I’ve had to quit wet brushes. After replacing several chest of drawers from these wet brushes that emit water around the clock, ruining clothes, furniture, and flooring, I’ve returned to the far less effective dry brushes. It was a sacrifice and it hurt me quite deeply but a few sessions with a therapist has me doing somewhat better. I envy those of you who have somehow managed to use wet brushes without the monetary losses I have endured. Live goes on but without my beloved wet brushes.
@jewelshound I suggest storing in a plastic tub with a drain hose, then routing the hose to an open drain. Conveniently you probably use the brush in the bathroom and there are plenty of open drains to route to including the sink. If you’re really concerned about a potential leak pair with a leak frog for peace of mind.
Bought these last time on Meh and they are amazing. I have really thick, curly hair and they detangle my hair very effectively and without pulling. At first didnt think they were penetrating my hair because they are very gentle and dont feel like they are doing much, but then you realize your hair is brushed all the way through. Im very impressed. Going to buy them for my other curly haired friends.
@debs3hrtscmj how are these different than the 10 other hairbrushes that are always laying out in my way in every cupboard and nook that the woman-folk who put them there can never find?
I assume those are Walmart basics. But what makes these different on a technical level? Might be worth it if it made brushing out the 4.5 year old less painful. Are the tips just more flexible so you have to do more passes to gently work tangles out?
Mom is a beautician and swears by these for people with sensitive heads like myself. I concur, been using one of the smaller ones for quite a while. They make one that fits on a keychain; maybe that’ll be on here someday.
The little balls on the end of the bristles are not smooth and can cause damage to wet or dry hair; a wet brush should have smooth rounded end bristles, not those balls on the ends. No way. I have a fifteen year old plastic wide tooth comb still going strong, and better hair since ditching the brush, anyway.
@owenversteeg They really are known to be great brushes and Wet Brush is definitely THE brand in this category. Embarrassingly, I’ve personally ordered this deal each time we’ve sold it, and I’m the buyer (getting high off my own supply). They definitely are more on the practical side of brushes vs pretty wooden ones but I will say I did TRY to pick pretty ones
@owenversteeg@unksol they get tangles out not only easily but painlessly. No pulling at all. It’s amazing for people with sensitive scalps and also for children. It also is one of the few brushes you can use if you have extensions to not cause damage to them. It can even be used on extremely curly hair that can’t be brushes normally. It will not damage or pull out your hair or create more knots like some other brushes. Oh and also the pro line has sturdier handles.
@candiedisilvio1 I’m surprised how many people posting are talking about brushing their curly hair.
My wife and I both have curly hair, though I cut mine short now. Between the two of us, we didn’t even own a hairbrush until our straight-haired daughter got old enough to need one.
@mandirose@therealjrn Yep. Maybe it’s just our locations but they’re there. Bought 2 a few weeks ago. 1 for a friend as her granddaughter couldn’t stand her hair brushed with anything else: It hurt too much. I tried the other but didn’t like how it took so long to get through my long, thick mess. (I’d rather grit my teeth through a few of the tangles than have my arm ache by the time I’m done.) They do work great, though!
BTW…Those 4 pack flashlights from the other day?..Got mine today…for little cheap flashlights they are great. The magnet is super strong, has a lanyard hook on it, the floodlight feature is great and the damn thing throws enough light for dog walking, key finding and general use around the house…
Thing 2 who normally cries at brushing her hair and for awhile wouldn’t let anyone touch her with a brush in their hand swears by WET brushes. I got them last time for the family and grabbing these too as with three girls in the house I need more brushes. Also they do an epic job on my mane when I want to brush the beard.
