Review: Manta Brush

Hey Everyone,

When you are used to looking at new products all the time, it isn’t often that you come across a product that amazes you and sparks emotion.

When I came across Manta I was pretty sure it was just another brush. If I had walked away without talking to the PR then I probably wouldn’t have felt any differently about this product to others. However, this brush has such a touching back story that I immediately wanted to try it. The power of emotions aye!

Tim Binnington, the inventor of Manta, is a professional hairdresser and has been in the industry for over 25 years. After his wife was diagnosed with cancer and had treatment, he soon came to the conclusion that there was nothing out there to cater to such delicate hair. If you have ever known someone to go through a similar experience you will understand the hours of research that some people do to find solutions for themselves or their loved ones. Tim just took that one step further and created what was needed.

Manta is a gentle brush that mimics the action of your fingers running through your hair. With patented FLEXGUARD technology, enabling each bristle to have a complete 360º motion to gently free knots. The soft touch material means there are no rough edges to catch your hair allowing the brush to glide through with minimal breakage.

My Thoughts

It takes some getting used to as the brush is meant to mould to your hand. However, once you are over that hurdle, it is really great. It doesn’t pull the hair and as a girl who gets a lot of knots that is an absolute god send. It does take that little bit longer to get knots out but it is definitely less painful and you can see there isn’t as much damage. Overall, I really like it and am really impressed by the technology.


£25 – For every 10 brushes sold 1 is given to a person with cancer

      I saw this when it won in a review programme. I was impressed especially as the idea was inspired from what Dani was going through at that time.
      My friend has breast cancer and is going through chemo at the moment. As she was losing her hair, she cut it all off. She misses brushing her long blonde locks and I thought this might be fantastic for her. Would this be suitable for her at the moment as the reviews for people with hair say they can use it for scalp massage? I don’t know how chemo affects the scalp.
      Helen is bravely documenting her journey on Instagram mybestbreastforward which is supporting others as well as getting advice for herself from others.
      I would love to buy this for her if it is suitable.
      Thank you for designing this. (I also work as a mammographer in breast screening in the UK)
