Not impressed

May 8th  •  Posted in Beauty

You may already know I had considered the purchase of a Tangle Teezer for a really long time and I finally went for it as soon as I saw it live for the first time ever a few months ago. My doubts were lots as I didn’t really know if I’ll ever need something like a good detangling brush as my hair isn’t difficult or too painful to comb. I was pretty intrigued though by the reviews online and I have to admit I was pretty incouraged by the loss of too many locks of mine.

The Tangle Teezer should be a pretty innovative hair brush to help you detangle your hair painless and easier. It aims to be more gentle than every other hair brush and perfect for every hair type, suitable even for vulnerable and color treated hair. What really pushed me to buy it was that being thought to suit every hair needs as well as to be super gentle, I thought it could really make the difference in avoiding my hair loss.

So, is it worth? I don’t think so. This is a very expensive hair brush in my opinion, and that’s an amount of money I wasn’t sure about spending on a brush, but being that everyone describes it as a phenomenal tool, I thought it could really be worth. I have really thick, oily and straight hair and rarely I have problems with tangles, and if you have a similar hair type to mine and are considering buying a Tangle Teezer yourself, I would say save your money for something better and keep using your usual hair brush (or buy a cheaper one) because on me the results are pretty much the same. Yes, you have a little cute tool to expose in your bathroom and it sometimes can avoid some painful processes (but for me it happens really rarely) – but nothing more than that really. I can’t understand the hype and I wish I never changed my mind about avoiding this purchase. I can see this can be the magic answer to some hair types issue especially who has hair prone to tangle easly, but I’m really not that impressed at all. As regards the hair loss I found a good green shampoo helps a lot and gives the best results even if not paired with a similar tool.

Any other who doesn’t love the Tangle Teezer out there?

    • I think if your hair is very knotty it could maybe be worth trying it! x

  • Gutting I Love my tangle teaser but your looks so different to mine yours does look like it would work as well not seen that one before.

    • This is the compact version, it’s ideal to be brought in your handbag as well 🙂 x

  • I haven’t tried it yet, but I totally agree that it’s too expensive for what it’s supposed to do…

    • To me it’s too similar to a cheaper hair brush… I really can’t justify spending that amount of money!

  • I do love it, but i understand where you are coming from x

    Se non hai problemi di nodi e un tipo di capelli che non ne crea, non ho capito perché avresti avuto bisogno in partenza di una spazzola che ha come unico scopo quello di scioglierli (non a caso si chiama TANGLE) in maniera gentile, e in generale che è fatta per capelli crespi o ricci, da disciplinare. Capisco perché ti sei trovata male, ma è come bocciare un prodotto per pelli secche avendo la pelle grassa e oleosa ^^;;;;; Ci credo bene che non ti è servita…

    • Come ho detto, il problema è che sia la descrizione ufficiale del prodotto sia le molteplici le review che si trovano online la descrivono come adatta a tutti i tipi di capelli, quando poi non è affatto così. Non è pensata solo per capelli ricci o crespi. Quel paio di nodi li ho pure io, ed essendo che dovrebbe essere pensata per non strappare i capelli o comunque farlo meno di altre, poteva essere un acquisto utile nel mio caso. Eppure non funziona, e il senso del post è proprio far capire che non è vero come si dice che è fenomenale su tutti i tipi di capelli.

  • I love the tangle teezer! Shame didnt get on with you! x

  • I got a fake one since my hair doesn’t tend to get tangled and I’m glad I’ve saved some money

    • I should have done the same as you!

    I’ve used a tangle teaser and I also thought it was rubbish! Never mind 🙁

    I’m really not a fan of the tangle teezer! I get really matted hair and while it’s not the best for your hair to brush it and stuff, sometimes it’s necessary. i find it is way too shallow for my hair and doesn’t make brushing my hair any more fun than my big paddle boat brush!

    I want to try this as I do get knotty hair but I really cant justify that amount of money on a hair brush. I think I’ll just stick to gritting my teeth and patience
