This is the Rolls Royce of brushes! the lost holy grail when it comes to your grooming routine!! . I was so happy that i found a salon that sells it in canada and went to the store to talk to the shop keeper, She told me which brush would work better on my hair ( Boar and nylon combo for thicker hair) Ive been using this brush religiously for almost 3 solid months now! the results are clearly visible! My hair is so much stronger ( its been almost 5 months since my last hair cut and ive barely got any split ends or breakage). My hair got so luscious and healthy looking! I have so many compliments about my hair looking so healthy as of late! The brush does such a good job at distributing oils from root-to-end that i truly believe it does such a wonderful job of creating such healthy hair
at $200 price tag, its not cheap by far, BUT think about how much we spend on all this junk for our hair that destroys it----hairspray, mouse, straightener, dryers, gel etc.....you need to counteract all these harmful products with one item that will heal your hair!!

A wonderful treat if you have the disposable income to spare otherwise try something comparable. It does make the roota go flat. A little bristly on my scalp, but it really does remove the flakies and other debris.

I bought this brush 8 years ago and it's still in near perfect condition. The handle isn't as shiny as it used to be and the gold on the letters has worn off but other than that it looks like i just bought it. The bristles are still fine and if any have fellen out I can't tell. The rubber has also never come loose. I don't use it with my hair dryer and i clean it so that's probably why. The price is worth it if you consider how many brushes you'd buy in 8 years if you didn't have this one. Also, if you lose the cleaning brush like I did buy a new one on Neimanmarcus.com. For some reason they have replacements for the lowest price ($10). Everywhere else I looked including amazon was selling them for at least 14 and NM even had a promo code for free shipping so I probably set a new record by only spending $10.80 at NM in one go.

I've just bought this brush - so can't comment on long term effects yet.
However, my initial impression is positive.
I got it in a gorgeous white colour, and it comes with its own cleaning brush.
I've just had my hair chopped into a short bob, to get rid of damage and 'start again'.
Part of this plan is to use this brush from the get-go, in the hopes of doing everything I can do to get healthy hair as I grow it out.
One word of warning - the bristles are quite bristle-y on the scalp, and I could really feel it tingle after I first used it.
But I guess this is part of the whole thing - to stimulate the scalp and get rid of flakes while distributing the natural oils.
The other thing I notice is that it causes your hair to go quite flat at the roots.
I have lots of hair, which is naturally frizzy, so this isn't too much of a problem as I'm always looking for things to tame my hair and make it lie flatter.
But it DOES feel a bit strange to have the hair lie so closely to my scalp.
I'll edit this review after I've used the brush for a few months.

Excellent brush It does not pull or break the hair.
If you are a brusher this brush is a must. If you like combs ( I use a wide tooth one) like me.. this brush will not be necessary.
my hair does not transform after using this..
Its a very good brush but I do prefer a comb over any brush..
My hair type: long and highlighted (no bleach) Good condition, no frizz. Tends to get flat at the roots.. tends to get weighed down and oily with most products.

This hairbrush is amazing. I finally decided to just splurge and buy it because I'm growing out my hair and I'm trying to be really careful about minimizing damage and split ends. At first I thought the price was crazy for just a brush, but it really makes a huge difference and should (hopefully!) last forever. The price seems to vary a lot online; I got mine from ebeauty.ca for about $160, and shipping was free (but only in Canada: http://bit.ly/oPnxm9)
PS: I said "yes" to buying this product again, but I'm hoping I won't have to!

