits in larger hands without becoming uncomfortable in smaller ones.

If they’re a little too stiff, you can soften them by soaking them in soft water for a few minutes.
The bristles feature wider gaps for a better pull.

Now, we know that’s a hefty price for a brush, but it has the quality backing from the Kent brand. And, in most cases, this brush is returnable within 30 days.
