Why You Might Be Damaging Your Post-Shower Tresses

If you thought all you needed for your hair-washing regimen was shampoo and conditioner, it’s time to reevaluate. One oft-overlooked but key follow-up tool is a detangling wet brush, built specifically for post-shower locks. Before you guffaw at the thought of adding yet another gadget to your arsenal (we know, vanity space is precious), consider why this one is particularly important. The teeth are fixed to glide through damp hair without snagging or breaking it, and the shape is designed to evenly distribute product—ideal for properly nourishing your strands with whatever hydrating serum or styling potion you prefer to use. Here, three Team Zoe–approved wet brushes to consider for keeping your mane in tip-top shape.
