THE BEST HAIRBRUSH YOU WILL EVER USE!
Right, so I don’t know about you, but I HATE brushing my hair. In fact I try and brush it as little as possible and tend to only do so before and after a shower and then on the odd occasion before styling. But no matter how thick or thin, long or short, curly or straight your hair is, that dreaded pain that comes with detangling is all the same. After much research and about 10 previous hairbrush fails, I’ve finally found myself the perfect hairbrush and couldn’t wait to share it with you guys too!
DISCOVERING THE BEST HAIRBRUSH EVER
So, I actually came across the Wet Brush during my monthly trip to Boots to stock up on all my trusted favourite toiletries. I was actually after some bobby pins (as, soon after having my little girl, I noticed a sudden surge of flyaways when tying up my hair that stuck out like I had been electrocuted. Can any of you mamas relate?). But then this beautiful marble designed hairbrush instantly caught my eye.
As I was already using the Tangleteezer, which at the time I believed was the leading hairbrush at the time, I was initially sceptical that anything could match or even beat the famous hairbrush used at almost every salon around. So as usual I began my research process, right there in the middle of Boots with my 1 year old strapped onto me in her baby carrier, on what really should have been a 10 minute shopping trip (but ended stretching to an hour!)
The first thing I read? ‘The hairbrush that promises pain free detangling for wet or dry hair’. Not yet convinced, as the Tangleteezer promises the same (despite feeling extremely scratchy and somewhat uncomfortable against my scalp), I carried on reading.
I then came across a few magazine articles that raved about this hairbrush and went into detail about what sets it apart from any other brush, thereby making the daunting task of detangling, well, bearable. I was pretty impressed with the thousands of raving reviews that backed this hairbrush and was curious to try it out to see if the hype really was justified.
Friends. The hype was totally justified. I am completely and utterly obsessed with this hairbrush!
What Makes This Hairbrush So Special
The real magic of this hairbrush resides in its ‘IntelliFlex’ ultra-soft and super thin bristles, which minimises pain from pulling and tugging that consequently causes split ends and breakage. The tiny beads that sit at the end of each of these bristles prevent scalp irritation (which explains the scratchy feeling I’d often get with the Tangleteezer).
I absolutely love how feather light this hairbrush is too especially compared to other hairbrushes (strange point to note I know, but this hairbrush is just SO lightweight!). I could (and have) carry the full size original detangling brush in my handbag and wouldn’t even know it’s in there!
I also love that it has a handle, which makes the whole process of detangling/hairbrushing much easier and less of a faff and sets it apart from the compact Tangleteezer which I found often slid right out of my hands during post shower detangling.
What’s more exciting is that the Wet Brush comes in an array of different colours and designs too.
I picked up the marble design (because who doesn’t love a bit of marble), which looks so lush on my vanity.
Given all of the positivity surrounding this fabulous hairbrush, you’d think it’d come with a somewhat hefty/high-end price tag.
Nope! The Wet Brush is super affordable and such incredible value for money too, retailing at only £11.99!
From the thousands of raving reviews backing this hairbrush, many have said that it has changed their life and is a complete game changer.
Having previously used the ever popular Tangleteezer, I much prefer the Wet Brush especially when it comes to detangling post shower. I found that with the Tangleteezer, I was running the brush through my hair quite a few times to fully rid my hair of knots. Whereas the Wet Brush took half the number of brush strokes and was virtually pain free.
I honestly cannot recommend this hairbrush enough and cannot stress just HOW much you, your kids, your friends and family NEED this hairbrush in your lives.
I hope you love it as much as I do! Let me know your thoughts on the Wet Brush or Tangleteezer in the comments below.
Tip: Always start by brushing and detangling your hair at the tips and then gradually work your way up to the roots for minimal pain and breakage.
