Tangle Teezer Review

Do you remember that episode of Grey’s Anatomy where Merideth Grey describes herself as “dark and twisty”? I distinctly remember it because as soon as I heard that phrase, I was reminded of my hair. It’s dark, very fine, thin, straight, and so twisty. By twisty I mean that it tangles very easily, especially when it’s windy out (which is very often where I live). In addition to the wind, my hair doesn’t get along well with my clothes. I wear a lot of hoodies—even in my air conditioned home in the summer. The friction between the back of my hair and the hoodie creates a ball of tangles that I spend at least 10 minutes every morning trying to untangle with a comb. And don’t even get me started on the mess of tangles that the collar of my winter coat creates in my hair. On occasion, I have had to cut little clumps out with scissors.

Considering my tangle woes, I was very excited when Nail Polish Canada gave me the opportunity to try out a Tangle Teezer. I chose the Original Tangle Teezer in the shade Purple & Pink. Used by professionals in hair salons, Tangle Teezer offers revolutionized detangling hairbrushes that help comb through wet, vulnerable, colour treated hair without pulling or snagging. They’ve received numerous beauty awards since their launch. 

After trying this product for a week straight, I discovered that Tangle Teezer is a huge help for tangles on both wet and dry hair. I credit its success to its evenly spaced bristles of varying lengths.

One thing I really like is that it prevents the hair from making that ripping sound that often happens when a hair brush takes on a clump of tangles. I used to have to separate my hair into sections and work out the tangles in each one with a comb. With the Tangle Teezer, I just have to brush through my hair a few times before it’s completely tangle free. It works even faster when my hair is wet, and I find that I lose less hair with this brush than with a standard hair brush. For my hair, the detangling process with this product is painless and very quick. I also like how the spacing of the bristles makes it very easy to remove stray hairs from the brush after use.

My only small complaint is that sometimes the bristles are too short to reach all the hair at the back of my head, so I need to spread the hair a bit so the brush can reach. It takes very little effort though.

Overall, I really love this product and will continue to use it every day. Tangle Teezer products can be purchased from Nail Polish Canada where all Tangle Teezers ship free within Canada. Check out the full selection here:
