I have been naturally blessed with thick, healthy hair. So much so that I am the kind of girl that suffers with snapped hair bands, broken claw grips, you name it. Most horrific is that painful feeling in your follicles when your hair has been up all day then you take it down and massage your head :(((.
The Tangle Teaser (mine is purple and glittery and awesome) has been a firm resident of my top drawer for about a year – my first choice when it comes to sorting out my tangly mane of hair. It is perfect for travel, it’s small and works great for keeping hair smooth and knot free! However, I had heard that there was something called a Wet Brush that is even better than a Tangle Teaser and I knew I’d have to try it out!
Brushing wet hair is a dangerous game – unless you use a bloody good conditioner you will have tangly hair that needs to be sorted! I usually use my Tangle Teaser to work through the ends of my hair first so that I don’t pull and the hair doesn’t break. Then I can brush it right through without having to worry!
I felt like a bit of a traitor reaching for the Wet Brush over the Tangle Teaser, but hey needs must. So what I like about the Wet Brush is the bristles – at first when I heard someone say Wet Brush I thought it was a crazy hairbrush with like towel bits in it! The bristles on the Wet Brush are thin, bendy and get through hair pretty easy :). I wouldn’t brush right from the top of my head with a wet brush just because I’d worry about breakage, but it does just as good a job as the Tangle Teaser. I think the main benefit of the Wet Brush is that it doesn’t make you molt as much so it might be a bit less tough on your hair!
I’m trying to be more gentle with mine and taking skin/nail/hair supplements as around my temples my hair has started to feel a bit weaker and I don’t want to tug any out by accident!
I think the Wet Brush is definitely a worthwhile investment – the smooth finish of the brush handle is also very satisfying – it looks like the kind of brush you would take if you went swimming!
