If these bristles are boar, then I'm a nauga's uncle. Look like plastic to me...expensive plastic if not boar bristle. I will be inspecting these more closely when I have a chance.

If plastic I will complain to Amazon and get back to you on this.

1/14/14: In my Forensics Lab the next day:

Ok, my wife LOVES these two brushes! However, upon close examination they are not 100% boar bristle, in fact they are not 100% even natural bristle.

The thicker SHINY bristles looked suspicious when I first looked at them. Thick, stiffer and shiny says plastic to me. I pulled a few out and heated them up over a candle and they melt just like plastic would. Pretty sure bristle would not melt.

That being said there ARE other bristles in there that look natural and may in fact be boar or piglet or whatever. Even still the shiny plastic bristles far out number the natural looking ones. I wouldn't even say they are 50/50.

To be fair no where does it say 100% boar bristle, or even 100% natural bristle...but to me it's still misleading to state "boar bristle" (which at 15 bucks would be a steal) - it should be touted as perhaps "contains a small amount of boar bristle" or even "these brushes are manufactured on machines that also produce boar bristle brushes".

Ok...does it make a difference if the wife loves them and the price is cheap? Ethically/morally to me...Yes, but...there you go with that relative moralism. Sigh.

Last note, as I was about to heat up the bristles the wife says you're not pulling more bristles out of the new brush are you? More? No...only one or two...what do you mean more? Oh, she says...the brush loses bristles every time I use it.

ARGGG..

You decide...I'm on the fence. Hope this helps you.

I've gone through so many hairbrushes looking for one that I can use while drying my hair straight that won't break my hair. This is a wonderful hairbrush that has natural boar bristles and a wooden base and handle. The bristles are long enough to go through your hair and plenty big enough to wrap long hair around when blow drying straight. The brush is also nice because it is all one piece and wood. My old brushes had groves where the handle and the brush part met or had groves in the handle that my hair would get wrapped around and pulled causing it to break. I have so many little hairs standing on my head that resulted from broken hairs that caught around certain parts of brushes. This brush is wonderful because there are no groves or areas for your hair to get caught.

I would have given this brush 5 stars but the only thing I don't like about his brush is that the handle is too thin. For the size of the brush, the handle should be a little bigger. It does get pretty uncomfortable to use this brush for my long thick hair towards the end. I can blow dry about half of my hair before this brush starts to hurt my hand. I end up having to take a break and finish the rest. This would be the perfect brush if the handle could be a little thicker. If your hair takes less time to dry or is shorter, you may not have any issues with this brush. Other than the handle thickness, this brush is perfect!

The brush I received was NOT a Boar Bristle Brush.It is almost completely plastic bristles. If you look real close there might be some boar bristles in there but very few.

This is an awesome brush to create lots of volume and shine while taming frizz on my short hair. I like it so much that I just ordered its brother the paddle brush. I agree with another reviewer that the handle could be a little thicker to make it easier to use, but if you focus on pulling rather than turning the brush, it isn't as bad. But most importantly it does a great job giving my hair some volume while keeping it smooth and shiney.

Even with the skinnier handle, I'd buy it again :)

I specifically purchased this $30 brush as I had purchased a boars hair brush over 30 years ago and am unable to match the quality. I have yet to find a brush to get through my thick hair as I dry it. My daughter has actually said the only things she asks for in my will is my 30 year old brush! I have purchased 4 brushes over the last four months, having spent over $100 looking for a similar brush and am unable to locate one. This one did not meets my expectations.

I have purchased only 2 of these brushes in 15 years! They are excellent quality and easy to care for. I highly recommend Spornette for the value, so much brush for such a great price.

Not a boar brush, too expensive. Buy only if you have long or very curly hair. Also the brush bristles are too soft for my hair and the handle is not easy to hold, nothing to grip on to.

I had been looking for a good boars hair brush and searched Amazon. Turns out this was also awarded the best brush for blowouts and has great reviews everywhere. they didn't lie, this brush is great. I have long fine hair, down to my butt and this brush goes through it like silk and then my hair is much more even as far as oils go, usually with other brushes my roots stay greasy quickly but this one make it more distributed making my blowout last longer.
