Handcrafted to Exacting Precision from Tsuge Boxwood

The smooth, gentle pins glide through hair — without scraping scalp or snagging. Untangles and volumizes even the most difficult to manage hair.

Japanese lady brushing hair with tsuge

Brings out hair's natural beauty and shine. Wood pins pick up and re-distribute scalp's natural sebum and any oil you apply in a thin, even layer throughout hair.


Reduces frizz, since wood does not generate static electricity (which synthetic brushes do). Works with your hair, rather than against it.

Polished, Seamless Pins Inhibit Hair Damage & Split-ends

Polished pins caress hair instead of fighting it. Pins are seamless and smooth all around, unlike plastic combs with rough lines left from the molding process, which snag and damage hair.

Micro Pores Help Bring Out Hair's Natural Beauty and Shine

Maintains optimal and balanced levels of moisture and oil throughout your hair, promoting natural shine and gloss. In contrast to plastic, wood pins have microscopic pores which pick up and re-distribute scalp's natural sebum and any oil you apply — in a thin, even layer throughout hair.

Massages Scalp and Neckline & Stimulates Nerve Endings

Head shiatsu pressure pointsGentle, rounded pins massage scalp and neck like little fingers.

Stimulate pressure points (called Tsubo in Japanese Shiatsu acupressure massage) for relaxation, revitalizing hair and reducing fatigue.

How to Care for Your Brush

5ml Aya Japanese Camellia (Tsubaki) oil

With proper care, Tsuge brushes last for years and years, and get softer and more polished with time. The wood becomes naturally darker and richer in color. Tsuge brushes render their best performance when regularly cleaned with Camellia oil.

  • Use a soft toothbrush and a few drops of Camellia oil to clean your brush. Wipe with a soft cloth.
  • Keep your brush protected in your purse or your vanity drawer, as you would your high quality accessories.

Every brush comes with a 5 ml bottle of our best Camellia oil.

About Tsuge and Japanese Acupressure Head Massage

Tsuge, also known as boxwood, is one of the densest, hardest types of wood. This is one reason why Tsuge brushes can be crafted to such high polish and finish.

Most other hard woods are brittle, which makes them vulnerable to shattering. Tsuge is notable in the sense that its extreme hardness is combined with its remarkable flexibility.

The Process

Boxwood is a small tree, which grows extremely slowly. This is one reason why it is so dense. The wood is harvested from trees which are at least 35 years old, cleaned and fumigated, and undergo a long drying process in special warehouses for at least 10 years. After that, pieces with best wood grain are carefully selected for handcrafting — undergoing multiple steps involving rough-shaping, carving, polishing and soaking with Camellia oil. 

Acupressure Head Massage

Japanese acupressure (Shiatsu) is an ancient healing technique based on stimulating body's Ki (pronounced "kee") energy flow.

This stimulation is applied to strategic pressure points, called Tsubo, on “meridian” energy pathways of the human body.

Stimulating certain Tsubos can induce general relaxation, reduce fatigue and revitalize hair (see below).

  1. Absolutely ADORABLE........

    Posted by Sandra on 14th Apr 2017

    Every year I always make me a gift on my birthday, this year I bought this brush,… and I must say couldn’t make a better choice…!
    I have it only since few days, yet grooming the hair with this brush has already become ritual full of pleasure. The rows massage the scalp very efficiently, just in few moments without pushing hard they awaken the “roots” under the scalp. And the hair looks somehow more “alive”, more vivid.
    It is worked so skillfully, and the Tsuge wood itself feels absolutely unique in the hand, extremely smooth, definitely different from other types of woods. This is really one of those items who last a lifetime… I’m so so so happy to finally have it. Will be a huge blessing for my hair in years coming, I just feel it…

  2. Solid brush, golden coloured brush, Excellent quality!

    Posted by Uzma on 25th Nov 2015

    I have a Mason Pearson Brush that destroys my hair and irritates a tender balding spot on my crown. The shipping was quick, got it only four days when I was expecting it 2 weeks later. Carefully and beautifully packaged. I used the brush once, it tamed my frizzy hair and soothed the tender spot on my head. I would recommend getting this brush if you're looking to make an investment. Easier to clean than my Mason Pearson brush. Very solid and light. They included a complimentary gift and which was great. I am officially converted to traditional Japanese natural hair products. Great service, please keep up the exceptional work!!

  3. Top quality, love this!

    I have been viewing this site for over 8 months, always intending to purchase products but never actually doing it for fear of being duped into the latest 'craze' and wasting my money. I finally succumbed and thought I would purchase this brush to begin with. I already own a traditional Japanese tsuge wood comb, but found that the ends of my hair where it's damaged can be a little hard to comb through as the teeth are so fine. I. So glad I got this brush! The quality of the craftsmanship of this brush is top notch, definitely worth every penny. It's sturdy, very gentle and gives a wonderful stimulating massage to my scalp. ALL of the brush is made from high quality boxwood, not just the teeth like I've seen some websites advertise. My hair has improved in these past couple of weeks of using this amazing brush, I'm that impressed I came back to order the camelia oil and seaweed hair cleanser.

    One very happy customer, thank you so much
