As simple as this brush may be it is definitely one of my go to tools! My hair is thin, yet I have a lot of it so certain brushes just can't hack it. They either get tangled, make my hair frizzy, or break (did I mention I have damaged hair?) this one takes the abuse everytime and still lives on to see another day. Also no worrying about the metal bristles with the little balls either falling out or scratching your scalp off.
