I've had 2 brushes that I received as gifts about 15 yrs ago. I need to get a new one and want to get one that performs well for me. The one with the brown handle is my favorite. It's soft and holds just the right amount of water. Does this look like a silvertip? The one with the white handle I don't like as much. It's firmer and retains a lot of water. Can anybody tell by the pics what kind of hair these two are? I want to get one similar to the brown handle brush but not spend for a silvertip unnecessarily. Thanks.
