Getting ready for your day can be a challenge, especially if you’re prone to running behind in the mornings. I tend to shower at night, but am still guilty of rushing my hair care routine by brushing it while wet - a big no-no according to stylists. 

Since hair is weakest when wet, pulling at knots can cause it to stretch and snap like a rubber band, leading to breakage and split ends. If you’ve ever struggled to get a comb through wet hair (I know I have) then you may want to take note of one affordable detangling brush that’s revolutionizing hair care.

The Classic Wet Brush has managed to solve the problem of detangling wet hair, thanks to its flexible bristles that are gentle on damp tresses. Its soft bristles are flexible enough to gently detangle hair, while protecting against breakage and split ends.

Suitable for nearly every hair texture and length, the Wet Brush also features rounded tips on each bristle, which help to massage the scalp and stimulate circulation at the follicle, encouraging healthy hair growth. 

With a 4.6 star rating from more than 3,000 reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca combined, this affordable hairbrush has racked up thousands of positive reviews from shoppers impressed with its performance. 

I’ve been using a Wet Brush for the last few months and it’s been a great addition to my low-maintenance haircare routine, ensuring that even on nights when I head to bed with wet hair I don’t have to deal with a tangled mess when I wake up.

One reviewer raved about the Wet Brush’s top-notch detangling, admitting that everyone in their family has become a fan. 

“It seems very light and like it couldn't do much but it runs through knotty hair like a hot knife through butter,” they shared. “No more complaints from the kids!” 

“Great quality, great price, and especially great for tangly long hair,” echoed another repeat customer. “I will never buy another type of brush ever again, Wet Brush is the way to go.”

Although the classic brush is available in solid black, it also comes in many other fun colours and patterns to make hair brushing feel less like a chore, any time of the day.
