I had no idea Tangle Teezer produced such a wide variety of brushes – talk about (
milking) making the most of one idea!
I have the original TT and the Wet Detangler – which I thought was the original one with a handle, but I can see now that some of the plastic bristles are longer and it’s actually designed for wet hair (um…the clue was in the name).
Then, I read that they’ve recently launched a Fine and Fragile brush for fine, fragile and damaged hair.
The Original Fine & Fragile detangling hairbrush is ideal for those with fine and fragile hair – a condition that can be caused for a myriad of reasons at any time of life.
Sufferers are often scared to brush their hair for fear of pulling out hair, but Fine & Fragile gently glides through the hair with no pulling or tugging whilst massaging the scalp. The unique two-tiered soft-flex teeth detangle quickly and easy without causing the hair any additional stress.
The thing is, I always thought I could hear my original TT literally ripping through my hair, but dismissed it because, well it’s a Tangle Teezer, everyone seems to own one and it was designed specifically to detangle hair so you didn’t have to struggle with a comb to get knots out. My highlighted hair dries really fast, before I’ve even had a chance to comb it through and it can get knotty quickly.
To be honest, a wide toothed comb doesn’t work half as fast or as efficiently, as my TT and if I ever lost it ie it was nabbed by Mark or one of the boys, my hair would take forever to comb through and I’d have to keep wetting it.
Reading this (below) makes me think I was right about the tearing and damage and frankly, I’m a little bit put out.
Fine & Fragile teeth are 30% SOFTER than The Original and proven to give 5 x LESS HAIR BREAKAGE
I asked my hairdresser about Tangle Teezer, she said that though some salons use a variation of them (the concept of Tangle Teezer has been around forever), she would never endorse their use because they’re too harsh on hair and can cause breakage; a wide toothed comb with round tips is kinder to hair.
My hair is fragile, it’s been dyed, styled and heat abused for over 4 decades, so it needs tender loving care. There are lots of good combs around, but I’ve found this one on Amazon UK. It’s got fairly decent reviews and seems sturdy enough, so I’ll report back.
Also, because I can’t go cold turkey on Tangle Teezer, I’m going to buy the fine and fragile one – I know, I know, after everything I said as well, I’m such a sheep!
The brushes normally retail for £11.00, but Look Fantastic have them on offer (at 24/5/19) for slightly less.
