Michel Mercier Detangling Brush Review

While I was innocently shopping for groceries last week, I saw these brushes hanging off a stand in the toiletry section, and stopped in my trolley tracks, puzzled. At first I couldn’t remember why they seemed familiar, and when it hit me I immediately threw one into my trolley like a ninja, sacrificing my ready-to-eat avo’s in the process…

While at a beauty launch earlier this year, Leigh (from Lipgloss is my Life) and I were having a catch-up session somewhere in a corner and she looked at me with a deadpan serious face, saying that she loves this damn brush, and that she can’t think that anyone will use it and not like it/feel indifferent about it. That’s quite a big deal, considering these quiet corner conversations are more often reserved for way juicier things than detangling brushes, ffs. Read Leigh’s review here.

A closer look at the Michel Mercier detangling brush. And of course there’s a cat hair on it. *hangs head in shame*

I have to agree, and this is coming from someone who doesn’t even own a regular hairbrush. It sorts out the knots that form near my crown/root areas where I don’t apply conditioner, and it does so painlessly, quickly and with minimal hairfall/breakage. I also love the large paddle brush feel, it makes handling very easy.

There are three different types available (fine, normal and thick hair) and they’re colour-coded for easy use. While I was convinced that I picked mine up for R100, all signs online point toward a price point of R150, so I was probably mistaken (UPDATE: PHEW, I’M NOT LOSING MY MARBLES. THE PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED, AND THE RECOMMENDED SELLING PRICE IS NOW AROUND THE R100 MARK. NOTE TO SELF: CANCEL PSYCHIATRIST APPOINTMENT). Available at Checkers, Pick n Pay, Clicks, Dis-Chem.

      This was pre-scheduled post. If I saw this thing detangle the candy-floss that you call hair like I did that morning at Penny’s place, I would have written a sonnet in its honour.
