This is a technically advanced hairbrush, and is nicely packaged to reflect that. Inside the box the brush itself is quite different. The handle has a soft touch rubberised coating, and the shape fits really nicely into any size of hand and is quite small, so ideal for children.
The bristles and head of the brush are all moulded from the same piece of soft plastic. This means hair doesn't catch around where the bristles come through the head of the brush. All the bristles are different lengths to glide through the hair, and none of the bristles touch - which is another big cause of snagging and tugging out hairs.
If you've ever visited my blog you'll have seen my two young lad's hair. They're both unfortunately blessed with the naturally very curly hair myself and their Dad have, and they both insist they want to grow it and don't want it cut. Brushing can be a nightmare and has always been kept to a minimum for all of our sanity!
I tested the AirMotion Pro on my youngest. His hair is very knotty and wild, and he doesn't have the tight curls his brother has, so his hair needs brushing more to prevent it forming dreadlocks. He hates anyone touching his head, which makes brushing even more difficult. We were instantly off to a good start - very little snagging and he sat happily and let me try the brush - this is a definite first!
Our youngest is 5 1/2 now, growing up, and he feels he wants independence. Once I'd had a couple of brushes, he did want to try the brush himself. This is where we tend to get a disaster as he rolls the brush into his hair and gets it stuck. He didn't - it brushed through his hair really nicely despite his usual short-armed attempts and we were both delighted.
Obviously curly hair does need more than just brushing, this is not the 1970's and frizz is out, so we wet and slightly mousse his hair to keep it together after brushing.
We've been using the AirMotion Pro brush now for a couple of weeks (including on holiday last week). It is now definitely our hair brush of choice. It works really well on wet or dry hair, doesn't strip the hair, barely pulls and doesn't scratch or tug at the scalp.
At £11.95 the AirMotion Pro is more expensive than your standard cheap brush, but well worth the price tag as far as I'm concerned because we really have had no screeching, whining or crying while brushing, and the results are clear to see. Available in black and white or black and pink.
We were sent our AirMotion Pro brush to review.
