With delicate textures and curl patterns, detangling textured hair can be a process. We know the best tips for an easier hair day– like wetting your hair and combing from the ends first. But, finding the best tools to do it with may leave you scratching your head. Like many, you might reach for a pack of beauty supply store combs to get through knots, but have you ever tried to use a brush?
Detangling brushes have been going viral for their impressive results on 4C hair. FHI Heat’s UNbrush®, for example, keeps selling out for how quickly it slides through coily knots. It reduces hair breakage thanks to a similar paddle style to the Denman brush. As for the EZ Detangler Pro? The flexi-style prevents you from yanking your curls, while the ergonomic, handheld Tangle Teezer promotes maximum control as you unknot your kinks.
The Felicia Leatherwood Brush, created by celebrity hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood, is another must-try detangler. It was recently redesigned for added flexibility and easier storage. This brush is also perfect for taking down braids. Or, try the classic Denman Brush before you get braids. The brush works to smooth and detangle hair, perfect to use before blowing it out.
Whichever brush you choose, the results can not only transform your beautiful hair, but also how you feel about taking care of it. Below, check out these five must-try detangling brushes to try on your next wash day.
