The Best Brush for Tangled Hair

If your spirit animal is basically Anne Hathaway in Princess Diaries when she breaks a brush, this post is for you.

I feel like I can comfortably say most people struggle at one point or another with knots. I remember hearing about two brushes in particular for years: The Wet Brush and Tangle Teezer.

Both look ordinary, and totally warrant the original reaction of “how could they be exponentially better than any other brush out there?”

Earlier in 2015, my mom and I decided to test them out because she normally has a really hard time with knots post shower. Since then, the Wet Brush is the only thing she’ll use and here’s why:

Wet Brush

  • Pros:
    • Combs through knots in WET hair without yanking/hurting
    • Combs through knots in DRY hair without yanking/hurting
    • Easy to find (sold online and in stores)
    • Worked for my mom’s naturally thin hair
    • Worked for my naturally very thick hair
    • Detangles easily even when you don’t use conditioner
  • Cons:
    • N/A (seriously)

Tangle Teezer

  • Pros:
    • Easy to find (sold online and in stores)
    • Super compact
  • Cons:
    • DID NOT comb through knots in WET hair without yanking/hurting (hurt just as much as any other normal brush)
    • DID NOT comb through knots in DRY hair without yanking/hurting (same as above)
    • DID NOT work well for my mom’s naturally thin hair
    • DID NOT work well for my naturally very thick hair (only seemed to brush through the very top layer of my hair and the rest was still left tangled and unbrushed)

In the time my mom has been exclusively using the Wet Brush many people have borrowed or used it (on group vacations, etc) and they’ve been amazed at how well it works. We’ve yet to come across a hair type where it’s been problematic. It’s especially been a winner amongst younger girls who hate brushing their hair more than anything because it hurts (used to be the bane of my 6-year-old self’s existence).

The Tangle Teezer didn’t work out for either of us even though we have different hair types, but a ton of people still love it so I’d say it’s worth giving it a shot because it may work for you!

With love,

Esra
