Wet Brush Review and Giveaway!



I have been trying the Wet Brush recently and have to say its brilliant. My Mum was a hairdresser and drummed it into me that brushing my hair whilst wet was a no!
However if I don't deal with the tangles then it dries in a real knotty mess. I mainly used a comb and have used the Tangle Teezer but with my broken finger and all the problems I have had since, its quite wieldy to grip and brush.



I have relatively normal hair, more thin than thick, the brush has been used as a total replacement, it has a handle that sets it apart from popular wet brush products, its paddle shaped. always good for long hair as mine is.



Another feature I noticed are the bristles, these are a good length to get through my hair. I imagine this would be a really good benefit for thicker hair.

As you know I care for my Granny, I wash her hair and I think its the one thing she dislikes the most, not me doing it as much as her not being able to. 

I make it as quick and unfussed as I can. I worry about the tangles and often rely on detangling sprays as I would hate to hurt her. I remember having my hair brushed as a child, it always hurt more when somebody else did it. I have used the Wet Brush the last few occasions and it just glides through her hair so well, knots untangle without too much pull, so much so I am buying another for her to have all the time.

I love this brush, I would thoroughly recommend for long hair, fine or thick. 

The Wet Brush is £6.95 and available from Sally stores nationwide and www.sallyexpress.com

I am happy to be offering The Wet Brush to a reader, as the company kindly offered another.

So just fill in the Rafflecopter below, please remember to comment a few people forget as they go through the options, done it myself in the excitement of being in with a chance.

  7. I have fairly thick hair and after it's washed it's absolute hell to try and get a brush through it, recently when I was a trying to brush it in the bathroom, the brush was tangled in my hair, so I gave it a yank (I know, I shouldn't, I get told off about it all the time!) and the brush flew out of my hand and into the toilet!

    hi i have always had very fine long blonde hair and years ago i had an accident and ended up in hospital bed ridden for three weeks you can imagine how horrible it was being stuck i bed and because i broke my elbows i couldnt do anything for myself and my hair started to look really messy and really needed a wash so the nurses decided to wash it for me. they dropped the headboard and placed a bowl on a table behind my head and gave my hair a good wash i was hoping to feel wonderful after they finished but they didnt know how hard my hair was to maintain
    and they ended up making what looked like a birds nest of my hair it was so matted and it took them over 2 hours to brush out the tangles they made
    i think they ended up wishing they never started and what was going to make me feel a bit better ended as a 2 hour nightmare with me having a sore head and lots of hair broken and ripped out i can look back on it a laugh now but at the time it made me very upset and stresses

    ReplyDelete
  93. I have learned to love my hair. It's fine, poker straight and I have a lot of it. It takes a while to dry so I tend to just blast it. I suppose that people spend ages straightening their hair whereas I used to always want a bit of a wave. I've come to terms with it and try not to fight too much against it, just making the most of what I've got.
