Just wondering....I have been at this DE shaving for about 3 weeks or so and I must say it is actually quite enjoyable. I think I have a problem though as I am up to three brushes and just purchased my second birth razor to go with a Edwin Jagger. Nevertheless, is there a problem with using a hair dryer to dry a shaving brush. It seemed to have really helped to make my first brush (a Wal-mart VDH boar) bloom quite well. It's pretty soft already. If I'm not mistaken, the idea is to have the hairs split....the dryer seems to encourage this quite well. So to repeat the question...will using a hair dryer to (mostly) dry the brush after use harm a shaving brush?
