Long hair means tangles. Wet long hair equals disaster! I have flashbacks of my mam trying to get all of my hair into a pony tail in the mornings before school, my eyes still water at the thought.
As a grown up, and brusher of my own barnet, the Tangle Teezer has been my go to brush for a long time now, I’ve been through 4 or 5 of them in my life.
It’s basically a hollow plastic brush with different sized plastic bristles that you hold in the palm of your hand and it gets through the knots in your hair with, ease wet or dry. You can get them in different sizes, different colours and different textures, and are easy to avail of in Boots, other pharmacies, or Sally’s Salon Services.
So then onto a similar item that is much newer to me, The Wet Brush. I have heard alot about this brush online. I know America loves it, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us right?
You can see this looks more like a traditional brush. It’s light in your hand with plastic casing, bristles and handle. Like the Tangle Teezer, The Wet Brush comes in different shapes colours and sizes. For example you can buy a paddle version of the brush if you have a lot of unruly hair to get through. It glides through knotted hair painlessly and without too much effort. Adults and children alike will be happy about that 🙂
I like both of these brushes. They both do their job and do it well. I think the buying decision comes down to preference. I feel like I am cheating on my beloved Tangle Teezer ( I kind of am). But for me, I think The Wet Brush comes out on top. I am old fashioned and I like the way it has a handle first and foremost, it just feels more comfortable in your hand. I have alot of hair and I shed like a dog…attractive I know, I get alot of fall out. But I did notice after using both brushes for a good period of time when comparing them, there was less hair left over in The Wet Brush than in the Tangle Teezer. This makes The Wet Brush the winner in my books!
The PR company never got back to me with a list of stockists, but people on our Facebook page have told me you can get it in Terrisales and I know it is in Sally’s too. Keep an eye out though, it won’t be long until it is stocked everywhere.
