Moroccanoil Ultra-Luxurious Boar Bristle Brush Collection

Moroccanoil hair brushes

 

From the brand that gave new meaning to healthy, shiny manes, Moroccanoil® now introduces the next (and totally logical) phase of haircare with their new Ultra-Luxurious Boar Bristle Brush Collection. Performance-tested backstage at various fashion shows, and used on a number of A-list celebrities to get them red-carpet ready, these tools will provide you with “gorgeous looking hair by every brush stroke“. Ummm, yeah … I’m definitely on board for that.

More than 2 years in their creation and available in 3 styles (all prices in Canadian), these handmade brushes offer natural boar bristles which gently stimulate the scalp, while promoting shine and assist in distributing hair’s natural oils evenly along the shaft. The heat resistant lightweight, yet durable ash wood handles (embossed with the brand’s name) present a solid and easy-use grip, while the vented ceramic barrel of the round brushes promotes even heat distribution and the right amount of air-flow to help speed up drying time. Using a brush with natural bristles also aids in eliminating build-up that can dull the look of your hair, and stands up to the higher heat of styling tools much better than synthetic bristles, which can warp and sometimes even emit toxic fumes. For use on all types of hair, even ultra fine.

  • Round Brush $72.00/25 mm, $84.00/35 mm, $84.00/45 mm
  • Classic Brush $72.00
  • Teasing Brush $36.00

Moroccanoil Round Brush 2

Round Boar Bristle Brush 45 mm (CAN $84.00) – The first thing that caught my eye, was the Moroccanoil® signature aqua shade on the barrel of the brush. It made me happy, for some reason. The solid heft of the brush signifies quality to me, and running my thumb along the bristles showed that they are neither too soft & flimsy, nor scratchy hard – again, another sign that thought went into the making of this tool. Since I only have the largest of the round brushes to work with, I can’t speak for the other sizes, but if this is any example, then I don’t doubt the effectiveness of the others at all.

If you’re looking for that perfect brush to style your hair, while providing body and bounce, then this is the one. Easy to manipulate (even for a hair-styling nerd like myself), I absolutely love how this brush seems to not only grab the hair, but hold it securely as well. With my long hair, this is the perfect barrel size for creating flowing waves, although I was also successful in turning out [large] loose curls as well – without tangling the brush in my hair, I might add. The 45 mm size is mostly suited for mid to longer hair, while I’m the 25 mm would be better suited  for shorter lengths, or to create tighter curls on longer hair.

Moroccanoil Classic Brush 2

Classic Boar Bristle Brush (CAN $72.00) – Something about this paddle shape, calls to mind the image of a Victorian lady sitting in front of a vanity, while her maid tends to her hair … wish I had someone do that for me (a mega weakness of mine, someone brushing my hair, that is). I’ve traditionally eschewed this type of brush in favour of those nylon “skeleton” type brushes to dry my hair, mainly because I do have quite a bit of hair and never believed a paddle brush could get through the strands and dry it thoroughly – or quickly. Boy, was I ever WRONG.

To achieve the best results, I found that in first letting my hair air-dry for about 20 minutes (the least amount of time spent under a heat source, the better for your tresses) was key. Using this Classic Brush to dry my hair, gives me several things: to begin with, dry time is not extended as I thought it would be (in fact, it may even have been shortened), fly-aways are significantly reduced, and my hair is visibly shinier – not an easy feat to accomplish, especially when dealing with a blonde colour this shade (pale champagne), which seems to absorb light rather than reflect it as darker hues can. An unexpected bonus, however, is in the sensorial experience: running this brush through my hair turns the usually utilitarian (and often tedious) process into one of old-world decadent luxury … truly pampering, I tell you (still wish I had someone else doing the job, though).

Moroccanoil Teasing Brush

Teasing Boar Bristle Brush (CAN $36.00) – Since I don’t usually tease my hair, I didn’t think that this particular brush would benefit me in any way, but once again, I was proven wrong. With its narrow shape and triple row of staggered bristles, not only is this brush effective in teasing the hair quickly and evenly, but it manages to do that without making it look like a bird is trying to build a nest in there. After using it to tease the ‘underhair’, it became a simple matter to then smooth the topmost layer for volume that came off as sexy & just a touch tousled, not 50’s style shellacked (unless that’s the look you’re going for). Another way I found to use this brush, is in helping to create a sleek pulled-back pony; the pointed end is so useful if you’re opting for a look with a deep side part, while the bristles effectively grab any loose hairs to provide proper control. Easy-peasy, and no large & clumsy brush to hamper your efforts.

Using top-quality hair products (shampoo, conditioner, etc) is just one part of the equation to achieving envy-inducing locks; using top-quality tools, such as these Moroccanoil® Ultra-Luxurious Boar Bristle Brushes, goes a long way to realizing those results. For years now, I’ve been hearing about Mason-Pearson brushes and what a difference they make on one’s hair, but the US $150.00 price tag was off-putting, to say the least. While these Moroccanoil® Brushes still fall on the pricier side of the scale, I find that given their stellar performance and that they will most likely outlive any of my former (synthetic) brushes, not to mention the fact that they are hand made and so well-balanced, I believe the investment definitely worth the cost. Al I can say, is that my hair has never looked shinier, and that’s good enough for me.

    The brushes looks awsome & the review is so complex. I wish I could test them also, but I never seen them in Dubai :(

  2. Fedoraharp says:

    I’ve wanted a boar bristle brush for AGES. Either that or Pearwood, which is a decent vegan alternative (I’m not vegan but hey whichever option presents itself!). The thing about these brushes is, they are good for absorbing the natural oils from the scalp and distributing them evenly throughout the hair. These days with modern shampoos and thousands of products, most of us wash out our own natural oils, which in turn causes our bodies to produce more- using a boar bristle brush is a great way to let the scalp heal itself naturally!

    $72 is kind of steep for me, but oh man do I want it!

    • Eugenia says:

      You made some excellent points – if more people used a boar bristle brush (what a tongue twister, lol!) and saw the results, they’d never go back to synthetic bristles!

  3. Nancy Dines says:

    I have no clue how to use a paddle brush to dry and style my hair, but I’d like to learn how! I’m lucky I can use a round brush! (And I didn’t learn how to use that until I was 35 years old).
    Lol your comment about the bird trying to build a nest in your hair. I really did lol!!

    Seems like a great product…hmmm, and I am in the market for a new brush…:-)

    • Eugenia says:

      You’re one up on me then, Nancy – cause I’m still figuring out how to properly use a round brush (my daughter is quite proficient at it, thank God!). If you’re looking for a great product, then I really do recommend these!

  4. Linda says:

    These look great but are expensive!

    • Eugenia says:

      They definitely are pricey, but as I mentioned in my post, there are other brands even more expensive out there, such as Mason-Pearson ($150.00 for a brush?!). Another blogger friend of mine mentioned that these brushes from Moroccanoil leave your hair even softer than the Mason Pearson brushes do, so at least that might offset the higher price tag. I can tell you that I really love the way my hair looks after using these brushes, if that helps any!
