Sonia Kashuk Bristle Hairbrush

For all my life, I've purchased brushes from the dollar store. I had one requirement. They should untangle my hair. ...And my hair usually so straight that I don't even brush my hair.

Except the thing with dollar store brushes is that they break after falling from the counter to the floor after too many times. So I had to go get a new brush. Being the new me, I looked up some brush reviews.

To my absolutely surprise, I found out that there were such things as brushes that cost more than 100 dollars. Specifically, the Mason Pearson Brush.

Not only that, but I found out that there was a dupe for this brush, the Sonia Kashuk Bristle Brush.



This was much more affordable at fourteen dollars.


As you can see, this is a lot fancier than plastic. It's made of piggy hair and stockings. 




I've been using it for a few weeks and I have to say that I'm definitely not used to the fact that the bristles on this move when I brush it. I don't notice a ton of differences between this one and much cheaper ones. One of the differences I do notice? Little to no static. 

How do you brush your hair?

  5. I've never heard of 100 dollars brushes! :O
    But I hate brushing my hair as well, it's always a battle.
    Regarding the malware thing, it has been happening to most blogs. I've heard a lot of people complaining about the same. I guess it has to do with a widget that we have on our blogs.

  6. I've never been a fan of bristle brushes. Feel too harsh against my head. I simply use a wide tooth comb.

  7. I hear that natural boar bristle brushes are great for your hair--I haven't tried though. I'm not much of a brusher--I usually just comb it out.

  10. I only brush my hair if it has been blown out or set. I have naturally curly hair, so if it's just left to air-dry, brushing it would uncurl all the curls! :-(

    When I set or blow out my hair, I use both a plastic "detangling" brush (if I need it) and a boar-bristle brush that smooths out any fly-aways or frizz. I've wanted a Mason Pearson brush for a long time, but they're too expensive for something I wouldn't use every day! Glad you found a cheaper alternative!

  12. Great to hear you've moved on up in the brush world! =P For the past few years, I've been using some pretty cheap combs to comb my hair....no brushing. My hair isn't too unmanageable since I don't style it. =D

  14. I was given a Mason Pearson brush by my grandmother when I was a little girl. I absolutely love it and will have it forever, but there is no way I would have spent that much if I was the one buying it!

  18. You know, I've been thinking about brushes lately too (I guess because my brush handle is hanging on for dear life). I usually use a large paddle brush. I find that I get less breakage that way. I can't believe there is such a thing as a $100 brush. Does it have diamonds on it? It should! That Sonia Kashuk one sounds like it does the job. I'm gonna go check it out.

  20. As a kid my mom would brush the HELL out of my hair...omg girl. My hair is curly in texture on top of mom not regularly using condition, my hair was just all over the place. I hated washing it, and having her blow it out, and then brushing the hell out of it the next morning to get it into a uber tight ponytail so tight my eyes were slanted back! I have fear of brushes...I do own 1 or 2 but never use them. lol.

  22. Angelica Ng - I've never used bristle brushes that are this harsh against my head, but I'm not a fan of wide tooth combs because... I can do the same with my fingers.

    LePetiteLemon - My hair isn't too unmanageable either and I don't style it, but it's a good thing to have in case I do want to.

    Maycie After Five - You should. I hear it lasts a while!
