I want to share why I really chose this particular brush. It is, after all, JUST a brush, and the only thing even remotely “new” about it is that the bristles are made of copper. However, regardless of all the myriad of gadgets that can be accumulated for hair-care routines, no one can make much progress if the Basics are skipped. What good would it do to have all kinds of curl-producing equipment, if the starting point is a frizzy, tangled mess, right? (Okay, unless we're talking about the long-term goal being a cultivation of some powerful dreadlocks, and a steady diet of jerk-chicken, along with an upcoming trek to Lalibela, but I have none of those in my immediate future, alas.) My main focus at 59 years of age is to get the fundamentals taken care of as quickly and painlessly as possible, so I can get on with the things in Life I truly enjoy. And that is where those new copper bristles come into play.
This brush lets me come out of the shower and do a “drip-dry” and just go! Seriously, I can towel dry my hair, run this brush through it, and it really turns out with my hair looking pretty good. I'd be lying if I said I looked “just like I walked out of a high dollar salon”, because the only time you look that way is – well, when you walk out of a high dollar salon. BUT – this brush takes care of tangles something great, and my hair dries to a nice, fluffed look with no frizzes. I'm not an expert and so I can't say for sure, but it's probably because there isn't a lot of stress during the brushing – like, the hair shafts don't get all wadded up in the bristles, it just kind of glides right through and makes an easy time of the whole untangling. The bed of the bristles is flexible, very much so, and this also probably helps with keeping the untangling situation nice and easy. And the ends of the bristles are rounded, which not only feel good on my scalp, but I think they help add body to my hair when I am brushing it as it's drying.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with this brush. There are only 2 things I wish were just a bit different. (1) The brush is difficult for me to clean out the leftover hairs when I am through. And (2) I chose a size too large for my purse. I have got to find a mini-version of this to take with me when I am out and about. However, on the “plus” side I would like to mention that this brush is (apparently) extremely durable.. As it was laying there on my vanity the other day, my PBB (PitBullBaby) darted his head into the bathroom just long enough to snag my brush and took off like a streak! By the time I got into my wheelchair and chased him down to retrieve it, he'd had it for approximately 22.6 seconds. I am happy to report there is not the slightest mark on it, not anywhere. I just knew he was going to demolish it, his teeth are legendary for the damage they can do to inanimate objects in double-quick time, but nope, the body of the brush is just as smooth as the day I took it from the package. Not that I recommend you try this by way of experiment with yours, but my brush survived the encounter with flying colors. Pokey Joe (my PBB) was pleased to hear that I've decided the brush is a Keeper – but for me, not him!
