Knot Genie Brush – The World’s Best Detangling Brush


The Knot Genie brush is completely unrelated to footwear. However, we carry the product at the independent children’s shoe store where I work. Based on the popularity I’ve witnessed of the Knot Genie and its relevance to families with children, I thought I’d give it a shout out via a brief review.

Stop the Foot Stomping and Screaming! Try the Magical Brush

Essentially the Knot Genie brush is a detangling brush that more or less tops the market. Parents love it, especially the part where their kids’ hair gets brushed without kicking, screaming, and tears. The brush works on curly, straight, thick, and thin hair, including hair that seems to have a mind of its own.

STOP Spending Hundreds of Dollars a Year on Hair Products!

The Knot Genie works on both wet and dry hair.  In the case of dry hair, not only does the brush detangle, but it also fulfills the role a hairbrush should, leaving the hair glossy and neat. Cleaning this brush is low-maintenance. The Knot Genie’s gentle and effective design ensures that there is not much breaking, ripping, or pulling of the hair.

At the store where I work, once parents get ready to pay for their children’s shoes at the counter, they always grab a Knot Genie and ask me: Do these really work? I cannot talk from personal experience, but we do sell a ton of them and parents swear by this product. Parents used to tell me stories about how there was a lot of yelling, a lot of screaming, a lot of hiding, running away when a household adult would come out with a brush.

Perhaps you’ve tried detangling shampoo and/or various types of hairbrushes with insufficient success.  The bristles on the Knot Genie vary in alternating lengths, an important design aspect.  Some liken the Knot Genie to an extension of one’s hand going through the hair. People swear by it because it’s pain-free and efficient, an experience that frequently leads to children taking on the responsibility of brushing their hair.


The Best Hair Detangler for Kids and Adults with Sensory Issues

In terms of feedback, we’ve heard repeatedly that sensory-challenged children adore the brush and that people become return customers and buy additional Knot Genies to use on their pets.  The Knot Genie actually now comes in a pet version, the Groom Genie, by all accounts appreciated by pets for the same reasons children (and parents) herald the Knot Genie.

Humbly declared “The World’s Best Detangling Brush,” people fancy themselves insiders to this revolutionary product in the realm of children’s hair maintenance.  The Knot Genie has been passed on through word-of-mouth, but it is also touted in local and national news in the U.S. and occasionally reaching other parts of the world.

If you ever need a pair of everyday, summer, winter, or sport shoes, you can find them all in the tool I created which will let you filter by the type of shoes you need.

I believe this tool will be extremely valuable to you since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide and also tell you exactly how each shoe style is cut (short, long, narrow, or wide). It will also allow you to filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic!

If you are interested in using this tool to find your kids’ shoes you can find it in an article I wrote called:

  1. Hi there Juan,

    What an interesting product this is. I always struggle with my niece’s hair – children’s hair tangled so easily! – during shower and I find adult brushes the least efficient. Usually I would just go straight for the shampoo and use it as a lubricant to ‘untangle’ the hair.

    I am curious to know how this hand-fitted product works in terms of the design and technology? Do you have any product videos that demonstrate this specifically?

    Thank you.

    • Cathy,

      I will be uploading a video explaining how it works!Hopefully that will answer your concerns, Thank you for sharing,

  2. What a helpful article!
    That’s it, I have bookmarked this page especially for my daughter. I always have problems to brush her hair. This little brush can without a doubt change my mood in the morning if you know what I mean:) Because I get really nervous knowing that my daughter will yell at me when brushing her hair. It’s the same story every morning, so I am persuaded that the Knot Genie Brush will help me a lot!
    Thank you very much for this awesome post

    • Daniella,

      My girlfriend daughter used to make the loudest and weirdest noises when she used to brush her hair, one will think she was being tortured. Once she found the Knot Genie she has never gone back to traditional brushes since her daughter doesn’t complain anymore. I know what you are going through and I know the Knot Genie will work for your daughter! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Hey Juan,
    This brush is pretty interesting! I know its for both dry and wet hair but does it work on any type of hair? My hair is wavy and If I didn’t put on the conditioner when I shower, I couldn’t even let my brush inside my hair.

    It gets tangled up and it just sticks there forever. If its too dry I even have to put some oil in my hair in order to comb.

    • The brush works on curly, straight, thick, and thin hair, including hair that seems to have a mind of its own. Let me know how it works out!

  4. Hi. I was looking for some info about shoes for kids with roll-in ankles and I came a cross the Knot Genie instead!
    By luck!
    My grandsons have the finest white shoulder length hair that tangles at a sneeze! After swimming it is a nightmare to try and detangle their hair. We have to use a special detangler spray…yes…we…they can’t spray their own hair (without getting it all over the floor and making it all slippery.)
    Its great to find something that gets them doing it for themselves. I’m glad it comes in blue!

    • Janelle,

      Thank you for sharing. Since you are a grandmother and you have seen your grandsons in action would you say that boys are just born messy? I see it all the time at the store I work for, We have a huge train table and they will grab all the trains drop them on the floor, and then they move to something else. Let me know how the brush works out for them! Best of luck.

  5. Hi Juan,
    I’ve got get one of these!
    My three year old daughter throws a massive tantrum whenever we brush her hair – it’s quite a traumatic experience!
    Any product that would help would be fantastic, she has very thick hair and all the brushes we’ve tried tend to pull at it.
    One tip that has helped is putting her hair in a light braid before bedtime.
    Thanks for the info
    – Luke

    • Luke,

      Don’t we all love those temper tantrums? My girlfriend’s daughter will start screaming and making weird screaming noises, it’s scary. All gone since we got the Knot Genie. Let me know how it works out for your little one.

  6. Hi Juan, Interesting post. my son has curly hair and doesn’t want a hair cut or me to brush it either. I used different detanglers without much success. The Genie Knot Brush looks promising. I understand it doesn’t hurt so its a good one for my boy. I’ll bookmark your page.

    • Jessica,

      People swear by this product and I believe it will help your son since it is pain-free and efficient, an experience that hopefully will lead your son on the responsibility of brushing his own hair. Good luck!
