Hello again!

So today’s review is all about hair and the wonderful and most awesome Tangle Teezer. It is an award winning detangling brush that effortlessly combs out the tangles and knots in your hair with minimum damage, pain or hair loss. It is the brain child of celebrity hair stylist Shaun P and was developed in Great Britain.

I have thin hair strands, but LOTS of them. I also have very long hair. I can brush my hair now, and a second later it knots again. Originally, I barely brushed my hair due to this problem, but working in a professional environment, one can’t walk around with your bed head. (boohoo)

My colleague and friend recommended I try Tangle Teezer, as she has witnessed the epic struggle with just combing my hair. Eventually I gave in, and I ordered it. AND OH MY WORD, it was worth it. It has fine little flexible plastic bristles that somehow glides over, then through knots and tangles, without having to tug and pull and basically consider cutting your hair again… You can use it on wet or dry hair, and works with any hair type. You can even massage your head with it – HAHA!

It is available in a variety of colours, and you can purchase it at hair salons, or online. It retails for anything between R150 – R250 (depending on the seller), but whatever – IT IS WORTH IT. This brush has also been called a “godsend” by mothers, as it really helps with decreasing the drama when brushing out tangles of crazy busy kiddies’ hair.

Bonus: Tangle Teezer is also recommended by pet groomers as a quick and easy way to brush through cat and dog hair.

Bottomline? BUY THIS BRUSH.

Tangle teezer

Honestly the best hair brush I have ever bought. I have long, thick hair and I have no problem getting through my hair with this, no matter how knotty it is. It doesn’t break/damage my hair at all. I can even use it on my 5 year old sister with no moaning - it gets knots out with no pain! Will definitely buy another one when mine has had enough (going on 3 years strong now!). Definitely worth the price tag.

Every kids dream.

Recently a mum and I were talking and I asked her why she cut her daughters hair. Her tangle problems were like every little girls.

I shared my secret as my daughter twirls her hair creating some tangle.

This brush means no more “please mum don’t brush my hair.” Statements and actually makes brushing hair seem like a normal task and not a battle of the divas.

Well worth it!

Even though it was really painful paying more than R300 for a brush (I'd never paid more than R30 before), I got the wet one and it has saved my hair in the shower! It is so effortless and leaves my hair feeling so smooth that I even got the kiddies one for my daughter - anyone with daughters knows how hectic their hair can be! You hair will definitely love you for this one. I recommend it for all types of hair - I have thick, frizzy hair and my daughter has thick straight hair.

Tangle Teezer

This brush is THE BOMB!
I have naturally curly, frizzy and dry hair - which can be an absolute nightmare to brush. this brush has made it SO easy, it doesn't yank or pull on my hair and manages to get the tangles out without pulling half of my hair out! You can use it if your hair is wet or dry. I actually bought another one to keep in my shower to brush my conditioner through my hair.
I even bought one for my little sister - you know how much kids cry and moan when they have to brush their tangles out, and it has just made life SO much easier.
I would definitely recommend this brush to anyone!

Tangle free

My hair is frizzy and knots all the time and combing through it always results in substantial hair loss. Whether my hair is freshly washed or dried combing it is a painful effort.
In comes the Tangle Teezer... This has made my life so much easier. No more pain and hair loss for me through brushing and combing knots. I wish I had started using the tangle Teezer sooner but now that I am, I won't stop.

Tangle Teezer

I have an afro and it works really well to detangle and doesn't break your hair like other brushes do. Its very expensive though and you do find cheaper products that are similar. The only issue I have with this product is its price, the price is certainly not justified.

Never damage your hair when brushing it again

Your hair is most vulnerable when its wet, combing it will cause breakage.
Save yourself the pain of tearing out knots with a detangler.

Benefits:
• Easier styling, especially for curly hair

How to use:
• Comb your hair from the bottom, this ensures its knot free so you don’t pull your hair
• Tackle knotted hair by combing through knots when you have a conditioner on when washing
• Rinse hair & comb again

Untangle those tresseses

For only R 10 you can have tangle free hair! I bought mine at takealot for only R 10. Yes R 10! and it combs like a dream without pulling out my hair and massages my scalp.
I have less frizz and more curls.
What a bargain and the brush is soo soft I do not feel it.

More like tangle tamer

I have super-fine and fragile hair and this is one of the first brushes that I can use when my hair is wet without pulling out chunks of hair. It definitely does what it says – detangler extraordinaire!

Tangle Teezer

Fantastic hair brush.
I have a thick head of curly hair and use to hate brushing my hair as the tangles were painful to get out. This brush works perfectly and does not pull on the hair which prevents breakage and split ends. It also comes in a range of funky colours. I have even bought one for my Yorkie for his long tangle prone hair and he loves it.

Gorgeous in the blue and hot pink!

Some may say that spending R230 on what basically looks like a kiddies brush is a waste. But a waste it is not!

This little brush goes through wet AND dry hair without pulling, snagging or hurting!
It's marvelous!

Tangle Teezer

This little miracle worker was the reason I did not have to cut off my long locks, after getting ridiculously stubborn tangles. It is very forgiving on tangles, so it is great for people with a low pain threshold (like me). It's a bit pricey - I bought mine for R220, but it is definitely an investment! Easy to clean, no nooks and crannies. Just wash it in the sink/bath/shower.

