I never thought that I could say with a straight face that I use an eco-friendly hairbrush. What does that even mean?

It means Forest Stewardship Council-certified wood. It means natural rubber. It means synthetic- and animal-free products. It means rugged, natural beauty.

I got the Widu recycled wood large oval brush last month and have fallen in love with it. It's made in Italy and has wooden bristles that massage the scalp as you pull the brush through your hair. The brushes have a protective beeswax/linseed oil coating—no toxic lacquer here.

Who would have thought that a beauty tool could be so...beautiful?

Perhaps this brush would make a great stocking stuffer for the eco-conscious stylista on your holiday list? I may give a few to my girlfriends, too. The purse-sized, colorful brushes are very chic and beautiful.
