Although, I keep trying different cosmetics and skin care products, for some strange reason, I was never keen on trying different types of hair brushes available. So, one fine day, when I saw my friend using a huge wooden paddle brush, I thought I must try it too. I researched a bit and found out that wooden bristle brushes are far better than plastic or nylon ones for your hair. So, I went ahead and purchased one such paddle brush from Vega’s Premium Collection.
Vega medium bamboo wooden paddle brush with round tipped wooden bristles easily penetrates the hair, stimulates and massages the scalp. Its wooden bristles massage and distribute precious oils from the root of the hair to its ends for the maintenance of healthy and beautiful hair.
- Handle designed for greater comfort.
- Well balanced flexible and superior design of bristles.
- Simple design with an emphasis on function.
- Hygienic and easy to clean.
It comes in a simple yet sturdy plastic box. It is a cardboard stand with information of other brushes printed on the back.
My Experience with Vega Premium Collection Large Wooden Paddle Brush:
I have relatively thick hair and normally use a detangling comb instead of the fine bristled comb. I picked up a large brush taking into consideration that I have relatively thick hair. So, when I first used it, I realized that I will have to put some pressure on the brush so that it reaches my scalp. Now, I thought this brush would glide through my hair like butter once I detangle my hair, but I was disappointed to see that it didn’t work the way I expected it to. I don’t think women with fine and thin hair will face this issue.
The bristles of this brush are rounded which massage the scalp and that feels quite relaxing, but like I said earlier, you will have to apply a little pressure. It doesn’t detangle my hair as such. It does make my hair a little more straight but nothing extraordinary. If you have dry and frizzy hair, don’t expect any magic as such.
Now, comes the cleaning part. Oh, I can’t tell you, it is such a headache to clean this brush. The bed of this brush has grid like texture and is white in colour whereas the bristles are light beige in colour. So, the brush, especially the bristles get dirty pretty soon. Since both the bed and bristles are light in colour, it takes a lot of time to clean the brush thoroughly.
Also, there is a vent on the bed of the brush which allows air circulation. Now what happens while cleaning is that the water goes inside this vent and it takes a lot of effort to take that water out of the vent. So as claimed, it is definitely not an easy task to clean this brush. If you experience hair fall, you will have a tough time using this brush as the broken hair wraps around the bristles and it is quite a task to take it off.
So, I would say, it is an average brush which may work well for those with thin hair, but those with curly and thick hair must stay away from this if you are looking for a hassle-free brush.
