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.
Fuller offers a 60-day “triple guarantee” for ExStatic Hairbrush. This means you can try it and if you don’t like it, return within that time frame and they will refund the purchase price, original S&H charges, plus return 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.

Broke after one use!
I purchased the As Seen On TV Fuller ExStatic Hair Brush on 1/10/18. I have not even had a chance to submit the enclosed warranty card since this was just delivered. After the first use, the rubber bristle mat of the brush fell out. I was able to put it back in but now it will not stay attached to the brush and falls out with ever attempt to brush my hair. The brand new brush is now useless.
I emailed two different email addresses in hopes to get in touch with someone from the company but each replies with undeliverable email address!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Detangle and clean
It was worth the money if for no other reason than it detailed my hair gently. I paid less than any other brush that detangles your hair. It removes the smoke smell from my hair. As for softness, my hair is already soft, there are no chemicals other than what is in shampoo and cream rinse.
I have a baby chihuahua that likes to get outside with the big dogs. I tried it on her it removed the smell.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fuller EXStatic Hair Brush.
I came across this brush by looking for some hair pins. I am 69 with white hair colored to a blonde color. With a use of "leave in conditioners," my hair is not too bad. Since this brush was at a reasonable price, I bought it. The package said "As Seen on TV." I was skeptical but went for it. I must say, I was happily surprised.
I saw the result after a few strokes. I like the feeling of being able to run my fingers through my hair without yanking it. Morning combing is easy. I tried this brush on my Shih Tzu's tail and ears and liked the result. I will take my brush with me for my next hair appointment and let the hair stylist use it instead of her smoothing iron.
I will be buying few more of these and give them as a gift to my long haired friends and my dogs' groomer. To my short haired friend, I will just recommend this brush.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
