The magic trick behind the Knot Genie™ is one we are happy to reveal. It all has to do with the different lengths of teeth on the brush. When brushing, they bend just right, to gently untangle the hair. And because of this lack of stress, the hair's cuticle stays unharmed... revealing the smoothest, shiniest hair you've ever seen.
Handles like a dream. The fact that The Knot Genie isn't like traditional hair brushes goes way beyond the bristle side. Its unique cloud-shaped top fits the palm nicely, whether you're right or left handed. Which means it feels more like an extension of your hand than a grooming tool. And also means the brushing process is far more comfortable, gentle, and most importantly, done quickly. Voila!
Your life is going to get abundantly easier just by using a Knot Genie. Here are some ideas and hair-type specific tricks to make it easier still.
1) Conditioner helps. Just like lock lubricant helps a frozen lock, conditioner helps the Knot Genie undo knots and tangles. Condition after washing, and then rub a bit of conditioner between your hands and work through wet hair before brushing.
2) Go easy on shampoo. The better the hair's condition, the easier it will be to brush — even with your Knot Genie. So when working with hair that needs to be "washed" every day (like curly hair that can only be brushed wet), use shampoo only every few days and "wash" with conditioner the others.
3) Start small go slowly. Hair that is extremely hard to brush (especially long or curly hair) should be sectioned before brushing. Use your fingers to separate a section at a time and then begin brushing against your hand, starting at the ends and working up to the roots. This will let you apply extra untangling pressure to the knots, without pulling the hair.
4) Dry or wet? Thick, straight or wavy hair will shine beautifully after brushing wet or dry. But don't ever brush curly hair with any brush, including the Knot Genie. Unless, of course, you're going for that Bozo look.
Q: Does this brush work on ethnic hair?
A from Rikki (the mom inventor): We have recieved many comments and feedback from parents who have children with ethnic hair. It appears our brush has worked its’ magic for them and they love our brush. : )
We were also asked to be a sponsor of the BET awards SWAG BAG which we participated in and even today, the founder of Natural-hair-care-info.com contacted us to do a blog review of our brush.
