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! ...read more

I was super skeptical when I received this after having bought it because it was a lot smaller than I had expected it to be (fits in the palm of your hand, more or less). I have A LOT of hair; long, thick, crazy when it's not ironed. It is by no means easy to tangle every time I wash it, but this makes my life a million times easier. Like seriously, where was this when I was a child and never wanted to comb my hair so my mom would simply chop it all off? This is perfect for kids with that problem, or anyone of any age for that matter. This makes detangling my hair so easy, and so much quicker since I don't have to worry about it tugging when it reaches a knot. There is literally zero pain. It's almost magical how effortlessly it detangles all my hair in a matter of less than 5 minutes. Totally recommend this. ...read more

My favorite brush! I own two of these brushes. They are perfect for women who have naturally tangled hair or hair that is hard to comb through. My hair has always been a pain and gets knotted easily making it nearly impossible for brushes to comb through without damaging my hair but this brush is my miracle worker. It doesn't damage my hair and easily guides through my dry or even wet hair! I love this brush and have recommended this to many of my friends and family and everybody else I've introduced the wet brush too has had the same amazing results ...read more

I had heard good things about this brush. Every time I saw them in the stores though I kept thinking, no way. My hair gets into the WORST tangles. There is not a way ever it would work on my hair. I was staying with a friend one night and took a shower and she let me borrow the brush. She had one and said she uses it and that brush only. I tried it and instantly fell in love. It was seriously the ultimate test. I was able to get through the knots and tangles of my freshly washed hair which is the worst for me typically. I have noticed that by using that brush as well my hair is less frizzy and not as many fly away. Not sure how that has an effect that way but I am OBSESSED! ...read more

This is seriously the most amazing brush EVER! It literally goes right through your hair ( I have very long and thick hair which gets very tangled ) Seriously none of your hair gets ripped out and it doesn't damage your hair if you brush it when it's wet. It's very similar to the wet brush but cheaper! ...read more

I have really long, thick hair and it is a nightmare to detangle after a wash. This hair brush though is wonderful! First of all it is super light and it detangles my hair after just a few strokes! I love the shape of it as it brushes out a big chunk of hair at a time and the fact that it is a wide toothed brush as it is a lot healthier for your hair. Also, I love the fact that it is recyclable product. Therefore, I highly recommend this hair brush. ...read more

I remember using this in a blue colour in my middle school days and loving it. it would detangle my hair without pulling it off my scalp. I have very long hair that gets extremely naughty easily. the cushion was for sure my favorite. it was very fun to squish around and put the indent of my hand in. I would recommend this for tweens. makes them feel independent and it is a breeze to use even fun. ...read more
