i have the longest hair, and my hair is prone to the most painful knots. i have been struggling for years, and even considered chopping my locks. Takealot had this puppy on special and took advantage of the price and got it. oh my god! that was honestly the first thing i said after i used it, this little brush that fits in the palm of your hand has literally blown my mind. it untangles hair without much effort and no more tugging and battling my own hair. the knots have become a thing of the past now. and i cannot live without mine.
