This is my hair brush.
We've spent some really good years together. Sure we had some rough times together, but those were greatly outnumbered by the amount of great times we had.
We've learned to work together. We've learned to play together. And we've traveled all over the world together.
Sure there have been other brushes in my life, but not like this one. Oh no, not like this one. This brush in particular has bristles that are strong enough to hold and straighten large sections of my hair, yet the bristles are short enough not to get tangled in my large, dry summer mane.
The ceramic base that lay just below the bristles heats up by the air of the dryer, straightening, smoothing and shining my hair in a way no other brush ever could.
The large vented barrel brings airflow and volume to my tresses at any length, day or night.
And all of this, just above a rubberized handle for a well cushioned grip.
We are perfect together. And though I've wavered in the past, sewing wild oats with other high falutent brushes, it is this Conair Tourmaline Shine Brush that my hair belongs to.
That is....until tradgedy struck on a late Monday morning.
CAUTION: GRAPHIC IMAGE BELOW
2/3's way through a normal weekday blowout, my brush broke from it's handle.
At the moment, she's in another room healing from emergency super glue surgery, but during the break, a piece not shown in the photo above went missing. A crucial piece that could make or break her recovery process. Her chance of survival is 50/50, but even so, her quality of life is greatly diminished.
It is with a heavy heart that I go about town in search of her replacement. But it is something that needs to be done. Unfortunealy, Conair doesn't sell directly from their site and I have yet to find this particular model from a reputable online retailer but the search is on.
Hairbrush, you lived a valiant life and brought much joy to my follicles. Though your demise did not come during battle, I shall tell stories of your brave fight with my hair for generations to come.
Thank you for your service. Thank you for your time. Thank you for not breaking while I was overseas.
