Tangle Teezer | Worth The Hype?


There was much excitement the other day when I visited home for the weekend and found that my mum had bought me a tangle teezer! I have wanted one for absolutely ages but have never really wanted to splash £10.99 on something that I’m not certain will work.

As someone with really curly, coarse, thick and long hair I am prone to tangles. I have to admit it takes me about 45 minutes every time I wash my hair to detangle everything. I have millions of knotted hair strands and bits of hair that has almost dread-locked on days that I don’t wash it (attractive right?) I try to avoid brushing my hair, unless I use a big paddle brush, as I am wary not to pull or break any of it. 

I was a bit sceptical of the tangle teezer as my hairdresser advised be to use a big paddle brush or wide-toothed comb to avoid damaging my hair. I have heard many bloggers and Youtubers with fine-medium hair complaining about how they suffer from knots and the tangle teezer worked for them. I really didn’t expect it to be able to tame my massive afro lions mane. Despite this, I have to say that I was completely pleasantly surprised when trying the tangle teezer. 

I love how it is really compact and you can slip it into your bag easily if you’re travelling or are having a really long day. (I also wish I’d had it to hand that time I got my hair caught in a bush – don’t ask). It is so easy to use as you literally lightly drag it through your hair and it untangles without snagging or hurting it. For those of you who also have really coarse and knotted hair, I would advise you to comb out the ends of your hair first and then work your way up to the top. You are less likely to damage it if you do it this way, as you’re not forcing the brush all the way down your hair in one go. Another trick I do is placing my hand under hair with huge tangles, and repeatedly lightly brushing it through. Placing your hand underneath prevents the pressure that would occur if you forced the brush through without any support.

I can honestly say that my usual strenuous and tedious task of detangling my hair before washing it was reduced as I managed to prep my hair in half the time. I would definitely recommend the tangle teezer to others who really struggle with tangles and are sceptical about trying it. Like me, you may be pleasantly surprised, and now I can’t imagine not having one. I might even buy another one for back up!

  1. Great post Hun! I bought this exact same pink one about 7 years ago and I think I’m the only person in the world that hates it. I was so upset as I really wanted it to be the best brush ever, I’m so glad you liked it and made it work for you it must be me – I’m a tough sell oh well never mind! X

    1. I keep meaning to invest in one as I had it used on my hair last time I went to the hairdressers and I knew I just had to have one! Sounds great that its worked for you too!

    2. Aww really! How annoying. I suppose it’s something that works different on everyone as we all have different hair. Thanks for reading my lovely, and it’s good to get another perspective xx

  2. I love mine! Detangling without the ouch factor. Have you seen the even smaller handbag versions with the little caps on so the bristles don’t dent stuff in your bag/get covered in bottom of the bag crumbs? They’re not cheap – but they are ace!

  3. I bought one for myself last year (it was priced at a ridiculous 16 euros) and surprisingly, my HUSBAND fell in love with it. He has extremely thick, Italian hair, which, when it gets long, gets super curly and poofy and apparently my tangle teezer is the only one that can sort it out. I bought him one of his own (in sleek black so he no longer has to use my hot pink one…), to get him to stop stealing mine! 😛
