The Tangle Teezer* has come a long way since its inception nearly 10 years ago. It is the hair brush famously known for detangling and smoothing hair without damaging it and do you know what else? I’ve never had the pleasure of using one…until now.
Sold in over 70 countries, the British brand has recently introduced a fun element to the Tangle Teezer whereby you can customise your own brush on their website. The classic pink is still available, it’s just more fun to can mix and match the top and teeth with a choice of eight colours, select a pattern or even upload a photo onto your brush. The possibilities are endless and you can preview the designs online until you are satisified with the final outcome.
I opted for a zebra print as the top with black teeth for a monochrome finish. As I mentioned, I’ve never used a Tangle Teezer before (tried enough imitations) but with such a sterling reputation, I was very eager. The top part of the Tangle Teezer is beautifully curved to make it easy to fit into the palm. The bristles are protected by a teeth guard so there’s no worry about them getting bent in your bag or suitcase.
The secret lies in the teeth that flex and bend when making contact with tangles while at the same time the cuticles are smoothed to give glossy locks. It’s not recommended to use with heated appliances but then again, it’s not particularly easy to if you tried.
I tend not to suffer from knotted hair (unless I’ve been at the beach) but I like to keep a brush in my handbag for tidying up the windswept look and the Tangle Teezer is certainly very compact and convenient to carry around. I took it on my recent weekend break in my bid to travel light. I also like to use the Tangle Teezer in the shower to comb conditioner through and also to massage castor or coconut oil into my scalp.
Now that I’ve sampled the real McCoy, there is no going back. The customised Tangle Teezer is a great gift idea or an excuse to treat yourself and colour coordinate with the rest of your beauty set-up. To customise your own Tangle Teezer, visit Tangle Teezer’s official site.
