I tried the £15 'miracle hairbrush' behind Jennifer Aniston's hair

Jennifer Aniston on the cover of InStyle

Celebrity hairstyles are often lauded as the most sought after, which is not surprising really since (the big one’s anyway) rarely do their own hair. On the contrary, it’s coiffed to perfection by a top tier hairdresser such as Chris Appleton, J-Lo’s go-to – or the other Chris (McMillan) Jennifer Aniston’s longtime hairstylist and the creative force behind the ‘Rachel.’

And yet, since Jen (Aniston, not Lopez) launched her own hair product line, LolaVie, we are being treated to a rare glimpse of Aniston’s at-home hair routine as she updates her followers on how she applies said products. The other week she took Instagram to reveal the before and after results from her most recent launch, LolaVie’s Perfecting Leave In conditioner, which she brushed through with the WetBrush Pro Flex dry, a detangling brush that, as it turns out, is a favourite with other follically blessed celebrities like Drew Barrymore, who demonstrated its merits alongside another famed brush, the Mason & Pearson on social media last year, while supermodel Kendall Jenner raved about the original WetBrush way back in 2016. Even the aforementioned celebrity hairdresser, Chris Appleton is a fan, which by default suggests so are his clients J-Lo, Kim K and Dua Lipa.

In the UK, the Tangle Teezer is deemed the detangling hero which I've been using happily for years, therefore I wasn’t expecting the WetBrush to top it, but if Rachel from Friends has one in her kit then who am I to argue?

If I’m honest, if you have thick or full hair (mine is fine but abundant) the Pro Flex Dry edition that Jennifer Aniston uses is quite the buy. Similar to the Tangle Teezer, it is designed in a curve that mimics the shape of your scalp to easily smooth through wet hair, which also cuts down drying time due to its vented back.

What I particularly like about this WetBrush is the ergonomic rubber handle, which makes it easier to grip. The prongs meanwhile are sturdy enough to stimulate your scalp while sparse enough to flow through a thick mane of hair without dragging and pulling, making it suitable for all hair lengths and textures. Though I doubt those with a fine, short hairstyle would benefit as much as someone with Aniston's hair type.

Despite its name, I don’t just use the WetBrush wet, it remains in my bag and on my desk for those times when I need to spruce up my hair before an event as it detangles a stale morning blowdry without disrupting your style.

Of course if you’re craving a smooth silky finish like Adele’s then you’d need a natural bristle brush like a Mason & Pearson – p.s. Kent does a similar version for a more affordable price.

But, honestly, if you’ve got longish hair that is prone to knots and kinks then it’s hard to beat the prowess of this brush for the price – which at £14.99 is less than a nice bottle of Provencal. I’ll be ordering a few for my girlfriends this Xmas – along with a case of French Rose. I know which will last longer.
