Don’t you wish you had your own greenscreen fluffers? They’re the invisible green ninjas flipping and tossing the model’s hair in shampoo commercials. They’d be so handy on those bad hair days!
But as unreal as it is to have picture-perfect hair that flips flawlessly over to one shoulder with one flick of the wrist, it’s achievable to attain the same shine and softness without sitting through 20 hours of a hair makeover to shoot an ad. The secret is in your hair brush (and how many times you use it). Check out these 8 brushes to motivate you to brush your hair a good few minutes at least once a day.

CHRISTOPHE ROBIN Detangling Boar Bristle Hairbrush
As a long-haired person, the first thing to learn about caring for your hair is to not brush it harshly after getting it wet in the shower.

Your hair will thank you for it.
