This is, i believe, my first venture into hair care; an area I'm nearly complete inept in. I mean besides washing and conditioning and actually brushing my hair, there isn't a lot that gets done to it. Since i colored the front of my hair pink about 2 months ago it's become a little disobedient. Where previously it didn't really take a huge amount of work, it now seems to leave my scalp super dry and tends to get knotted up more then it used when it was longer (weird).
So for my first venture (unless you count buying a ton of tea tree oil to deal with the dry scalp issue) into actual hair care i purchased this Detangling brush; my other hair brush while good has very sharp bristles and sometimes i just can't face using it, especially now that my scalp is more sensitive.
This is, as you may already be familiar with; the Michel Mercier Detangling brush (for fine hair)
The pink brush that i have is for fine hair but there's a green for normal hair, and a blue for frizzy or curly or afro-y hair. So you should be able to find one suitable for your needs if your looking into getting a new brush for your mop.
The idea behind this particular brush is that there are several sets of bristles; some higher and some lower which is supposed to help it glide through your hair, detangle, and above all do so without catching and causing any pain. I imagine this would be a perfect brush to use on little kids; i remember screaming my head of when i was younger and mum would try brush my hair, this brush could have saved a great deal of tears.
With this product i haven't needed to use anything other then this brush to de-tangle my mop, no water or conditioner or detangling spray. It does all the work through the mystery of varying sized bristles. It's wide handles so easy to hold but not as easy to grip if your hands are wet. It's the average size for a brush so it won't take up any extra space and it looks bright and cute.
So does it achieve it;s purpose? Yup, it de-tangles and it doesn't hurt. It's not a miracle product to make your hair shiny and obedient overnight but for what it claims to do it succeeds, The brush is a touch unwieldy but so long as you dry your hands first it should cause no issues. I would say unless you have specific issues with pain while brushing your hair or massive tangling then this brush is not really necessary, otherwise it's does a good job as sorting out those issues.
Have you tried these?
