Mason Pearson Handy Pure Bristle Brush

87% of beautyheaven reviewers rated this product at four or five stars. While the price may seem steep, the reviews ring with praise: “I started using my Masons Pearson hair brush 12 years ago because I was spending a lot of money on hair care products & regular trips to the salon, it is well worth the money with how gentle my hairbrush is on my hair. I love how Mason Pearson brushes don’t break or spittle my hair and make brushing easier when I have tangled bed hair. I loved my Mason Pearson hairbrush that much that I decided to buy the same hair in handy purse size with pure boar hair,” wrote beautyheaven member Littlepuggles45.

Both Aja and Sophie from beautyheaven consider this brush their holy-grail hair tool. “As a gal with hair that tangles easy, the WetBrush original is the ideal tool to help me tame my knotty locks. It brushes through my hair so easily, without any pulling or grabbing, yet still manages to rid me of any knots and tangles. It’s safe to say I can’t live without it!” exclaims beautyheaven‘s Aja. And beautyheaven‘s Sophie couldn’t agree more: “I LOVE my Wet Brush! I use it daily on my hair and it’s the only brush that I can properly detangle with, without it pulling at my tape extensions. You can use it on hair that’s wet or dry and it never pulls or causes breakage. I also love how my curls look when I brush them out with this brush. Highly recommend.”
