The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush is said to be the best detangling brush currently on the market. With my fine hair and love for having my hair flap around in the wind it’s a big surprise that I’ve waited so long to actually try this brush. My hair knots and tangles extremely easily.

The Wet Brush Range

The Wet Brush is available in six different types in South Africa with the Round Brush being the latest addition. It’s newly launched and available at selected clicks stores. The range includes a whole bunch of must have brushes!

Paddle Brush Detangler

This is the brush I’ve been trying out and I really like it. The bristles are long and sturdy enough to get through my hair and massage my scalp. The bristles also bend so I don’t feel like something is trying to dig trough my head. I’ve used it on my hair wet and dry with no pulling. I also brushed everyone’s hair in the house!

The Paddle’s IntelliFlex bristles are super thin, strong and flexible. These bristles will glide through any hair type combing out tangles effortlessly. The bristles’ flexibility enables protective and pain-free detangling while the SofTips on the very top of the bristles massage the scalp to stimulate circulation at the follicle. They are firm enough to comb through knots, yet flexible enough to be gentle on the scalp. Their IntelliFlex bristles bounce back to their original form after each stroke eliminating all the hair breakage and pain that used to be associated with brushing your hair. The Paddle can be used on wet or dry hair and works on extensions and wigs.

Original Detangler & Kids Detangler

This is the very first Wet Brush and performs the same as the paddle brush. The only difference is the shape and size.

Shine Enhancer Wet Brush

The key to beautiful, shiny hair is in this brush. The shine enhancer is made from 100% natural boar and IntelliFlex bristles. It gently detangles while it spreads your hair’s natural oil, creating vibrant luster and shine. It also works great for evenly distributing dry shampoo.

Rapid Speed Round Brush

The aero technology vented design helps style hair at rapid speed. Nylon heat resistant bristles give incredible bounce and volume. This is the latest addition to the Wet Brush family.

Blow Dry Speed Dry Brush

The Speed Dry brush’s vented design speeds drying time by allowing moisture to escape faster. Its heat-resistant bristles gently detangles while blow drying. So you can skip the extra heat and avoid damage, keeping your hair healthy and happy.

Shower Flex Detangler

This brush knows how to multitask. It gently detangles while distributing conditioning treatments evenly in the shower. It’s designed without a cushion for easy cleaning and air drying—not to mention it has a convenient shower hook handle. When you’re finished detangling, just rinse it off and hang it up!

The best part of these brushes – besides them not feeling like mid evil torturing devices – is the really affordable price point. I would really love to try out the new round brush as I’m not happy with my current one. Let me know which Wet Brush is your favourite!

    My hairdresser actually used this brand to blow my hair last weekend, so I was really excited to see this post. I don’t see that specific brush here, but hoping to get my hands on it soon.
