A few weeks ago I went to the launch of a new hair brush set to hit the UK by Michel Mercier. The idea behind it is similar to that of Tangle Teezer that is is suppose to make it easier and less painful to detangle hair as well as reducing hair breakage.
I got the chance to meet Michel who explained that he was brushing his young daughters hair when she complain on the discomfort leading him to create a brush that would not only him but everyone. This brush is aimed at everyone (that needs to brush their hair, not much use if your bald) even at fathers that need to brush their daughters long hair.
The brush is said to have 482 bristles all of different heights to help disperse the pressure points placed on the hair whilst burshing and detangling resulting in less pain, hair loss and hair breakage.
There are three different brushes available all colour coded to suit different hair types fine, normal and thick
I got the pink one aimed at fine hair and wasn’t too sure to expect as I wasn’t too keen on the Tangle Teezer. However unlike the Tangle Teezer the bristles on this brush are all different sizes rather then just two sizes meaning that it brushes the whole way through your hair making it instantly better then the Tangle Teezer in my books.
I am not in love with the shape and design of the Michel Mercier brush* but I do think it completely works and I do reach for it everyday. I don’t think it is perfect but it is getting there. It does make my hair a little static, I think it doesn’t work very well in wet hair and it can’t be used with heat but I think this is something they may improve on when the pro brushes are brought out next year.
Although a little more expensive then the Tangle Teezer it is worth the money! If you struggle with your hair or anyone elses this is a fabulous product, it will help your morning run more smoothly.
