Tangle Teezer Review

I’ve been growing my hair for a couple of years now and the longer it gets the tanglier and more brittle it becomes. I spend a lot of time and money on conditioning treatments for my hair but I still find it falls out and breaks a lot so I finally jumped on the Tangle Teezer  bandwagon to see if they are really worth the hype.

I really wasn’t interested in Tangle Teezers when they came out, in fact I remember chuckling away at Duncan Bannatyne on Dragons Den when he dismissed them as a ‘hair-brained idea’ and declared himself out! The plastic look and range of colours didn’t appeal to me and I just thought they looked awkward to hold and a bit of a rip off for the asking price £10.20.
However, the hype surrounding them has just not gone away and so my curiosity eventually got the better of me, I mean people wouldn’t rave about them if they were rubbish would they? And after a little bit of research I found out that not only are they used in professional salons but they have been named in a whole host of beauty and hair awards including Grazia best in beauty, Harpers bazaar beauty hot 100, Cosmopolitan beauty awards and Your Hair best hair buys and they are the bestselling hairbrush in the UK!

I have to say that now I have given it a try I am a total convert! Fickle I know. This is another case of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ because yes, I still don’t think it is the most stylish hair tool in the world, but wow does it live up to its name! And although it looks like it would be awkward to use considering the lack of a handle, it actually sits comfortably in the palm of your hand and is very light weight.

So how does it work? It’s all in the teeth, they are designed and spaced in such a way that they glide through the hair with very little pulling or tugging and therefore very little breakage. They are flexible and so they move with the hair meaning that the Tangle Teezer is incredibly gentle on even the most vulnerable or wet hair.

The only thing to note is that it can’t be used with heat stylers so I tend to brush my wet hair through with this and then use my paddle brush with my heat appliances.
What do you guys think? Do you have one? If you have been sitting on the fence like me on this one, do your hair a massive favour and go and get one! 


  1. I would be bald if it wasn't for this beauty! My hair is really thick, when my hair is dry the bristles don't even touch my scalp but this is the only thing I can get through my hair when it's wet.

    1. They are fab on wet hair, the difference in breakage is unbelievable! I'm so glad i eventually caved in and got one :) x

  2. Looks cool but definitely a no no for my afro textured hair!

    Black and Vanilla

    1. Are there any equivalent tools for afro hair? x

  3. oh wow sounds like a great tool :D

  4. It really is, don't know why i resisted for so long now! x

  5. I have one of these! LIFE SAVER! x

  6. It's your blog that made this beauty a definite must have on my Christmas list and I have never looked back. My hair was extremely damaged and this has helped massively to regain its strength and condition :)

  7. These are such lifesavers I don't know how I coped without mine before! Hairdressers always used to recommend them to me and I never paid attention as I thought they were just over hyped but it's amazing how quickly they untangle hair! What a lovely blog, thanks for sending your link on Twitter I'm following you now :) xx
