Detangling wet thick hair is a pain. It can take forever to get our towel-dried hair silky smooth, so we hit the streets to find the perfect solution to this daily problem. We found Lindsey Benfield, a writer, who says she can’t go a day without using The Wet Brush. In just a few minutes her shower wet hair is tangle-free and ready for styling. What we love most about this tiny travel brush is how affordable it is. Found at your local drugstore or supermarket, The Wet Brush is sure to be your most prized possession.

I don’t think I’ll ever go back to using another brush again.”
