Newest Review: ... this has got the balance just right. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure why the Tangle Teezer works. I think it has something to do with... more
Teezing the knots out was easier than teezing £10 out for a brush !!

Advantages: Looks trendy ~ works well ~ brush at night and you'll have soft hair in the morning.
Disadvantages: Shockingly high price ~ Have to get used to not holding a handle
I first heard about these on Dragons Den a while back, and at first thought it looked like a horse brush and didn't think much of it. I work in a leisure centre, and a few customers (particuarly the dads, bringing their daughters swimming) mentioned that they can't come swimming without packing these brushes as their brilliant for brushing through their daughters wet curls after a swim.
Now my hair isn't majory knotty, however it has gone quite long recently and so I want to keep it in the best condition I can. On a recent trip to Boots were a lot of products were 3 for 2 I decided to take the plunge and grab one. I opted for the pink (which was typical of me) however the color was purely for aestical reasons and has no added benefit other than looking pretty when I whip it out my bag.
Now at £10.99 this was a shocking price, however when I tried the product it does work well, and I think I know why. Heres my complicated explantation; the tangle teezer has approx 1 finger width tooth combs AND half finger width tooth combs. When I used the brush it combed through my hair lovely, with no snagging. The other morning when I had missplaced this brush (how with it being electric pink in color I don't know) but still I grabbed my normal paddle brush instead, and as soon as I got towards the nape of my neck I could feel the snag / knot forming in the brush (and as said earlier I haven't got exceptionally knotty hair either). With the tangle teezer, because their are 2 height levals of 'teeth combs' this is what prevents the knots, were as with conventional brushes it has longer teeth so as you brush your hair, the hairs can can knotted within the long teeth, yet the tangle teezer stops this as in effect your hairs only brushing through half a teeth comb, and it then reaches the other shorter teeth which break up any knots that may begin to form.
The product is ergonomically designed and so fits into the palm of your hand nicely, it's a little strange at first getting used to not holding a hair brush handle, however I easily over come this. The product is British Made also which is a plus factor, it also states to increasingly add noticeable shine; I havent noticed this yet however the main purpose it to get rid of tangles which the product does well.
Summary: A classic british invention that works wonders on long hair
