I thought, a brush that cost $80 bucks - wha?? But there are three girls in this house with lots of hair, so I thought I would try out the detangler. I've heard so much about Mason Pearson brushes from my stylist. And she was correct. It's lovely. It's hard to imagine what a brush would do that would make it so expensive. So I will try to explain.
BEFORE: We usually use Goody brushes. We have about a dozen in the house. My daughter gets out of the shower and I hold part of her hair to prevent pulling too hard on her scalp. I take one section at a time and struggle with the knots. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. And it leaves the ends damaged from so much pulling and tearing. I thought: This is just how her hair is and will be for the rest of her life.
AFTER: My daughter gets out of the shower. I brush her hair with the detangler. Each sweep of the brush now starts at her scalp, and unexplainably goes all the way down to the end without catching a single knot. Same head of hair. I can not explain it! The brushing takes less than a minute. Her hair is shiny on the top. And unbroken on the bottom. She doesn't mind her hair brushed anymore, in fact I find her sitting on the couch brushing her hair by herself with the Mason Pearson brush.
So this is why I gave it five stars. It's transformed our hair brushing process, gives us healthy looking hair, retuns 9 minutes to our day, and makes our relationship a little less stressful each morning. That's worth $80 by itself ;)
