I have tried a few different de-tangling brushes, and have found this to be the best. I like that it has a long handle. It makes it that much easier to use. My daughters hair gets extremely knotty and hates to have her hair brushed. She said this one hurts the least, which is always a plus. It also does the job a bit quicker than the others I have used. The bristles are not to hard so don't scratch your head either. Thumbs up from miss 9.
