How We Use the Wet Brush to End Hair Brushing Tears

NOTE: I was NOT paid or even given this brush. I purchased this brush on my own and have fallen in love with it, hence providing you with a true been there, done that experience! 

Are you looking to either get your daughter to deal with getting her hair brushed or find a brush that will make hair bushing in the AM much more tolerable for all of you? I have found the solution! We are huge fans of the Wet Brush – the ONLY brush that we use in this house if we don’t want to hear, “OWWWWWW! That hurts!” when I’m doing hair.

How I Found the Wet Brush

At a playgroup for my youngest, I overheard a mom talking about some awesome brush that her older daughter can tolerate when she brushes her hair. Just that morning I had another ordeal with my 6 year old who freaks out when I’m trying to gently brush through her tangles. It always turns into trauma! You would think I was taking tweezers and yanking out individual pieces of her hair, over and over again. I interrupted the conversation to get the details.

What was this brush and where could I get it?

A local hair salon, Gleam in South Miami, carried the brush. My mom was heading to the salon in the coming days so I put her on the task. She was as motivated as I was to end the hair brushing agony. The Wet Brush was out of stock! Yes, it was that popular already. She placed an order and within a week I was heading over to Gleam to pick it up.

The Wet Brush Changed Our Mornings

It’s pretty profound to say that a hairbrush could change a morning, but it did. The Wet Brush’s bristle design is in a way that it prevents uncomfortable tugging on the hair and combs the hair smooth. It’s pretty miraculous.

    How does that brush do that is what I want to know?! Regardless, I need to find it and get it for my daughter – her hair is so fine and pin straight that it gets into knots after a night’s sleep. I have to hear my daughter whine and run away whenever she sees a brush in my hand!

    Love the video!! I have seen this brush used in many makeup videos I watch on YouTube and I’ve been SOOOO tempted to pick it up for myself since they say not to brush your hair when it is wet but I do anyways, lol

    Confession: I have amazing curly hair. So amazing that some days if I don’t want to bother with the tangles, I just don’t. I have been known to not bother with those dag on tangles for maybe two (okay three) days. That means that when I wash it the next morning, there are gonna be some tangles – so I know what the wet brush is all about. I will be searching this sucker out. Great post. Angst saving post. Grown up tear saving post.
