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.
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).
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.
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.

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.

If this question was for me, then no I meant broken hair. No white bulb on either end, and is extremely small, like it doesn't even form a full curl.

Thank you! I guess that means I probably damaged mine. It does say in the instructions not to expose it to hot temperatures or rest it on its teeth or else they may become deformed. I've done both :-/

What happened? It's no longer detangling, or is it not keeping the hair detangled?

it's not detangling. she's been sick for the past few days so i haven't touched her hair and when i finally did, the tangle teezer did next to nothing in getting them out. it could totally be me being impatient though.

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!



do u think it works on twa's cuz mine isn't even 3 inches but i have such THICK n KINKY hair and i hate using those detangling combs???? been hearing good things about it though so wanna try it

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?
"You're all wicked, evil enablers!", she says as she grabs her purse and speeds away to the nearest Sally's...

If you find it then you're lucky. I gave my back up tangle teezer to my friend and wanted to go buy another back up. 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.

Try ordering online. That's what I did. I just wasn't feelin' the runnin' to every Sally I know.

I did the same thing. At first I couldn't find them at my Sally's. But then the lady found some behind the counter. 10 bucks!

A little late but I still wanted to say thank you!

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

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...
