What is the big to-do over Mason-Pearson hairbrushes?

michelle_phxazDecember 21, 2010

I read in a magazine tips from hair stylists that a great investment into your haircare was a Mason Pearson hairbrush. It didn't say the natural or nylon bristles were better than the other, so, being on a budget, I purchased the nylon one for $50, the natural bristle one was up to $100. It is supposed to pull the oils from your scalp to distribute the natural conditioner (oil) evenly, but all my hair did was get really static-y. I have very long, very straight, healthy thick hair so I thought this would be a no-brainer to help keep my hair healthy.

I went back to my old $3 brush and love it much better. Why do people rave about this brush, is it because the natural bristles are better which I will never know about?

Possibly it's because the hairdressers put more wear and tear on their brushes so the high quality makes them last longer, for you and me it may not make a difference. Sorry it didn't work out, that's annoying !

Ahhh, good point. I can tell it is good quality, but I just prefer the $3 model!
