18 Detangling Hairbrushes That Are Miracle Workers For Every Hair Type
Hair brushes really only have one job, but even the best of them can fall short when you're trying to pass them through a head full of tangles and knots. Moments like these are why everyone should have a detangling brush on hand that's equipped to undo even the toughest of tangles and make the process of styling our hair that much easier. Having the right kind of brush to detangle your hair isn't just necessary because of convenience — it's also a must because using the wrong kind of brush on your hair can leave you susceptible to more damage, breakage, and split ends.
Despite what you might think, this category isn't limited just to your standard paddle brushes.
