Nothing looks better than a natural bristle brush. Well, some things do, but when limiting the scope to personal hygiene and cleaning products, I think it's a fair statement. So, when I spotted Swissco tortoiseshell/badge bristle brushes for under five bucks at the amazing Merz Apothecary in the lobby of the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago on Saturday, I scooped up a load. They feel a bit odd on the teeth, but look absolutely wonderful sitting in the bathroom. AND a couple weeks back, Porter and I were lucky enough to have our hair done by a guy who's coiffed some pretty amazing dos for some pretty amazing people. He said he's never found a brush better than the natral bristle one his grandmother used to use to brush her wigs. So, hopefully the one I got from Kent will be 10% as great.
