With all the great comments about this brush I was expecting maybe a little bit too much. Don't let all the amazing reviews fool you into thinking that the Tangle Teezer is some kind of miracle worker and can effortlessly brush out all the knots in just 3 strokes and leave your hair knotless for the rest of time. It doesn't do that. But it does do something that most,if not all, other brushes doesn't do. Which is gets rid of knots without any, pulling or pain.
I use my Tangle Teezer on wet and dry hair, and it works well with both. When my hair needs a brush I like to use my Tangle Teezer to easily and painlessly get out the knots and then go over it afterwards with my Denman paddle brush just to smooth it all out. If you have long hair, or hair that is prone to knots then is a must have! For those of you that are more fortunate and don't get a lot of tangles then it's definitely still something worth investing in. I have a lot less breakage when using my Tangle Teezer and with my ultra thin hair, I need to keep every strand I can.
The only bad thing I found with this brush is that when I hit a particularly tough knot the Tangle Teezers just slips out of my and ends up on the floor across the room. The grip is lacking somewhat but it's only a minor thing.
I love my Tangle Teezer and I'm considering buying my sister one for her birthday in a weeks time as she will not brush her hair when it's wet due to it being too knotted up (I die a little inside when I see how much she abuses her hair). This would also be perfect for children as lets face it, we've all been there as a child when mum,dad or grandma is pulling a brush through your hair and your almost in tears (ouch). Don't let the price put you off,it is worth every penny.
