Excuse me, but I’m cranky.
At first, when I saw I’d been recommended a $22.99 hairbrush, I scoffed a little. I was used to buying the cheapest brush from Coles and then yelling when the handle broke off a week later.
“How different can a hairbrush be?” I thought to myself. It just has bristles and a handle (or sometimes… not) and then two hours later your hair is full of knots again.
But then I calculated how much money I had definitely wasted on things like conditioning masks, detangling sprays and crappy combs that had not at all made my hair easier to manage.
So, I jumped online and bought the goddamn hairbrush.
Once it arrived I did lots of bragging about my $22.99 hairbrush because it made me sound a) rich and b) like I was the type of person who knew what they were doing when it came to ‘beauty’ and things of that nature.
My sister called me an idiot before obviously stealing it and remarking that it was magic.
That’s when I trialled it and holy goodness gracious.
IT WAS MORE THAN A HAIRBRUSH. IT MADE ME LOOK LIKE I’D JUST BEEN TO THE HAIRDRESSER AND GOT A $40 BLOW DRY.
To be clear, I have absolutely no idea how to blow dry my hair. None. I just wave it around a little until it's not dripping wet anymore. That manoeuvre people do with the brush and the hair dryer and the pulling and the tension is just something I've never understood.
