If you read my review of the infamous Tangle Teezer, you will know I was really not a fan. It just did nothing whatsoever for me and I really regretted spending as much money on it as I did. You can read my full rant in my review, 'Tangle Teezer - Why it's not worth the hype'. There's only one other product on the beauty scene which has caught my eye which works in the same way as the Tangle Teezer, except this one actually works! The Michel Mercier Detangling Brush*, £7.99 is exactly what I wanted the Tangle Teezer to be, but better. The Michel Mercier Detangling Brushes came in three versions; the pink and black version I have is for fine hair, there's also a black and green brush which is for normal hair and a black and blue brush which is for thick hair. I think this is a massive plus point for the Detangling Brush because it caters for various hair types. I have naturally very curly hair, but it's also exceptionally fine. The only things I can use on my hair are Denman brushes. Until this baby came into my life...
The Michel Mercier Detangling Brush for Fine Hair is one of the easiest to use hair tools I have ever had. A huge benefit to this brush is the fact that it has a handle - this is where it differs from other products on the beauty market. The entire brush is made from plastic, but the texture of the plastic ensures you can get a firm grip when using. This doesn't fly out of my hands, I don't drop it and I don't catch it in my hair because it falls out of my hands. Wherever I guide this brush through my hair, it flows through effortlessly, smoothly and painlessly detangling my hair without causing any hair loss. It's also advertised as being good for preventing split ends, although I've recently had a fairly big chop so my ends are pretty healthy as it is. I love that the bristles, which feel more gentle on my scalp and hair than the ones on the Tangle Teezer did, are all different lengths. Although my hair isn't thick like a lot of lucky people, it still requires the variations in bristle length to get through all of my hair and rid me of any tangles. I like the design and colour of the brush, it's not childish or patterned, the colours work well together and it is easy to find in my drawer of hair tools. Basically, I really like this brush. So much so that I've actually stopped using my Denman brushes and rely solely on this now. It's a little bit more pennies wise than the original Tangle Teezer, but for me you're paying for a better designed product. If there was ever a need to, I would replace this without a second though, although I can tell from the sturdy, well-made design that this will easily last a couple of years at least; I'd also happily buy this for friends. For me, the Michel Mercier Detangling Brush beats the Tangle Teezer hands down, and now I couldn't be without it.
