I caved and bought a Tangle Teezer - Is it worth the hype?

During a Sunday #bbloggers chat I tweeted about the cult hairbrush line Tangle Teezer. I hadn't used one before but heard many great stories about them. I asked if they were worth the money and did they live up to the hype.

More than 10 #bbloggers replied, here is what some had to say:

How have you lived without one? Mine has saved some serious knot situations! X 

yes! i've had mine for like a week and it's changed my hair completely xo

definitely, the only thing that can get through my hair! x

I've got a leopard print one that now stays in my bag, couldn't resist! x

With that in mind I thought I would give Tangle Teezer a try:

I picked up the Original Plum Delicious from Boots for around £10.

When I felt the plastic bristles I have to admit I convinced. I thought how could these flimsy plastic bristles brush through knotty hair, wet or dry.

However, I was surprised just how easily this brush got through my hair. Of course it didn't cut through knots in one stroke, but it made a huge difference. It didn't feel like it was ripping my hair and it didn't feel like an effort to brush through.

I can imagine this being a great brush for children to avoid tears and tantrums!

If you haven't tried this brush I would definitely give it a go.


  1. I was pretty impressed with this brush too, can't believe it until you try it, right? ;) x

  2. I love the Tangle Teezer im on my second one now as i lost my other one, its great because it stops damage to your hair where other brushes just rip through knots :) x

  3. I bought a cheap replica from ebay and for something that cost around £1 I'm totally amazed at the job it does, so I can imagine the real thing being super impressive! x

  4. I had a mint green one a couple of years ago but I gave it away - I really didn't work for my long thick hair x

  5. I'm a tangle teezer virgin! I've never been convinved that such a thing could ever brush through knots without damaging hair. I may have to invest in one just to see as I do suffer from serious knots as I have such thick hair

    Looking forward to meeting you at #southwestbloggersmeet! :D
