The Wet Brush

I went for years using my one trusty Denman hairbrush, I had it right through my teens, through University and even a move to London, then one day it vanished never to be seen again and I was devastated, even more so when I learnt that particular brush was no longer made. Since that fateful day, I have tried so many hairbrushes and have liked them all - AirMotion Pro, various sized Tangle Teezers, the Denman Tangle Tamer and now I have the much raved about The Wet Brush. Some people have referred to this brush as being their holy grail hairbrush and others haven't rated it at all.  

My hair is shoulder length and fine but there is lots of it (something you will have heard me mention), I don't tend to have any issues when it comes to knots and tangles, but frizz really does seem to be an issue, but that is just how my hair is unless I use copious numbers of products on it.

So when the Wet Brush** landed through my letterbox, I was quite keen to see what all the fuss was about having read quite a few reviews.  Designed specifically for wet hair to help with knotty and tangled hair without stretching or snapping it.

When I first looked at this brush I wasn't to sure what all the fuss was about, it looks no different to similar brushes I have owned, but it is anything but. The Wet Brush features thin, strong and flexible Intelliflex Bristles which are designed to glide through any type of hair. The SoftTips, or white bits on the bristles, massage the scalp as you brush which helps to stimulate the circulation of hair follicles.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been told never to over brush my hair when it is wet and if I do, use a wide toothed comb, so using a brush felt very wrong to begin with. Firstly the bristles are really flexible and are designed so that they eliminate the dragging, pulling, tearing and ripping feeling when you do brush wet hair, infact the brush is so brilliant, it glides through my hair as easily as any wide toothed comb ever has and my hair feels so soft and smooth once it has started to dry, that I don't dread the thought of having to drag a brush through my hair to style it.  Since using the brush ive seen no sign of slit ends or extra hair loss.

The Wet Brush s also so versatile that it can also be used on dry hair, wigs and extensions. The handle, of which mine is decorated with smiley happy faces, is made from a rubberised coating so it sits securely in your hand whilst brushing so it doesn't slip out of your hand.

This is a fantastic hairbrush and if you have children who hate having their hair brushed, as I did when I was a child, then it is worthy of spending £11.99 more so if you have thick knotty hair too!

Have you tried the Wet Brush?

  3. This is a brilliant brand. I had a Denman brush when I was a teenager. I could do with a wet brush for my long hair. Thanks for the review!

  4. Nice review. I have been procrastinating about buying this brush for too long now. Seen so many great comments about it, I think now might be a good time to add it to my shopping list.

  8. I think I'll definitely be buying one of these! My daughter has the finest hair which causes absolute meltdowns, even the tangle teasers we have don't seem to pacify. Fingers crossed this is the solution!
