"Grrr", followed by me kissing my teeth was usually my expressions of discontent when I used to attempt detangling my hair, but all that changed when I discovered the wonder that is the Tangle Teezer. I know this product has been around for a while now but I've only recently used it for the first time so it's relatively new to me. And yes, I know that it has already been reviewed like a gazillion times, so I need not go into too much detail about why it's such a great product.
I ordered the pink and black compact styler two weeks ago (I paid £9 on Amazon) because I thought it would be handy to have one that I can pop in my handbag. The wind these days does nothing short of upsetting me so this brush saves me from walking around like a scarecrow or looking like I've just been in a fierce brawl with a fan.
I usually have my hair in a weave so this is perfect for sorting out stubborn tangles and random knots that can often form in extensions. I was amazed (literally mouth open, catching flies) at how effortlessly it glided through, detangling the strands. Its ergonomic design makes it comfortable to hold and manoeuvre. Hassle-free and quick. Pow! It's one of those "Where have you been all my life?" purchases.
I have yet to use it on my own hair but I'm sure it'll work just as well. I've been warned not to go crazy with it though because it can cause breakage if enough care isn't taken, so I'll bear that in mind when I take my weave out next.
Have you got a Tangle Teezer? What do you think of it?
