what is a wet brush

Brushing our hair ought to be something more of a pleasure than something we have to battle through reluctantly, sometimes dreading, especially when it comes to brushing our children’s hair. Hair becomes entangled and knotted easily, this is just a fact of life.

Sleeping tangles your hair, washing tangles your hair, styling or putting it in a bun tangles it, tangling is a fact of hair, we all know it. Brushing through tangled hair is frankly a nightmare, well at least it used to be as far as I was concerned, all that hacking and tugging and frustration as we try to simply brush our hair.

And when it comes to brushing our children’s hair it is even worse, for them and you, all that wailing and writhing, all those tears and dramas and falling outs that can spoil  yours and their day before it has hardly begun.

Sound familiar? Well this is where the Wet Brush comes in to save the day. The Wet Brush is amazingly good at seeming to glide effortlessly through tangled hair, with hardly any fuss at all.

It really works, and I am not saying that it can manage severely knot-bound hair, the like of which Houdini himself would struggle to unravel. But that ordinary hair-tangles seem to just disappear like they were never there in the first place. My daughter now looks forward to hair-brushing time and so do I.

What is a Wet Brush?

A Wet Brush, is an inexpensive plastic hairbrush. So why all the fuss? Well, put simply it is pretty much a modern day miracle in the lives of those of us who might have struggled for years whilst trying to brush through tangled and knotty hair, not just our own hair, but also and often more importantly our children’s hair too.

Why is it called Wet Brush

So, why Wet Brush? I mean to say, why is it called Wet Brush? Well, the Wet Brush is designed especially, though not exclusively, for brushing through wet or damp hair.

Brushing is quite a vigorous activity for our hair to endure on a daily basis and our hair is at its most vulnerable when it is wet or damp. In fact it is generally considered best, not to ever brush your hair while it is wet but rather to just comb it, to minimise the damage brushing can cause.

Here again the Wet Brush steps in to save the day as it really is designed for brushing wet or damp hair.

How does a Wet Brush work?

If a Wet Brush is so good at brushing through tangled, knotted hair and at the same time also designed for brushing wet or damp hair without causing damage, then what is going on with it?

It looks like a pretty typical plastic hairbrush you find in any accessories shop and it doesn’t cost the earth, in fact it is as cheap as chips, so just what is it about it that makes it so special?

The answer is that its bristles are magic or that they are made with IntelliFlex technology, a material with specific properties which somehow magically allow the bristles to be more flexible or more rigid, depending on the amount of resistance they encounter whilst passing through the hair.

In other words they glide through the hair easily even when it is tangled, just as I discovered. The bristles are widely spaced and also have specially rounded, globular ends that are gentle on the scalp and give it a nice, gently refreshing massage as they move across it.

This, in turn helps promote strong, healthy hair growth by stimulating increased blood flow to the hair follicles. 

Can the Wet Brush be used on dry hair?

Yes, the Wet Brush can of course be used to brush dry hair as well as wet or damp. When hair is wet, it is at its most vulnerable, as we mentioned, so being able to easily and effectively brush through wet, tangled hair, whilst at the same time not damaging it, takes a special kind of brush, the Wet Brush.

When the hair is dry it is less vulnerable but still susceptible to damage from rough handling with a hairbrush and still, at best, awkward to de-tangle. The Wet Brush performs equally well, fantastically well on dry hair, those magic bristles know what they are doing, wet or dry.

What is the difference between a Wet Brush and a regular hairbrush?

To all intents and purposes the Wet Brush seems to look like any regular hairbrush. Nothing jumps out at you to say ‘Hmm, this looks different, something is going on here’.

On picking the Wet Brush up, it feels like a typical regular hairbrush, although you would notice the comfortably shaped handle sits nicely in your hand and that it feels well balanced, but you haven’t got there yet.

It is only when you run it through your hair for the first time that you have that moment of Ahaaa!, now I understand what the difference is
You might not know how it is doing it, not until you find out about the Intelliflex technology and the magic bristles.

But you know that you have just had for the first time in your life, the sensation of a warm knife going through butter and not the sensation of you going ten rounds with Tangle-hair Tyson, whilst simply brushing your hair. Now that, is the difference between a regular hairbrush and the Wet Brush.

Is there just one type of Wet Brush?

The original Wet Brush has evolved into a whole range of Wet Brushes. There are now Wet Brush varieties of every size, shape, style, colour and print that you could ask for. There are about 150 varieties in the range.

There is even a small, foldable, neon pop-up, the Travel Wet Brush that fits perfectly in any modest sized handbag, so you can have a Wet Brush with you wherever you go.

J and D Beauty Products who own the brand have recently launched the Wet Brush Pro line, so you can also expect to have one used on your hair next time you visit a hair salon, there really is no getting away from them, they are the right tool for the job.

I do not know how the pricing structure for the forthcoming Pro range will work but for the rest of us they are an absolute snitch, in fact I am so delighted with mine and the drama-free hair-brushing household I now live in  that I would be so daring as to say, I would happily pay more {Shhhhh, don’t tell them}.

The original Wet Brush is currently often still available for comfortably under $20…..bargain!
