Wet Brush vs Tangle Teezer; Reviewing The Best Detangling Hairbrushes

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

    I keep meaning to try the Tangle Teezer but I love a good quality big paddle brush. Stuck in my ways I guess! I only brush my hair when dry, before I wash it, so the wet brush wouldn’t be great for me.

    You can use the wet brush or damp or dry hair but I definitely don’t rate it as highly as the tangle teezer. Better just investing that bit more and getting something that does the job! xo

    Honest to god, it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I swear by it for getting those pesky tats out. xo

    The Wet brush for me hands down, I prefer a handle. the Tangle Teezer is just too childish for me. They both detangle my hair quite easily, so its down to personal preference . The metallic finish to the wet brush makes the product look so much more classy, the Tangle Teezer is just a bit too dull and plastic, reminds me of a novelty item.
