Who doesn’t use a comb or brush in their daily routine nowadays? When it comes to hair, we don’t really think much of anyone else’s but our own. And let’s face it, that’s not selfish, but there are some things we should still keep in mind when buying a new brush for our hair; to make sure it isn’t someone else’s.[spacer]
- Check the label, if it says 100% boar bristle for example, or really any percent, NEXT!
- Check to see if the company labels it vegan. Of course a hair brush can be vegan and not labeled as such (i.e nylon, plastic, etc.) but there is still a possibility that it is labeled as such.[spacer]

Again, these are just SOME of the many companies that offer cruelty-free brushes and the chances are you may have been using them all along, but there’s also a chance you were using animal hair without knowing. Either way, there’s no better way than to educate yourself and become aware of what things are made of and how they made. It’s your body it is going on (or in) and you deserve to know! But then again, it’s the animals’ bodies, too!
Luckily, making the change can be simple once you are educated with the information you need to know to make that right decision. If the box isn’t very useful when it comes to knowing what the brush is made of (it should be) then check online under the description of the brush. Still no luck? Contact the store personally and demand an answer!
Chances are, if they sell vegan or cruelty-free products, they will sell vegan brushes, but it’s best to be safe than sorry.
Remember “natural hair” is only nature on the animal it belongs to! And for those of you wondering how to clean your cruelty-free brushes, check out the video below.
