I'm sure my fellow long-haired guys and girls - whether you're emulating mermaids or just can't let go of glam rock - know what I mean when I say brushing long hair is a bitch. The tangles, the dreadlocks, the dire situation atop your head. The thought of pulling a comb through your matted mop ranks somewhere between root canal and pap smear.
You were introduced to the Tangle Teaser. You had a nice fling, you'll always have the memories. The Summer of '11. What you'll remember most however is the sullying fact his bristles were too, erm... short. He just couldn't hit the spot. Couldn't float your detangling boat.
The flame fizzled, you were once again on the market. You played the field for a while but found that good brushes were few and far between. You stopped looking. You were resigned to the fact you'd live with matted hair forever, lest you play the other side of the field (it was tempting too - but you knew you couldn't pull of a pixie, you'd be a KD Lang in a Twiggy world).
The eureka moment always happens when you're not looking. Before you know it, that brush sitting in a bag you'd written off for being only suitable for hair extensions will niggle at you. Your low pain threshold says, 'no'. You don't want to be hurt, especially after so much heartache. But you'll cave and you'll fall for Hair Secrets, who will beckon you into a world you'd long given up on: smooth, tangle-free locks.
The paddle shape, sparsely placed looped bristles were meant for long hair. While made to romance people with weaves and glue-beads, its merits transfer over to long hair: it doesn't tug, doesn't get caught and minimises breakage.
