Technically there are no reflexive verbs. There are verbs that can be used reflexively. Pronominal is the correct term for a verb with the se attached. (that simply means that a reflexive pronoun is used with the verb). There are many pronominal uses of the verb besides being used reflexively: e.g. passively, reciprocally, impersonally, to express completeness, accidentally, suddenly, etc.

Reflexives are used to indicate that the subject of the sentence has done something to his/her/itself. You know that a verb is reflexive by the ending "-se" attached to its infinitive.

peinarse - Me peino el pelo. - I comb my hair.

Reflexive pronouns are me(Yo), te (tú), se (él, ella, usted), nos (nosotros), os (vosotros), and se (ellos, ellas, ustedes).

Paralee has dedicated a whole lesson to reflexive verbs and the morning routine. I suggest checking it out.

yeah that's exactly it. I was about to put that as well. Also, you could put "mi cabello" instead of "pelo" if you want :D
