Why is it a good deal? 💰

You can't put a price on great hair, but if you have to, this brush is a steal. We advise adding it to your cart while it's still 40% off for the holiday — after all, you'll need a good detangling brush for swimming for the rest of summer!

Why do I need this? 🤔

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends tugging on your hair as little as possible to prevent damage, especially for those with thinning hair. Tugging can cause break stands, or even worse, pull them out of your scalp. Products like leave-in conditioners can help, but gentle detangling brushes do your mane a favor by minimizing damage in the first place.

This brush features a cone-shaped bristle pattern that gently untangles snarls so you don't damage your hair or hurt your scalp. The ergonomic handle is comfortable to hold while you're tackling tangles.

What reviewers say 💬

Amazon shoppers can't get enough of this brush — it has more than 60,000 perfect five-star ratings.

"Oh. My. Gosh," wrote a stunned shopper. "I've had the finest, flyaway, straw-straight hair since birth. My mother forced me into a pixie cut when I was a very small child! She and even my sisters have always had easier hair and less sensitive scalps. No matter what I have tried before now, it's been a struggle to either brush or comb it, dry or wet, conditioner or no, and now that I'm in my 60s, I was worried when it would start to thin out merely from trying to pull it into a scrunchie. Sometimes I haven't even tried to comb or brush, just washed and conditioned it and gathered it into the scrunchie loosely. No need to now! This Crave glide-through brush did not pull at all when gently brushed through my hair, which had not been untangled after a shower the day before yesterday. Only wish I'd known about this before now!"

"This is the best hairbrush I've ever used," another rave reviewer said. "It's so easy to brush through my thin, long and easily tangled hair. I shed and damage way less hair while brushing! I even bought one for my cats."

"I'm an older woman, my daughter told me about this brush, so I finally broke down and bought one," a grateful shopper shared. "I'm so glad I did, because there is less hair going in the trash whenever I brush ... especially after shampooing. I bought a second one for the second bathroom."

Cons 👎

A few shoppers say the handle could use a little tweaking.

"This is the only brush that I have found that works for my knotty, long hair," a five-star fan wrote. "The only con I can think of is that I wish it had a regular handle with a rubber grip on it — if you get any hair product on your hands, it can be tricky to hold onto, but that is totally minor when compared to how it has made it possible to care for difficult hair!"

"Brushes through tangles with ease," said another user. They added this note, however: "The handle can be awkward to grip when trying to brush at certain angles."

Sensitive scalp? This brush has flexible cone-shaped bristles designed not to pull on strands.
