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.
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.
