I have been wet shaving for about 3 weeks now using a badger hair brush that my wife got me for Christmas as part of a brush/razor/soap bowl stand setup. I don't really know anything about the brush other than it is badger hair. I think the set is an Edwin Jagger, but I couldn't find a name anywhere on it and the box was just plain white. I can try to get a picture of it tonight if that might help... Anyway, I've been using the brush basically every day since I got it on Christmas, and I have noticed that the last couple of days the brush feels much more scratchy or 'scritchy' on my face when I'm applying lather. The bristles also seem to be generally more stiff when loaded with lather than they used to be. Is this normal for badger hair brushes as they 'break in' over time? If so, how much longer should I expect it to continue and how much more 'scritchy' is it likely to get after this much time has passed? Could this be an indication that I'm not getting it rinsed out completely?
