I just acquired through trade a Vie-Long 13061. I've really enjoyed getting to know it over the last week. I'm amazed how quickly it loads soap and the lather it creates is top notch. It's pricklier than I would like, but maybe it will soften up with time. Anyway, I'm concerned about it because the breach of the brush seems to get matted down and knotted up quite a bit. I've tried combing it out, but sometimes the hair breaks. Besides, I don't want to have to do this every day. Does anyone else have this problem?
