Wood Type | FSC Beech Wood and Tampico Fibre.
Suited For Your Hair Type? | The Vegan Tampico Brush is best suited for finer hair types. The tampico bristles are anti static and work to re-distribute the natural oils in your hair. Tampico fibres are known for their capacity to retain moisture. Please see all our other brushes here.
Benefits of Plant Based Bristles? | There is an old saying to do ‘One hundred brush strokes every day with a natural hair brush’. This is because the structure of natural fibres are similar to that of human hair. Because of this, they are able to absorb excess grease from the scap and re-distribute it to areas of your hair where the moisture is most needed. This improves healthy hair naturally and avoids split ends. The bristles work to gently massage the roots of your hair which stimulate blood flow and over time promotes hair growth.

Wood is only a renewable and eco-friendly material if it is consciously sourced. Tropical hardwoods in particular grow very slowly and in low densities, and regenerate poorly after logging. These species are often taken from forests in non-sustainable numbers, and illegal ways.
Searching for a way of sourcing wood sustainably, SAYA Designs came across Made & Ways, sculptors who dig up and recycle root wood from old commercial plantations all across Indonesia. The roots are left behind by loggers harvesting trees on large-scale production sites. They take hundreds of years to decompose and have little value for the soil.
By using this waste material we are having as little impact on the environment as possible.
