Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush Review

1Women with straight hair will always envy the ones with curly hair and just the other way round. Women with thin, breakable and prone to tangling long hair will always be jealous on the ones who wear their hair short, while everybody complains about the same thing: sometimes, you can do just about anything and get closer to miracles, hair just tangles and falls and breaks and makes women’s lives a living hell.

So how about having a hair brush which not only detangles, but also helps women keeping their hair strands where they should be, on their heads and not on the floor? Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush is an As Seen on TV product available on Amazon and other specialized websites that promises it will make the tangled, breaking and falling hair problem go away. In our Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush Review we will look deeper into the matters to see how things truly work.


This self-grooming device looks almost like any other brush, but has the feature of having bristles that vary in length. Due to this particular design, the brush detangles thick and coarse hair in less of the time needed when using regular brushes, reduces pressure and the number of strokes needed and makes the hair brushing painless (especially for children) because it has many contact points that manage to minimize pressure.

Reasons to buy the Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush

–          If you have thick, curly, coarse hair

Having any type of hairdo that makes you cry every time when you try to stick a comb in it or brush it requires a lot of patience and a lot of faith in brushes. This one will untangle your hair to some extent, reducing the amount of time and pain you need to endure to get things done.

–          If you have kids with hair problems

2Girls with long tangling hair are the ones more likely to benefit from this brush, as some fathers noticed that the girls’ level of crying and fighting with their mothers over hair brushing decreased significantly. Also, if they are at the beginning of their hair management, girls will benefit from it too, as it is easy to use.

–          If you shed a lot of hair and nothing else can help you

There are a lot of beauty products that at some point prove themselves being efficient in reducing the amount of hair women shed. Brushes also sustain this problem as some actually break the hair themselves. However, this brush was reported to diminish the shedding problem in some cases.

Consumer Issues and Concerns

This is exactly that type of product that will not work the same for everybody, only because not all women out there have the same type of hair, tangling or shedding problems. Regarding this particular product, there seem to be two factions on opposite grounds: the ones who were perfectly happy with this product and the ones who were disappointed by it. So given this almost tie, let’s take a deeper look into the matters.

One reason of concern expressed in a Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush review is that the bristles seem to bend, twist and get soft after a period of time. There are other regular brushes which are subdued to the same phenomena, while those which seem to be indestructible, keeping their bristles harder than steel usually hurt a lot when pressed against the scalp. This is more a matter of how often the brush is used, how hard you press to detangle your hair and how sensitive your scalp is, as the second problem mentioned by users was that it still hurts.

But does it or doesn’t it detangle the most tangled of hairs? It does to a certain extent. It is still a brush and some women just have barb – wire like hair which can’t be detangled unless going through some effort and some pain.

Women with very long, thick and coarse hair complained about the brush not being able to penetrate their hair deep to their scalp and the bristles getting flattened right away.3

The Verdict

Given all customers’ opinions regarding this product, the verdict of this Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush review is that it’s safe to assume it does a decent job at detangling the hair and keeping it from breaking and shedding in large amounts. However, if you know you have difficult hair and a soft brush won’t help you much, it is recommended to search for other similar products which are proven to have better results.
