Tangle Teezer Review

In this post I will be doing a review of one of the best hair tools/brushes that I have ever used. No joke. It’s amazing.

Tangle Teezer Pink back

When I first heard about the tangle teezer I never felt the need to rush out and buy one and didn’t really understand what all the hype was about, it just looked like a cheap plastic brush with an over enthusiastic price tag so it really didn’t interest me at all…

How many times do we get told not to jump to conclusions about products without having tried them? All the time. And do we still do it all the time? All the time.

The reason I mention this is that I say it seemed like a cheap plastic brush…. and I do not retract that statement even now I own one. But at the end of the day, after using it since Christmas (when I got it as a gift) I really do love this brush and would most definitely buy another at £11 a pop.

The brush itself is made of a fairly sturdy plastic, but the brush is hollow so it is really lightweight (I would have preferred it if there was a little more weight in the brush), but the shape is amazing and feels really lovely to hold in your hand when brushing your hair.

The outer side and sides are very smooth and the underside is covered in tiny little soft plastic spikes covering the underside. The spikes are in two layers which I think does really help to smooth the hair.

This brush is recommended for people who have long or thick hair, for those who have very tangled knotted hair, and for using when your hair is wet (as that is when it is at its weakest and most likely to break/snap whilst brushing).

In a sense… it’s a replacement for a wide toothed comb. But it is so so worth it.

This brush, in my experience with this brush and my hair, it really is awesome. It detangles, it smooths, it’s gentle, doesn’t tug or pull, and gets out any/all knots in a matter of seconds.

Since using it my hair seems to stay tangle free for longer (although my hair was never that bad for getting tangled before), it’s smoother and there are definitely less flyaways as my hair obviously isn’t breaking as much – there is also a lot less hair on the brush after use too.

This is now my go-to brush for if my hair is wet, or if I feel it may be more tangled than usual – for example if I have just come inside and it has been windy outside.

Overall, apart from the fact that is feels quite cheap, I really do love this brush and if this ever broke I would be gutted and need to go and get another!

Have you got one of these brushes? Would you like to? They are fabulous!

Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

    I’m so glad you did this review– even though I’ve heard so many people rave about how much they like it, I thought it seemed a little gimmicky & was worried it wouldn’t be worth it, but I think I’ll definitely end up buying one eventually because my hair can get crazy tangled at times!

      That’s what I was like! They always looked so cheap I thought it was a product there was a lot of hype around for no reason…. I only got one as I got it as a gift for Christmas and it’s awesome! Does feel a little cheap in my personal opinion, but does the job and is really doesn’t pull or tug at any tangles! If you do get one, let me know what you think of it! 🙂 x

    I’ve been debating buying one of these for ages, and I just haven’t quite managed to take the plunge. It’s just a little pricey for my student budget – I hate the thought of spending £11 on a brush!

      That’s how I felt, but it’s only a one time purchase and they have some fabulous colours out now too 🙂 it honestly is worth it I feel. Maybe wait for your birthday (depending when it is) and ask for it then? Or save your Boots points! 🙂

      It honestly is. I never would have believed it if I hadn’t been given it as a gift at Christmas time. If you do get one, let me know how you get on with it!

    I was exactly the same! I never really wanted one, because I thought it looked a bit crap to be honest. Butttt, I caved before Christmas and got one and I am sooooo glad that I did! It makes such a difference to brushing your hair, and I hate using my old brush now!

      It’s funny isn’t it! How something you can be so dead set against can soon turn around to be one of the best brushes you own!! I agree it really does make a huge difference though!! 🙂 x

    I’ve seen and heard so many people raving about this but I’ve never got round to buying one myself. This has really made me think I need to go out and get one though!

    I also always said I’d never give in to the hype of a glorified/expensive hairbrush but seriously, I see so many amazing reviews – with yours now included that I’m beyonddd tempted!!

      I doubt I would have ever bought it myself, but now I use it nearly every day – including on dry hair! Really is awesome. Highly recommended 🙂 x
