Hey, Gents, how long does it take for a badger brush not to shed anymore? How many uses?

In my experience it should only shed a couple hairs the first few shaves but shouldn’t do so after that.

Some brushes never shed and some seem never to stop.

It depends on how dense the knot is. One of my brushes is a Simpsons Chubby 2. Out of all of my brushes this is the most dense. It actually shed hair for many months. Then, it stopped and never shed again. I think I have about 19 or 20 brushes except for two all 2 band badger. None of the other brushes have ever shed. However, the Chubby only shed a hair or two each time I used it. If you think the shading is it excessive contact the manufacture.

My Chubby shed from day one thru 10+months about 20 hairs every shave.  Properly broken in, cleaned and hung. Finally sent it back to UK at great expense and hassle Been 2 months resolving
