I've had nothing but problems with this brush since I bought it. About 2 months ago, I picked up the C&E Best Badger brush. In the first week of using it, I was losing about 5 hairs per day. I thought it was normal at first. Maybe the brush was just being broken in? Well, 2 months have passed and I still lose about 5 hairs on it every shave AND it barely retains any water. About 2 weeks ago, I decided that maybe it just needs a good cleaning. So I soaked it in a minor borax solution for a little while, shook it out, and it still can't lather for crap. So my question is: should I toss this brush with Badger Pattern Baldness (BPB? lol) or is there anything else I can do to save this one? In the first 3 weeks, I had no problem generating lather with it in case folks were wondering.
