By now you may have heard of the legendary Mason Pearson hairbrush and wondered, "Who in the WORLD would pay that much for a brush??" Well let me tell you.. it's worth EVERY penny. This is one of the very few items that actually live up to its hype.
If you only have one hair brush this should be it. Seriously. My dad (men love it too!) had one growing up and I'd always sneak in his bathroom and steal it. Needless to say, the day I moved out it "accidentally" ended up in one of my boxes and I've used it everyday since (I finally bought him a replacement last year for Christmas). If the fact that I've had my Mason Pearson brush for 15+ years doesn't tell you something, I don't know what will.
One of the things I love about it most is that it lets me go longer in between washing my hair. It redistributes the oil from your scalp through the shaft of your hair, making your roots less greasy and your ends more moisturized. If you like to blow dry your hair straight, I swear this will cut your work in half!
I know it's crazy expensive, but you'll have it for a lifetime. Ever since Ricki was little she called it the "no-ouch brush" since it's the only one that detangles without her running out of the room in tears. (*Sidenote- is there a kids game I don't know about that involves seeing who can get the most tangles in their hair? My kid has to win, for sure.) With all that said, if you're not ready to make the commitment, try the smaller pocket brush and see how you like it. I guarantee you'll be going back for the full size!