(Skip to * if you want to) I saw this brush a while ago in store for $150, and it's clearly out of my budge, so I headed for the cheaper alternatives. First I tried a boar hair brush from Japan that was bought by my ex's mom, she claimed that will help the growth of hair, while it did smooths my hair easily, it causes my hair to fall. Then, after the break-up, I wanted a similar brush so I got the one by BASS, and horribly, it stripped out all the oils from my hair and left it very dry. Since then, I lost al my confidence about boar brush, until recently, *I got to use my fren's pearson brush for a 2-weeks vacation coz I forgot mine at home! I was having a lot of breakages coz I have long thin (hidden) wavy hair as regular brushing causes hair to cut against each other's brittle ends. But after a few use of this brush, my hair reduces the number of breakages by A LOT. Well, I also changed my shampoo to my fren's one (garnier one for normal hair.) But I think it's the way of brushing that helps, also with the design of the brush, it's very easy to dry my hair straight. It's summer in NY (the place has AC), a few strokes in front of the fan will look like I had a "blow job" to my hair. :D Anyways, I am definitely looking for cheaper one on ebay when i get home.

If you can get one, this product is nice to use, but not exactly a must-have. I have extremely tangly, long hair that tends to look like I haven't brushed it, even though I have. This brush helps achieve a more polished look. I have waves, and an interesting feature of this brush is that it straightens them out. So if you want straighter hair without heat styling, I would recommend this.
This brush also does a great job of detangling without snagging: it really glides through, and I don't feel like I'm ripping my hair to shreds, like with most brushes. The effects of a smoother detangling process will hopefully have long term benefits.
So I'll reiterate: this isn't a magic solution, but for some hair types, if you have the cash or are willing to splurge like I did, it's pretty nice.

I think this brush is worth the price but only in certain situations, here is why:
I have mid back length thin fine hair that has to be washed every day, I am trying to grow it to waist length, this means that the ends of my hair are at least 5 years old and can get dry and brittle. The Mason Pearson brush is supposed to clean the hair as well as distribute scalp oils along the shaft. If your hair is short and you cut it frequently (I trim mine every 3 months) this brush may not be necessary, but if you are trying to grow it I highly recommend you invest in a good brush. Just remember to brush from the scalp down the length of your hair.
If you care for this brush properly it will last for many years, plus it has a warranty.
I saved for this brush for months and I am happy with my investment.
I hope this helps!

I love this hairbrush! It's totally overpriced but worth it! My hair is super long, flat and thin. After using the brush, I can tell my hair is shinier and smoother, especially at the ends. I've been looking for something to make my hair smooth and shiny but I had using hair products! This brush really massages your scalp when you use it. The nylon and boar bristle seems to be a good mix.

OK - i must admit, when i first heard about this hairbrush, i was pretty skeptical. i thought about getting it over many years but i never did. one day there was a sale on a website and i saw this at about 30% off so i took the plunge; and boy, i will never look at this hairbrush the same way again.
yes, it is crazy to spend that kind of money on a hairbrush. but this is really more than that! it not only feels soooo good on your scalp (like a massage), it brushes your hair in such a way that it becomes completely soft and detangled. i dont even really need conditioner anymore. after a good brush, my un-conditioned hair feels completely smooth, as if it had been through a deep condition!
also comes with a little brush for the hairbrush, how cute!
highly recommended. do it!

I received this brush as a present and I LOVE it!I have had it for many years now and it is the best brush. The quality is top notch!

I've had my brush for over 17 years and I think that speaks
for itself. It's sturdy and washes well, too. A good weekly scrub keeps them looking and feeling spotless. The Pink, Blue and Yellow Children's Brushes are terrific as well.
Don't bother with the unecessary and expensive Mason Pearson brush cleaner: Sally Beauty Supply sells an excellent gadget for cleaning brushes.
Other brushes have come and gone but my Mason Pearson & Kent hair brushes are still going strong. To buy them now is costly but it's an investment that pays for itself over the years. There's a REASON some things are classics...

This is exactly how a good brush is supposed to be. It is large, not very hard, not super soft, does not pull your hair, goes on very smooth. I highly recommend it. I am sure there are tons of okay brushes out there. But this one is a really good one. It is fairly expensive for a brush, I know. But if you can afford it don't hesitate to buy it. It does not cost much more than good quality perfumes and creams. At least this one will be serving you many years to come.

