My hair tangles the most between scalp and ear and brushing that part seemed to take less time, but I need to test it a bit more often to be sure.
    For me it's a life-saver, for those gnarly tangles right before washing, from not having brush-detangled the entire week; mostly due to my natural texture. Yeah, even the knock-offs are amazing.

    And I had the same thoughts you did. I could not believe this brush would do anything but hurt. Boy, was I ever wrong!

    So you use it on dry hair, too? I'm really starting to like it. I think I bought the classic version. I saw on their homepage that they have other versions as well (with boar bristles or a paddle brush). Do you know, are there significant differences?

    I've a Head Jog straw brush that's classed as a 'wet brush' and it is awesome. It was 5 off eBay, though they're more expensive now. It just glides through and there's hardly any hair in the brush afterwards! The TT with the handle left my hair static-y and there was so much hair in the brush every time I used it.

    Finda, I use mine on dry hair before I wash it. Lapushka's right, it seems to gently detangle without pulling.

    My mom has the one for dry hair. She uses it only to smooth her style down these days. It is a boar bristle mix, this one; so beware, it is a totally different brush!

    I just use the one for wet hair on dry hair and it is even better for detangling harsh tangles on dry hair. IMO.

    Yes, static is also an issue I have with the TT from time to time. I had to look up Head Jog, is it a UK brand? The brush looks like the flex dry brush. Is there actually a difference between brushes with or without a "pillow"?

    Okay, thanks, I also have good results on dry hair with the one I have, but I wonder whether the boar bristles help distribute the sebum?

    I’m not sure if it’s a UK brand but the Head Jog has a flexible, moveable base so it flexes with your hair as you use it. There is no pillow or solid base. At first I thought well this is a gimmick.. then I used it and was OMG this is amazing.

    So I read this whole thread and I still thought, well, brushing wet sounds iffy... but then the people at WetBrush came out with the mermaid themed ones and i just had to have one. And I loved it. And I needed to try all the rest. And now I have a collection. I LOVE them. They just glide through my thick, wavy hair, wet or dry. I still use my BBB or wooden quill brush on dry hair (or my Phillips #11 when I really want that scalp massage feeling), but for detangling? These are better for my wet hair than a seamless detangling comb!
