But before we share the video with you….  we’d like to introduce Blended Beauty to you!  Here’s what their about page says:

Blended Beauty hair care products were designed specifically for the needs of those with dry, wavy, curly, kinky, and relaxed or heat-straightened hair. All products are produced in Canada.

Our main goal is to provide superior quality products that beautify the look of the hair but also nourish the hair from the inside out, promoting healthy growth and diminishing breakage. All our products are formulated with naturally derived ingredients and are between 98%-99% natural.

Our mission is to encourage those with curly hair, to realize its beauty and embrace it. Whatever your hair type is, you can wear it natural and love it. Chemicals, petroleum, mineral oil, and relaxing can be a thing of the past, on a Blended Beauty regimen. Our suggestions for promoting great hair have been laid out on the hair tips page for the benefit of our customers.

Review: The Knot Genie Brush

It’s time to do another review!!!  And this time it’s a very special review….  if you remember my last post you will recall the quick blurb about a home movie…  well for this review I got my sister Havilah to review it in video/Vlog form.   But first my thoughts…

What is the Knot Genie?

I found out about the Knot Genie while reading a mom’s blog about brushing her daughters hair and how she really liked it for detangling knotted hair with no tears!

From the website, here’s a little about how the Knot Genie Hairbrush works:


“The magic trick behind the Knot Genie™ and Teeny 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.”

Thoughts Pros & Cons

Pro: I was quite surprised to find that such a funny, little hairbrush could work so well!  It really does remove knots (with no tears) and it’s simple enough that Havilah can brush her hair on her own!

Con: The teeth on the brush seem to be rather weak.  I also would prefer a brush with a handle….  which I just discovered Knot Genie is now carrying. 🙂

Over all, I think it’s a great brush!  I especially think it works best for Havilah when she has lotion in her hair or when it’s wet.

Where can I find the Knot Genie?
