Michel Mercier Detangling Brush

Michel Mercier ‘Untangle Your Day’ Detangling Brush for Thick Hair – £14.95*

For pretty much my whole life I’ve been on the hunt for a brush that works well with my hair. I can still remember my mum brushing my hair when I was 8 and me screaming so loud that the neighbours came round to check everything was ok.  

Michel Mercier to the rescue! Their uniquely designed and patented brush is made up of 428 bristles all positioned in 32 different heights and 16 different diameters. The brush is available for 3 hair types; thin, medium and thick and works on all hair types whether it’s European, Afro or Asian. 

I was really excited when I heard about the Tangle Teaser and I remember rushing out to buy one, but the minute I tried it I was really disappointed. I felt that the Tangle Teaser just brushed the top layer of my hair and didn’t at all work it’s way through my thick hair. It was also really hard to hold onto as they don’t have handles. I used it once and then never again… 

Michel Mercier’s detangle brush is everything I wanted the Tangle Teaser to be. It has a handle, it’s lightweight and it perfectly glides through hair detangling everything and not breaking one single strand of hair. It’s perfect for the summer to take on holiday, but I’ll also be using it throughout the year. It’s also great for children’s hair… oh how I wish this was around when I was little. 

The Michel Mercier brushes are available online here and in selected Lloyd Pharmacies.

    My hair takes FOREVER to be completely knot free these days, I feel like I brush it all through, and then if i change the brush direction slightly, it knots up again!
    This looks great!x

    I was going to get the tangle teaser, because i have such long hair and its always a pain to brush through it with my paddle brush! But this looks a lot better as the one thing that put me off with the tangle teaser was their was no handle so this is a better purchase! Might try it out 🙂 xo

    Looks like a version of the Tangle teezer? But less like a brush you would use on a horse and more like a hair brush so that’s a plus! After reading your review I’d really like to try one, they sound really good

    So glad to read about this! My hair is fine and prone to being massively tangled, so I was really excited to try Tangle Teaser – it was so disappointing! Like you said, it doesn’t feel like it really gets in and brushes your hair, which makes the whole process take a lot longer (although I guess this makes it relatively gentle!).

    Looking forward to trying this!

    I should really try this out, because I agree the tangle teezer really doesn’t do the job! As you say it just combs the top layer of hair, but really doesn’t even get near combing every single hair xx

    This brush sounds lovely, and very technical! I really like the idea that it doesn’t break the hair as my hair is very fragile at the moment, so I might need to look into getting one. Thankyou!

    I was debating whether or not to get the tangle teaser, but now I know what I will be picking up instead!

    I have a really weird hair in the sense that it’s fine and thin, but has a LOT of volume, so it’s deceivingly thick (?). I seriously need to try this brush and see if it’s nice for my hair because I’ve found it hard to come across one that pleases me and doesn’t break my hair.

  12. Lola says:

    I think I found my perfecet brush in boots, but then the handle broke so i am back to square one, i might check these out! xx

    I’m really intrigued by this now.. I love my Tangle Teezer but I’d love to try this as a comparison X
