Since 1885 Mason Pearson have been manufacturing exquisite brushes by hand. The original design has never been bettered. Their unique rubber-cushion pad and natural bristles are kind to hair and scalp.
Regular brushing plays an important part in the condition of your hair. The Mason Pearson brush cleans the hair, stimulates the scalp increasing the bloody flow to the roots. A natural conditioning oil – sebum- comes from a gland at the base of every hair and brushing spreads it along the length of the hair giving it strength and suppleness that produces a healthy sheen.
Mason Pearson build their products to last as long as possible. While they cannot make indestructible products, they use the best materials available so that, with a little care, they should give good service. Mason Pearson try to make improvements continuously. They have developed their own special nylon and take particular care in their selection of natural bristles to use the best combination for each brush.
The cellulose plastic handle is hand-polished and any sharp edges are removed to make the hairbrush more comfortable to hold. This handle was developed from the original wooden design which Mason Pearson continue to make in small quantities.
The unique rubber-cushion pad, made by hand using Mason Pearson’s original techniques, allows for effective and efficient brushing. It is kind to use and massages the scalp.
