I prefer to brush before combing because this allows the comb to go through more smoothly and combing goes much faster. I also like to brush after I am done combing to distribute the natural oils and sort of stimulate the scalp. For Mia, I find the brass fusion brush accomplishes both of these goals very well. The ice slip brush does not work as well on Mia because her hair is very fine and the brush sort of slides over her. She also seems to prefer the brass fusion brush. However, Karen and some others love the ice slip brush. It could be that Mia’s coat is not as Havanese-ish because she is half papillon. I love the sheen the brass fusion brush gives to her fur and Mia seems to enjoy being brushed with it. And Mia used to run when a got near her with a brush.
