1. The Wet Brush

We are taught not to brush our hair while wet, so the name of this brush was kind of confusing to me. But once I brushed through my hair from the roots to the tips, the name was no longer confusing. The best brush specifically designed for wet hair that detangles your knots with ease regardless of your hair type. The bristles of this brush are super thin, flexible and strong and are combing out tangles in your hair effortlessly. Detangling is pain-free due to the flexibility of the bristles; the bristles are so soft they even massage the scalp and stimulate circulation. The Wet Brush glides through the nappy bird nests. It’s the best of both worlds – it’s firm enough for combing through knots and flexible enough to gently massage the scalp. The handle is rubberized, so it’s soft to the touch. Almost 80% of people who bought this hair brush and reviewed it on Amazon have given it 5 stars. The total rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.
