How to Pick the Right Brush!
Caring for your fine Fuller hairbrush

How to Select the Right Brush for You!

  • For those that prefer a medium-bristle nylon brush that won't scratch or tear your hair, a great choice is either the 530 or 531 acrylic brush. 

  • The flat (professional style) brushes such as the 531, 527 or 515 are great for straight, short or fine hair. 

  • The  half-found models work for all types of hair, helping style the hair and adding soft curves and curls.  Brushes such as the acrylic 530, the 524 Lustrebrush® or the Beechwood 511 are really great for short curly hairdos, or for wavy hair of any length.

  • If you plan to give a men's hairbrush as a gift, try the traditional Men's Retro Hair Brush, A4004.

  • Men with long or very thick hair may prefer the longer bristles in the 527 Natural Bristle Professional Lustrebrush® or the 515 Beech Natural Bristle Professional Style.

  • Most women with permed, dyed or delicate hair must use a natural boar bristle brush to avoid damage to their hair and distribute the hair's natural oils, giving it a healthy-looking shine.  They may choose from the Lustrebrush®  524 1/2 round or 527 professional style; or the Beechwood 511 1/2 round or 515 professional style.

Care for your fine Fuller hairbrush for most years of use.

  • All-nylon or acrylic brushes (both backing and bristles) can be washed in warm or moderately hot water with degreaser or dish detergent.  Rinse, then lay on a towel with bristles up to cool and air dry before use.

  • Natural bristle brushes need special care, just like a fine cashmere sweater.  Don't use very hot water.  Never, never use any kind of bleach, not even hydrogen peroxide.  Let them dry well before using.

  • Plastic back brushes with natural bristles can be submerged in warm water with shampoo or a mild detergent.  Swish to clean, but don't let them soak!  Remove promptly, rinse well, and lay on a towel with bristles up.  Do not use natural bristle brushes until thoroughly dry, as the bristles are most vulnerable to damage when damp. 

  • Wooden block brushes should never be submerged in water.  Put a little warm water with shampoo or very mild detergent in a shallow basin or the lavatory.  Swish the bristle part in the water to clean the bristles.  Empty the basin, fill with clear warm water and rinse in the same way.  Lay on a towel with bristles DOWN so they will not drain into the wooden block.  Do not use until completely dry.

  • Natural bristle brushes come in random lengths.  Although Fuller cuts them to size during manufacturing, the loss of some bristles in the first week or three of use is normal, especially in the case of the soft gentler brushes.    On rare occasions, the fallout will continue.  Even more rare, a few brushes have natural bristles that develop a bad smell after the first washing and drying.  If this occurs, contact your  representative or the main office.

  • Sometimes a person complains that the bristles on the center of their half-round brush are breaking off.  This is mostly due to improper brushing.   When using the half-round brush, one should turn the wrist so the bristles on all sides contact the hair, which then curls around the brush, helping to conserve perms, curls and waves.  If the user brushes hard with a straight motion, a half-round brush may become damaged in the center.  One solution is to purchase a professional brush, which requires a straight brushing motion.

Enjoy your quality Fuller hairbrush!
