Advantages: Reduces hair breakages and split ends. Would be great to use with kids
Disadvantages: Sometimes doesn't get all the tangles out of very thick hair
I first came across the tangle teezer when I noticed it in a couple of magazines. The sound of it really appealed to me as I find my hair to be very tangled after washing.
The tangle teezer is a plastic hair brush with flexible teeth. As you can see in the picture above, the brush does not have a handle. It is molded into a shape that makes it fairly easy to pick up and grip while you are brushing your hair.
The tangle teezer RRP's at £10.99 and is sold in Boots and other shops at this price. I picked mine up on eBay for around £9 and it can also be found on Amazon for cheaper than RRP so if you are thinking of buying one, shop around. It does seem expensive for a hair brush but I have used this brush every day for about 3 months now and have noticed no signs of wear or use, so feel I am really getting my money's worth.
The tangle teezer that I have is bright pink. From looking online the product also comes in other colours. I like the pink colour, for the reason that when I am out of the shower in the morning and rushing to get ready for work, it is easy to spot where I have left the brush!
I use this brush on wet and dry hair. I find that it is very gentle on my hair and gets the tangles out without breaking any hairs. I have definitely noticed a reduction in broken hairs nod split ends since I started using this brush. Sometimes I do feel that when my hair is wet, the tangle teezer does not get all the tangles out as my hair is quite thick. I feel the need to separate my hair into layers and brush one bit at a time to effectively get all the tangles out.
The tangle teezer claims to increase shine of your hair. This is one thing that I do not agree with. While it is great for getting out tangles, I have not noticed any increase in shine.
I really like my tangle teezer and think it would be great for kids who hate having their hair brushed.
Thanks for reading and I hope you found my review useful.
Summary: Definitely worth a try if you have tangled, tatty hair
