Is your least favorite part of your post-shower routine brushing your wet, tangled hair? You’re certainly not alone. Not only is it painful, but wet hair is also prone to breakage and damage, so tugging at knots with your go-to paddle brush is doing far more harm than good.
If you’re worried about the havoc you’re wreaking on your precious locks, you absolutely need to try the Wet Brush. The cult-favorite brush has nearly 5,000 reviews and a near-perfect 4.7 star rating and what’s more, it’s on sale for just $7.50 (usually it costs around $12).
While the Wet Brush looks like a standard paddle brush at first glance, specialized bristles set these hair tools apart. The soft bristles are made with what the brand calls “intelliflex” technology which can minimize breakage by 45 percent compared to the typical hairbrush. It’s specifically designed for tangled locks, so it won’t pull and hurt your scalp as it gently works through knots.
One five-star reviewer called the brush a “miracle” on their easily-tangled hair.
“I still don't understand what the difference is with this brush, but it just glides so effortlessly through my wet, tangled hair - it's like magic!” they wrote. “After so many years of struggling with my hair and using conditioning sprays to help speed the process - crazy that this brush just goes right through!”
The Wet Brush is particularly helpful for users with curls.
“This is the only brush that goes through with minimal pain and definitely is the fastest from start to finish,” writes one shopper. “This is hands down the best brush I've ever used for detangling and every day use. I've used it for about 3 years now.”
Again and again, Amazon shoppers call this brush a life-changer.
“I have lived too long of my life using just a normal brush and pick to get through my hair after I shower,” writes one fan. “I recently was introduced to the Wet brush and it has literally changed my life. This brush glides right through my wet hair and has made the task of combing my hair so much easier.”
