Having long, course, frizz-prone and wavy hair, I always dread brushing my hair after I wash it. Brushing out the waves, especially in the winter, leaves me with nothing but unhealthy looking, frizzy hair. Detangling my hair is my worst nightmare! With a regular hair brush,frizz every time i brushed out my hair, I would find broken hair on the floor because the brush bristles were too harsh and would take a very long time to remove all the knots.
I was extremely pleased to have discovered the Original Tangle Teezer in Plum Delicious. I found that it does not break my hair, and less hair falls out too. The best part: it is gentle and soft on the hair strands, and prevents my hair from becoming frizzy!
The Tangle Teezer might look strange at first, for those of you who have not come across it before, it may look like a brush for pets. But I promise you, it is by far the best tool that has been designed for curly and frizzy hair. It works wonders on super curly hair too and somehow makes the hair soft and silky. The bristles are extremely soft in comparison to most regular brushes. It is light weight and also comes in a smaller size (Compact Styler), perfect for handbags and small travel cases.
Most hairdressers advice against brushing your hair when it is freshly washed, as the hair strands are prone to damage as they are at the weakest when wet. It is also designed to be used on wet hair but as my hair is thick I let it air dry slightly before using the Tangle Teezer to remove all knots. The Tangle Teezer glides through the hair, preventing hair breakage and fall out, and it is also painless. Yes those of you with curly or course hair know the struggle using a regular brush to remove knots in the hair, not only does it take forever, but also is very painful. With the Tangle Teezer, it takes less than half the time to brush your hair and is totally pain-free! There are currently 6 different types of brushes, each with a unique purpose, such as the Aqua Splash, designed for after swimming.
It was difficult for me to actually find any drawback for this product. I have to section my hair to brush it out as the bristles are shorter than regular brushes, but it worth the effort (I just section my hair). The Tangle Teezer does not have a handle like most regular brushes so it may take time getting used to. I personally would not really class these as drawbacks, as i did find ways to work around them.
For £10.60 I would definitely recommend this tool as it saves a lot of time and pain when it comes to brushing those knots out of your hair!
