Your Hair Deserves This

I bought a $50 hairbrush and I’m not ashamed.

We put our hair through SO much. We color it, bleach it, straighten it, curl it, use hair ties, style it… My hair was so fried at one point I couldn’t run a brush through it when it was damp. When The Wet Brush came out and I thought it was gods gift to earth, I could kind of brush my hair again!

Then after 6 months, my Wet Brush started falling apart and I was appalled. My old hairbrush (granted, this thing pulled and broke my hair like no one’s business) lasted for years. You all know I’m frugal about certain things, and who wants to buy a new hairbrush? No one.

So I bought another wet brush, because anything is better than my original one, and I mean, $10 isn’t that bad, plus they are less expensive on Amazon.

My old hairdresser started to use the paddle brush on me. This was a game changer, so I bought it. This was WAY better than their original for my hair.

But here’s the thing, my hair gets super tangly when its damp, and I can hardly get through it, even with a wet brush.

I would use hair masks, and deep conditioning treatments weekly, thinking that my hair was just dry, even though every hair pro says my hair is healthy. Umm. define healthy, because IMO healthy means I can brush it… LOL. BTW, if you want my tips on how to have your healthiest hair ever CLICK HERE

When I switched hairdressers I was introduced purple shampoo. I started getting that white blonde I’ve wanted for years, and my hair definitely showed its stance. It was NOT happy.

<Funny story, the day before our wedding I did a major deep conditioning treatment so I could use purple shampoo the morning of. Welp, I forgot my brush at home and had to use the hotel comb to try to brush my hair. Steve spent an hour that morning combing my hair for me (he has way more patience than I do). If that isn’t true love, I don’t know what is.>

In case you were wondering how my hair turned out on my wedding day…

So in October, I had my first blow out (ever) at BLO in Carlsbad and the stylist was using the most amazing brush. It brushed through my hair in 1 try after using purple shampoo! Whattt?! I had to know what it was. 

I searched for it on Amazon as I was sitting in her chair. $50. OMG. There is no way.

So naturally, I ask for one for Christmas. No one got it for me (I don’t blame them, a $50 brush seems insane). So I bought it for myself… hah.  

So, was it worth it?

I’ve been using it since and it is a total game changer. I don’t dread using purple shampoo on my hair anymore. I don’t feel like I’m breaking my hair off, and overall my hair is just SO much happier.

So, if you are in the same boat as me, I STRONGLY encourage to check out the MarulaOil Detangling brush from Paul Mitchell. I don’t know why they call it the Marula Oil brush because it doesn’t have Marula oil in it(?). 

After I wash my hair I’ve been using the Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Leave-in Conditioner spray and my hair has never been more manageable.

Have you ever tried the MarulaOil brush? what about Kristin Ess Products? Let me know! I love to hear what has worked for you!

*Update after having the brush for almost 2 years. The little balls on the end of the bristles start to pop off after about a year of use. I tried another wet brush type brush but kept going back to this one so I purchased another. It’s worth it!

Love Lauren

    I been having the same problems with my hair and as I’m getting older I try to be careful not to pull and break my hair while brushing. I think I’ll spend my $30 and try this brush.

    So I’ve been using the wet brush forever and love it but it doesn’t do the job as well as I’d like it to. Ever since I’ve bleached my hair it is a hot mess after the shower! I need to try this brush because I break my hair so much and have given up trying not to 😑
