I originally wanted to try a Wet Brush because I didn't want to damage my hair by brushing it when it was wet, but I also didn't want to walk around with unbrushed hair. At first, I didn't love it because the bristles are a bit soft and I normally like to "feel" my brush going through my hair. However, the softer bristles are probably the reason you can use it on wet hair, so I decided to keep using it. Now, it's my favorite brush! I love that I can brush my hair when it's wet and not have to worry about doing so later. Yes, I could wait until my hair dries and then brush it, but in the meantime, I'd be walking around like a crazy person. . . and to be honest, once I walk out the house, I'm not going to remember to brush my hair, not to mention I just don't want to have to bring my brush with me everywhere! The BEST part is that my hair generally looks pretty amazing once it dries! Even better than when I used to use a normal brush on dry hair.
I find that it works best with my thick hair if I brush it from the bottom first to get out the tangles and then from the top to smooth it out, otherwise the soft bristles have a hard time going through all my hair.
I also love that this brush is affordable and relatively easy to find, so if I ever have to replace it, I can easily do so. As a bonus, they come in fun colors too!
