Summer is here which means we will be jumping in and out of pools, lakes, and oceans. It's what summer is all about! Unfortunately, tangled, knotty hair is also what summer is all about. That is until my recent discovery of the Wet Brush. It's one of those under 10 dollar purchases that makes you wonder why you didn't buy it years ago. Wet Brush is a brush specifically designed with flexible bristles that gently untangle wet hair. I swear it's like magic! It slides through your hair with ease, unknotting your hair painlessly all while preventing any breakage. It also feels amazing on your scalp. And while I stuck with boring black, but it comes in tons of different colors and styles.
Not only is it great for adults who whine when trying to detangle their own hair, but it's great for whiny kids too. I wish my mom had the Wet Brush when I was a kid so we could have avoided my brattiness as she tried to untangle the birds nest on top of my head at the end of each summer day.
Yes, I'm touting this as a summer "must have" because it's great to use right after a dip in the ocean, but truthfully I bought this in the winter and have been using it everyday since. It's become so much a part of my post-shower beauty routine that I vowed never to travel without it again during my last trip away when I left it at home. After using this gentle brush everyday, brushing my wet hair with a normal brush felt so harsh. It's been especially useful in preventing any extra breakage as my hair has started to fall out post-baby. I need all the hair I can get these days!
I'm not the only fan of this brush, if you check out reviews at stores or on amazon it's crazy how many people rave about the Wet Brush. I thought it was perfect for my fine, tangly hair, but people with thick, curly hair and of all ethnicities seem to love it too. My only warning is that I personally can't use it on my dry hair, it makes my hair extra dry and frizzy, but other people say they can style their dry hair with it, as well.
So whether you are jumping out of the surf or the shower, you should try this brush. It also comes in a travel size, perfect for sticking in a beach bag pocket!
