Recently the Tangle Teezer was also on Dragons Den, a UK TV program in which inventors try to convince weathly businessmen and businesswomen to invest in their creation. The Tangle Teezer is known on Dragons Den as 'the one that got away'. The Dragons turned Shaun P the inventor of Tangle Teezer down. They didn't believe the Tangle Teezer would become sucessful, they've never been more wrong! The Tangle Teezer is now hugely popular and generates a massive turn over each year.
After hearing so much about the Tangle Teezer, and seeing it in action on Dragons Den, I knew this was a product that needed to be on my dressing table. If you've ever read one of my shampoo/conditioner reviews you'll know that my hair drives me crazy. It gets so tangled when I shampoo it, because it's so long. I'll only use a conditioner if it helps un-tangle my hair, because if it doesn't I'll be there for hours trying to un-tangle it! It's a massive issue in my haircare routine. And I believe that Shaun P understands this!
I brought the Tangle Teezer in Sparkly Purple. The original is a neon pink colour, which was a little too tacky for my liking. This one costs £12.99 from Boots stores.
My main tangling problem is once am out the shower and wanting to blow dry my hair. This is when I'll use my Tangle Teezer, hopefully to stop the pain and frustration! It's formed of lot's of very thin plastic bristles, some long some short. They're really flexible so don't snap, but because they're plastic you can't use your Tangle Teezer with your hairdryer.
Does it work? I'm pleased to say yes :D. Tangle Teezer is a friend to your hair. Not only does it cause minimal amount of pain when un-tangling with minimal amount of effort, it also protects your hair.
Shaun P says, 'Hair breakage and cuticle damage is caused by inappropriate brushes and combs that mistreat hair when trying to detangle it. Therefore preventing this is the key to luxurious hair. Switching to Tangle Teezer will help reduce this type of damage, putting thicker and healthier hair within your reach'.
I've used this once so far, after washing my hair. Already my hair feels much softer and healthier than it would if I used my normal brush. I still use my Denman brushes though for hair drying and brushing when dry.
My only little complain is the price. I don't see why they cost so much as the bristles are plastic. You can buy a natural bristle brush for £12.99. Although I will contradict myself and say it's certainly worth the price, due to the lack of pain I now go through after washing my hair!
What do you think to the famous Tangle Teezer? Is tangled hair a problem for you too? Do you think they may be over priced?
