No More Tears: The Wet Brush One Step Hair Detangler

Disclosure: I participated in this event on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers for The Wet Brush. I received Wet Brush products to facilitate my review. Regardless, all opinions stated are 100% the reviewers.

Some of the best moments I get to experience having daughters happens when we play. From tea time to dress up, it’s one-on-one time that proves to be great for bonding. We even do each others’ hair during dress up, well usually Em just makes mine knotty, but she is getting better with her brushing technique.

Allowing me to style Em’s hair has not always been an easy feat. Not wanting her to hate the experience, for a while I just left her hair alone and let it flop into her face. Then the moment I waited for came when she asked for me to do her hair. I grabbed my brush, she insisted on using mine, and had a blast creating the palm tree look at the top of her head.

I’ve used paddle-style brushes since I was a teen. I was introduced to them one year while away at summer camp. I had forgotten to pack my brush (and towel) and the camp director bought me a brush that I will never forget. I remember it like it was just yesterday, even though it happened over 25 years ago. The brush was, what I now know to be called, a paddle brush. It was big, it was purple and it said BIG PURPLE BRUSH on the back, yeah, no kidding.

My hair and my daughters’ hair is fairly easy to deal with. So when I was given the opportunity to test out a brush called the Wet Brush, I wanted to put it to a real test. The makers of The Wet Brush claim it to be the only brush a person will ever need. I don’t know about you, but we own like five different types of hair combs/brushes. I decided to ask my friend Ro if she and her daughter, Eden, would be interested in reviewing the Mommy & Me set. I had barely started to describe The Wet Brush to her before she excitedly said yes. In fact she said yes so fast she left her own hairbrush in my car, totally not kidding, I found it in the side door pocket.

The Wet Brush is designed to be used on wet hair. It is known for its “IntelliFlex bristles” and its main purpose is to de-tangle hair without the fuss or pain that doing so usually brings. A product that makes hair brushing a fun and enjoyable experience, especially for the little ones, and makes life just a drop easier for mom, is one that I want to know about.

But what fun would it be to use a product in its actual specified manner? Don’t worry, they tested it the proper way too. The Wet Brush not only worked on coarse wet hair, but on dry, post braided hair too! What used to be at least a two-step process for Ro and Eden, is now a quick time-saving one action job. Check out The Wet Brush in action for yourself in the video below.

The Wet Brush surprised Ro, and out performed all the other brushes and combs in a way she did not imagine. Eden enjoyed her new brushes, and especially likes having a set just like mom. Eden “let” mom keep the purple colored Wet Brushes and chose the blue Wet Brushes for herself. The bonus, when Eden is ready to start brushing her own hair, she’ll always know which one is hers.

The soft, yet sturdy, bristles of the Wet Brush slide through hair with ease, making brushing a positive experience, especially after the shower. No more tangles and no more fuss, what more could a mom ask for? Its great not just after a shower but anytime your hair is wet! Summer is here and with it comes trips to the beach or pool and even water parks. Grab the pop brush, small enough to carry in your bag or pocket, to achieve the sleek wet look, while hanging at the beach or pool.

The Wet Brush is available in a multitude of colors and patterns. It also comes in a range of sizes and shapes. It’s not just for Moms and daughters, they have a men’s version, as well as a Wet Brush for babies. The Wet Brush is great on all types of hair, straight, curly, thin, thick and coarse hair too. Put down those combs, detangling sprays and step into the ease of the Wet Brush.

  • My hair nightmare was a long time ago. Because we had to keep our hair pulled back and off the collar, I used lots of hair spray. I ran out of hairspray one day and had to use a different brand than I normally used. A few days later while getting prepared for a meeting I noticed white specks all in my hair. How embarrassing! It took several days to get that dried hairspray out of my hair!!

  • My worst hair nightmare occurred when I was trying to curl my hair with a curling iron. Somehow,
    my hair got knotted around the curling iron, and, despite my best efforts, I could not get it out of my hair.
    A friend came over to try to help, and she couldn’t do it either. I actually had to cut off a chunk of my hair
    in order to remove the curling iron! The next step, of course, was to schedule an emergency appointment
    at my hair salon, so my hair stylist could try to disguise the damage done!

