The Mason Pearson Pocket Nylon Brush is a pocket size version – perfect to take travelling or for your bag. This brush is 100% nylon and has been developed specifically for those with very thick, strong hair. This brush controls thick and long hair and allows wet hair to be detangled with the minimum amount of effort. The nylon is very gentle to the hair and it will not irritate the hair or scalp. A Mason Pearson hairbrush is designed to provide many years of quality usage. Regular brushing plays an important part in the condition of your hair. The Mason Pearson Hairbrush cleans the hair, stimulates the scalp increasing the blood flow to the hair roots. A natural conditioning oil - sebum - comes from the hair giving it strength, suppleness and producing a healthy sheen. To maintain the quality of the Mason Pearson Hairbrush it is not mass produced. Most of the work is carried out by hand, using techniques pioneered and patented by the founder - Mason Pearson - over one hundred years ago and improved over succeeding generations.
