The first I knew of Tangle Teezers was a couple of years ago when one of the kids on the kids camp I was working at had one. But to me it just looked awkward, cheap and painful and I wondered why anyone would ever want to use one! Two years later I’m converted!
Last year my hairbrush needed replacing and although I thought they were incredibly expensive for a hairbrush, I bought a Tangle Teezer Salon Elite off Amazon to give it a try. I’m not quite sure why I chose the Salon Elite over the original, I think I just read that they were supposed to be better and easier to hold.
At first I was unsure, I wasn’t used to having to partition by hair before brushing it, and it sounded like it was ripping my hair out! But I soon got used to it and quickly fell in love! Plus I was amazed at how easily the brush could get tangles and knots out of my long, thick hair.
A couple of months later I decided to buy the Aqua Splash model. Now I know you can use the normal Tangle Teezer in the bath/shower, but I thought I’d give the shower model a try. OK, it does pretty much the same as the normal Tangle Teezer, except this one is easier to grip with wet hands, plus it makes my hair feel so lovely and soft as soon as I use it to brush conditioner through.
My collection does not stop there 😀 I’d been thinking about buying a travel (compact) Tangle Teezer for a while (ever since I went to Norway and my hair got so tangled and I forgot my Tangle Teezer), but I always thought they were really expensive so why bother buying one when I could just buy another one of the normal brushes for cheaper. But just before Christmas Boots had a buy 1 get 1 half price offer on Tangle Teezers so I decided to make use of it.
I haven’t used my little compact Tangle Teezer much as I’ve not really been away anywhere, but on the times that I have used it it does as good a job as the full sized Tangle Teezer and I’m very glad I bought it.
Finally, the last Tangle Teezer in my collection is the Ultimate Finishing Brush. I found this when I was shopping the buy 1 get 1 half price offer in Boots, and it is pretty new so there weren’t many reviews, but I decided to give it a go! I’m not a big fan of the colour, but pink was the only colour that Boots had (Amazon do a black version), but I mean it’s only a hairbrush right?! At first I was concerned about the short looking handle, but this Tangle Teezer is amazing! It has longer bristles and is so comfortable to hold and brushes through my hair so well! I still use the Salon Elite for detangling, but I use this brush to brush my hair through afterwards rather than my normal hairbrush.
Do you use a Tangle Teezer? What do you think of them?
