Smoobee, The Magic No Cry Brush for Children Review & Giveaway! Ends 7/10

Smoobee Counter Display

My daughter has sensory issues that stem from her Autism. This includes being VERY sensitive about her hair being brushed. I have purchased so many so called "magic" brushes and while they do work somewhat, they don't seem to be able to brush through many layers of hair at once. Because of this, she would often have "nice" hair on top but underneath, a complete knotty mess. To brush all of it, would take a very long time and it would become exhausting! So between my daughter crying that it hurts because her hair gets into big knots and a mangled mess in 2.1 seconds from just breathing and her crying because I am taking too long, I had begun to lose all hope. That is, until I saw an ad online for the Smoobee No Cry Magic Brush. Could it be what I was searching for all along??

I contacted Smoobee to see if I could do a product review of the brush and they happily agreed.

Pink Smoobee Brush
When it arrived, I noticed that it had a nice handle on it unlike some other "magic" brushes I have used in the past. I need a good grip when brushing my daughters hair. The second thing I noticed was that there were two types of bristles. 

I called my daughter over and told her that her new "magic" brush had arrived, to which she replied "is it going to hurt like the other ones?" I told her it wouldn't hurt so I was hoping for the best!

I brushed out her hair, knots and all, with no issues whatsoever. I was done quickly and when I told her that I was finished, her reply was "wow, that didn't hurt at all, mommy!"

It glides right through her hair and easily through the knots and tangles in her hair. The Smoobee brush has been a true blessing in my home. Not only does it reduce the actual brushing time, my daughter doesn't cry or complain at hair brushing time anymore whatsoever. It even works beautifully on her wet hair after a bath.

Prior to the Smoobee, I was considering taking my daughter to get her hair cut short to reduce the tantrums and the fighting over hair brushing. Now, I have absolutely no reason to get her hair cut at all and in fact, since using the Smoobee, her hair is looking more shiny and healthy than it's ever been!

I seriously cannot say enough great things about this brush. If you have children, you NEED one of these, especially if you have a child(ren) with special needs and/or sensory issues relating to their hair.

As an additional plus, Smoobee offers gem stickers for children to bedazzle their brushes for a custom look. My daughter thought it was so fun to create a custom looking hair brush with the gem stickers. She's so proud of "her" brush that when I try to use it on my hair, she gets upset! :)

Buy It
You can purchase the Smoobee No Cry Brush at their website. They have 3 different color choices available for $19.99 each. They are currently on sale for $15.99! I think the price is excellent considering how fabulous the brush is!

Win It
One lucky reader will win their very own Smoobee brush!

My toddler has very long, curly hair and brushing it out is always hard on her no matter what we do. I'd love to try a new kind of brush made specifically to be gentle and see if that makes hair care a little less stressful for her!

My daughter always has a fit when I brush her hair, but I can't blame her since she inherited my easily tangled hair.

Debbie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My hair is naturally curly and after the days end it ends up in snarls that I hate digging out of my hair. i Want a smobee in hopes that it can detangle my hair with less pain and muss and fuss.

I'd like to win so tangle time with my daughter is not painful for her. Sometimes a tug or pull hurts, even when you're doing your best not to...if I can eliminate that, I'm all for it! Thank you for the giveaway.

I have bought so many brushes for my 5 year old autistic daughter who hates her hair brushed. She has to be held down for us to brush it, and she screams and fights so bad I'm exhausted just trying to comb it and feel so bad for get and underneath are big rats that I can't get out. I have even thought about cutting her hair myself because she won't let anyone touch it. It wouldn't hurt to try this. I will have to look it up. Thanks for the review!