Tangle Teezer Compact in Read and Black

I purchased this Tangle Teezer a while ago from Takealot as they were having a special and it was R129 including shipping - a good deal that I just could not pass up! I think they are still running the special now.

This is the compact one, but it fits well in the palm of my hand, and I don't really see how getting the regular-sized one would be better for me. It comes with a handy cover for the bristles, meaning it can go into your handbag without messing them up.

The bristles themselves are all different heights, and are made from flexible plastic. They do work exceptionally well at removing tangles from your hair, whether it is wet or dry. Normally I don't like to comb my hair when it is wet as I don't want to damage it, but I don't feel that the Tangle Teezer does damage my hair.

For those of you with long hair, or thick hair, or with children who hate having their hair brushed because it hurts, the Tangle Teezer is just for you!

Tangle Teezer also claim that there is less hair loss when using their product, and although this could be the case (I never really measured with a regular brush), there was still some hair loss for me. But that is inevitable I guess - our hair is meant to shed!

All in all this is a very successful product and combs through knotty hair easily, and more importantly, completely pain-free.

Tangle Teezer : Red and black compact

So i always wondered what is the hype around the Tangle Teezer!

I have very fine and wavy hair and almost every morning my hair is tangled.

The Tangle Teezer compact is very light and you would think that how will these soft bristles remove the tangles i was very skeptical. I was proved wrong once I started using it.Wow it removes the tangles with such ease and with minimal damage.
The brush is smaller than I anticipated,it fits in the palm of my hand and also easily fits in your handbag. It also has a removable cover to protect the innovative flexi teeth from dust, dirt and fluff.It certainly does the job and I am very pleased that I decided to buy it from Takealot for only R129 delivered for free :)

For me this a wonder brush works on wet, dry hair and is also suitable for all hair types. No more tears. All I can say is where have you been all my life!!!!!

Tangle Teezer

In 2013 I highlighted my hair at a hair dressers, unfortunately something went wrong and the reaction my hair had was to instantly tangle from the root to the tip, anytime I did anything, to Mae brushing or combing my hair an impossibility. I tried pretty much every product I could think of to try and tame my hair, unfortunately nothin worse.
I decided to suck it up and order a Tangle Teezer, I was hesitant because it is a rather expensive hair brush to buy and I was nervous that it wouldn't work. I eventually got to the stage that I would pay anything to get hair without knots and tangles. I purchased my Tangle Teezer for R170 from Take a Lot, incl postage.
I was hesitant to use the brush at first, because I was so used to a painful and long procedure of trying to brush my hair.
I sucked up all the courage I could and brushed my hair, it was miraculous, you are advised to start from the tips and move up to the roots which is what I did. I experienced a 100% pain free hair brushing, the tangles were lightly massaged out of my hair and I was left with smooth! tangle free locks with (a bonus) shine.

I've used the Tangle Teezer wet and dry and it is a life changing hair brush that will make any problem hair beautiful and untangled. I have even suggested it to my friends with kids as it is a dream to use, a friend of mine (African) only uses it on her hair and has the best results. Basically this brush will work with any hairstyle, hair style and hair length.

Tangle Teezer : Salon Elite

I have absolutely fine hair, which is always prone to tangles, especially after washing my hair. I've seen many bloggers raving about Tangle Teezers, I really didn't feel the need for it until I had a huge knot in my hair and lost a few good strands of hair trying to untangle it. I purchased my Tangle Teezer from a salon called Head Hunters in Ballito. I purchased the Tangle Teezer in Midnight Black for R250.

I was super excited to try out the REAL Tangle Teezer because I've tried a few detangling brushes. At first I didn't see any hype in the product, until one day I forgot it in my bag and felt so incomplete without my Tangle Teezer. I chose the Salon Elite Tangle Teezer which is a perfect shape to fit in my hand. The secret to perfect hair is definitely to have a Tangle Teezer. This amazing brush has bristles of different lengths which makes it easier to detangle your hair.

The Tangle Teezer can be used on wet, damp or dry hair and really helps a lot with the tugging and pulling of hair. If your hair falls easily, don't expect miracles, because even after using this brush you will have hair fall, it will just be less. I would really recommend this brush for tangles because it's a miracle worker, however keep away from heat because the bristles can melt.

The Tangle Teezer is available in the following different ranges:
Salon Elite
Aqua Splash
The Original
The Compact Styler
The Compact Styler Collectables
Magic Flowerpot

Tangle Teezer Purple

I was rather sceptical about this brush because it didn't look all that special to me, but I was really blown away by it. This is truly a very versatile brush. I use this in the bath, when I am blowdrying my hair and for everyday brushing. I really find this to be an all purpose brush that works wonders. It untangles hair very easily with very little pain and I also find that I don't end up with a thousand strand of hairs in the brush after use. With other brushes my hair fall is rather alarming (granted I am still battling with my iron deficiency) but this brush truly is a log gentler on my hair.

Another thing I really love is that this is so easy to clean. While washing my hair I take this into the bath or shower with me and use it to brush through my conditioner. Afterwards I give it a quick wash and it's good as new.

I paid R229 for mine on the Rubybox website, but Takealot currently sells other brushes for only R109 which is a massive saving! I also saw that they have ones in compacts that is seriously tempting me now.

This is truly a must for everyone and worth the money!