I never thought I could fall in LOVE with a hairbrush! It has ended the crying and screaming of my daughter as I brush through her thick, slightly wavy hair. This brush glides right through all of the snarls and tangles. I heard about this brush years ago and thought, "Who would pay $150 for a hairbrush?" Now I wish I had bought it the second I read about it! I got it through a UK seller and saved on the cost.

I love this brush so much and have since I was a child. I've always had long hair that tangles easily. This brushes right through the knots and doesn't pull or hurt your hair. I love the size of the brush-makes brushing quick and easy. The cleaning brush is nice to get out the hair from the bristles. The only thing that makes me uneasy about using it is when I put product in and my hair is still wet. It says not to use with products so I had to buy a cheap brush for when I brush through my mouse or use biosilk. Other than that this brush is so worth the money.

I have previously purchased the Sonia Kashuk knockoff before buying this. however i found the boar bristles didnt do through my thick, black, striaght asian hair. it also made my hair staticy and had linty gunk collecting on the ends which ive spent hours upon hours trying to get out.
So when i requested this overpriced brush for my birthday, of course my mother freaked. Since I purchased from tressence, and they have a sale on the large for 122 instead of 150 +free shipping on an item as expensive as this I figured I might as well
At first I was disappointed because this brush left my hair even more staticy than the sk brush. I did however notice that the boar bristles were firm enough to comb through my hair. Not only that, but i can really feel my scalp tingling right now! It glided through my hair beautifully and detangled very well. The fact that my large brush comes with a cleaning brush is also a relief because id like to preserve a brush as overpriced as this from getting gunky
I will update if I notice any other changes in my hair since this is my first day of using it.
Also I should mention that I have bra length hair that is pretty dry and frizzy on the middle and end area and oily on the roots which practically screams for more brushing.
Also I will do more research on why hair might get staticy after brushing. if it turns out its not a brushes fault for this result I will bump this up to five stars despite the fact that I still feel it is overpriced.

I LOVE this brush, HG material! It is otrageously expensive, but it lasts for a life time. I have had mine for over five years and use it daily: it is still perfect. It leaves my hair soft and shiny and does not tear and/or break my hair. I wash it using the instructions provided by the manufacturer. I used other brushes in the past and this is unbeatable if you have long hair. Highly recommended.
Mason Pearsons manufactures several models of their brushes. You may want to check on their web site which one is more suitable for your hair. I have thick and slightly wavy hair and the Popular bristle + nylon works perfectly.

A classic for all the right reasons. My Mason Pearson fascination was a bit of an impulse buy after a hair stylist used it to brush my hair out and it felt like heaven on my scalp. Beauty.com was on its last day of a 20% off F&F code, and it seemed like fate. I was torn between this one and the pure bristle brush -- my wavy hair is shoulder-length and right in between thick and thin -- but I think I made the right call.
Between this and weekly treatments with Weleda Rosemary Hair Oil, my hair has never looked so healthy or felt so soft. I hope to still be using this 25 years down the road like the rest of you all!

Before I came to the world, almost 25 years ago, my father splurged on this brush. My mother thought he was insane, paying what he did for it, but it has kept all these years of daily usage by the whole family despite not being taken care of as it should have been (cleaned with ordinary combs, washed with washing up liquid and I don't know what!). So, a really sturdy brush well worth the price just for how it has kept up throughout all of these years. Though, where it really shines, is performance wise.
Lately, since my old Mason Pearson has finally come unglued and started to loose the nylon bristles, I ordered a new one. For a student, this is more than just splurging, but I know it is worth it. The reason?
Because this brush really takes care of my hair, rather than just untangling it. If you haven't used one of these brushes, it is hard to explain but unlike other brushes, this just detangles, cleans and keeps my waist long, thick hair silky soft just as really good conditioners do. And the most amazing thing? You will not feel it tug to detangle, it just glides through, if you begin at the tips and work your way up. My routine, after showering, is usually: detangle comb, air dry and this brush. Smooth, perfect hair without a lot of products in it.
So, pricey, yes, but definitely worth it on all levels in the long run.
