oh, how i love the SPRUSH by Templeclean. i am a cosmetologist and have found i much prefer the sprush to the standard brush for a plethora of reasons. because it neatly presses color onto the hair, it saves on product signifigantly which in my business is money. it allows for more control of product than the bristle brushes. it cleans up with more ease than a bristle brush. it lasts infinatley longer than a bristle brush because it has no bristles to fray and bend every which way. i purchased the entire kit (15 sprushes, i believe) for about 70 bucks from the templeclean web site directly and, i must say, bill over there is a dream seller. i recieved a few free sprushs for ordering a complete kit (i passed one on to a fellow cosmetologist and got her hooked!) and when i had an issue with one of the sprushs (i was accidentally sent a "test" sprush that wasn't meant to leave the offfice. it broke on me.) i called templeclean, left a message and bill, the owner, got right back to me. i explained my problem and he was wonderfully courtious and professional. i was sent a few additional sprushes for free and have been spreading the good word about the sprush since. while they may initially cost a bit more than brushes, you will save a lot in product and because you won't need t0 be replacing them frequently. i firmly believe that the sprush will one day be the industry standard and those old bristle brushes will fall by the wayside.
