We mentioned that the primary aim of the original Wet Brush, known as the Original Detangler, is to ease the brushing of wet hair. Even though after-shower hair brushing is pretty normal, experts do warn about the risks of taking bristles to wet hair. For those with non-textured and non-curly hair types, tresses are most vulnerable when wet, meaning that brushing and detangling directly after a shower can cause excess damage. Even though those with curly and textured hair are typically instructed to brush their hair while wet to maintain curl patterns and avoid breakage, that doesn’t exclude them from needing the right type of tools to effectively detangle saturated locks.
The Wet Brush is designed with both hair sensitivity and detangling needs in mind, as Sonna Brado, stylist and Global Artist at KMS Hair, tells Real Simple, “The main difference is that while a normal brush is generally made with natural bristles (or a combination of natural and nylon) that are closely packed together, a wet brush is made with flexible, plastic bristles that move with the hair. She continued, “Wet brushes will also have wide spacing between the bristles so that hair moves more easily through them.” These differences make the Wet Brush both easier to use and more effective in practice, typically leading to healthier hair overall, regardless of type.
