The perfect care of a Simpson shaving brush (although it actually applies to most shaving brushes):
Preparation of the brush
The Simpson shaving brush should be left to soak in hot water a few minutes before shaving to allow the bristles to soften and retain heat. The correct water temperature should be the one that allows you to immerse your hand without burning it excessively. Too much heat could damage the hair irreversibly.
Application of shaving soap
Simpson does not recommend applying soap to the face through circulatory movements. This operation potentially makes the hair structurally more fragile towards the base of the same.
Final cleaning of your Simpson shaving brush
This is the most "critical" phase for all brushes. It is necessary to make sure that all soap residues are removed from the knot, rinsing it with warm, clean water. Then gently tighten the base of the knot to evaluate if completely free of residues and finally, caress the bristles on a soft cloth. Leave the hair to dry completely on the support (if available) or in a ventilated area (such as near an open window). Allow the brush to dry completely between uses to avoid mold formation which could damage the hair. A correct drying cycle could take up to 48 hours, for this reason, the purchase of a Simpson second shaving brush is highly recommended.
