Our Story – Manta

For years I watched people spend money on haircuts, salon colours, luxury shampoos and conditioners and then drag a rigid brush through their hair. Daily brushing actually causes a lot of irreversible damage to hair. I wanted to focus on creating a brush that would be as gentle on your hair as running your fingers through it. The MANTA is the answer for anyone who wants to keep their hair condition as healthy as possible.

Created With

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.

Manta is proud to support The Little Princess Trust, a charity supplying real hair wigs free of charge to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Started in 2006, the charity helps those with cancer – up to the age of 24 – with as many wigs as necessary for the duration of their treatment and hair loss. Since its inception, the Trust has given away over 6000 wigs and has awarded research grants of over £1,700,000.
