As a child, having my hair combed was something I positively dreaded.
For whatever reason, my hair knotted incredibly easily. Combine that with frequent swims in our chlorine pool, and you are left with something that resembles a tumbleweed.
Once I got to the age in which I could comb my own hair, I found the process to be even more irritating. When my mom would comb my hair, she was very careful to avoid yanking or pulling on my locks. I’m not as patient, however, and I couldn’t tell you the number of times I either yanked hair out of my head or simply walked away and let the knots worsen.
Keeping this in mind, you can likely imagine how happy I was when my mom brought me home a Wet Brush one day after doing errands in town. I was confused by the concept, considering we typically hear that brushing wet or damp hair is very damaging to the strands.
This isn’t the case with the Wet Brush, though, and I’ve been using it every day since.
I’m not really sure of the engineering that went into this masterpiece, but someone knew what they were doing. This brush beats out any comb I have ever used, and what’s even better is that it can be used on both wet and dry hair.
I like to comb my hair as soon as I’m out of the shower, and a few passes of the Wet Brush through my hair gets rid of knots painlessly and easily. Everyone in my family uses one, and I’ve even gotten my boyfriend to use one since he, too, has long hair.
You can order a Wet Brush from its website, but I have actually seen them at Winners. They can be tricky to locate, but if you ever see one, jump on that puppy. It might be the best purchase of your life.
