For day 29 of the 30 days of beauty challenge the topic is Hair Tools. The tangle teezer is essentially the only item that can be classified as a hair tool that I use on my hair these days.
I’ve stopped heat styling my hair since last November and I simply let it air dry with some product in it. I’ve been enjoying my natural curls lately and they look best when my hair is in the best condition possible. That said, it is also important for me to have a brush that detangles my crazy curls without damaging my hair and this tangle teezer is the only brush that does the job.
I’ve tried a couple of other brushes that are supposedly meant for detangling hair but for some reason, none work in the same way as this one. I’m very careful with detangling my hair. With any brush, I never start combing my hair from root to end because that way I simply end up with a bunch of knots at the bottom, making it more difficult to detangle without damage. I start by combing the ends and making sure that there aren’t any knots there, then I start slowly working my way up. It doesn’t take as much time as it sounds. Since my hair is healthier, it’s been more silky and the brush seems to go through without much effort. Back when my hair was more damaged and more difficult to comb through, this brush had a significant impact on my styling time and ease of detangling.
This brush is more costly than average brushes but I sincerely think that it’s worth the money. In my experience, I wasted much more money on cheaper brushes that I had to stop using and it would have cost less to simply buy this one right off the bat. And of course, since it’s not breaking my hair it also reduces my expenses on hair repair and/or frizz fighting products. For my type of hair, owning a brush like this is necessary and saves time, money, damage and frustration.
