Brushing hair is a rubbish job isn’t it? Right up there with taking your make up off and removing nail varnish. Specifically, I mean brushing wet hair. Just washed. Ugh. Knot central.
Maybe I have more knots than the average bear, on account of my long-ish, fine, not-so-natural blonde locks. Though describing them as locks might be a stretch. Nothing glossy happening here. Heat damage, sure. Shiny tresses, non.
If you are in the same follicular boat, then you’ve probably discovered the Tangle Teezer. What a game changer. My favourite is the Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash, £9, the in-shower version which can live in-shower quite happily without going mouldy. I went on holiday and forgot to take it, and was most upset. Knotty nightmares.
Which is how I came to be in the market for an alternative. When travelling, I pack the Tangle Teezer plus another brush for styling. (I say styling in the very loosest sense of the word, if drying your hair upside down and brushing it can be considered styling.) Not conducive to a hand luggage situation.
The Wet Brush, £11.99, is essentially a Tangle Teezer with a handle. But without plastic bristles, just normal hairbrush ones. In fact it looks just like a regular hairbrush, but the cushion isn’t flexible, you can’t push it in, nor does it fill with water. So you can use it wet or dry. Boom. Wet Brush for the win.
If mine even is a genuine Wet Brush. I bought my leopard print one from Amazon (here) so who knows. I do know that it makes brushing out knots très easy, so I am très happy either way.
Til next time,
