Of course my child is perfect in every way! she farts flowers and is a baby genius. However even I have to admit that bath time is a struggle, combing out Freya's hair is a bit of a mission to say the least. Due to my hands off approach to styling opting to have her roam free when she is not at nursery. This does leave us with a birds nest at the ends of the week. Like most people I dug out the Tangle Teezer and struggled to grip hold of it whilst dealing with a wriggly 2 year old. I found that as good as the Tangle Teezer is at de-tangling I still had to section the hair and take time or Freya's very curly hair would sometimes tangle in the brush I have also found that Tangle Teezers can cause breakage on very curly hair. Then I got my hands on the Air Motion brush which I initially believed was a Tangle Teezer with a handle, which rectifies one of the grips I have with Tangle Teezers. However I have been using the Air Motion on Freya's hair for a few weeks and have noticed how much easier it is to brush her hair. If you want details on how the Air Motion brush works you will have to visit the website, because it's like some kind of science that Nasa could of thought up!
The 'brittle configuration' takes the stress from daily brushing leading to less breakage. For the purpose of the review I brushed Freya's hair with the Air Motion Brush when it was dry and it really does smooth the hair, and I didn't hear a peep out of her. No Tears. NONE. The spokes of the Air Motion Brush are longer and more flexible than the Tangle Teezer. So I'm finding the brush allows for more fluidity. The bristles are also smoother too, I've found on closer inspection of my Tangle Teezer there are a few seams on the bristles which snag and break the hair.
In My opinion the Air Motion brush is better than the Tangle Teezer on Freya's Type 3 hair. I don't use combs or brushes in my hair so I'm not in the position to tell you if it works on kinkier textured hair. at £11.95 it's a great bit of kit to have in the battle of bath time! Buy Here
