The Mason Pearson Hairbrush cleans the hair and stimulates the scalp, increasing blood flow to the roots. Pure Bristle brushes are ideal for fine to normal hair and fine long hair. Boar bristle is used because it has a natural affinity to human hair. That is to say, the structure of Boar bristle is similar to human hair. The affinity makes the boar bristle cling to the hair shaft, to accomplish the purposes of hair brushing.
Mason Pearson hairbrushes are 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 and thirty years ago and improved over succeeding generations. 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 gently massages the scalp. The plastic handle shape was developed from the original wooden models, which are still made in small quantities. The plastic handles are hand-finished to remove any sharp edges to feel comfortable in the hand.
