Handy Mixture Bristle/Nylon Mix -Ruby Handle, For Medium Length Coarse To Normal Hair.

Developed and patented more than 100 years ago, our Mason Pearson Hair Brush is the ultimate grooming tool. Only the finest, premium-grade boar bristle, which is gentle to the hair and scalp, is used. Brushing with a Mason Pearson Hair Brush is the best way to distribute the natural oils while exfoliating the scalp and stimulating circulation to the hair follicles. The patented pneumatic cushion conforms to the contours of the scalp, which optimizes brushing with minimal effort.

All Mason Pearson Hair Brushes are hand made in England and carry a one year limited warranty against manufacturing defects. The animals are not harmed in the collection of the boar bristle. (Nylon cleaning brush is included.) This "Mixture" has a nylon spike to facilitate brushing through thick, textured, or wavy hair, yet may be used on all hair types.

Warnings:

Proper care is the key to preserving the integrity of the brush.

  • Never apply hair sprays and mousses directly to the pad.  This will accelerate its deterioration.
  • Do not direct a hot hair dryer directly onto the bristles.  Extended heat from a hair dryer can damage the brush.  The bristle can snap, the rubber and nylon can begin to melt and perish, and the plastic can bend out of shape.
  • Do not use the hairbrush on applications for which it was not designed.  e.g. it is not designed to be used on animals.
  • The brush should not be left continuously in strong sunlight.  The rubber perishes more quickly due to the ultraviolet light.  The sun's heat can also distort the handle. 

Mason Pearson Bros Ltd.

Since the function of the brush is to clean soil from the hair the brush should be cleansed frequently.  A cleaning brush is included with all brushed (except pocket and child sizes) which is used to remove trapped hair and scales from the bristles.  There are two recommended cleaning methods.

Dry clean it frequently:  Dead hair and scales from the scalp can clog the pad and bristles of your hairbrush.  Draw the cleaning brush across the bristles from end to end.

When more thorough cleaning is needed, follow these simple steps:

  1. Wash it occasionally: Dip the Cleaning Brush only in a lather of lukewarm, soapy water using a mild soap.  Do not use detergents or ammonia.  Use the Cleaning Brush to brush the bristles of your hairbrush in the same way as for dry cleaning.  Hold the hairbrush so that it is sloping downward and no water can enter the little air hole at the end.  This should never be blocked, either while cleaning or when the brush is in use.
  2. Dip the Cleaning Brush in clean water and repeat brushing movement
  3. Shake hairbrush to remove moisture and leave to dry with hand up and pad pointing down.  Never dry bristles with a towel.  Never soak the brush or leave it on its back to dry. 

Full cleaning instructions are included with each brush.  Failure to comply with these care instructions will render the manufacturer's warranty null and void.

    I've never been able to find a better hairbrush than this one. Have been using Mason Pearson hairbrushes for over 30 years and have owned less than 4. Had to get new ones because I lost them, not because they wore out. My first hairbrush I had for over 10 years. Excellent for fine hair as it does not pull or rip. The price for this hairbrush at drugstore.com is the best around and when additional discounts are offered, all the better! You will love this brush!! My teenage daughters with long fine hair love this brush too!!

    I recently purchased this brush hoping to replace my lost Mason Pearson brush I purchased 5 years ago. I just received the brush for Christmas 2006, and to my shock and dismay, the quality of brush is extremely inferior to my purchase of 5 years ago. The bristles of the brush are now shorter by about 30%, and of inferior quality to my former Mason Pearson brush. You can see places where the seams of the rubber are poorly glued to the body of the brush. Sad. The body of the brush lacks the weight and substance of my former MP brush with the material of this "newer" brush being a lightweight, plastic-type substance that looks and feels cheap. The box the brush came in looks cheap, and now has a large plastic open window in the front, like the boxes used for Barbie dolls. The owners manual is disappointing; instead of a nice small booklet, you get some loose leaf piece of paper that is tri-fold and looks like it was printed on my home PC. I will be returning it.

    I love my Mason Pearson hairbrush, I have had mine for 18 years, it's in beautiful condition. My hair is long and wavey with a lot of body; I ended up breaking the handles off the hair brushes I used or the expensive salon brushes would fall apart in a year or two, not the Handy Mixte. The cost of the Mason Pearson hair brush is well worth the price!

    I've had my Mason Pearson brush for over 15 years. Yes, the same brush! I also have the pocket size one for travel. This is the BEST brush your money will ever buy. You take care of your hair by using good shampoos and conditioners or you may spend a small fortune at your hair salon, then why ruin your hair by using a cheap brush? This is the only brush you will ever need or buy. Worth every dollar!

    This is a great brush. It is very stimulating on the scalp. I wish the bristles were a little longer, but other than that I love the quality of this styling tool.
