The Ikoo Brush the best at detangling and smoothing hair - it's so cute too!
When I received the Ikoo Brush to test, I was so impressed by the gorgeous tin packaging and smooth contours of the brush itself. It's probably the coolest hair brush I've ever seen in my life! When I brushed my hair with it though, I found the bristles scratchy compared to my Wet Brush. "James, do you want a new hair brush?" I asked my partner. He shrugged and started brushing his hair with it. And kept on brushing. On and on.
"This is so good!" he said. He loved the feeling of having his scalp massaged. When he finally stopped brushing, I noticed that his hair straightened out and looked impressively smoother. James has coarse hair that tends to go EVERYWHERE (think anime hair) when it gets even just a little bit longer than it should, but the Ikoo brush was able to iron it out nicely. It even looked shinier! Now, I always use it to keep my own wavy, frizzy hair in place! (Whilst sharing it with James because he won't give it back hmp.)
Ikoo is a German brand (but made in China) that has specialty and vegan hair brushes for different purposes. It's available in select Watsons and SM Beauty Stores - one of those brands that maybe you won't take another look at. But their stuff is good. This style is called the Home White in Ocean Breeze and retails for roughly ~P1,200+. The price tag isn't cheap, but so far the Ikoo Brush has been serving me well. I use it everyday, and y'know, I feel like the cost per wear is justified considering how I only use many of my more expensive beauty products occasionally.
Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked. The best way to explain why the Ikoo Brush is so good is this photo:
On the left is what my hair looks like when I wake up in the morning. Seriously, it's a mess. I only use the Wet Brush to comb my hair while it's wet, but it doesn't quite get my hair to look as neat as this. When my hair is dry and jungle-like, the Ikoo saves the day. I love that it tidies up my fine hair without removing volume.
I do wish the bristles are less scratchy, but I've gotten used to it by now and I feel like the tips are less hard on the scalp after regular use. Also, watch out for static in the morning - this complicates my hair brushing routine but isn't difficult to manage.
Overall, I'd say the Ikoo Brush is worth the splurge if you're looking for a good detangling, smoothing brush that even makes your hair look shinier. The price isn't for everyone, certainly, but I feel like it's one of those things you just need to try to see the difference.
