I have vivid memories of having major knots in my hair as a child and spending time in the bathroom crying as my mom worked them out with a comb and a brush. She tried to be gentle, but there was only so much she could do to make the situation painless. It didn’t really help matters that she had a spiral perm put in my hair when I was only 9 and couldn’t really take care of hair that curly by myself. But I digress…
Some kids have hair just that curly on their own, or even if it isn’t that curly, still seem to be prone to major tangles and knots. Enter The Knot Genie. This is a wonderful de-tangling brush that really does work like magic to de-tangle hair, all without the tears and tantrums that usually accompany those hair brushing sessions. We’ve tried it out, and found it to be really soft and really good and brushing out hair. We aren’t yet at a place where we have tangles, but Darah’s hair does have some curls, and they are no problem for the Knot Genie.
There is a second element to this brush that I really love, too. It is EXCELLENT for any toddler who still has cradle cap. Darah is one of those kids who didn’t lose her cradle cap at a year, or even at 2. We’ve tried countless things to get rid of it, and have had minimal success. But this brush’s bristles are doing the best job of anything so far at massaging her scalp and getting that stuff to come off. Yay!!!
The Knot Genie retails for $19.99 and can be purchased online.
