tangle teezer...why does it work?

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.

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.

Thanks
Has anyone else noticed the very tip of the teeth on the TT? if you run a fingernail up the length it's smooth until you get to the very end where it catches on what feels like a sharp edge? It's very slight, not necessarily something you'd catch just looking at it.
You sure little hairs don't = shed hair? I mean, there's always going to be some level of give when detangling wet there always seems like there's rending of the hair.

I dunno if this has already been addressed but what have yall found to be the easiest way to clean this contraption cause I'm getting a lil tired of going through each row with my comb. Any suggestions?

i'm starting to hate this brush. i don't know if it's me or the brush, but it's not doing anything for baby girls massive tangles.

Question, for my ladies that don't have Sally's (like all the NYC-ers) where can you get the Tangle Teezer on the ground? do regular beauty supply stores sell them too?

So I caved and ordered mine earlier tonight.

Totally agree! I just posted a review on our blog. Love it! I'm shocked. I thought for sure it would rip hair out, lol. My almost 2 year old even let me brush his hair!

i used the tangle teezer for the 1st time the other day. luv it!!! it worked so good. i was skeptical because the denman didn't work for me at all. i have a k cutter comb and it sort of worked but my hair sort spun around on it and would sometimes snag or pop. i was trying to do finger detangling but i still matted up a lot. anyway this thing works for my type 4 hair and it's affordable ($10) !!!

my question is WHY does it work? i think it's the short, close teeth and the technique of keeping it close to the hair from the base up! i hope it's not a fluke!

yeah tangle teezer i'm hoping for some major growth retention now that i can detangle easier!

So I had made the decision to cut back on buying hair stuff this year, but, NOOOO, I had to check out this Tangle Teezer thread and what happens?

I called 7 different Sally's in and around Houston and they were all sold out and most told me they weren't getting anymore in. I'm nervous because I drop mine at least once every time I use it. If I break it, I'm in trouble.
Finally 100% natural. I'm embracing my curls.

Oh and I used the TT on my DD's dry, stretched hair and it worked great. She calls it her soft brush.


Children's Natural Hair Care & Styling Blog:

The nearest Sally's ran out of them as well. (I was grocery shopping at Walmart right next door to them anyway, so I thought I'd check.)
I don't really want to pay $6 shipping & handling for a $9 online item when Sally's is only two blocks from my office.
I can check again another day...

I have fine/thin hair and dread the thought of a Denman ripping out my out my strands so I'm curious to see if I can use this brush.
