Boar Bristle & Nylon Tufts generally used for normal to thick hair.

A Mason Pearson hairbrush is designed to provide many years of quality usage.  Each brush comes with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, but not against normal wear and tear.

Regular brushing plays an important part in the condition of your hair.  The Mason Pearson Hairbrush cleans the hair, stimulates the scalp increasing the blood flow to the hair roots.  A natural conditioning oil - sebum - comes from the hair giving it strength, suppleness and producing a healthy sheen.

To maintain the quality of the Mason Pearson Hairbrush it is not mass produced.  Most of the work is carried out by hand, using techniques pioneered and patented by the founder - Mason Pearson - over one hundred years ago and improved over succeeding generations.

Mason Pearson Hairbrushes of London, England were established as a premier hairbrush manufacturer in the 1860s.  From the time of its inception the company has pioneered hairbrushes that are designed to maximize the health and appearance of the hair and scalp.  In 1885, Mason Pearson invented and patented the pneumatic cushion for the hairbrush, thus creating a unique brush that retinas its desirability as an elegant cosmetic accessory to this day.  The brush is product in the "old world" manner, with many steps executed by hand and extra care taken to create a magnificent hair product.

Why Mason Pearson?  Hairbrushes by Mason Pearson are recognized by discriminating consumers as unique in both design and quality.  The distinctive design incorporates spired, uneven tufts of boar bristle and nylon mixture set in a pneumatic rubber pad that enables each individual tuft to penetrate through to the scalp.

Mason Pearson's ingenious brush construction achieves the desired type of scalp stimulation by adjusting automatically to the contour of the scalp without irritation.  Equally important is the quality of the bristles.  Mason Pearson uses only the finest quality natural bristle from the wild boar - preferably from the colder climates, where boar bristle grows heavy and strong for protection.  Animals are not harmed in the collection of bristle.

In addition to the all-natural boar bristle, Mason Pearson offers a mixed bristle version.  These contain a nylon strand in each tuft of pure boar bristle to afford better penetration to the scalp.  The durable nylon strand, with specially rounded ends, is longer than the boar bristle and serves primarily to massage and stimulate the scalp, bringing out the natural oils.

The company also offers all-nylon brushes designed to gently brush out he hair after shampooing.

Mason Pearson's bristle is just right!  if the bristle is too soft, it cannot penetrate to the scalp completely.  If the bristle is too hard, it can cause inflammation and soreness of the scalp.  Customers quickly discover that a Mason Pearson brush feels terrific and performs beautifully.

Made in London.

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 am a complete fanatic when it comes to my hair. It is long, dark and straight. That means I get a ton of knots and it can also look dull. This brush is the first brush that does everything it is advertised to do! It leaves my hair silky, smooth, and shiny!!! The brush design feels nice agains the scalp- no pain and no pulling and tugging through knots! This is a big investmnent for a brush, but I have read reviews where some ladies had the brush for years! To think of how much money I spend on haircuts, this brush seems worth it!!!

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I didn't like this brush at all. I have a lot of hair, but per strand it's fine. This brush made my hair very flat and seemed to distribute the oils in such a way that my hair looked greasy. I tried using it with my head upside-down, to add volume, and it just made my hair unmanageable. A former hairdresser friend of mine couldn't believe what it did to my hair. So I tried to use it on my kids and they wouldn't let me because it hurt their scalps. No go on the Mason Pearson for me. I gave it away.

        Love this brush so much I bought a second one. I have broken brushes in my hair so this is wonderful! My dog ate the first one after it was ten years old. I'm on my third. My daughter has thicker hair than I do and it leaves her hair silky and shiny smooth. A must for everyone's vanity!

          Amazing brush. The bristles get through my thick long hair nicely, and leave it shiny. A big investment for a hairbrush - but this one is worth it.

          Definitely an extravagance, but if you really take pride in your haircare, it's worthwhile. Since buying it, I've basically cut out all styling products and expensive haircuts because I simply don't need them anymore. So I figure eventually it will pay for itself.

          The "Popular" is just perfect for me. My hair is shoulder length, medium thickness, and color treated. The regular use of this brush has caused a dramatic improvement in my hair's shine, body and overall look of healthiness. It's worth the high price; I had used the imitations before and they simply don't compare.

          By Pamela

          from Berkeley, CA

          Comments about Mason Pearson Boar Bristle & Nylon Hairbrush, Large Size Popular, 1 ea:

          Mason Pearson products are quite expensive compared to the typical "cheap plastic brush", but I strongly feel the extra cost is worth it. I've owned and used a Mason Pearson hairbrush for over 20 years, and I fully expect it to last for another 20. They're solidly made with excellent-quality bristles, and they just have a special...feel to them compared to the usual mass-produced product.
          Given the high price, I wouldn't suggest buying one without seeing it in person first (or you might start with one of the less expensive Mason Pearson brushes). They're most definitely a luxury item, but for the woman who enjoys brushing her hair, it's an investment that's worth every penny. You'll never need (or want) another set of brushes.
          I use a tail comb, the Detangler and the Large Bristle brushes, and I carry a Popular in my purse. All of them are excellent products, and each serves its purpose.

          This is a great brush - and one of my favorite products. It feels wonderful and makes hair look great. I would definitely recommend it. If this is too expensive, try one of the smaller sizes - I also have the pocket size, which I keep in my purse, and love that one too.
