Wet brush to my hair is what Salux cloth is to my skin, Tweezerman tweezers to my brows and Shiseido curler to my lashes, haven't found good enough dupes for any of these items. I love combing thru conditioner with it, feels so good on the scalp, and it's so gentle, I hardly lose any hair with it, yet it glides through any tangles very easily. I prefer this to any comb. Got this on ebay for almost half less of what it usually goes for (I got the original for sure, not a knock off).
Seen dupes by Swissco at TJ Maxx, tried both oval and paddle type ones, and also the one by Vidal Sassoon I found in a grocery store near me, but didn't like them as much. They work great too, and are just as gentle and don't pull out any more hair than the original, but I found pins to be just a bit more firm than the original, and I just like the flexibility and softness of the original more, it's all about the subtle difference in feel to me, not actual performance. I mean those dupes are still great and I would rec them to others, most people probably wouldn't even notice the difference or it wouldn't matter to them, since it works the same.
However, bonus to firmer dupes is that it's possible to brush dry hair with them too, especially bigger paddle one, while I can't do that with the original that only works for me on wet.
I've probably been using the same brush for about 8 years i know gross haha but seriously this brush has been through hell and back with my hair and still exists! Always untangles my thin frizzy un-manageable hair and it's great!
I found out about this brush from MUA (as i do most of my products). All the rave reviews convinced me to get it.
The single brush is $9.99. On the website you can get free shipping if you spend over $15 so i decided to buy the pink pack which comes with a "Wet Brush" a "Shine Brush" and a "The Squirt" (just a mini Wet Brush). That's $24.99. I just got the package yesterday and have not tried The Shine or The Squirt yet so I can't say how those are.
The Wet Brush really disappointed me. I tried so hard to like it and make it work but my hair was just not having it. I was nice and gave it 3 lippies because the price isn't outrageous and it's not like it doesn't work at all. It just takes FOREVER. I also gave it a 3 taking into consideration how thick my hair is and how i used it. I bought this for one purpose - to brush my hair in the shower. While conditioner is in it. I have a very strict routine how i brush and wash my hair so it does not look like a giant frizzy-curly poof-ball.
I wash my hair twice with two different shampoos. A sulfate free to gently cleanse (DermOrganic) and then a dab of Head and Shoulders to treat my flaky scalp. I then go in with my conditioner (I use Dove Damage Therapy) and brush my hair WHILE the conditioner is in it.
This is to
1. Make sure all the conditioner is evenly distributed
2. It is a lot easier to on my hair to de-tangle this way.
That being said I also have A TON of hair. Like a lot. It is curly/wavy, but frizzy and poofy. Very fine strands but LOTS of them. So maybe this is why the brush didn't work for me. Maybe i just need a heavy duty brush to get through all my hair in a timely manner. I literally brushed my hair in the shower for 5-10 minutes. Now i know that does seem like forever but just to brush your hair? I'm not that patient. Yes, it worked and yes, barely and hair broke off. But still. I may try this once or twice again just to see if i can get used to it but i doubt it. Again, I REALLY wanted this to work. Maybe it's just my hair type or how i use it. The bristles are just not strong enough to properly brush my tangles out.
Oh well, maybe I'll find another use for it. I tend to not brush my hair out of the shower because it's curly, but the next time I straighten it I will try out The Shine brush and write a review for that.
Cannot believe I went my whole life without this. This is one of the most amazing products I have ever tried, which sounds crazy because it is just a hair brush, but man has the Wet Brush made my hair look so much healthier! I have hair almost down to my waist so it is a constant struggle to keep it tangle-free and healthy. I use oils to keep my ends hydrated, but for the longest time I could not find a way to permanently get rid of the giant tangled knots I would get after coming out of the shower. I'm not sure how this brush works, but it manages to take out any knot with EASE and pretty much slides through the hair like butter. Ever since I started using this, my knots have disappeared and my hair looks so much smoother. It is one of things that you just have to try to believe - it may look like an average brush but it has completely changed my hair!
I feel like I've been living under a rock - I only heard about this recently! Where was this when my DD was younger? Back then I used the Goody Outchless brush which is still ok but not perfect (too few bristles?) ... and not long ago I bought a Tangle Teezer knock off from SwissCo? I'm actually not that thrilled with those since they're hard to hang on to (no real handle) and the hard plastic bristles... I didn't believe they were gentle on the scalp. Then I started seeing ads for The Wet Brush. Intrigued, I googled reviews which all looked crazy good. What did I have to loose? I bought 3 right off the bat (one for me, one for DD and one for DS who lets his hair grow to shoulder length from time to time). We all LOVE the Wet Brush! It must be the flexibility of the bristles that doesn't pull and yet it does get right through the hair and detangles virtually pain free! DD has long thick hair to her butt and this works wonder for her. I've also seen knock offs for these on Amazon & Winners but I prefer to stick with the Luxor Pro Wet Brush since the "soft tip" balls on the tips of the bristles are guaranteed not to come off on the Wet Brush but I've read reviews about the knock offs that they do fall off. For a couple of bucks, I'd rather have the one with the guarantee. Definitely worth it!
Found it on Amazon randomly and purchased.
I have bleached hair and seems to be the most gentle brush I found so far.
Works great on wet hair but I use it all the time now.
Just bought the smaller version for desk at work.
I will most likely never buy a different hairbrush. I have very fine hair that likes to tangle every chance it gets. This is a miracle worker, even without any detangling product. It makes brushing painless, quick, and overall a total breeze. It's also incredibly gentle and never tugs or breaks my hair. I can't recommend this enough.
Why haven't I heard of this brush before! I have crazy curly hair and wide tooth combs just don't cut it! This brush is amazing! Great for de tangling hair right out of the shower! The best part is, that the bristles aren't super stubborn and firm! They are flexible so your hair won't break as much!!!
I love this brush tremendously. I have to take a point off because my hair is too thick to use it while dry. However, I have yet to find a brush that can handle my hair.
It takes a lot of time, but I can get this through my hair when it is wet... Which I can't even do with a wide tooth comb. Before the Wet Brush, I used to just comb my hair with my fingers ad let air dry before trying to actually brush it out.
My husband often steals this brush for himself and adores it. His hair is as long as mine, but normal thickness. I have very sleek and straight hair down to my mid-back. It is very difficult to care for, but is much easier with such a tool.
Love this. Really does get out all the tangles with no ripping or tugging at my scalp. I use this in the shower post co wash and it works really well. It doesn't work as well on dry hair but that's to be expected. The bristles really are too flexible for that and my hair is way too densely tangled. But I really do love it for detangling in the shower. I wouldn't know how well it compares to say the tangle teezer, but it works way better than a standard wide tooth comb. I would definitely recommend it.
