Color SB3*:


The Mason Pearson Sensitive is a softer bristle version of the Handy Pure Bristle brush

  • Best suited for fine, thin hair of any length.
  • Also recommended for African hair.
  • 6 rings of gentle pure boar bristle tufts set in a pneumatic rubber cushion that regulates the penetration of each tuft to gently condition the hair and scalp.
  • Overall size is 8 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.
  • Cleaning brush is included, as well as complete use and care instructions.
Note: The Sensitive's bristles are rather soft, so unless your hair is fine and thin, stiffer bristles will be required to reach down to your scalp. Consider a Pure Bristle model if your hair is of fine to normal thickness. If your hair is described as "fine, but a lot of it", consider a brush in the Bristle & Nylon range.

Pleasantly surprised! November 25, 2015
Reviewer: GERRI from MAULDIN, SC United States  
My "Sensitive" Pure Bristle Brush (SB3) was delivered the day after I left for a 7-day vacation.  On arrival home, went by PO to pick up my massive amount of "held" mail, including my order.  Couldn't wait to open the box and use it for the first time...WOW, my scalp felt so good, did not notice any hair in brush.  Was afraid it would be too soft, but it's not.  The bottom line is I love this brush and I'm excited to have it.  I plan to order the purse size soon.  I threw all my old brushes away!!!  Thank you Tressence.com for providing such a quality product and for helping me decide on the best brush for me.

A healthy new way of brushing December 8, 2011
Reviewer: Judith Warby from Carlingford, nsw Australia  
I purchased two 'Sensitive' Pure Bristle Brushes. Both my sister and I who have fine hair, felt our hair should be  'less stressed'  after brushing previously.  We are very happy with the results from our Mason Pearson brushes and our hair is looking and feeling much healthier.

My first Mason Pearson November 16, 2011
Reviewer: Patty Mantin from Oregon  
I've never used a boar bristle brush and wasn't in the market for one. However, a kind friend heard me lament the slow but continual loss of my hair as I "gracefully" age and suggested I try one of the Mason Pearson brushes offered at Tressence.com.

"I don't brush my hair because it'll fall out," I told him. He persisted and I decided to give the brush a chance. Normally,  while hair drying, I use a round plastic brush only to tuck under the ends of my hair in a 'bob' or 'page-boy' style. I've been afraid to brush my hair from the scalp outward.

I contacted Tressence.com, and am now the proud owner of a Mason Pearson boar bristle brush. In an odd way, it's helped me 'reconnect' with the beauty of my brown but graying locks instead of always worrying about the strands that fly away.

I brush my hair every morning and it feels wonderful to do so. Perhaps that increases the circulation up top. I'm not noticing any increase in hair loss, perhaps even less fallout. I feel like I have to make up for lost time; it's been so long since I really brushed my hair with a real brush.

Thank you to my friend and to Tressence.com, a website I would do business with again, anytime. The site and service was user friendly, quick and professional. The brush is handsome, the handle smooth to the touch and quite nice. I expect to use it for a long time.

Good Brush February 16, 2010
Reviewer: Marilyn from Singapore  
Tressence did a very fast delivery! I am beginning to have thinning hair, so I bought the sensitive version. But honestly, I do not know how different is the sensitive brush vs the others. The brush itself is good, and does a good job massaging the scalp when I brush my hair. Unlike some other brushes, it doesn't hurt my scalp even if I am a bit heavy handed. And I like that it comes with a cleaning brush for easy maintenance/washing. Thanks!
