DD, 6, curly ringlets. This is the best thing ever!! I have used tangle teasers and tangle tamers, they don't work. I had resorted to using a comb and combing from the ends. It took 20 mins. I used the wet brush tonight for the 2nd time. 2 mins, it just brushes right through. It is bloody amazing!!

pls can you link sounds good!

Imscarlet Fri 14-Apr-17 22:03:06

I picked mine up in a chemist

*MNHQ UPDATE* Folks, it looks like this link above might be to a fake, Imscarlet just grabbed it quickly, however reading further down the thread it looks like this one is kosher. Cheers, HelenMNHQ

Just look up Wet Brush on Amazon I have (a giraffe print) one for my vault tatty hair and DD has (a purple) one for her thick tatty hair. I agree they are pretty good.

How is it different to any other paddle brush? Other than it's price tag?

Imscarlet Fri 14-Apr-17 22:32:23

It doesn't hurt - ie no screaming like a tortured banshee and goes through the knots in no time. DD won't let a paddle brush anywhere near her!

But what does it to differently to other paddle brushes and tangle teezers? What makes it go through the mats and knots differently?

Looking for hope!

I just got one this week, it's great.

kingscrossnoodle Fri 14-Apr-17 23:09:58

Yes that's what I meant, how is it different? In what way? What makes it work differently to every other brush it looks like?

My youngest has nightmare hair and I have tried so many brushes, but looking at this I really don't see anything that would make me choose it

Had one for about a year and I will never go back to tangle teaser. They are SO GOOD, barely any breakage. They don't look like they would be much different to a normal brush when you look at it but it's something about the softness of the bristles that makes it really something else. If you're thinking about it just do it!

They're brilliant! Like a pp said, the bristles are much softer than a tangle teaser but they really do go through tangles.

Voice0fReason Fri 14-Apr-17 23:45:05

They are brilliant - they are just so soft to use, they never seem to pul or hurt.

Aww thanks, just ordered! I have a dad with crazy red curly hair. Praying it helps us

I know it's called the "wet" brush. Does anyone know if it is good for getting tangles, knots out of dry hair? Thanks.

fluffiphlox Sat 15-Apr-17 13:40:35

A dad?

EnidButton Sat 15-Apr-17 14:21:02

I wouldn't ever brush curly hair. Always a very wide toothed comb. Brushes break up the curl which is why it goes wild and frizzy.

AliceKlar Sat 15-Apr-17 15:14:11

Do you think they'd work for very fine/thin hair that knots and tangles terribly? DD has a tangle teaser but it sounds like it's ripping her hair apart when she brushes it.. She has major split ends.

agrumpymum Sat 15-Apr-17 15:24:15

Alice DD has long, fine hair with a natural curl. It gets so tangled but the brush definitely gets it tangled free.

Yes, it's good for dry hair.

Babyiwantabump Sat 15-Apr-17 16:26:58

I have one - agree it is amazing!

LogonMounstuart Sat 15-Apr-17 18:11:02

Good on dry and fine hair but you can't use it with a hairdryer as it ruins the lovely soft bristles

Brighteyes27 Sat 15-Apr-17 19:44:57

It's great in the shower for combing through conditioner on any type of hair. It's also great on dry tangley hair adults or child's. The brushes are different lengths unless your DC are very young buy the larger size brushes especially if you or your DH are sometimes intending brushing there hair as well sometimes.

olderthanyouthink Sat 15-Apr-17 21:11:13

Loads of conditioner, fingers then comb. Best thing for curls.

AliceKlar Sat 15-Apr-17 22:02:42

Thanks for this I'm going to get one for DD
