All of that! I was coming out of twists when I tried to do this. I only finger separated. It still detangled, but like I said, the broken hairs. SMH.I used bigger sections, but my hair was wet with loads of conditioner.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).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.
