Wishlist: Tangle Teezer

I have thick, curly hair. I usually make it more-or-less manageable by using a thick conditioner, covering it in curl cream, and leaving it to dry naturally. But when I want to wear it straight, the prospect of combing it through so I can begin blowdrying mostly makes me think OUCH. Similarly, brushing out my stepdaughter's hair is a task that makes her go OUCH, regardless of how gentle I am.

Enter the Tangle Teezer; it found fame on the Dragons Den, and has since gone on to be a bit of a hit product. I never really saw the point, thinking that it just seemed to be an ergonomic comb.. until a hairdresser recently used it on my hair before a blowdry.

As she gently worked it through my hair, I found that there was no pulling, no snagging, and no tugging. I have no idea how it works, but it definitely does work; detangling hair is much, much easier with this than it is with a regular brush (or comb). I want one for myself, and one for my stepdaughter after trying to tame her long, thick hair this weekend.

If you'd like to try one for yourself, you can get them in a range of colours from BeautyBay.com for £9.75.


  1. wow they look cool! I can imagine holding it. it doesn't look like it hurts, i think i need 1, but mum won't let me spend that much on a brush. x]

  2. It is quite expensive for a brush, but I'll pay that price to save myself de-tangling pain! I guess it also doesn't rip hair out like I'm capable of doing with a regular brush :)

  3. Ooh I saw these the other day, I was thinking about getting one! x
