If you are in the market for shopping a detangling brush, here are a few videos you may want to watch before you shop. Not sure if a detangling brush is for you? These are all specifically designed with textured hair in mind, and they're created by 3 of our favorite Youtubers.
Long, Thick 3C Curls: Denman Brush
Using a very basic technique, Curls&Beauty&Life shows her fellow tailbone length 3B/3C curly hair viewers how to use the Denman brush on wet hair with a quarter sized amount of leave-in curl creme. Using just short simple strokes of the brush, wet, thick curls are tangle-free and frizz-free in just one short session.
This brush is available online at Shop.NaturallyCurly.com and in Sally Beauty stores.
Low Porosity, Fine 3B Curls: Tangle Teezer
The video shows those of us with 3A-3B fine curly hair how to use a wide tooth comb, a Boots brush (vented with wide plastic “Bristles” ) a large roll brush with bristles and the Tangle Teezer. Thesparkleicious promotes the Tangle Teezer stating that “it’s an amazing brush” and is available in varied sizes and colors. The Tangle Teezer is great for thick curls--long or short, and it is great for managing difficult knots and tangles.
This brush is available online at Amazon and in Target stores.
Color-treated, 2A Waves: The Wet Brush
A very candid video review--yes, there’s “language” in it--about The Wet Brush. Rachel Whitehurst has thick, red, color-treated wavy hair (which she bleached on the ends) and states that it’s usually tangled mess. According to Whitehurst, this brush has definitely changed her life and she lets you know in full detail. The brush is used in the shower, on wet hair, and glides through thick curls in just seconds - according to the video. The Wet Brush allows for zero tangles or frizz, and easy to style hair.
This brush is available online at Folica and in Ulta stores.
