tangle teezer...why does it work?

I am still scared to not comb through my hair first and then use the tangle teezer...I will try the next time I wash my hair!!!

Finally 100% natural. I'm embracing my curls.

Okay..this is crazy, something that works this well has to be doing something bad to me. Is it causing me cancer?? Ripping my hair to shreds but i don't realize it? Killing a kitten everytime it passes through my strands!?

Just used it on my whole head and man..this thing is really the biddness! If it's not a fluke then i seriously will be buying more of them as soon as i can for me and family/friends. l0l

I just ran to Sally's a half hour before closing to snag one. I'll be washing and detangling tomorrow, I hope it lives up to the hype!

medium/coarse | dense | normal porosity | 4b/3c with random sprinkles of 4a.

Quick first impression on dry hair: Not blown away.

We'll see the end of this week on wash day....
I finally tried the tangle teezer. It has a small booklet and as you read through it you begin to think perhaps this brush is truly a miracle brush. So I decided to detangle after I dc for 45 minutes with a mixture of alter ego carrot hair mask and shea moisture african black soap conditioner.
I have super thick,low porosity grazing hip length hair(shrinkage is not a laughing matter) so I had my reservations since the denman brush was a complete disaster. I seperated my hair in sections and started detangling my ends first. It seemed okay in the beginning but eventually I noticed it was snagging my hair I began getting flashbacks of the denman. I had a more then larger amount of hair on the TT that I'm not used to. I was horrified. I had to use a wide tooth comb eventually it just didn't work out for me. The bristles are softer than the denman but not good enough to detangle my hair I will continue using my wide tooth combs.
Someone asked earlier I'm not sure who, about the difference between the TT and a shampoo brush. From my observation the bristles on the TT are randomly spaced out from short to tall it is not just one size throught the device. Also the mechanism that holds the bristles in place on the TT is thick while the SB is thin. HTH
Dang it , I'm SOLD on it already...all this has convinced me!!! Will buy one this week but can't use it now anyway, I'm in a protective style till the end of FEB (BRAIDS)...uuuggghhhh. *carry on*

Ok, so I worked with the TT today and because I knew I was going to have to spend some time detangling this was a good test run for it.

I detangled dry first, well, oil on dry hair. The TT was able to get those balls of coils that can get on my ends from the shed hair well, but my roots laughed at the TT. My hair laughed until I pulled out my regular shower comb to do the real work. TT will never work on my roots, but is nice for getting at the ends on dry hair. I probably won't use it on dry hair again.

Next use - I used the TT again, when I detangled with conditioner under the shower. It was a little better. I noticed the clumping of curls. Still needed to pull out my comb on certain sections of my hair.

Decided to try the TT distribute my leave in conditioner. It was ok. I needed to use smaller sections than I wanted. Definitely wasted time going into even smaller sections of hair. Again, it was good for the ends and decent as I went further up. I was also concerned because my hair was so smooth after my DC and in certain sections, the TT would cause fuzz.

Please note, my hair coils on itself all on its own. I can detangle once at one stage and will need to detangle again at a different stage. This has always been the case for me. And again, I had kind of neglected my hair the past 2 weeks.

For me though, no matter how easy it is to detangle my hair, the bristles are too short and not strong enough. I have dense hair and I would have to make very small sections for the TT to work its way through. There were times where it seemed like the TT was doing work because the bristles were actually bending and giving to the will of my hair. When I followed with my wide tooth comb to check, I would run into tangles about halfway up. The give in the bristles would make me think it was sliding through my hair, but my wide tooth comb told the real story.

I'll try it again when there's less work needed, but right now, I'm not wowwed by it. I can use it since the TT seems to work best for getting the little balls out at the ends where they may occur. I'm thinking I would still need to use my wide tooth comb with the TT in most other cases, especially the closer I get to my roots.

I still like over the other brushes I've used so I use a combination of fingers and TT.

Ok. So I bought the pink one to try as a trial and I am now the proud owner of a black one as well! I will use the pink for detangling in the shower and the black one to distribute product. This thing glides through my hair like butta. It's amazing for me!

my favorite thing about the tangle teezer is product distribution. i can put just a dime size of my gvp conditioning balm on each of the 6 sections of my hair, and when i brush it through, sometimes thats even too much! ♥
