One of my very first introductions to hair products was Johnson's Kids No More Tangles Spray-on Detangler. My extra thick, long hair wouldn't go a day without several spritzes of it before doing approximately 5,000 brush strokes à la Marcia Brady. As I got older (and lazier) I abandoned this step in my routine to focus on heat styling and products for after my hair is already done. But, as I've learned more from hair stylists I've realized what you do to prep before styling is crucial—especially if you have a tendency to recklessly knot your hair up in a struggle bun daily. Ahead, shop detangling sprays, brushes, and combs to suit every need.
For Stopping Flakes
There's a reason Pinterest is rife with DIY hair treatments using apple cider vinegar—the ingredient is popular for naturally eradicating dandruff as well as adding shine. For those of you who don't have the time to create your own products at home, this detangling spray is an easy alternative.
