Just purchased, arrived quickly.
By Branner from San Francisco. from on 12/30/2014
This was the only sight that I felt confident I wouldn't get counterfeit brushes. We don't have money to throw around, but I appreciate and value great quality. So when it comes to certain things I'll wait and save to purchase an item that will last. I bought this brush for my wife and another child's Mason Pearson brush for my daughter. These seem to be living up to their reputation so far. My daughter is 2 , so having a good brush helps me do her hair quick in the morning. She doesn't seem to mind this brush as it's not hard on her scalp, but still grabs her nicely, so I can get it in a rubber band with only a few strokes. I've only had them for 2 weeks. I'm wondering if they should be kept in a case for travel. One bristle is already bent out of shape, because it was in places in a suitcase.

Fantastic Mason Pearson Brush
By Marti from San Luis Obispo, Ca from on 6/17/2012
I know it seems expensive, but it is worth the money. Your hair feels better and you know it is good for your hair. No more pulling hairs out, my husband and myself both have the brush and love it.

Choose Carefully
By September from Texas from on 3/27/2011
I chose this brush because my hair has begun to thin over the last few years and it was described as being for thinning hair. What I discovered once I received it was that my hair hadn't thinned enough (it was thick back in the day) to warrant using this brush. The bristles just didn't penetrate to my scalp well. I was unable to return the brush because I had used it but WhatSheBuys did work with me to give me a discount on a different brush. So my advice is to read the Mason Pearson Buying Guide and Comparison Chart carefully BEFORE you purchase. Otherwise, I think this would a great brush for someone who does have fine or thinning hair. On the bright side, I have this brush waiting in the wings if and when my hair does get thin.

Review for Mason Pearson Sensitive Bristle Hair Brush.
By Laurie from on 1/10/2011
I am so happy with this brush. I have very long hair and have searched for a brush like this my entire life. I had always heard good things about Mason Pearson hair brushes but didn't believe it until I purchased one myself. It is absolutely worth every penny! My scalp feels so invigorated and my hair looks fuller, even my husband noticed and he never notices anything! This is the Cadillac of brushes! :)
