FYI: You're Brushing Your Hair All Wrong
Upgrade your styling routine with these top hair tools that de-frizz, detangle, smooth and more
The Damage: Brushing your hair while its wet is a huge no-no. "When your hair is wet, it gets more like elastic, and, like a rubber band, it'll eventually snap when pulled or yanked," says Flowers.
The fix: The Wet Brush
How it helps: The bristles on this brush are thin, strong and very flexible, but rapid recovery memory helps each bristle bounce back into place, which decreases your detangling time. Flowers also recommends adding a generous amount of conditioner to your hair as you detangle, always starting at the ends and working your way up to your roots.
