The Best Brush You Can Buy
*****This is a review for a large Mason Pearson brush made of eight rings mixed boar bristle and nylon. The longer bristles are nylon and the shorter ones are boar bristle. It is a beautiful heirloom brush worth every penny of the incredibly high price.All of the larger Mason Pearson brushes, including this one, come with a cleaning brush, so that you can easily clean loose hairs out of your brush.There are two things you need to know when you’re ready to buy a Mason Pearson brush of any sort. One is the size: full-size (the largest size), handy (medium sized), or pocket (the smallest size). This is important not so much because of where the brush will be kept (say, in your handbag), but because of the bristle length of the various sizes. The smaller sizes have shorter bristles. The bristles have to be able to reach your scalp, and massage it and distribute the oils throughout your hair. If you want a small brush but you have thick or long hair, you’d do better with a larger size.The other consideration is the bristle type. Do you want a mixed bristle brush like this one that is part boar bristle and part nylon? What is most comfortable and performs the best with your hair. This mixed bristle brush will work well for you if your hair is fine to normal and not too long or too thick. Otherwise, you’ll need to go with the Detangler because the bristles are stiffer and can reach down through all of your hair to the scalp; the Detangler is the only Mason Pearson brush that can reach the scalp of extremely thick hair. Mason Pearson also makes an All Boar Bristle Brush for finer or shorter hair but I have never tried it.So, this mixed bristle brush is for normal, finer, and shorter hair. I bought it for myself but my husband uses it; although I have short hair it is very thick and straight and coarse and the brush bristles won’t reach all the way to my scalp, but slides over the top hairs. My husband loves it dearly though, and really enjoys using it himself, or as a special treat, allowing me to brush his hair. This makes the expense of a Mason Pearson brush well worth the money–it’s a luxury item and the purchase is an investment–but it’s worth it. If you’re the type of person who would rather enjoy an evening at home having your hair brushed by your spouse instead of going to dinner and a movie, then you can justify the cost. That’s how we did it :)For additional information on Mason Pearson visit their web site at masonpearson dot com.Highly recommended.*****
The look and feel
of this brush is beautiful. I have not used it yet, but it does feel very nice. I used it briefly but not enough to really say if what my experience has been with it. I have super curly hair and I wanted a great brush for the times when I do my hair straight (which by the way is a 3+ hr process) and want to maintain it to the best of my abilities. Reading all the great reviews made me invest in this brush. I hope to get some great results.
BEST BRUSH EVER!!
I love this brush!! The perfect mixture of nylon and Boar Hair makes this brush easily glide through your hair creating a soft and shiny appearance. The nylon massages your scalp. It’s extremely well made and a beautiful brush to own.
Great. I always buy this brush even though it’d very expensive. I like to take good care of my hair.
I love this brush!
I have long hair that tangles very easily. I use Aveda’s paddle brush for detangling. But this brush is wonderful for giving your hair a great brushing! And, you will have it forever!
I really do like this and it does seem to brush through my hair easier and not so many fly aways and feels more soft.
