I have the hardest time getting a brush through my hair when it's wet after towel drying it and also when I go to bed with wet hair and wake up with a wavy rats nest looking hair! So that being the case, that is when I tested out this brush. I towel dried my hair and started at the top working my way down. It easily glided through my hair which surprised me! When I got to the ends where it always gets a little more tangled, I did have to go a little bit harder but there was no pain involved. The bristles they use don't snag on the hair but will untangle it! Which also prevents breakage because your not snapping pieces of hair off when tugging it with the wrong brush! It was even easier to get the brush through my morning hair!
If I love this brush as much as I do, a kid would be delighted to have their parents use this instead of one that will tug and pull at their hair and cause pain. Now, I use this instead of my other brushes because of it's ease and less damage to my hair and I loveee that! But I also love that you cab buy little gems to bedazzle your Smoobee!!! Smoobee goes for $23.99 and the gems go for $2.99! You also get free shipping if you purchase two brushes. Also, keep in mind how much more your child would want to use this brush if she decorated it all by herself!!
