Last year I kept reading in magazines about Mason and Pearson hairbrushes and how they were the "Rolls Royse" of the hairbrush world. Somehow I got it into my head that I MUST have one and bought one over Christmas last year. I have the nylon/bristle mix travel brush and paid a whopping $90 for it (even now I wonder how I rationalized that! :blink: ) but it truly is the best hairbrush I've ever owned. My hair is extremely thick and sort of coarse not to mention long, and this brush really smooths and detangles my hair well. Anyone else invested in one of these brushes? Happy/sad about the results? Any other hairbrush suggestions?
