When I first saw the Manta* hair brush I immediately thought it was a translation from French – la mante, meaning mantis because there is definitely something of the insect about this! In fact, manta translates in Spanish as blanket. As well as feeling completely comfortable in the hand, Manta is absolutely excellent at giving your scalp a good massage as you brush through and scalp massage is essential for blood flow and circulation, in turn excellent for keeping your scalp healthy.
I have to say that my scalp was positively tingling after a good brush through with this. Manta was originally developed for delicate hair – it claims to minimise breakage so if you suffer from hair breaks, it’s worth considering. There certainly aren’t any edges to it and no snagging – the bristles are flexible so move with your hair rather than tearing through it. It’s £25 although I’ve seen it listed at QVC on special for £19 HERE. It’s apparently also anti-static (my hair gets static after a dye but other than than not usually and not while I was trialling the brush) so if your hair raises at the slightest opportunity, again, it’s worth considering. I think I’d prefer that it didn’t come in a big plastic box – a cardboard box (for recycling) would do just as well.
