[B] How to use the brush [/ b]

While it is necessary to have a good quality shaving brush ', you must also follow the right precautions for use and do a thorough maintenance, perhaps along the following decalogue.

1.Before use, Always wet your brush with warm water if possible because 'his hair swells and retains the best sapone.Cercare not let it dry during the shave because' the foam loses its proprieta'emollienti.

2.Strofinarlo slightly (if using a bowl) when the soap and 'soft because' makes too much cream, paste, soap and if the 'hard end lascera'una foam useful for the next time.

3.Se using shaving cream tube, usarne little at a time (about 2 cm) put half 'on each side of the face and never on the brush, because' most of the cream in hair and would find it difficult 'to leave .

4.Se using the soap hard (stick), move the brush on its end or rather straight face: beard grown during the night they pick '(scratch) the right dose.

5.Usare the brush in a circular motion, making the rounds to complete the tip to avoid weakening the core of setole.Evitare in the most 'NOT use the brush crushing it on the chin because' time is not in accordance with the "hole the tuft.

6.Per avoid splashing or soap on the mirror in the bathroom, keep the hair together with the help of four fingers (especially over longer distances) in order to make more 'short and longer' drive the brush, copying such taken by the customary ritual of the barber.

7.Finito to use the brush to make him lose the soap left in the hair, put as soon as possible perpendicularly under running water until the water returns trasparente.Le substances in shaving soaps can be harmful for animal hair.

8.Scuotere the brush making sure to keep the hair down and squeeze the clump with your fingers to bring out the water rimasta.Contrariamente to what is often suggested, 'well why not dry with the towel' you traumatise further hair brush.

9.Appenderlo upside down on its support for it to dry well, not to enter the water in the handle and make sure that the clump is [the] humidity combined [s], so 'that you will find the day after the normal form and not with the hair open and expanded, not useful to schiuma.Ovviamente to dry away from heat.

10.Se possible, avoid using it twice in one day (to rest), rinse occasionally with a water borica.Se you must store it for long, once completely dry, protect it with rich naftalina.In travel if not used, the brush must be placed in cylindrical form to keep the hair as long as the container is perforated to allow the necessary ventilation.
