Rated 1 out of 5 Way to ruin a great brush!
I was a devotee of your all wood (wood straight bristles & wood handle) brush. It was the only brush that would work with my long hair. I went into your stores and get 5 at once to have everywhere. Eventually I would lose them & wear them down.
Your newly designed brush is the worst thing that could've happened to my hair; simply put, ended up in the trash after one use.
BRING BACK THE PREVIOUS MODEL PLEASE!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PDXdesi Not for Thick Hair!
I have thick wavy hair. This brush barely skims the surface of my mane because the bristles are too short or they get bent/not strong enough. They do not penetrate deep enough through my hair to brush my scalp. Besides the engineering flaws, I like the product quality and overall look. Its eco-friendly and much better looking than the regular plasticky hair brushes found in stores.

Rated 1 out of 5 by McPatty You ruined a good product
The Body Shop redesigned this brush and now it will not work with wet long hair. I used to be able to easily use a body shop brush (with straight bristles). It would go through with wet hair with ease. This new design just pulls and gets caught in my hair. Please give us back the old design!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jeltez42 Not like the old ones, but not all bad
It is not the round balls at the top that rip out the hair, it is how the "bristles" are connected to the rubber that makes the brush hard to clean and rips out the hair. In the old version, the "bristles" connected differently and hair could not get "caught" under them like it does with the new brush.
Now with that said, I have very coarse, thick, hard to brush hair. This brush did not rip my hair out by any means. The balls on the tips were not a problem at all. I did find the brush hard to clean, which is a definite minus.
I hope the buyers in Corporate really look at how the brushes are constructed when they buy the next lot. Over the past 8 years with my "old" brush, I have lost a few "bristles" (3 to be exact) due to the lack of a "bump" where the bristle meets the rubber. I don't think that will happen with the new brush. If I had my choice, I would take the old style, loose a few bristles over the years and not have the cleaning headache.
I have always loved these brushes, now it is down to a like. I would not recommend them any more.
