Thanko USB-Powered Misting Hairbrush Untangles Unruly Locks
December 11th, 2012
At first glance, I was all prepared to make fun of Thanko’s latest USB-powered product, then I realized it’s genius. If you don’t understand how useful a brush that blows a mist in your hair could be, you obviously don’t have a stubborn eight-year-old girl at home. Apparently, in eight-year-old girl land having parents spray detangler in your hair is about the worst thing that can possibly happen at 6 o’clock in the morning.
I remain convinced that when the sock gnomes get tired of running off with my socks, they spend time rubbing balloons in my daughter’s hair as she sleeps. I’m saying the knots she has in her hair each morning would leave a grizzled sailor scratching his head. Since I’m now banned from using the scissors to remove those knots, this brush might be the perfect solution.
The brush has a battery inside that is charged by a USB port. That battery slurps water out of a tiny plastic container inside the brush head and sprays a mist on your hair as you brush it. While the idea is to use water to hydrate your hair, I think it might work perfectly to create a continuous mist of hair detangler. That plastic container holds 15 mL of fluid and the battery holds the power to spray for two and half hours.
Regardless of what you think of it, it’s infinitely more useful than that USB powered butt chiller Thanko also offers.
