Curly girls think outside the box. For one, we have to. Ten years ago there were only a few products on the shelves for curlies and now we seem to take over every hair care aisle in any store. It feels good! Despite finally getting our just due, we still think outside the box for what our hair needs. Sometimes we find unique tools that are not designed for us, but we find a way to incorporate it into our regimen.
I’m talking about horse hair brushes. Yes, brushes that were created to brush the tangles out of horse manes. Many curly women swear by it! As long as you are not sharing it with your horse you should be just fine. This very unusual brush has an innovative design comprising uniquely flexible comb rows that gently loosen the tangles.
It is created to prevent hair pulling or breaking strands by moving with the hair and not against it.
There are anywhere from 7 to 9 flexible comb rows that bend out and snap back without harming the hair. Made of nylon, it usually weighs around 1.4 ounces and around 8 ¾ inches long. It is created to prevent hair pulling or breaking strands by moving with the hair and not against it. It is made of nylon and has a wavy handle with a grip for easy use. The winning component in this brush is its flexible rows that are not attached at the top, which allows for optimal flexibility in brushing.
How does it compare to other brushes?
According to women who have tried all three, it seems to beat out other brushes like the Tangle Teezer and the Denman. While I have heard and read reviews in which curlies raved about both the Tangle Teezer and the Denman, I have also heard that they can cause breakage for some women. I have yet to hear any negative experiences with the horse hair brush, other than complaints of steep markups by a few retailers.
