Angelo David Brushes

Angelo David Brushes

This holiday season, give your loved ones the gift of pampering. The perfect stocking stuffers for beauty buffs are the Angelo David Classic Handcrafted Paddle Brushes, which promote healthier hair by stimulating the scalp through their ideal balance of naturally conditioning boar bristles and gently separating nylon bristles. During styling or brushing, they penetrate to the roots, evenly distributing natural oils and gently smoothing the cuticle, leaving hair with a healthy sheen. Precise bristle placement ensures tangle-free brushing and inhibits split ends. All brushes have double-cushioned, flexible padding that adjusts to the contours of the scalp and a balanced handle for excellent grip and control.
