About Fuller EXStatic Hair Brush
Made by Fuller, ExStatic Hairbrush is claimed to be an ionic hairbrush that will reduce static or frizz and make your hair more manageable. They tout their battery-powered brush will instantly increase softness and eliminate dirt or grime, while also adding shine and body. And when you’re finished brushing, all you have to do is turn the EXStatic brush off and shake, and the collected debris will instantly release.
Fuller Brush Company was founded in 1906, and at one time was famous for its legions of door-to-door salespeople. In 2012, the company filed for bankruptcy, but a savvy investor named David Sabin stepped in with his company Victory Park Capital and bought it, promising to rejuvenate and expand the Fuller brand.
How ExStatic Hairbrush Works
ExStatic Hairbrush (it appears to have been previously marketed under the name Fuller Ionic Brush) is a rounded, flat brush with an ergonomic handle that’s claimed to contain “specifically designed water drop anti-static bristles” and advanced ion technology. It is powered by 2 AAA batteries, which are not included.
To use the ExStatic Hairbrush, the manufacturer instructs you to press the button, which will activate “powerfully charged ions” that surround each follicle as you move it through your hair.
These ions are said to eliminate static, to smooth and straighten frizzy hair, soften and tame thick hair, lock in volume to thin hair, and restore moisture. They add that the ExStatic Brush’s ions act like a magnet to attract dirt and debris, which is claimed to keep your hair cleaner so you have to wash it less often.
They state ExStatic Hairbrush works instantly to tame and shine your hair. When you are finished, you simply have to turn it off and give it a shake, after which dirt and other particles will fall away (you may want to do this over a trash bin).
Despite this, ExStatic Hairbrush should not be used on wet hair, and its handle should not be placed under running water. To clean the bristle pad, remove and wash with warm water.
ExStatic Hairbrush Pricing and Returns
ExStatic Hairbrush can be purchased from the Fuller website for $29.90, which includes free shipping and a detangler brush. You can opt to make this in 2 payments of $14.95, but you’ll also have to pay an additional $7.95 in shipping.

Bottom Line: Is ExStatic Hairbrush a Scam?
Fuller has indeed been a household name for over a century and the new owners seem to be sincere about its revival. We also appreciate ExStatic Hairbrush’s “triple guarantee,” and the reviews for this brush are generally in the 3-star (“Good”) range. However:
- They don’t list the specific wattage for the ExStatic Hairbrush.
- Not all ionic hairbrushes are created equal. If you have thicker hair, you may need a brush that has more watts. The shape of the brush itself can also be a factor. For more information, check out this article about Choosing Ionic Brushes.
