THE MANTA

The Manta is the first brush to mould to the shape of your hand and scalp, creating less tension on each strand while massaging the scalp for fuller, healthier, shinier hair.
The patented FLEXGUARD technology on the base enables each bristle to have complete 360 degree motion to gently free knots and minimise breakage. The Manta glides responsively through hair for minimum breakage and maximum shine.

Tim Binnington the creator of The Manta has been a professional hairdresser for over 25 years. He created this brush for his wife who after a life-threatening illness had lost her hair. As it grew back she wanted to treat it as gently as possible to minimize breakage. Tim combining years of hands on experience with the latest materials and technology available developed a brush that would reinvent the way we treat our hair.

For every 10 brushes sold, they give one brush to a person living with cancer.
