tangle teezer...why does it work?

Has it cut down on anyone's detangling time at all?

Question though: when you use it, do you start at the ends of your hair or at the roots? The TT website says you can start at the root, but the thought of that freaks me out!

Oh, and has anyone tried it on dry (moisturized, of course) hair? Just curious.

i used it on damp hair that had a creamy moisturizer. i'm not sure i'd use it on dry hair. everything i've read for "us" is don't comb dry hair. this is sorta like a comb so that was my logic.

hum...I'm going to keep an eye on this. My issue is that I can detangle in the shower with conditioner and my paddle brush like a breeze but I'm a heavy shedder so I loose a lot of hair naturally. I'm not sure if this is going to make that much of a difference since I shed so much, but it might make getting those dayum little balls out. I'm on the fence about purchasing right now.

My question: for folks that are heavy shedders, does it make that much of a differnce? For folks that get knots and balls at the ends of thier hair, does it make removing the balls/knots easier?

With the Tangle Teezer, it was much better than with anything else Ive tried. The paddle brush was a no go for me. It snagged my strands too bad even with my hair wet & soaked with conditioner.
A hairdresser used this on me before a long time ago and I didn't realize it was suppose to be like Jesus hand detangling your hair himself! I would have brought stock in it back then lol.

I may have to go get it now.
I Just called the Sally store by my job and they're in stock... headed there after work to buy one...

P.S. I hate you all for enabling me

yup lola , im doing a valentines day giveaway on my blog and this will be included, gotta share the wealth

this is a great tool
I bought this back in September and prefer to any other comb or brush I've tried. It doesn't pull or rip my hair. My only complaint is I can't really get close to my scalp but I'm a lazy detangler anyways. I really should be detangling by sections.

so i'm guessing it's not hard to hold? i've been reluctant to buy this b/c i normally like my tools to have handles but the way everyone's raving i think i'll have to give it a shot.

For those of you who wash and go, do you have to deal with the lost of definition that typically comes with detangling? I know that when I use a wide tooth comb or denman, I get a massive fro, which is cool sometimes, but not when I want to wear my coils defined. I have been finger detangling as of late, but I know that doesn't get out of the shed hair.

You alll have me wanting this thing really bad now. I saw reviews but that thing looks like a monster to me especially considering what a disaster that denman (aka the ripper) was for me. I have yet to read a bad review about the tangle teaser. So my question for you all is, is this the only comb you are using or are you dentangling with a wide tooth comb first? Also, is it akward to hold?

Calling Sally's now to see if they have in stock.
Finally 100% natural. I'm embracing my curls.

the teeth are soft and pliable. the bend and move with the hair. no snapping or popping. the teeth are 2 different lengths and very close together and soft. i only need to go over and area 2 times, maybe 3 if it's tangly. like someone else said. it didn't get retangled, not when i took the twists out or the next day. awesome!!
