I loved this brush, the way it handled, the way it left my hair until I noticed the bristles were disappearing and becoming 'matted down'. I use my hair dryer right up against the brush, on a medium heat setting to straighten my hair as I dry it, and assumed that the matting down of the bristles was maybe hair getting knotted and somehow pulling the bristles flat (even though it had never happened to any other hairbrush I'd owned, it was my only explanation) - then I realised upon closer inspection, after about 8 weeks use, that indeed half the bristles were melted and gone! Totally weird! I've notified the company that makes them, but they have not acknowledged my email, and were very hard to track down. I wouldn't recommend it, despite it being lovely.
