I ordered this brush for my son, but have been using it for myself too. My son has Aspergers and one of the issues he has to deal with is extremely sensitive skin. He has been complaining for years every time I comb his hair and it wasn’t until recently when I was doing some research that I discovered that many Autistic children hate having their hair combed because they are hyper-sensitive to touch, especially on the scalp. Since then, I have been on the search for a soft brush that he would feel comfortable using.
What I like best about this brush:
* The bristles on this are what makes this a standout as compared to other brushes that make the same claims. The bristles are wavy, not straight. As you are brushing the hair, I think their design makes them more reactive to the changes in hair, especially hair that is tangled. This is an innovative design that I have not seen before.
* Each bristle has a soft round knob at the end, making it softer on the scalp.
* Bristles are securely held on a soft core elevated pad. I even tried pulling some of the bristles out and they would not budge.
* The movement of the bristles along with the knobs at the end, securely held in the brush pad are what makes this a brush my son will actually use without whining and crying. I believe other Autistic children or any child who has a sensitive scalp will find the same to be true.
* The nice round mirror on the back of the brush was an unexpected bonus.
* The handle is comfortable and not slippery.
* The brush is compact and easy to take along with you without taking up too much room.
* Bright colors and the bristles different design seem to make the design attractive to kids, my son thought it was pretty cool looking 🙂
The product listing claims that it will not pull out your hair, but it does pull out mine. I will post some pictures of what it looks like after one use on my hair after a night’s sleep. I really don’t believe though that any brush would not pull out some hair if the hair has a lot of knots or tangles in it. So this is really a problem with the product description, not something inherent in the brush itself that would necessitate a lower ranking.
Improvements I would make:
I think if the brush were just a little bit larger and had a longer handle, it would be the perfect tool for parent’s to use to get those troublesome tangles out with less pain and stress for even children with long hair. As it is, it is not as easy to hold as I would like. With the longer handle, some molded grips for the fingers would be awesome.
As for my son, he seems to really like it and says that it is the best brush that we have tried, and we have tried a lot! I have been using it on my hair also and find it to be the best thing that I have used when it comes to tangles. I usually comb my hair out once a day and put it up in a ponytail. I spend much of my day in bed due to my health, so the back of my hair gets a lot of tangles in it. If I ever go to bed with my hair wet, it is even worse! This is the first brush that I have tried that actually gets the tangles out the quickest and with the least amount of pulling and tugging. This is true wet or dry.
