First Impressions: The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush

I'm all about my hair - I have no shame in this as my hair can be a huge source of my confidence, annoyance and a huge time delay but most of all I love it. My hair has been through some serious destruction due to my indecisive nature (If you follow me on Instagram you will know my constant thought process on colours) and because of this I have to take real care of it. In fact, by take real care of it I mean obsess over it and constantly fuel this by buying new products and tools.

Prior to my trip to Vegas I added The Wet Brush* to my collection in the purple colour - they come in what seem to be hundreds of colours hence why I note it.  My first thoughts on the brush itself was that it just looked normal. A normal, basic, standard, run of the mill hair brush so considering it is marketed as 'the only brush you will ever need' I was a little confused.

According to the makers it is The Wet Brush's Intelliflex bristles and SofTips that make this a truly superior brush. The bristles are meant to be thin, strong and super flexible meaning that when you brush your wet hair that any tangles come out easily with no pain. As someone with naturally curly, dry, damaged hair this seemed to be the impossible claim. I've really been testing it over the past 2 months so don't be offended by hair in these pictures... 

The Wet Brush

This brush is small but mighty. It has survived drops, a trip to Vegas, my crazy hair and getting trapped in a foldout chair. I think it's time with me it's been through a lot more than the average brush but yet still remains in great condition. Not only does it do the job well but for me what makes it rate highly is that it's easily to clean. Yes in these pictures I left hair in the brush but because of how the bristles are spaced it is super easy to clean - major plus points for me as I have spent hours with a tweezer cleaning paddle brushes in the past.

My overall opinion is that it's a good brush that does go through my mane well, but it hasn't made me want to throw all my others away. I suspect it will be the one I reach for when I travel as it's quite light and slightly smaller than my normal paddle brushes plus it's cute. I have just seen that the makers now have mini versions and they do them in pastel shades so as I am a collector I will have to add them asap.

The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush is now a part of my hair brush collection but used mainly when I come out of the shower or for when I feel like brushing my dry, straight hair. I haven't been brave enough yet to use it on my full on curly dry hair as I have not yet found a brush to be able to survive it! 

Am I the only one with a hair brush collection?

Welcome back home and I can't wait for your reviews (especially the eyeliner, which both look fantastic). Congratulations on your engagement and I'm happy to read you had a great time in the US. Hope to catch up soon xxx

I've heard great things about the wet brush and I want to buy one soon. I feel it'll be better for my long, thick hair than the tangle teezer, which I personally don't love. x

Oooh, what a great haul. v.jealous, especially of the Kat Von D stuff, I seriously want the Tattoo Liner, the Lock It foundation and the Studded Kiss lipstick range, but tricky and expensive to get where I am. Amazing. Looks like you had the trip of a lifetime xx

Have you tried the Air Motion brush? I haven't used anything but a Tangle Teezer for ages, but then I won an Air Motion and fell in love. No more brush shooting out of your hand when you move it a bit too vigourously! Have used it every day since then and its light as anything. x

I have the Tangle Teezer and long, thick, curly hair - it's never worked so well for me so The Wet Brush was a better option. x
