Handy bristle all bristle -ruby handle, for medium length fine 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 "pure boar bristle" is specifically for brushing through fine to normal 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.

      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.
