More about the Knot Genie . . . 

Although my daughter has straight hair, it is getting long and tangles very easily at the ends, especially after a night of sleep during humid weather.  We always comb her hair out after her bath, but it is usually accompanied by a few OW!'s.  I remember my own straight hair was the same way when I was little.  I also remember how painful it was when my mother tried to comb through those tangles.  I was very curious to try the Knot Genie detangling brush to see if it does what it claims . . . to detangle my daughter's hair without pulling her hair so much that it comes out at the root or breaks.

The Knot Genie's secret is the varying lengths of the teeth on the brush.  I was skeptical because that sounded too simple of a solution to me.  I was proven wrong when we completely brushed our daughter's hair out from root to tip without one complaint.

The Knot Genie is available in 4 colors and retails for $19.99.  You can purchase it from the Knot Genie Online Store or from local hair salons across the country.
