Michel Mercier noticed that in his hair salons, women loved having their hair styled but at home, when it came to hastily brushing his 12yr old daughter’s hair in the morning, there were tears as hair and brush would become tangled with each other.
So he set out to design a brush that would make daily brushing a more pleasant experience and less damaging to the hair.
A patented brush made up of 428 bristles positioned at different lengths with a unique geometric distribution which helps disperse the pressure placed on the hair when brushing. So no more tears and tugging of the hair. The brushes are colour coded in pink, blue and green, each one designed to suit different hair types: fine, normal and thick.
The brush can be used on wet or dry hair, curly or straight, and on all hair textures: European, Afro and Asian.
The brush does work but it did take me a while to get used it because it is so wide - this may be because I am used to combs and narrow brushes. I have such fine hair that I find wide brushes actually flatten it more which is not a good hairstyle on fine tresses. So Michel if you are reading this, could you create a narrower brush for me please?
However I do find it's great on wet hair - the brush glides through and the flattening of the hair is not an issue as I'll be blowing drying it afterwards..
But please don't use the brush whilst blowdrying. Wait for Michel's profession wooden handle brushes to come out which he has created especially for blowdrying.
The Michel Mercier Detangling Brush is priced at £14.95, and is available from www.michelmercier.co.uk and selected salons
