When you have long or thick hair (or both, in my case) the thought of brushing it after washing is a total nightmare. That’s why I totally rely on detangling brushes to sort my mop out, and was super excited to try out the Michael Mercier Detangling Brush.
I instantly loved the fact that the brush has a huge handle, which makes the brushing process much easier. The lovely PR company who sent me the brush took into account the thickness of my hair, and sent me the ‘Thick Hair’ version.
The brush has a total of 428 bristles, distributed in a way which “disperses pressure placed on the hair during brushing”. This means that it is designed to detangle and reduce hair loss during brushing!
So, here is what my hair looked like straight after towel drying (it’s not a pretty sight!):
I quickly ran my fingers through my hair to break it all up, then set to work with the Detangling Brush! The result?
I am so incredibly impressed with how this brush worked! It took me less than 60 seconds to brush out my hair, which is beyond incredible. The brush barely tugged or pulled and it really smoothed down the hair. I was so excited to be using it time after time as my go-to brush for my wet and tangled hair!
But, as I have said many times before, I am notoriously clumsy and over-enthusiastic. I decided to grab the brush to use whilst drying my hair. Then…bad things happened.
My hairdryer totally melted the bristles! I couldn’t actually believe that it happened, and that my hair now smelt of melted plastic. So I took a little look at the box…
I am so, so stupid! It was clearly labelled on the box that the brush should not be used with heat, but in my excitement I didn’t read the warning. It’s such a shame as the brush is amazing, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, but have now made mine unusable!
The brush retails for around £14.95, and if you have a problem with super tangled hair, this is the brush for you. I will be annoyed at myself for so long!
