Even with the addition of massage beads, it is nylon bristles still remain harder. This is especially evident in the selection of materials for men’s beard combs.

When it reaches a temperature of more than 90oC, for instance, in a hot car or sitting on the window sill in sunlight, it will begin to emit harmful ammonia gas as it begins to warp and melt.

The melting point of boar bristles is considerably higher, at above 200 degrees, and the bristles are often processed at a temperature of 100 -130 degrees, for between 30 minutes and 4 hours to straighten them. During this time, the keratin contained in the bristles does not produce any toxic gases or other harmful substances at high temperatures. So, you won’t have to worry about your hair getting tangled up with the melted plastic bristles when you’re brushing your hair whilst using a high-powered hairdryer.
