    Default Best 'Natural' Brushes - Your Favs!

    I am looking for brush recommendations. Ideally, I would like to have a set (hard/med/soft) with all natural bristles. I believe this may reduce static? Looking around, there isn't usually enough information on exactly what the brush is made of, especially the medium and hard. What's your fav and why? TIA!

    Usually any catalog etc says what the bristles are made out of. Plastic or natural bristle like tampico (the light beige bristles), horse hair or goat hair (face brushes).

    tampico is a medium, there is a darker brown bristle which is stiffer, and rice root is very stiff. Horse hair is soft, and goat hair is very soft.

    All of my brushes are natural bristle but I still get static! I use dryer sheets for that.

    How do you use the dryer sheets?
