I must admit, I was hesitant when I first saw this Goody "Ouchless" Brush. It looked flimsy to me, and thusly an evil brush that would rip at my tangles when I was brushing my hair out. OH HOW I WAS WRONG! I don't know what it is about the design of this brush, but it gets all the tangles out without snagging the hair. It has really flexible bristles so it's gentle on the hair and the scalp. It's a total steal at about $8.00 and now my favorite brush.
