About the Product
  • Product Dimensions : 8 7/8" long, 2 3/4" wide
  • Mason Pearson has established a unique reputation for hairbrushes. The reason for this is partly in the design and partly in the versatility of the brushes. The design consists of unique spired tufts of boar bristle, or nylon, or bristle-and-nylon mixture, set in a pneumatic pad so that every tuft penetrates right through to the scalp. In addition the materials are first-class.
  • Bristle and Nylon tufts: This mixture is a good combination for thick or long hair. It is the ideal brush for anyone just becoming accustomed to brushing his or her hair.
  • Brushing the hair cleans and polishes it and stimulates the scalp all at once. And brushing is a wonderful conditioning treatment as it not only distributes oil along the entire hair shaft but gets rid of any scaly particles as well. This is the way to brush: ideally, bend from the waist. Brush from the scalp to the ends of the hair in long, slow, firm strokes, touching the scalp each time with the bristles of the brush.
  • You'll find that a Mason Pearson glides more easily and smoothly through the hair, allowing you to lift your hair in wide curves. A Mason Pearson brush is designed so that every individual tuft penetrates right through to the scalp. Too hard a bristle would hack at your hair and scalp, too soft a bristle would slide ineffectively over your head.
  • Brushing is for all hair types. Dry hair: Brushing activates the tiny oil glands at the case of each hair - so that they lubricate each hair shaft just enough for elasticity and bounce and there's no danger of hair being brittle, dry and difficult to manage. Greasy hair: Brushing helps lift away excess oil from the hair shaft. Dandruff: A Mason Pearson brush reaches every corner of the scalp and makes a thorough job of sweeping away the scales.

A lot of products are pricey just for the name attached. This is not one of those products. I had read so many reviews on these brushes in top magazines as well as how stylists rave over them, it made me more than curious. I have long hair and it can be hard to get out all the tangles when it's wet with regular brushes. Even wide tooth combs are difficult and uncomfortable! So I splurged. That was 8 years ago. My brush is still like new and I would NEVER use another brush in it's place. It's the only brush I have ever tried that goes through my hair like butter, weather it's tangled or not. When I go to the salon to get highlighted, the towel dry that comes after the rinse makes my hair REALLY notty and tangled. The colorist sends an assistant to help get them out bit by bit and it hurts! One day I thought, why do I put myself through that time & discomfort.. I'll just bring my brush. Well I did.. and I let the assistant who usually takes about 15 minutes to detangle my hair regularly use it and she was done in like a minute. No joke. She even asked what kind of brush I had brought that had made it so easy to brush through. In any case.. think of how many brushes you may go through in 10-15 years Cause this is one of those times where you will make out in the long run because you'll have this for a long, long time and absolutely love it. Some advice if you buy one though... if you put product in your hair.. use an additional brush to comb it through. You don't want build up beaking down the materials in this brush at that price. When you clean it, don't dip the actual brush in water either... you need to dry clean it with the little black brush it came with and then occasionally dip that cleaning brush in warm soapy water (non -detergant) and then brush the bristles with the cleaning brush.Read more ›

This is a review for a Junior (medium-size) Mason Pearson brush made of seven rings of mixed boar bristle and nylon. The longer bristles are nylon and the shorter ones are boar bristle. It is a beautiful heirloom brush worth every penny of the incredibly high price.

All of the larger Mason Pearson brushes, including this one, come with a cleaning brush, so that you can easily clean loose hairs out of your brush.

There are two things you need to know when you're ready to buy a Mason Pearson brush of any sort. One is the size: full-size (the largest size), handy (medium sized), or pocket (the smallest size). This is important not so much because of where the brush will be kept (say, in your handbag), but because of the bristle length of the various sizes. The smaller sizes have shorter bristles. The bristles have to be able to reach your scalp, and massage it and distribute the oils throughout your hair. If you want a small brush but you have thick or long hair, you'd do better with a larger size.

The other consideration is the bristle type. Do you want a mixed bristle brush like this one that is part boar bristle and part nylon? What is most comfortable and performs the best with your hair. This mixed bristle brush will work well for you if your hair is fine to normal and not too long or too thick. Otherwise, you'll need to go with the Detangler because the bristles are stiffer and can reach down through all of your hair to the scalp; the Detangler is the only Mason Pearson brush that can reach the scalp of extremely thick hair. Mason Pearson also makes an All Boar Bristle Brush for finer or shorter hair but I have never tried it.

So, this mixed bristle brush is for normal, finer, and shorter hair.

I have sent this letter to the Mason Pearson company and awaiting a reply, here is the letter:

"I've have owned a junior boar and nylon Mason Pearson brush for many years. I started back in 1992 I believe. I need a question answered please. I had two prior brushes lost, stolen back in the day. Loved them! I just bought a new one from an outside retailer. (amazon) I can bet my life that this brush is different from the past two I owned, I know I always bought the same brush as in size and style. This brush seems to have less boar bristles then my brushes I bought in the 90's. Please confirm if and when the design changed. Why does there seem to be less boar bristles present on the mixed brushes you are selling? Thank you so much for your reply and to end the confusion in my head."

This brush does not have the same feel as the two old ones. (maybe good for super thick hair) It is much harder, too hard.
The extra boar hairs really did glide through my hair with greater ease and kept it shinier. The brush is not like before and not worth the price.

**My new favorite is brush is the ibiza in the G series.**

***Update: Here is the reply to my letter, from the Mason Pearson company direct in England, they are using less boar bristle!!! :(

Thank you for your enquiry. Because of the changing nature of the raw materials we use (possibly an evolving nature) & often due to the country of origin, we have to be prepared to use the best bristle available at the time to do the work required of it. Which sometimes means less bristles per tuft but usable, or more bristles per tuft but not so effective when brushing as a Mason Pearson hairbrush should be.
