When I think back to where I got my favourite pocket-sized baby blue Mason Pearson hairbrush, I have to be totally honest and say I actually stole it from my BFF Zoe Irwin. In my defence Zoe does have several, being the most genius hairdresser they’re crucial for her kit, plus she had been urging me for years to use one on my hair.
Recently it’s also been a huge hit with my Goddaughters, who both have gorgeous long thick hair, and who found it so gentle and I quote, “not at all painful like when Mummy brushes my hair” The Mason Pearson Child Bristle Brush (£49.95 available at houseofastley.co.uk) is a handy handbag size and helps me care for my hair throughout the day. Kind enough for even the finest baby hairs – my goddaughters have christened it the ‘magic’ hairbrush – these five rings of boar bristle glide easily through knots, leaving my locks more manageable and shiny. As hairbrushes go, it’s not the cheapest hairbrush out there, but Mason Pearson are a brand known for durability – this is an investment that you’ll love and use for years, also doubles as an amazing microphone!
