I've been given an Amazon gift voucher and was thinking of buying a Mason Pearson brush for myself but am wondering if they're really worth the money?
I have really long fine hair which is such a pain to untangle every day so I was looking at the nylon detangler. Does anyone have any feedback?

Thanks original.gif

I bought one in the UK last year and I love it. I too have long fine hair and the first time I used it, it actually made my hair shinier! I love it, but my my has had her for years and years so I knew they were a good buy.

Thanks for the replies! I think I'm definitely sold on one now, I'm just not sure which one to get?

I've had mine for 15 years and still going strong (despite my brother and I giving it a rough time when we were younger lol) I have the nylon and boar bristle one and love it

I was just in a panic because I thought I'd misplaced mine! Found it again. I have the nylon/boar bristle one, they're the only hairbrushes that actually make it through my hair and cut down on the knots.

Now that I have seen this thread, I have started googling them and I want one (for my daughter, who has curly (easy to get knotty) hair.

I am thinking of getting the Pocket Bristle and Nylon (they are a good price on Peter of Kensington).

Edit: We currently use an afro comb on her hair, so hopefully this will be nice on her hair.

I love mine. It has taken a beating but still going string after all these years. I will be getting one for my daughter when she is about 4 as they last a lifetime and are so good!

They are the best!

I have been using them since I was 19 (now 44) and I have very long and healthy hair.

I have found a brush will normally last about 10 years or more, however I use mine for blowdrying too and they take a bit a beating with all the heat and probably the last one has only lasted about 5 years.

I like the hog bristle and nylon combo brush - I use the Popular style and DD has the Junior style.

Worth every cent.

Another fan of MP brushes; been using them since I was a child (my gran gave me my first one) and I'm 40 now. I think I've only had 3 in that time, they last really well if you look after them. They make a lovely gift too.

Thanks everyone, good to hear they are worth the money.
I'm going to order tonight so will update with what I decide!

Another fan of MP here! I've also been using them since I was little, and my mum has been using hers forever. I have thick, wavy hair and the nylon/boar bristle brush I have is fantastic with it.

Definitely worth the investment in my opinion, and I agree with a PP, they make a lovely keepsake gift.

I've been using mine now for 36 years - still going strong! Definitely worth it when you work out 'cost per wear' rationale!

I just bought DD the pink child's one for Christmas and it is awesome on her fine hair.  I got it online from a UK pharmacy for $60 shipped.

My mum has had her MP brush for more than 20 years and loves it. It doesn't really suit my hair but she adores it for her hair (fine and wavy).

I decided to go with the all nylon detangler, thanks everyone for your help original.gif

Mum bought me one ten years ago and I wouldn't replace it for any other brush on the market!
I love it and think its worth every cent.

Not much help on which type you should get though as I have thick straight hair. Though mine is also brilliant on DDs fine thick hair as well.

I'm pretty sure mine is bristle and nylon, 'popular' size. I've got lots of fine hair, and it's great.

I've had mine since I was 10 so 28 years and still going on strong.

I would never use anything else.

I had a second hand one for about 15 years (my older sister's). In the end the back of it broke. I was devastated.
