These are great brushes and since buying my first one (now own 3, though I gave one to my daughter) I won’t use any other brush on my hair. Melatonin has kicked in so I’m too tired to leave a more coherent review, but these are great brushes (the Shine version is great on dry hair, too) and well worth this price.
@arielleslie The bristles are more flexible so it kind of glides over tangles and gently works them out rather than ripping through them. My daughter has fine hair, and I have fine curly hair that I usually only brush when it’s coated in conditioner. This is the only brush I can use for that without ripping out hair. For my daughter’s hair, it gets the tangles out without causing more breakage.
WTFITS? I’ve never had to pay taxes here!
What government asshole is responsible for this, I need to write an angry letter. Maybe. I’m lazy, will probably just bitch on reddit.
But still, WHO DID THIS?!!?
A: If you’re shipping to CA, IL, MO, NY, TX, or WA we’ll add the sales tax to your order. Most other states say you’re supposed to report and pay tax on out-of-state purchases. Whether you do that or not is your problem.
Actually, @jako99, we don’t have the highest sales tax; here in NYC, I pay 8.875% while people in Seattle pay 10.1% (I think). At least they have bright sunny weather, right? Oh, wait…
As for taxes as a whole, you may be right, though most of the articles I find saying NY is highest seem to be based on 2012 data (even articles published this year) and it isn’t clear if things like gasoline taxes are included. Articles I found using 2017 data that explicitly mention things like gasoline, electricity and other utilities, have Maryland and Minnesota higher than NY, though I’ll grant that NY is still up near the top even if it isn’t at the top.
@RedOx Those states are taxed because that’s where mediocre corporation has offices and/or employees. The law says you have to collect tax in any state where you have an actual presence, even if it’s one single employee.
If these are like the wet brushes I e purchased in store (different brand though) then yes they work great. We tried the wet brush after a hair stylist recommended it to my daughter with fine hair. If you ever brush long hair while it’s wet this makes it so much easier. Even if you are just brushing while blow drying.
The other brand I have used has wire bristles that bend over time. Hopefully these “intelliflex” bristles last longer. Either way I need a new one anyway, and now I have extras.
@mfladd Need a DeLorean first. "Starting March 1st, we’re turning off sign-ups for VMP, our $5/month membership with free shipping and other benefits on Mediocre sites. We’re going to rethink this whole ‘membership’ thing, and have some ideas we’ll try out soon, but the first step is ending VMP for new customers."proof
@decoratedwarvet Pretty much… Used to blast Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper and AC/DC… Ate some cilantro. Now it’s Johnny Mathis, Perry Como, Judy Collins, and Connie Francis played at a reasonable volume for the most part. Still crank Metallica though… it only removed 80% of the heavy metals.
These are awesome! I have naturally curly hair and a LOT of it but my individual strands are thin and break/snap easily if i tear through with the wrong brush. Brushes with bristles are a joke for me… they don’t penetrate the hair to actually get through knots - they just run over the top layer (not to mention giving me insane frizz, turning my hair into a bush). I learned as a teen to brush my hair out either in the shower with conditioner in it, or just after with a leave-in/detangling spray. Regular spiney brushes would work, but they broke more hairs, tearing and unyielding to knots. These brushes get the knots out, not only doing less damage, but with less pain.
My daughter’s hair is different, she has the same thin hair follicle, but she has less hair and it is slightly wavy. She kept stealing my brush so I paid $16 or so for a two pack on Woot’s Overlords site. With 4 kids, how often things “vanish”, this price and knowing they are 10 or 12 each at Target - I went ahead and ordered several.
I can’t reccomend these enough if you have long hair, thin hair that knots easily, curly hair… These are worth trying. I think they work best for us on wet hair with some conditioning, as I mentioned, but they are also my go-to morning brush on dry hair for my daughter’s “bed head” knots.
From the photos they look exactly like several hair brushes I already own. What could possibly be different? I have 2, that are of different brands (and the only difference is the shape of the handle and the brand name on them) where the brush head part looks identical to these photos and each other. When using them the act identically. They were cheaper too. I can’t image how theses would be any be different than the 2 I already own. Anyone done the “blind comparison test” of identically looking brushes?
Apathetic? I say knot. Get it, like knotted hair. I have succumbed to meh marketing strategy. Although I have virtually no hair, I pushed the button and bought three hair brushes. To be fair, I immediately thought of my two daughters, both of them extremely pregnant at this time, and my beautiful wife. All these ladies have long and beautiful hair. I remember back in the late 70’s I had hair that reached down to my waist. I guess I used it all up. But, I remember what a hassle it was trying to keep all the knots and tangles out. So, good work meh. You convinced a bald man to buy three hair brushes.
No vacuum of space here!
My wife uses these, and I use whatever brush is available when I step out of the shower. I do not need the advertised features of this brush, but I must say, I am disappointed when one of the two we own is not in the bathroom during the ~1 minute window I have to get my hair under control.
We’ve had them for years, and I’m always glad that none of the little beads at the end of the bristles have fallen off. I honestly enjoy these brushes.
These also emit a satisfying sound when in use. The rubber part the bristles are attached to acts like a drum head to amplify the sound. Sounds something like “scrumph scritch scrumpt” as the hair is brushed.
I hope to enjoy these for a while but I am sure the house elves will eventually get ahold of these too and put them with the dozens of other brushes of mine that they have made off with over the years. Most people have house elves like like to steal their left socks. Mine steal my left socks and my hair brushes.
This is an awesome brush. My aunt gave it to my daughterfor Christmas. It came highly recommended, apparently. It is amazing how it gets tangles out withour pulling any hair out. And it feels really good in your hand. This is a performance hair brush if ever there was one.
