Tangle Teezer Salon Elite Brush, $21

We first spied this on the shelves at our main babe Bambi Northwood-Blythe’s house and were instantly intrigued by its, ugh, strange shape. But once we probed further and learnt it’s the absolute master of taming those stubborn bird’s nests that brew under your long locks between washes, we wanted in on the action.

The trick? The evenly-spaced teeth slip in between strands with ease, and unravel the damage with minimal pulling (read pain) at the roots. It’s kind of like a wide tooth comb slash brush that just glides on through. This means less breakage, no knots and happier hair all round (without that whispy, silky soft baby hair you usually get when freshly-brushed).

And through wet, salty hair? An absolute dream. Beach babes take note.
