    *ooh ahhs*

    It's made with ~IntelliFlex bristles~ that detangles all hair types, wet or dry, without pulling or tugging. And since you're using less force to comb through, the Wet Brush Pro also minimizes the effects of breakage and split ends!! Win, win win.

    Your hair is already at its weakest point when wet, so the last thing you want to do is rip through your knots. The Wet Brush loosens those knots up for ya with little pull on your part. Imagine brushing through butter, in which the butter is your hair. That's what using the this feels like.

    If you don't believe me, let me direct to a slice of customer review heaven: Across a whopping 3.7k reviews, the Wet Brush Pro has an average rating of 4.6 stars, with 80% being five-star reviews. And so many reviewers write "miracle" in the reviews themselves. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.,

    It's great for children and adults alike! Read on for some happy, happy customer reviews:

    "Most people probably think a brush is just a brush. However, if you're like me and have long, often knotty hair, you know not all brushes are created equal. Most brushes induce tears at some point, even with a detangler spray, so it is safe to say I don't look forward to this process after my showers. I ended up with this Wet Brush, and it wins hands down. I don't feel a thing when brushing my hair, when it's wet or dry. I can't even explain how this brush works, but all I know is that it's a miracle. I'm planning to buy two or three more just so I never am without it." —Sara

    "This brush has been a miracle for my daughter and me. With her very long, straight, and fine hair we were always struggling with knots, tangles, etc. She has a sensitive scalp too, so all that pulling was painful. The longer her hair got, the more knots appeared. I've bought so many different brushes to try to address this issue, not to mention detangler sprays and treatments, but her hair just seemed to be getting worse. A family member happened to use their Wet Brush on my daughter's hair, and voila! It's like her hair magically became manageable, finally! Now, there is no pulling, no more knots, and her hair even appears shinier. I'm blown away at what this simple brush can do." —Skylamor

    Curly hair? Kids who normally run at the sight of you holding a hair brush? No problem, 'cause they won't feel a thing!

    "I LOVE this brush! I'm guilty of using the same flat brush I've used for more than 15 years, but I took a chance and bought the Wet Brush, and I am so impressed with it. For my curly hair, my routine consists of washing/conditioning, wringing it out to get rid of excess moisture, brushing it with my Wet Brush, and then using a microfiber towel like the Turbie Twist. This combo works perfectly to keep my curls soft but well defined." —Amazon Customer

    Post-pool, chlorine-soaked hair? Bedhead from tossing and turning throughout the night? The Wet Brush Pro's got those handled too.

    Promising review: "My daughters have long hair that constantly gets tangled and knotted from sleeping, wearing hoodies/jackets, playing outside, swimming in the pool...seriously, it's a constant battle. Imagine huge, thick, and nestlike knots — you start considering what's easier, working your way through the knot, or grabbing the scissors? One daughter also has a very sensitive head. Then someone recommended the Wet Brush, which has been a miracle. We now own four of them. They work on wet hair right out of the shower, in the morning after they've slept with wet hair, on dry hair — really any time. What used to be a situation of pain and agony turned into a much more pleasant situation. I have also been pleasantly surprised by the durability of the brush. I've experienced the rubber tips from other similar brushes falling off, or melting from a blow dryer, resulting in pointing metal ends. This has never been the case with the Wet Brush. Oh, and it's a time saver. Trying to get these knots out with a regular brush could take me 45 mins. Now it's 10 at the absolute most." —MN Mom

    So don't delay, hurry yourself and snag one from Amazon for $6.87+ (available in 10 colors/patterns).

    You can also get the *original* Web Brush from Amazon for $7.28+ (available in four colors)!

    P.S. Invisibobbles are also GREAT for avoiding tangled hair that can result from the usual super-tight and dent-forming hairtie suspects. And Invisibobbles don't pull out as much hair compared to those, if any at all! Which is why I exclusively wear Invisibobbles and scrunchies nowadays — check out my full review (it's #6)!

    And if you're looking for a foldable/travel-friendly or smaller/kid-friendly version, they've got those too!

    @wetbrushthailand / Via, @thewetbrush / Via

    (Studies have not yet been executed for stuffed animal grooming.)

    Get the foldable one for $8.90+ (available in three colors) and the small, kid-friendly size for $6.99+ (available in three colors).

    Your hair will be so smooth, tangle-free, and shiny. I bet Sailor Moon also uses a Wet Brush. 😉
