MasonPearson Detangler Comb As the name implies, this comb is used to detangle the hair, wet or dry. The broad handle gives the user a firm grip to pull through snarls and tangles. Mason Pearson combs are handmade from the finest celluloid material in the world. This is the same material used to make designer costume jewelry, hair ornaments, and eyewear. About Mason Pearson: In the late 1800s, founder (and engineer) Mason Pearson introduced inventions that revolutionized the approach to making hairbrushes. Today, the unique rubber-cushion pad on each Mason Pearson brush is still made by hand and each handle is hand polished, using Mr. Pearson's original techniques.
