Whether you’re in a rush to get yourself out the door or trying to style the perfect pony for your daughter, there’s truly nothing more frustrating than tangled, knotty hair that won’t cooperate—plus, it hurts. That’s where detangling hair brushes come in. They’re specifically designed to glide through snarly hair, leaving it smooth and knot-free. If you’re still using a regular brush, you’re seriously missing out. Don’t worry, there’s always time to make the switch. Here are three of our favorite detangling hairbrushes that have revolutionized our morning routine.

Editors’ Pick: Wet Brush Pro Detangle Hair Brush

The Facts:

  • Ergonomically designed handle for comfortable grip
  • Flexible IntelliFlex bristles
  • Works on both wet and dry hair

PSA: If you’ve been brushing through your damp post-shower hair with just any old hairbrush, you’re likely causing damage to your delicate strands. Seriously, please stop. Most brushes aren’t designed for this and will cause breakage. Luckily, the wet brush is different. As its name implies, it was specifically created to comb through wet hair, leaving it smooth and tangle-free when it dries. “I purchased my first Wet Brush a few years ago, and I’ve never looked back. It leaves my hair feeling sleek, smooth, and manageable,” one PureWow editor gushes.

Best Value: Layla & Dawn Hair Detangler

The Facts:

  • Thin bristles separate each piece of hair
  • Massages scalp as you brush
  • Comfortable rubber-coated handle

At only $5, how could you not give this brush a test run? Much like the Wet Brush, its bristles are designed to sweep through both wet and dry hair without causing breakage. And even better, each bristle has a small bead at the end, which helps to massage your scalp and stimulate circulation to your hair follicles as you brush. Not only does this feel amazing, but increasing circulation to the follicles is known to promote healthy hair. It’s a win-win.

Splurge-worthy: Belula Boar Bristle Hair Brush

The Facts:

  • Works for all hair types
  • Unique combination of boar and nylon bristles
  • Comes with wooden comb to detangle wet hair

Boar bristle brushes are known for leaving your hair smooth, shiny and healthy. That’s because they redistribute natural oils from your scalp along your strands, working as a natural anti-frizz serum to make your hair soft and conditioned. This pick does just that and also detangles thanks to its nylon bristles. Belula boasts that you can use it regardless of your hair type and texture, making it a smart choice for just about everyone.
