My Shocking Experience With The KareCo Tangle Buster Brush!

In Partnership with KareCo

We talked to Rashida from TX and here’s what she had to say:

Q
Tell us about your hair + hair care routine.

A
The first thing I will do with my hair is probably to get a haircut. My hair is in sort of a flat top with a high fade. I am an African American woman with black, coarse hair. So, getting a haircut would be first because it makes the process of managing my hair easier. When I get my hair cut, I cut off the extremely coarse hair and leave the hair that is less coarse on the top of my hair and style it. Then, I will wash my hair in the shower to wash out any extra clippings. I will wash my hair with shampoo, first, then I will usually detangle it in the shower with a wide-toothed comb. Then I will apply conditioner and then I shower. Once I've finished showering, I rinse the conditioner out. Then I get out of the shower and pat dry my hair so that it is still a little damp. Once I do that, I detangle some more of it if needed. Then I will add some leave-in conditioners and style my hair according to whatever style I would like to have. I usually leave this style up for a week or two and that style may just be braids or a temporary braid so I can do a "braid out" style which just makes my hair a soft, curly texture. Or, I will just style with Bobbi pins. I'll repeat this process every two to four weeks.
Q
Tell us about your experience with the KareCo Tangle Buster Brush.

A
After buying this brush, I started my normal hair care routine (without the haircut) and I used the KareCo Tangle Buster in place of my normal wide-tooth one that I use during my washing process. This brush was AMAZING on wet hair!! I used this product on my wet hair because being a black person with coarse hair, it just isn't smart to brush your hair dry! It should always be wet before detangling! To be honest, I doubted the brush's ability to detangle my hair because it didn't look like it was for my coarse-hair type. The description made me think it was for those with straight hair. I was very much mistaken!! The brush smoothly went through my hair and very easily! The time and effort to detangle my hair was extremely minimized compared to how long and the amount of effort it usually takes to detangle my hair. And surprisingly, my hair being super detangled after using the Tangle Buster helped in the styling process. I was able to wet, detangle, and style my hair in 25 minutes! This process usually takes at least 15 minutes longer than that! My favorite thing about the brush is probably that it helped to save me time! Also, the brush felt amazing on my scalp! Looking at the design of the brush, I initially thought it would be difficult to clean. Surprisingly, it wasn't that challenging at all. It wasn't as easy as some other brushes that I use that don't move, but it was much easier than I expected it to be. I plan on making this a normal part of my washing and possibly even a part of my styling process! I was pretty impressed!
Q
Where do you get your hair inspiration?

A
I use Instagram mainly to get inspiration for my hair. Pinterest helps also if I can find my hair type. That's the challenging part. My hairstyles are mainly inspired by a Christian Hip Hop artist's wife. Her Instagram handle is @tobecallsmefat.
Q
Who would you recommend a KareCo Tangle Buster Brush to?

A
I'd recommend it to my friends that have children with hair that is similar to mine, especially those whose children are 5 and under and have sensitive or tender scalps. I think the kids would find the design of the brush to be interesting and cool, which may help the young girls to want to get their hair done. Additionally, the brush is actually very soothing to use. I'd also recommend it to someone who is an adult like me and fairly new to managing natural hair.
Q
What was your favorite design element of the KareCo Tangle Buster Brush?

A
The easy glide ionic bristles were my favorite! Theu did glide very easily and felt very soothing on my scalp.
My experience using KareCo's Tangle Buster Brush left me extremely satisfied because it made my curly hair very manageable, very fast!
