Before the Wet Brush I used this comb and loved it. I just like Wet Brush for the feel, and it's just a little more fun for me to brush conditioner through hair rather than comb it, but otherwise if I didn't discover the brush I could have easily just used this comb as my shower comb and been content. I used many from drugstore and from Sally's before it, and they don't come close. Don't feel as good, and many of them broke too easily and too fast, even just from falling on the floor, and detangling wasn't as easy and effortless with them, plus this is seamless and all the combs I got in ds had seams, not great for hair. It seems to be unbreakable, yet is so gentle, there's just enough flexibility, teeth are effective in gliding through tangles yet are soft on the scalp. Would make a great gift item to most anyone with any type of hair.
