From inside a mother’s head to the mother of detangling brushes
Knot Genie Detangling Brush for Kids and All Hair Types
When I created the Knot Genie detangling brush, my vision wasn’t worldwide recognition, being featured on the Today Show, or being written about by thousands of bloggers. It all started because I was frustrated – I was done spending hundreds of dollars a year on hair products in my attempt to tame my three daughters’ different and unruly hair types. I still have vivid memories of running away from my mother’s hairbrush, which led to a childhood with chopped off hair and people thinking I was a boy because my name is Rikki!
I was determined to create better memories for my daughters. I wanted to develop a quality detangling brush that would detangle unruly hair and bring more peace to our home. With this vision and the help of a few product designers, the Knot Genie was born!
Finally, a detangling product that does what it says it will – helping to not only detangle hair, but also to increase children’s independence. A brush that is effective, yet gentle enough that even children with sensory issues want to use it. A product that has gone from a means to help children to one that adults and hair styling professionals can’t live without. My goal is to continue to strengthen the bonds between parent, child, and one’s self by building confidence and independence.
Sincerely, Rikki Mor, Founder of Knot Genie
The magic trick behind the Knot Genie and Teeny Geenie 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 the right amount, to gently untangle hair. And because of the inherent lack of stress, the cuticle of each hair stays unharmed. The result is the smoothest, shiniest and tangle free hair you’ve ever seen.
The fact that the Knot Genie isn’t like a traditional hair brush goes way beyond the bristle side. Its unique cloud-shaped top fits the palm nicely, whether you are right or left handed which means it feels more like an extension of your hand than a grooming tool. It also means the brushing process is far more comfortable, gentle, and most importantly, done quickly. Voila!