  • My daughter has waist length, very long, very thick hair. She is very active in sports. She has come home from tournaments with eye black, bubble gum, food, clay, resin, and hair coloring mashed in her hair causing (especially near her skull) big fat knots. I have tried to braid her hair to keep it in place but she plays so hard and she doesn’t want anyone doing anything to her hair. I have had to use baby oil, olive oil, Dawn dish soap and gallons of shampoo and conditioner to get the stuff out.

  • I love that it doesn’t pull on the little girls hair, I know when buying a brush I look really hard, I know the pain because my step mother use to brush my hair hard or just rip out tangles, so I try to be as gentle as i can with the little ones hair, and these brushes are amazing, really hoping to have that opportunity to try them on my grandchrildren.. thanks

  • I think my worst hair nightmare was when I was a little girl. You know those rope swings that spin in circles and if your hair gets caught it is the worst? Yeah, well I was knew at it and didn’t put my hair in a ponytail. An hour or so later, a couple inches of hair, a pair of scissors and lots of pain later I was free. It was awful!

  • My hair tangles very easily. It is so bad, one time the brush got caught in it and had to be cut out.

  • This has happened twice….I fell asleep with my hair wet which doesnt seem that bad but it is if you have hair down to your butt and move a lot while sleeping. I woke up with the BIGGEST rats nest I have ever seen!!! I put globs and globs of conditioner in to try and get the knots out. I basically had to rip through my hair because the knots just wouldnt go away. Now I make sure that I braid my hair WAY before I get/feel tired lol

  • Just this weekend after being out on the boat my best friend had her long hair with a big ol’ knot right on the crown of her head! I ended up picking it apart with the tong of a hair clip.

  • My worst nightmare is trying to untangle my hair without putting hair conditioner. Its a struggle since my hair is thick and i have a lot too. Therefore i need a brush that will help the untangling easier and not make it a nightmare

  • My worst hair story was probably when I was a teen and tried a new hair style. I usually went with the wash and go type, but I wanted to be more trendy, and the Jennifer Anniston look was in. I was trying to blow dry my long hair using a round brush, but I didn’t really know how. I just wound the whole length of hair around the brush and tried to pull it through! Of course it got stuck, and I couldn’t unwind it, and it took my mom almost an hour to untangle it from my head! I was really scared I would have to cut my hair off at the scalp!

  • When I was around 10 my sister and I were doing our mom’s hair. We got a round brush so stuck in her hair that she couldn’t get it out. We ended up driving to our grandma’s house so grandpa could get it out.

  • Years ago I had a perm on top of a color job. I had straw hair that just wouldn’t comb out. I had to go get some different conditioners and even then I had a bad time for a long time!! I really fried my head!

  • I have really tick waist-length hair that just seems to tie itself into knots without my even moving. I wear it pulled back a lot & I get terrible snarls at the nape of my neck. 🙁

  • One time I got a round styling brush stuck in my hair. It was horrifying. It took patience and about twenty minutes, but I finally got it out without losing too much hair.

  • When my oldest daughter was little she’d scream if I even got the hairbrush out. Finally when she was 5 I just cut her beautiful hair off to save us both from the struggle. She never protested brushing her hair again!

  • Gum stuck in the hair is the worst, right up there with lollipops or Jolly Ranchers.

  • When i was younger about 8 or so.. I had a handful of burr berries thrown in my hair by some not so nice kids… (my hair was waist length). My mom ended up having to chop my hair into a pixie cut… since then I never have had short hair

  • One of my hairbrushing nightmares was when I woke up looking like medusa, one day. . I normally pin my hair up in a pony tail so that when I sleep, it’s not in my face and my hair isn’t as tangled. I don’t know what I did during the night, but when I woke up and looked in the mirror, I was one giant knot. I took me quite a while to get out all the tangles. I must have had some heavy duty dreams to get in that situation.
