I bought this last November from beautybay when they had a pre-christmas flash sale. I have wanted to buy this for so so long but never wanted to part with the £10.99 price tag in Boots for a hair brush. When I saw it for £7.80 I made an impulse order (if by impulse we mean wanting something for a year). I have put off reviewing this for a few months because to be honest, I just wasn't sure what I thought about it.
The curved shape means that despite there being no handle, you can fit your hand round it with a degree of comfort. I think this shape is fine for people that don't have much hair like me but if you have thick, long hair this may go flying all over the place.
The 'unique teeth configuration' is meant to equal 'rapid, pain-free detangling' and 'high shine'. Now to get to the actual review. Do I think it's worth it?
When I first used it, I remember being seriously underwhelmed. I'm not sure what I expected. I didn't expect my hair to suddenly be worthy of a L'oreal advert (cue images of me pushing Cheryl aside screaming it's because I'M worth it actually). I did however hope that it would glide through my hair without any hair loss and that's where the TT didn't quite cut it.
In short, the brush does glide through my hair without any pain or struggle, however, I still have lots of hair coming off onto the brush. I have issues with hair loss anyway so I'm not sure why I thought it would be any different because of the brush (I'm concentrating on hair oils at the moment to help with this). It was because of this issue that I wasn't a big fan at first but when I began using my old brush again I noticed I missed the 'pain-free detangling' when combing through wet hair.
All in all this is quite a 'meh' review but that isn't a reflection of the TT but more of my hair type. It isn't a must for people with thin hair in my opinion but I think the Tangle Teezer would be great for people with thick, long knotty hair. I wanted this brush because I thought it would help reduce the amount of hair I lose after combing but it hasn't done that to the extent I'd hoped (although it probably does help). If I hadn't had such high expectations of it performing miracles, I'm guessing this review would be way more enthusiastic.
Has anyone tried the £1.50 dupe in Primark?
Till next time...Toodles! :)
