When I was a little girl, detangling my hair was like something straight out of a horror movie. Picture me kicking and screaming while my mom diligently sprayed my hair with detangling mist in the vain hopes it would help the brush get through my curls. Unsurprisingly, I ended up with a giant knot in the back that ended up needing to be chopped off by a hairstylist. It was not a fun experience, but it taught me the importance of investing in a detangling brush that can handle anything I throw at it.
Effective detangling is the only way to make sure that unwanted knots don’t live on our scalps forever, that the products we put in our hair saturate the strands, and that any styling we do is easy and doesn’t damage our hair. Wet hair, in particular, is very fragile, which means you need a gentler brush that doesn’t just rip hairs out at the root. There are a ton of great detangling brushes on the market, but the question is, which one is right for you? Depending on your hair type, goals, and sensitivity, you might need something different. Below, find 10 incredible detangling brushes that can take care of every hair issue that arises and leave you with smooth, silky, tangle-free strands.
