I have a confession to make: I don't brush my hair on the daily. You might be thinking, how in the world do you not brush your hair every day? Isn't it a necessary step in your (at least) morning routine? Well, with my hair being wavy, using the average brush practically turns it into an afro (okay slightly exaggerating here, but hear me out). Instead, I've resorted to using wide tooth combs because they do not disturb my hair shape nearly as much. Seeing as my relationship with brushes has been quite distant, I thought it would be fun to step out of my comfort zone and try out and compare two very talked about, not your average hair detangling tools: The Wet Brush* and the Tangle Teezer*. If you're on the fence about which one to get, this one's for you!
The Wet Brush I find is easier to use on thicker hair. It resembles the average hair brush but is designed to be super gentle even on wet hair by removing big knots with ease. The bristles are more flexible and longer meaning it grabs the entire strand when sectioned off so I don't have to brush it through nearly as much as The Tangle Teezer. The tips are also rounded meaning it does not feel like it is scratching the scalp. I find it is more comfortable to grip since my hand does not get in the way. Since the bristles are distanced further apart, it does not stay stuck at a knot and is much easier to clean as well. I find it more pain free than the Tangle Teezer for this reason too. The Wet Brush also comes in a few colours like this Purple one, so that is always nice!
From my own experience, I find that taking your hair type into consideration is key when determining which brush to get. Fine, straight, knotty hair? The Tangle Teezer is for you. Thicker hair with dimension to it? Go for The Wet Brush.
You can get both of these hair tools online from Nail Polish Canada, both going for about $C15.00
