Advantages: Affordable, compact, robust and saves pain!
I've been blessed / cursed (delete as you feel appropriate depending on your hair style and therefore your level of envy / sympathy) with thick and rather curly hair. Most of the time I quite like it really but I don't enjoy the detangling process that takes place after every shower! While on a recent flight I was browsing the in flight magazine and saw the brightly coloured tangle teezer and decided to splash out the ten pound cost in the hope of solving my knotty hair issues forever!
The tangle teezer I chose came in a bright tangerine orange (no chance of loosing this at the bottom of my case) and is very light as it's made of plastic. It's a rather odd shape as it's designed to fit into the palm of your hand and doesn't have a handle like most brushes. The bristles seem quite flimsy and thin in a sense which did worry me initially as I thought they'd all be broken in no time! The tangle teezer promises to glide through wet hair with no pulling, tugging or yanking...
Sounds too good to be true! I tested it out the night I got home after washing my hair as normal... I placed the brush on the roots of my hair and prepared for the imminent pain... However the tangle teezer simply swept through my hair without a single pull or knot. It took me about fifteen seconds to thoroughly brush my hair several times, compared to about a minute complete with grunting and yelping! This was an absolute joy to use and it is better than any other brush or comb.
The original tangle teezer comes in a variety of bright colours (black, blue, pink, purple and tangerine). They seem to be priced between the £10 and £12 mark from what I've seen which seems a very decent price for such an excellent accessory. The inventor, Shaun P, actually found his fame on the television programme Dragons'' Den which shows a real success story in my opinion. He's got a few other products in the range including some mini tangle teezers, ideal for a stocking filler this year!
Thanks for reading.
Summary: A hair brush which fits into the palm of your hand and glides through your hair.
