Used Mixed Chicks brush again, didn't want to feel like I wasted money and it'll just lay there unused, and starting to really like it. HS is still my favorite of all, but MC is pretty good too, just different, wide spaced pins, bigger balls on tips. And true to reviews really easy and fast to detangle with it, makes hair very smooth, while other brushes add volume for some reason. Probably has to do with wider spaced pins. Chunky handle is still annoying, but I find that it's possible to use just holding the brush at the base and by the back, bypassing the handle.

So this one I recommend too. It's very strong, I think people with very thick, and/or long, tangly hair who find most brushes flimsy would love this one, it seems to be up to any challenge.
