Tresemme Detangle Comb
Advantages: Sturdy, looks nice, gets tangles and knots out, tames hair
I've got very long, thick hair which becomes tangled and knotted ridiculously easily and it is especially knotty in the mornings as I toss and turn in my sleep.
As my hair knots so badly, I find that it is important to brush it through with a sturdy brush, else the bristles become damaged. I currently use a tangle teezer to get the worse out and then I use this comb from Tresemme to get any stubborn knots out. I would never attempt to use this without brushing my hair through first though as the teeth are so strong and sturdy that if you used enough force it would literally rip the knot as well as strands of hair straight out, which I obviously want to avoid!
This is a decent sized comb at around ten inches long and it is a little bigger than my others. It has a sleek, modern design and a long handle which is quite flat meaning it fits perfectly into my brush holder. The handle is a little thick, especially at the bottom but it curves in slightly in the middle part of the handle meaning I am able to grip and hold it securely. I really like that the handle is one that you can grip, rather than just a piece of plastic attatched to the side of the teeth.
There is the white Tresemme logo on the handle which has the brand name and the words 'used by professionals' written underneath. The comb has a generous twenty five long, thick teeth which like the rest of the comb are made of sturdy, glossy black plastic. The teeth are spaced out nicely with a 1cm (ish) gap between each one. The teeth are slightly pointed but have blunt nibs, meaning they are not sharp or painful against my scalp and they will not do any damage if they come into contact with it.
The comb comes attatched to a piece of very thin black plastic. This needs cutting off as it is attatched by a little plastic loop. The comb also has a glossy piece of paper which acts as a label wrapped around the middle of it which has the brand and product name (detangling comb) and it states that the comb is suitable for all hair lengths. The label does not leave any sticky residue on the comb and it can be reycled.
Using the comb is really easy and it helps achieve tangle-free hair within minutes. I simply brush my hair through with my tangle teezer and then run the comb through my hair. When I hit a knot I work the brush through it gently and the knot comes out with the comb. This is not particullary painful and the comb does not pull out any unknotted hair. It only pulls out very stubborn knots and with hair that is simply a little tangled, it does a great job in smoothing it out and taming it.
This is fine to use when I am straightening or blow drying my hair and I find that it works well with both dry and wet hair. The brush itself is easy to clean and I am able to simply pull any bits of hair out of it, and I wash mine every couple of weeks to ensure that it is nice and clean. With an RRP of £5.98, this isn't the cheapest comb available, but the quality does show and it's very durable as well as very effective in detangling my hair quickly - I can't fault it really. Overall, highly reccommended.
Summary: A sturdy detangling comb which I reccommend
