Good for untangling long hair, but badly finished
on 15 February 2015
The best part about this brush is its one-piece design. At last I'd found a brush that would not tear hairs from my head where the handle was joined to the head. (I was so tired of having to waste time taking a pair of tweezers and scissors to past brushes just to try to remove the hairs that became jammed into the joint over time.)
It untangles long hair quickly, is very light, and feels comfortable in the hand.
I wanted to love it, but I agree with some others that it feels very sharp on the head, and I have to keep reminding myself to use it very slowly and gently to avoid pain. On examining it more closely, there is plastic 'flash' on the pin 'bobbles' which should have been removed at the factory stage, and the shafts of the pins feel rough.
I have grey hair, which is, by its nature, particularly fragile. This brush may be fine for those with 'stronger' hair, but as I feel that this brush is likely to damage my hair over time, I'm now looking for another with exactly the same design, but which is well-finished, with no rough or sharp surfaces.
Update (ten weeks later): Not having managed to find another plastic brush that wasn't scratchy, I just bought and reviewed a Kent comb (9T) instead which is very kind to the hair and scalp, and perfect for my needs (especially as I no longer use hair dryers), so I will not be returning to using this design of brush again, but will be using the comb along with an old and very soft bristle brush instead.
