i have always wanted a mason and pearson brush but before i add one to my xmas wish list id love to canvass opinion on if they are worth it?

and does anyone know the cheapest place to get one?

any recommendations? my hair is quite fine and flyaway, loads of it, its long and highlighted which gives it a bit of oomph....

I bought a small one on Amazon and is fine for my massive locks (basically like one of the witches of eastwick)

It's my third and I love them. Love love love.

Thank you - that price is MUCH nicer too!

I've got the Denman in the link. I've just been sat here trying to wrk out how long I have owned it and I think it must be 24 years!
I wash and disnfect it occasionally and I use it most days and it is lovely.

I've got a Mason and Pearson natural bristle brush and my two DDs (aged 6 and 2) have as well. They cope very well with our long, thick, curly hair. Ours were quite reasonable from a local independent pharmacy (cheaper than Amazon).

DH has a Denman with plastic bristles but it is useless on my hair. To be honest, I think it depends on your hair type and the brush type.

Should have said that I've had my mason and Pearson for 12 years! Still going strong...

ooOoo I'd like a Mason and Pearson brush, if only for the retro cool and the classic packaging. Ahem.

Is Denman better then? My hair is fine and fragile.

'ello ggirl, Pinot here. Merry Christmas, lovely x

do i spent wisely on a denman or splash out on a mason and pearson.....

I have a denman and I have fine hair, fragile hair and I think it does the job << doesn't see much differences in brushes on the whole>>

thank you! you may have saved me from a very expensive mistake! i will try the denman brush as my hair is fine, straight and long.

Try TK Maxx for cheaper naice brushes.

I've always wanted one for a pressie. Would never spend that much on myself, and don't know anyone who'd appreciate one as a gift.

Though I only brush when my hair has conditioner in.
