The World’s Best Detangling Brush: The Wet Brush {Review}

Wet Brush logo
As summer comes to an end, I am already reminiscent over the things I'm going to miss (e.g. not having to rush anyone to eat breakfast in a hurry or being able to make a day out of playing in the yard with the hose) while also being equally relieved over those that I won't (e.g. chauffeuring nonstop from one activity to the next or listening to annoying sibling squabbles).

At the same time, there are activities and events that manage to fall into both categories.

For instance, I've loved my kids' swim lessons at our city's outdoor pool due to how much they are learning and that I get to relax in a lawn chair and chat with my own friends while they happen... but I haven't loved the massive amounts of whining and complaining that I've had to listen to when I attempt to brush my girls' wet hair after their post-lesson shower.

Yes, I know it hurts. No, I'm not doing it on purpose. No, I'm not done. Yes, we have to do this every day. And so on, etcetera.

Fortunately, I've now been introduced to a product that has essentially eliminated the pain and hassle of removing stubborn knots and tangles. Sound like an impossibility? I thought so until we tried out The Wet Brush.

The Wet Brush

Created with one-of-a-kind, ultra thin, Intelli-flex bristles, The Wet Brush enables effortless and pain-free detangling without damaging or breaking the hair. No matter if you are battling tangles in hair that is wet or dry; curly or straight; thick or fine, this wonder tool can make brushing fast and easy.

Knowing that this miracle brush would be a lifesaver in reducing arguments and crying every morning before school this fall, I was more than ready to put it to the test.

The Wet Brush review

The Wet Brush, available in the Classic size (which I received) and the Squirt (a smaller version), are offered in a vast array of colors and patterns to match every personality. Simply choose your favorite and the long bristles allow for more elasticity when brushing, making it easier to comb through knots and more comfortable than comparable brushes with smaller bristles.

As well as longer bristles shortening the detangling process, the Polytip ball on the end of each bristle cushions the contact with the scalp, ensuring smooth and gentle massage actions that stimulate circulation at the follicle which is a proven benefit for overall hair.

However, while I appreciated the long, flexible bristles and the comfortable, ergonomically designed handle, what I really wanted to know is what anyone would want to know when considering The Wet Brush: does it really make brushing pain-free?

The answer is YES!

Little Sister B has shorter, thicker hair that isn't as tangle-prone as her sister, but still manages to end up quite a coarse, knotted mess.

But having her whine and pull her head away from me is a thing of the past now that she can use The Wet Brush on herself and painlessly brush out all of the knots!

As for Big Sister E, her hair is nearly always in a permanent state of tangles (no matter how much conditioner is used) and I usually have to talk myself up to prepare for the amount of complaining that she does when I reach for a brush. Even though she did not inherit my curls, her thick, straight hair requires a large amount of tackling to make it not resemble the early stages of dreadlocks and she seems insistent on not letting me forget it.

In short, brushing her hair has always been a task that I dread.

But no longer!

From the first time that we tested out The Wet Brush, Big Sister E seemed just as amazed as I was, as she repeated It doesn't hurt! It really doesn't hurt! multiple times.

In fact, this brush has nearly eliminated all of the issues that we used to have with detangling both girls' hair... and, due to how much they like (and vocalize) the painlessness of it, other friends of ours have already purchased one and brought it to swim lessons as well!

Wet Brush review

After using The Wet Brush for a few weeks on wet and dry hair, I can truly attest that it is superior to any other brush that we have tried before. No wonder this is the number one selling and fastest growing hairbrush across the nation and millions of satisfied customers are raving that they have found an easier way to untangle and manage their hair!

Available in nearly every color and pattern that you can imagine for $8.99 (in stores, on their website and on Amazon), The Wet Brush is perfect for the whole family and works on ALL hair types, including both wet or dry hair, extensions and even wigs. Whether you’ve got thick, luscious curls or stick straight, smooth locks, this brush can help you say goodbye to chaos and pulling at knots and hello to beautiful, untangled hair.

It looks like a normal brush! That's great that it works so well. Abby has a LOT of hair and it gets very tangled. We have a brush that works well enough, but I may have to check this one out.

This brush sounds geat! I can remember when I was a kiddo, my Mom would spray No More Tangles into my hair. I probably sound like I am 90, saying that. I don't even know if they make it any more.

This looks like such a great brush! My girls' hair gets so tangled when it is wet and they hate it when I have to brush it.

This might be the perfect solution to my girls crazy hair. She just turned two, and I've never cut her hair because she's got the most beautiful ringlets in the back. But they're the biggest pain in the a** to brush....

I realized that my friend's granddaughter has long hair that's hard to work with. Have to tell her about this brush.
