Happy New Year! I hope the holidays treated everyone well. I spent some time with my family and nothing is better than that. Today I’m going to review a product my wonderful sister in law and brother got for me. They both know I’m into hair care and I’m a boarderline product junkie. So this was right up my alley. Lol. The first time I ever heard of this brush was when Whitney, also known as Naptural85 on YouTube reviewed it on her hair channel. You could watch it for yourself. I’ll leave links at the end of this post. It was pretty in depth and she had mixed feeling about the brush, as do I and I’m here to tell you why.
My brush is dedicated to thick hair. They also have two others for normal and fine hair. My brush in particular has 428 different bristles varing in heigts, thickness, and locations. No I didn’t count each individual bristle if you were wondering. Lol I’m not that crazy. The box gives you a nice description.
It claims to
– Smoothly massage the scalp while brushing
– Quickly detangle
– Pleasant brushing experience
– Reduced hair loss and breakage
(Advices to replace every 8-12 months for best results)
Before using this brush I made sure to detangle my hair like I always do before washing my hair. While using this detangling brush during my shampoo and conditioning process, I did notice that it was gliding through the knots I wasn’t able to get when I intially detangled my hair. I don’t think I would use this brush during my washing routine without first detangling my sections like I normally do. Just because I feel light it would pull out unessary hair. I also liked how it smoothed and clumped my curls together. The design of the brush is really sleek and slim down the handle. I didn’t have that much trouble controlling the brush in my hand. I did notice it was easier for me to hold it from the head of the brush though.
I took a picture of the amount of hair I lost using this while my hair was wet (left)
and how much I lost using it on dry hair (right). I do like using it more on damp hair than I do soaking wet.
I do have thick hair (4a & 4b for reference) but I know there are hair types out there thicker than mine.
I personally dont think that this would work as well on really thick coarse textures. This brush isn’t cheap as well.
Although I’m thankful for this gift. I probably wouldn’t have purchased it with my own money. You
might be able to try a cheaper alternative.
