This is a review for a large Mason Pearson brush made of eight rings 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.Read more ›
For starters, the quality of both the brushes was absolutely the same. The same packaging, the same good quality hard plastic,the same rubber pad etc.
I've outlined a general guide below-(this was for my large pure boar bristle hairbrush, model B1)-
1) The name on the handle should be in goldblocking and sunken into the plastic.
2) The name on the handle should say:
Pure Bristle (varies with brush type)
3) There should be a hole at the end of the brush only, the side opposite to the handle.
4) There should be 16 rows (or 8 rings) of tufts (varies with brush size)
5) When you squeeze down on the brush you should hear it whistle or wheeze as the air flows out of the cushion and the cushion should bounce back at the same speed.
6) This is for the ruby brushes only- at first glance the plastic on the handle seems almost black, but when you hold it up against light, it glows a wonderful deep ruby red.Read more ›
Instead, R & S Factors says I have to return the brush to London at my expense and then, "we shall make a full refund back to you after deducting a 50% restocking charge." A full refund?!? Huh?
So far as I'm concerned, I won't even look at another Mason Pearson product again and R & S Factors sucks.
I can recommend it, even at this price, as you will not have to buy another brush for many decades. If you take care of it, it might even last you forever. Be sure to get the brush recommended for your hair type. Don't try to save money and get the pocket model if you have long/thick hair. The bristles, which are shorter on the pocket version, won't reach your scalp. It makes a wonderful gift!
