Booheads Updated Review
I recently bought the new updated version of my beloved “Soniboo” Booheads that I reviewed here last year.
There have been some notable if tiny tweaks to the design which I think have really improved the user experience, so I just wanted to drop by and let y’all know!
New & improved design
Firstly, the gap! A thing that really irritated me with my first round of Booheads is that there was a sizeable gap where the head and the toothbrush meet which was not there when I still used the official Sonicare plastic heads. This looked a bit rubbish and collected toothpaste goo like a mofo. They have fixed it and Booheads now fit the same as the ‘official’ ones.
Secondly, a thing I didn’t mention in my original review is the hole in the bottom of the head is a hexagon shape. The (bio)plastic cap inside would sometimes twizzle around, and when I came to remove the head for cleaning or travel, sometimes it would go back on wonky. This has been changed and the hole inside is now D shaped to match the attachment spike thingy on the brush, so the head always goes back on straight.
Lastly, there’s a chance I’m imagining it, but the brush shape and neck appear to have been refined and feel smaller and more comfortable in my mouth. I recently switched back to Booheads after using the last plastic head I had left and did find that the bamboo does take a little bit of adjusting to as it rubbed the corners of my mouth, but I quickly got used to that. Also over time, the bamboo can become naturally rough which just means it’s time to change heads.
Booheads have all the info you need about how to dispose of their brush heads in the most eco-friendly way over on their website here.
The prices have gone up a bit with a box of four heads now costing £14.99 on the Booheads site which is £5 more than I paid for the same last year. You could choose to pick up a pack of two for £7.59 instead if you want to try them out first.
Regardless of the price, this is a product I would not be without.
Keep up the good work, Booheads!
