Tangle Teezer review
Friday, September 12, 2014
When I first heard about the "revolutionary" Tangle Teezer hairbrush, I was very skeptical. How innovative could you really get with a hairbrush? They've basically looked the same for all time haven't they? Well, consider me wrong because as you'll read, the Tangle Teezer isn't what it may seem.
Winner of the 2010 Cosmopolitan Beauty Award and the 2013 Allure Best Of Beauty award, the Tangle Teezer is designed to gently and thoroughly detangle even the toughest knots on any hair type. Flexible teeth bend so that the comb doesn't pull on tangles while still providing enough grip to pull out knots. The Tangle Teezer is designed for all hair types, including afros, and can even be used on wigs!
Price & Packaging
For $14.99 via Nail Polish Canada, this brush comes in a plain clear plastic box as seen above. The brush itself is curved a bit like a bean to make it easier to hold in your hand. It kinda reminds me of a dog grooming brush, but with a more ergonomic feel. I still wished it was a little narrower as it was a teeny bit too wide for my small hands to hold it comfortably. It's a great size though for travel and I packed it with me recently on my Vegas trip.
As the claims say, the bristles on this brush feel ever so slightly softer than normal synthetic brushes. When pulling it through wet or dry hair, the Tangle Teezer pulls out knots quickly without any yanking whatsoever. You can kinda feel the bristles bending slightly when the brush hits a knot and while I was worried they were bending too much to detangle, the Tangle Teezer somehow managed to get right in there and eliminate that knot. To be fair, I do have to note that my hair doesn't get huge knarly knots like some people, but rather just a ton of small little knots throughout, but overall I still was quite pleased with my results. When I used this brush in Vegas, it helped my hair brush out quicker than normal, but it didn't prevent static in the dry desert air.
Buy - works great, comes in a variety of colors, and helps give you smooth, knot-free hair.
