The Knot Genie™ Detangling Brush was created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child’s hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly.
Growing up I always hated having my hair brushed. My hair has always been long, with the occasional short hair style every once in a while. I remember my grandma always trying to comb my hair or “birds nest” as she always called it. It usually ended with her cutting a big chunk of hair out because the knot just wouldn’t come out. I now know what she was going through with my screaming for her to stop because now I have my own little girl, who also hates her hair being brushed.
My little girl is 2 and a half and her hair is down the middle of her back. She doesn’t always let me pull it back so on days when it is down it becomes a huge mess. Anything she eats gets in her hair. This time of year it is worse! She loves candy canes and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled candy canes out of her hair, which of course means her hair becomes a tangled mess! I was happy when The Knot Genie arrived at my door. I was pretty curious as to what would make it different than the brushes we had.
The magic trick behind the Knot Genie™ is one we are happy to reveal. It all has to do with the different lengths of teeth on the brush. When brushing, they bend just right, to gently untangle the hair. And because of this lack of stress, the hair’s cuticle stays unharmed… revealing the smoothest, shiniest hair you’ve ever seen.
I decided to try it out on myself just so I knew what it would feel like to my little girl, I was surprised at how soft it felt. Now my hair isn’t tangled quite like hers but I was hopeful that she would be happy with it as well. The Knot Genie can be used on wet or dry hair. I always brush hers after her bath so it will be a little easier. The first time I used it was on an especially knotted day, it was the first time she sat almost long enough for me to do the whole thing, usually she bolts after just a few brushes! It actually went through pretty smoothly and since then she lets me do the whole thing and she hasn’t cried with it yet. The unique shape of The Knot Genie fits perfectly in my little girls hand, she really likes to brush my hair also.
The fact that The Knot Genie isn’t like traditional hair brushes goes way beyond the bristle side. Its unique cloud-shaped top fits the palm nicely, whether you’re right or left handed. Which means it feels more like an extension of your hand than a grooming tool. And also means the brushing process is far more comfortable, gentle, and most importantly, done quickly.
I have been very happy with my Knot Genie, I think anyone with a little girl with long, tangled hair should give it a try. These would fit nicely in a stocking too!
