If you haven't heard about this product then you need to listen UP! The Tangle Teezer is AMAZING! If you can't tell it is a brush/comb used to detangle hair. I have had my own Tangle Teezer for about 2-3 months now and I simply can't say enough about it. I will say that the only reason I use a comb any more is to part my hair. IT'S THAT GOOD!!
I believe the Tangle Teezer works so well because it has so many small teeth and it is able to get the small tangles that our combs are not able to get. The bristles of the brush are also flexible so that it doesn't tear your hair out like a comb or Denman brush will. I will say that just as with any other styling product you still need to be gentle and take your time.
In my use of the Tangle Teezer to detangle I part my hair into 4 section s and then break those sections in half. Altogether that's eight sections. I tell you this to say that you will still need to do semi small section s to get the best use of of the product. I also, just like with a comb, start from the end and comb (or brush) to the root. I have heard people say that they can even start at the root but I didn't try it. The Tangle Teezer detangles on wet and dry hair, but in my experience it works best when I am detangling under running water in the shower.
I purchased my Tangle Teezer from Sally Beauty for around $10. If you haven't tried this product I HIGHLY recommend it!
