Thing 2 is approaching 2.5 and does not like getting her hair brushed. Up to this point it hasn’t been much of an issue since its barely past her ears and she has never had a haircut. I like to avoid using excess products which is just about all products. We wash my daughter’s hair with water most nights. The only time we breakout the shampoo is for when it truly gets dirty with some foreign substance. Her hair is thin and soft but after naptime she channels albert einstein’s famous look. It’s soft enough to hand comb but it takes longer for obvious reasons. It was time for me to turn to my good friend, Amazon.
$14 at the time of my order
Comes with hair tie holder and base
Smaller then the knot genie
Well constructed, solid build.
$16.50 at the time of my order
Large surface area
Flexible bristles but not as soft as Tangle Teezer
Feels cheap and I fear the colored top will fall off
The brush design from these products are extremely similar and both can brush through my toddler’s trestles with ease. The winner is clearly the Tangle Teezer though for a few reasons. It’s softer and gentler to Thing 2’s scalp. The smaller design may at first seem like a disadvantage but its actually easier to hold for both myself and Thing 2. Lastly its a few dollars cheaper and comes with a place to store some hair clips.
The Tangle Teezer is great and really working for us but I wish it had a handle. The next contender in the hair brush showdown is the Wet Brush. It’s half the price and comes in your standard brush shape. I can’t wait to try it out and see if it works as well as the two above.
