Sensors inside the brush determine whether hair is dry, damaged, overly tangled or full-on broken, while the app "coaches" you into better technique using accelerometers. Everything is then synced to the Hair Coach app over Bluetooth.

The Hair Coach brush will be available from hair salons and beauty supply stores around the world starting this fall.
