Designed by engineer and inventor Mason Pearson in the late 1800s, his namesake brush has been a staple since before the advent of sliced bread, literally. Today, it’s one of the most regularly recommended hairbrushes amongst professionals. Its premium-grade boar bristle (removed from the animal in a cruelty-free manner), is gentle on your hair and scalp, minimizing breakage. And we all know that in winter our locks need all the help they can get. If you’re looking to invest in a better brush, might we recommend checking out the offerings on eBay. We suspect you might find a good deal to complement your future of better hair.
