tangle teezer...why does it work?

Tonight is wash night and I'm going to see how well it does for my hair. If it works as well as everybody says it does, I'll put the Denman in permanent storage.

@ Luvmylocs, I stopped questioning why it works after the first time I used it I'm just so glad it does lol
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.

I could never be just a finger comber or wide tooth comber. And I like TT better than the Denman
I don't think I see a difference in the number of shed hairs. (darn tangles) I've used this thing twice and I'm way overdue for trim, so maybe I'll make an assessment after that. It did cut down my detangling time to about 20 minutes from an hour, so it's ok.
Whoop whoop!

This gets 2 snaps in a circle!! LOL Thank you ladies for this thread. I went to Sally's last night and got the tangle teezer. It works like a charm, much better than the Denman in the distribution of product. I need to get another so I have one in the shower and one with my styling products!!

As someone with very fine and thin hair (if you look at my hair wrong, it gets splits and knots), I am amazed at how this thing works. The Denman shredded my hair when I used it for ONE week. My single-strand knots have reduced considerably and very few split ends with the Tangle Teezer. AMAZING!

I just couldn't resist and bought the purple one last night (I was a little pissed with my Sallys experience because I called before I went and got some ditzy chick that I could tell she didn't know what the TT was and instead of saying so, just said they didn't have it. I went anyway, and not only did they have it, it was across from the register!!!).

Anyway...I used it this morning for my wash-n-go and got a little freak out when it immediately slipped through. I almost thought I missed my hair. What I loved was the fact that my shed hair virtually zip and that my conditioner wasn't slinging all over the place like it does when I detangle with my shower comb. I also think I can cut down the amount of condish I use with the TT. I got great clumpage and thick curls when I rinsed out the condish, which I don't normally get until I apply stylers...then I had to ruin it by finger combing my leave-in and BM Curly Butter Tomorrow I'm going to try to apply the products without finger combing and lightly go over with the TT and see what happens. All and all I'm very pleased and so thankful for this site!

Children's Natural Hair Care & Styling Blog:

so I was visiting my parents in the bay and I got this today. I LOVE IT.

I only used this brush today no other tools (not even fingers). I rinsed my hair with conditioner then used it to detangle. Very easy, no tugging at all, and I had the smallest ball of hair I've ever had at the end of a detangling session. And I didn't not have to use a wide tooth comb first, all I used was the teezer. It glides through tangles and I have no pesky knots, just smooth hair from root to tip. It may very well replace my paddle brush

It does take some getting used to because of the no handle, but I kinda like it without one

If you haven't already, get this!!! SRSLY, get it!
I think I'm gettin' one.

I NEED ONE!!!!!!

The annoying thing is, I walked past a whole stand of them last week but then I read a thread on brushes and a few people suggested the Aveda paddle brush, so I got that instead. Its ok, I guess, but now after reading this thread and watching about 10 youtube reviews, I want me one of these!!! You ladies are just pushers!!!
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
I bought the pink one last night and now that everyone is saying that you can use it to distribute your stylers, I will go back and get the black one. They didn't have the purple one when I went last night. I can't wait to try it. I'll report back tomorrow.
