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 splurged and bought one of these for my 13 year old daughter, who has super-thick gorgeous long hair. I thought she lost it (like everything else she owns) and kicked myself for buying her such an expensive brush. But the darn thing is so awesome, I bought her a replacement. The first brush turned up, so I've carefully stashed the replacement in the bathroom cupboard, just in case I ever wake up with a head of perfect long blonde hair. What the heck, a mom can dream.

                  I hate I bought into the hype that this brush was better than a professional $18 - 25 Nylon brushes. SO mad at myself for wasting so much money. Lesson learned the hard way.

                    My hair is so thick, curly and frizzy that I have only been able to comb it. This brush is the best. I brush after my shower before I put on product and it keeps my hair looking strong and healthy. Must buy!

                      I have been using Mason Pearson hairbrushes since I was a little girl. They are truly the best you can buy. They last forever. This brush is great for detangling hair. You can use it on wet or dry hair. I have fine hair and a sensitive scalp so it is perfect for me.

                          I use this nylon brush for when my hair is wet, and then I use the "popular" boar and nylon brush for when my hair is dry. My hair is very straight and very long- so I get a ton of knots! After showering, this brush literally glides down my hair (and also gives a little bit of a nice massage on the scalp!). I love this brush and it was worth every dime!

                          I just received my Mason Pearson brush, and I have to say I LOVE the way it glides through my very thick, coarse, Asian hair. I cannot give it 5 stars because it is so incredibly expensive- I hate the fact that I am paranoid about dropping the brush and breaking it!
