You can really never go wrong with a wide-tooth comb. The wider spaces between the teeth make for very gentle and stress-free detangling. It’s gentle on curls and allows you to detangle quickly — without the pain.

A good paddle brush

I’m a big fan of the Drybar Super Lemon Drop Daily Detangler Brush for a number of reasons. It’s great for detangling wet curls but you can also use it for dry styling. The flexible bristles work through tangles and knots without pulling or tugging at your hair.

The Tangle Teezer

I have to admit, when I first heard that the Tangle Teezer worked wonders on detangling thick and curly hair — I had my doubts. But apparently this brush, known as the holy grail of detangling brushes, has a version specifically designed for textured strands. The two tiers and memory flex bristles work to gently glide through knots leaving curls smooth and soft without the breakage.

The Wet Brush


This brush is most used in the shower to help detangle wet and freshly washed and conditioned hair. It features intelliFlex bristles that make it easy to glide without pulling or breakage. Apparently it’s so gentle you can even use it on extensions or wigs.

Ouidad Double Detangling Comb


This comb has become especially popular in the natural hair community. Its double rows of teeth helps get through thicker hair that might be more prone to knots and tangling but without the aggressive tugging or damage. It’s a little on the pricey side but worth it especially if you have 4A curls or tighter.
