Tangle Teezer

Tangle Teezer Original in Disco Purple
As far as hair goes, mine isn't too bad, it isn't the long flowing thick locks that I dream of but it is relatively manageable... except for the tangles.  My hair is highlighted and low lighted and thin hair but I have a lot of it and it is a nightmare to brush when wet as the ends get knotted and the root is just not as easy to manipulate and comb through as I would like.  As for when my hair is dry, it is pretty much ok, except for the underneath of my hair that can get knotted and tangled if I haven't straightened my hair and just left it au naturale after washing.  If I wash, add product and blow dry my hair, I hardly notice many problems after the initial wash but I just don't have time to style my hair in this way everyday.  I needed a tool to help as other brushes just damage my hair by pulling at it and snapping it...

I've been using a Tangle Teezer for the last year now and I have recently repurchased an additional one to keep in my gym bag for when I'm dashing out of the shower to get to work and need a quick fix for my hair and for when I've been swimming as my hair is so difficult to get a comb or brush through after I've been in the pool.  I haven't reviewed the Tangle Teezer on my blog before but thought that since I'd repurchased another I better get round to reviewing it as surely the true testament of the love for a product is in the repurchasing?

A Tangle Teezer is a professional detangling hairbrush that is used in hair salons and loved by professional hair dressers.  It has a unique design that fits snugly in the palm of your hand making it really easy to use and the little different sized teeth of the brush are designed to flex and flick through hair without pulling or yanking it.  The design of the Tangle Teezer is supposed to be quite massaging for the scalp too although I don't brush my hair for long enough to feel that benefit!  What I have found is that whenever I brush my hair using the Tangle Teezer, it glides through my hair and doesn't get caught in any tangles.  It gets rid of any knots and tangles that I have without hurting, snapping, breaking and splitting my hair which is what has been the case with other brushes I've used in the past.  Strangely enough, when I brush my hair with the Tangle Teezer after a bath, my hair doesn't retain the water that it used to so it dries quicker too.  It really is brilliant, particularly for use when hair is wet and especially after swimming!  It is perfect for fragile, fine or colour treated hair and great for  those who wear bonded extensions.

These retail for £10.20, I got mine a little cheaper as I bought it from the salon supply shop using my trade card but you can search online for some great deals.

Oh and another thing I love about the Tangle Teezer is that it was originally snubbed on Dragons Den as being a product that wouldn't sell.  How wrong were they!

Have you tried a Tangle Teezer?  What are your thoughts?

  4. I have yet to try Tangle Teezer but I have to admit it sounds like a dream come true! I have long, curly hair and the only time I can untangle it is in the shower after applying conditioner. This sounds like a product every woman should have!
