I broke down and got one too. It was actually the last one in my Sally's! I really like it. It went through mini-me's wet, freshly-washed hair with ease.

2nd day hair is absolutely impossible for me to achieve, so I lightly mist my hair with a mixture of water and KCKT & water--just to barely dampen it, and loosely re-twist at night. Well tonight, I misted my dry hair, and detangled it with the Tangle Teezer, before re-twisting. I was little nervous at first, but I had no problems. In fact, it did a heck of a job, in very little time, and I lost less hair than I do when I detangle in the shower!

So far, the Tangle Teezer is a keeper for me!

well, i tried it on the children(type 2 to 3 range) first. they loved it & said it didn't hurt like the Denman.

I was skeptical that it would work for my type 4 but i was pleasantly surprised. It sort of reminds me of a wool comb combined w/ a pet brush.

A lot less hair came out. Dunno if that's less snaps or if it's not getting all of my sheddies. My hair definitely felt a lot smoother when i twisted it so I'm leaning towards the former.

I'm going to buy a couple more since things disappear around here and the children are already hooked on it.

Am I the only one who sees hair breakage from using the tangle teezer? I must be doing something wrong. I mean, I do like it. It smoothes my hair and detangles well, but I just can't get over these little 1-2 inch pieces of hair that are all over my hands EVERY time I use this thing. First, I tried it on dry hair prior to washing my hair. That took forever and I could literally hear the snapping of my hair. But then the next two times I tried it on wet hair with condish in and detangling was quicker and easier, but still those little hairs.

I soooo want to love this brush because I HATE the denman. Somebody please help me.

Is this best for type 3c and up? It looks like it would feel good on my scalp, but I'm just a lowly 2.

Nah mama. If you got a tangle or a million you should consider it. I have mine here due to all the buzz. Once I take my twists down, we'll see.

I got hair breakage too! I took mine back to Sally's. It's not for everyone's hair, I guess. Trial and error.

ok I'm seriously on the fence. This past weekend I finally detangled my hair after being in mini twists for three weeks and I lost an INSANE amount of hair. I'm talking a for real hand full. I'm naturally a heavy shedder, so this might just be from not detangling for three weeks but I'm not sure. After I finally got it all detangled, my hair didn't feel like it had lost any thickness and it did smooth my hair prior to twisting for a braid out. I think I'll try again on wash day this weekend and see what happens. If I feel like I'm loosing too much hair, this thing is going in the trash.

<---- kinda wondering if the TT is going to be the next Rio straightener. lol! but seriously, I'm going to watch my fro closely for any weirdness & breakage. at any rate, I don't think I'd use it on 3c-4 w/o loads o' slippy conditioner and holding the hair section out from the head.

Argh!

Now I'm on the fence.

I know I'll give in. It looks like it'll give me a nice head scratching, if nothing else.

Looks like you have dogs... they might like it if you don't. :-)

I did try mine on my Yorkie/Maltese mix. It didn't get the deep-down mats but his hair is pretty long now.

I'm keeping it for myself and probably going to get another to keep one in the shower and one on the counter. I'm a 3a/b and it works good for the tangles I get at the nape of my neck.

your hair is beautiful in your avatar. if it doesn't work for you don't use it but a couple of things that might help...only use it with a good leave in, do small sections (i did sections the size of my two-strand twists, i'd use the tt and then twist that section the go to the next part), start for the bottom and work up (don't go by the instructions in that booklet).

Thank you! I guess I was taking too big of sections. I was trying to use it with conditioner in my hair, and I'm used to taking bigger (well bigger than twist) sections for that. I'll try it again! And I definately won't look at the booklet :-).
Thanks

I used bigger sections, but my hair was wet with loads of conditioner.

I agree...ignore the instruction booklet. It wasn't written with the kinkiest, coiliest hair in mind. The guy who invented this does not have hair like mine. We all know that detangling "dry" is usually not a good thing, so follow what you already know. I don't ever comb my hair dry...when it's not blow dried/flat ironed.

Also, if you're coming out of protective styling, or a twist/braidout, take some time to "prep" your hair...lots of water and a good conditioner with some slip. Let it marinate for about a half hour or so, and then start detangling.
