I purchase this brush for my son's hair and my son didn't want to use it. So I tried it on my own hair and it does work and it does look nice once it's done. It takes a long time to do I I feel like it takes way more than 5 minutes to get what you're trying to get to an idea like the front of my hair where is really short to do it and that that took a lot and it says don't press down really hard but I don't know. It's a nice brush if you have the patience for that I say buy it it's definitely a good price for the product. And I'm going to try it a few more time to see if maybe I can get a better technique with it. And hopefully my child will let me try it on his hair which is way shorter than mine. But the outcome is nice. I would recommend it for someone to purchase. However if you have problems with your hands or anything autoimmune diseases that affect your joints it is not idea and I do so that may have added to me having issues with it.
