Boar Bristle tufts generally used for fine to normal 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.

      Comments about Mason Pearson Boar Bristle Hairbrush, Handy Bristle, 1 ea:

      While the brush is gentle it will probably take time to work up to 3-5 minutes of use per day to avoid scalp irritation. The handle is plastic which I later found out is the only option for the size. But it still appears to be a quality handle. The box was very beat up but the instructions were included and the brush was not damaged.

            I was not at all impressed with this hair brush. First of all, it's made of a very lightweight, cheap molded plastic. Secondly, the bristles are incredibly stiff and hurt my scalp. Lastly, I used it once and it added a great deal of static electricity to my hair (I have fine hair). I don't understand why these brushes are so expensive. It certainly didn't feel like a quality hair brush.

              I Love my Mason Pearson brush. It is one of my prized possessions. It makes my hair shine and my scalp feel so good. It doesn't pull on the hair and break it at all. Having the best tool for the best job is what this brush is about. Quality bristles are a far cry from the cheap brushes you get at the store. A brush DOES make a difference. The pocket size is perfect for my purse and works for my medium fine hair. I'm saving for the handy size too! I will never be without a Mason Pearson for quality & health.

                I was so not prepared for this experience with a [$] brush! The bristles are like cheap, sharp plastic - it hurts to use this. I have short-to-medium length hair of fine-to-medium texture. This is the wrong brush for me. If you're going for a Mason-Pearson, try the nylon-bristle combo. Your scalp will thank you. Personally, I'm going to return to my $25 Bass bristle and nylon brush - a far superior product for a fraction of the cost.

                  I have been following the old rule about brushing your hair 100 strokes a day and I have been using this brush for over two weeks. My hair has never responded to any product the way it does to using this brush. It is shiny and more manageable and it appears to me that it is growing faster than it ever has.

                    I've used this brush daily for around ten years. It still works as if it were brand new. If I ever need to replace it I'll buy the same brush. Highly recommend!

                      I've noticed shinier hair and a healthier scalp since I started using this brush twice a day. The size is ideal for my fairly short hair.

                      I really like this brush. I feel like I get a good scalp massage every time I use it. It's gentle on the hair too, no pulling.
