I have been an avid fan of the tangle teezer for the last couple of years. I had always used a bog standard hard bristle brush since my teens so I was very sceptical whenever I first heard of the tangle teezer. I had been used to spending 20 minutes every night brushing out my hair because I have so much of it and it gets tatty very easily. The idea that this rubber bristle brush could detangle my hair painlessly with minimum breakage was too hard for me to believe. On so many occasions I have been bitterly disappointed with a beauty product claiming to do this, that and the other and then falling short, that now I am extremely pessimistic about these new ‘revolutionary’ products.
When I decided to part with my money and try out the tangle teezer, I was pleasantly surprised that it actually miraculously worked. Washing and brushing my hair had always been such a chore for me but now the tangle teezer has cut that time in half. Even though it cost me £10, it is still one of the best beauty investments that I have ever made. When the Wet Brush was sent to me I was unsure whether it would do as good a job as the tangle teezer considering that it still resembled a standard hairbrush. I’ve only been using it for a couple of days but as I predicted, it just doesn’t stand up to the same level as the tangle teezer.
The wet brush isn’t bad, but it isn’t great either. It doesn’t fully detangle my hair and it isn’t completely painfree. At just over a £5, it’s much cheaper than the tangle teezer, but I have to say you get what you pay for. In my opinion, if you have medium to long thick/curly/wavy hair, go for the tangle teezer, it will make light work of any tats or knots. If you’re on a budget then opt for the wet brush but don’t be expecting any wonders.
What do you guys think? Are you a fan of either?
Happy Monday! xo
