A few weeks ago, my trusty, 10-year-old hair brush broke, and I was expectedly disappointed and unwilling to let go. With much hesitation and after a brief period of mourning (I jest…😆), I welcomed the Widu hair brush into my life, and I’m so glad I did!
I have thick, dry curly/wavy hair that I often blow dry. I have affectionately nicknamed my mane the claw-clip annihilator; it has broken more clips and brushes than I’m willing to admit. I don’t brush my hair often, but when I do, I want a sturdy, gentle brush. How does Widu fare? Surprisingly well! I was afraid that the long pins might not go through my long, thick, often unruly hair, but it does with ease.
- Eco-friendly — made with FSC certified ash wood, natural hornbeam bristles, and natural rubber
- Handmade in Italy
- Naturally hypoallergenic
- Zero-waste — uses biodegradable parts
- Recyclable cardboard packaging
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
- Sturdy and lightweight
- Ponytail-friendly (read: bumpless ponytails are in your future)
- Flexible wooden pins make brushing feel like a head massage
- Circulates excess sebum to hair shaft
- Tackles tangles well ( no rips, no tears)
- I experience significantly less hair fallout — if any — as compared to a boar bristle brush
- Replaceable bristles
- Price — I would say it’s well worth it!
- Unsure of what I’ll do when I run out of replacement pins
- Slight rubbery scent, but it doesn’t transfer to my hair
- I have yet to clean this brush, but that seems pretty straightforward. The directions suggest to use a soft, clean cloth soaked in mild soap and water. I’ll just have to be careful since all the handle and bristles are made of wood.
I imagine this brush will last me many, many years. In fact, it’s one of two that I currently own. All in all, I’m impressed with this brush. If you’re looking for a treat yo’ self gift, I would put this on your list. Quick tip: if you have short hair, choose a brush with short pins, and if you have long hair, choose a brush with longer pins. I purchased mine here:
