Freebie Friday!

If you haven't heard of the YouTube sensation Tori Kelly, it's time you did! She has the best vocals and is finally getting her name out which is well over due. Today I bring you guys her latest song "Dear No One". This is definitely a real anthem for the single hopeless romantic. Right now can get this single for free on iTunes. But don't just stop at this song. Her whole album is a must as well as her past albums. All I can say is FINALLY. There is a respectable artist who isn't winning people over with her body and has great vocals.

Rants & Raves: Michel Mercier Detangling Brush

I think its best to start this review telling you all about my hair type because I do think it will make a difference on how the product works for you. I have what is considered long hair. It normal thickness but at times can get a bit coarse. It is on the straighter side of wavy. I chemically treat it so it is a dry and damaged. And finally I do get some tangles but no a crazy amount that I cant control. So with that said today I will be reviewing the Michel Mercier Detangling Brush.

Product: Michel Mercier "Professionnel" Hair Brush

Product Claim: Smooth detangling with no resistance, less breakage, and reduced hair loss.

Price: $15-$20

Availability: Available at most drugstores

Pros: There are only a few pros that I found when using this product. The first is that it is readily available at several locations. Second, it comes in a variety of options to suit different hair types. I particularly like that feature because each hair type has its own needs. And lastly it did reduce how much of my hair breaks of when brushing.

Cons: It's on the higher end of pricing for a brush made of plastic. I know I saw it several times and thought about buying it until I saw the price, luckily I was able to get one for free. I am definitely not a fan of the way the product is built. I feel the plastic makes it less durable, the colors make them look tacky as opposed to higher end, and the ergonomics of the handle aren't as natural feeling and comfortable as I would prefer. And lastly, I don't think it made a huge significance in reducing tangles in my hair. 

Overall Opinion: If you can get this brush for $10 or less go for it. I think it would work best for people who have a lot of hair. For healthy hair the difference wouldn't be enough to justify the purchase. I think I would also recommend this for curly hair. I guess I don't hate this brush but also wouldn't pay too much for it. So should you buy this?... ummmmm idk flip a coin. Sorry.
