i've got to say, i did really well not buying into the tangle teezer hype for so long, but when placing an asos order recently i finally gave in and popped one into my basket so i could take advantage of my 10% student discount.
in all honesty, i've been completed underwhelmed by this product. from reviews i've read on blogs and seen on youtube, it's touted as being a miracle product that minimises hair breakage and offers easy detangling, and i honestly can't say i've seen any differences between this product and the old £1 hairbrush i'd previously been using from wilkos. this product does detangle your hair with ease if you're gentle, but then again, so did my old hair brush; more than anything, i was hoping that by opting for the tangle teezer instead of my old brush i'd see a lot less breakage and hairs left in it, but it hasn't even given me that because even now i'm cleaning this out just as often as i cleaned my old hairbrush. i also don't really like the shape of this brush as it feels awkward to brush through your hair with, so for a product that performs no better than your bog standard handled hairbrush, i'm really just not that into it – sorry, tangle teezer.
while i've been horribly unimpressed by this product, i have spared a thought about my hair type and whether or not it's just my hair being easily manageable that means i can see the same results with a regular hairbrush. i have very thin, naturally straight hair, so it's not very often that i have to tackle stubborn knots or really need to give my hair a good brushing through, because generally it never gets that unruly. one of my friends has fairly thick, naturally curly hair and she swears by the tangle teezer, claiming it's completely changed how she manages her hair, and i don't disbelieve her claims at all, i just wanted to share that if, like me, you're cursed with not a lot of hair that is naturally straight, perhaps you'd better saving yourself a bit of cash and just opting for a regular hairbrush that will give you equally as good results as the tangle teezer.
