I so wanted to love this brush since it was touted as being a Dupe for the Mason Pearson brush! Because of the Bore bristles, my hair was full of static. Still looking for the brush I bought 25 years ago that came in a Susan Lucci set I bought on one of the home shopping channels. It has lasted 25 years and I cannot find another one like it. It had a mixture of nylon and I think bore bristles that left no static.

I love this brush! I have 2 MP brushes and this Sonia Kashuk is just as good! Leaves hair shiny and the handle is so ergonomic! My only complaint is the packaging as it's not recyclable.

I had been experiencing a lot of hair thinning without really knowing why. It was hard to diagnose because the last couple of years have been a jumble of pregnancy (ahhh the glory of a pregnant head of hair), followed by the unavoidable postpartum hair loss, different meds, different diets, switching to sulfate/silicone free, etc etc etc. While my hair was by no means noticeably crazily thinned out, I could definitely tell something was up. I cut my lower-back length hair to chin-length because I just couldn't deal with the stringiness.

Anyhow, that's the backstory. I was perusing the MUA recent reviews, as one does when one is bored, and stumbled upon one for this brush. I was unaware that it was supposed to be a dupe for the Mason Pearson -- long story short, it led me to the MP brush reviews, and I became totally *obsessed* with getting one but just couldn't deal with the price tag, so I settled for the Sonia Kashuk version. It was a little less than $15 at Target.

So like...my hair thickness has increased by at LEAST 50% in about 1-2 months. The only thing different in my routine is this brush. I literally went from losing a large mass of hair in the shower every day, and while brushing/styling too, to maybe losing 10 strands of hair per day? I'm not even kidding. OH -- and, I am a very oily person. Granted it's winter, but I have NEVER been able to skip daily shampoos. And now my hair looks totally normal and fluffy and amazing on the second way? WTF is this magic?

My hair is now past shoulder length. I don't do much actual styling (I am lazy) but this brush serves all my purposes. It feels amazing gliding through my hair, especially the scalp, and makes my weekly coconut oil treatments really efficient too, as I feel like the oil is getting everywhere it needs to go.

I will probably eventually upgrade to the MP (aka ask for it for the holidays...) but this little thang has legit changed my life, well, when talking about my hair, haha. It has been the best thing I have done for my appearance in a longggg time.

I agree with other reviewers about the quality of this brush. I do not own a MP because of the price tag, but I've inspected them several times up close. I do not see what the fuss is about or how it is much different than my beloved Sonia Kashuk. The SK is awesome in every way and easy to keep clean. I do wish the handle was longer but overall, a great brush. Really feels great on the scalp and doesn't break my hair or give me detangling grief. More importantly, my kids love this brush. I have repurchased only to have extras. I've had my original SK for almost ten years and it still works, looks, and cleans up great.

I purchased this as a Mason Pearson dupe, and since I've never tried the real thing, I don't have much to compare it to. Feels a little rough and scratchy on my scalp.

My favorite brush! The bristles massage the scalp which is good for hair health, and it easily detangles and smooths the hair. I flip my head upside down and use it before a shower to loosen up my scalp, and then daily for regular brushing/styling. It feels nice to hold and looks pretty on my counter. I love it.

This brush I great. I use it for everything, blow drying, back combing, and smoothing out curls when styling for weddings. I just wish the handle was longer.

I bought this two weeks after I got my mason pearson just for comparison. This looks exactly like my MP handy brush except for the handle. Head size, length and look of bristles are the same. One big difference though compared to MP is, MP pneumatic cushion works. This one the cushion is hard. Even if you push the bristles hard to move the cushion inward, the cushion hardly budges. Spornette cushion moves a little. Denman's cushion is as hard as this brush. Also this has a strong burnt rubber smell that my MP and Denman doesn't have. Spornette Luxury has a mild burnt rubber smell. This is also a lot scratcher than MP. MP is the most gentle to the scalp, then Denman ( but does not quite reach my scalp ), then Spornette Luxury and this brush comes last. All of the brushes here I mentioned are mixed bristles. IMO if you are in a budget or just don't want to pay the high price tag of MP, for thin or medium thickness hair Denman is your best bet. For thick hair, I would go with Spornette Luxury. If you have money to spare I would still get the MP. It has all the reasons why it cost that much. If this brush doesn't have that strong smell and doesn't feel too scratchy on my scalp ( I may have more sensitive scalp than other people ) this would have been a good alternative to MP.

Not a fan. I bought the small travel size brush to throw in my purse whenever I needed to fix my hair. This makes my hair frizzy and wiry whenever I run it through. The plastic is cheap as far as the bristles go. It's supposed to be half boar bristles half plastic but it just doesn't cut it for me. It doesn't smooth my hair , it just makes it worse. Especially whe I straighten my hair. I like how the brush looks but so far its just a waste of money for me.

I love this brush. After receiving the full-size one I immediately thought I should get the travel one. They're almost equal in size, I was surprised at how small the full-size one is. I've never tried the MP brush to compare it to, but this makes doing my hair so much faster and easier. It's quickly become my favorite brush.
