(WMC-TV) - ANDY, WILL IT WORK? Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush = WISEBUY!

This is one of those I thought would be just a gimmick. 

I couldn't have been more wrong.

The $15 Michel Mercier Ultimate Detangling Brush -- available at Bed, Bath & Beyond -- boasts 428 perfectly placed bristles of different sizes. Its design is supposed to de-tangle hair better than ordinary brushes.

We tested both the normal hair and the thick hair versions of the brush at the Hair Design School, 804 S. Highland St., near the U of M.

We tested them against ordinary brushes on mannequins with teased and tangled hair -- both normal hair and coarse hair.

We tested them on the coarse, thick hair of an African-American woman -- and on the thin hair of a Caucasian woman. 

Each and every time, the Ultimate Detangling Brush would flow right through the hair with no resistance, just like in its web infomercial. Ordinary brushes would constantly catch and tug.

"I think it is worth the $15 price," said Hair Design School student Raven Shaw.

"I think it is too," said student Maurice Joyce.

The Ultimate Detangling Brush is a WISEBUY.
