If you've found yourself constantly pulling at your hair when it's time to detangle, you may need to switch things up by using a detangling hairbrush.

Curious about how the NaturallyCurly Editors used the Tangle Teezer Thick & Curly Detangling Hairbrush? Here's what each lady had to say about it!
NaturallyCurly Editor Lauren Murray says:
I have a mix of 3c/4a coils and curls, and my hair is quite dense. If you stick your hand in there, it isn't coming back out. Hahaha!
I used the Tangle Teezer Thick and Curly hairbrush as a before-wash detangler, meaning I wet my hair with just water before I washed it, and then I detangled. I also split my hair into about 6 sections just to make the detangling process easier and put me at less risk for damage.
To me, it's all about the technique and how you're holding it. I found that when I flipped the tool backward, I had more control over how it detangled my coils.
I loved that it was fairly simple and straight to the point to use. It's also super compact, perfect for traveling!
NaturallyCurly Editor Cara Logue says:
My hair is all types of wavy—mostly 2B but also some 2A and some 2C. It's very dense coming out of my scalp, but most of the individual strands are pretty thin to medium width.
I usually detangle my hair when it's dry; in the video, I detangled it when it was wet. I start by finger-detangling, then use a brush starting with the bottom of my hair downward, working my way up to my scalp, with a lot of putting down the brush and using my fingers to get the more stubborn spots. The Tangle Teezer helps with some of these tricky spots—I think because of the varying lengths in the bristles.
It feels really good on my scalp—kind of like those wire spider head-massager things that you can buy at the airport.
NaturallyCurly Editor Kiana Tipton says:
I have type 3b, bleached, long, high porosity hair. My hair is usually difficult to detangle without conditioning with a regular wide tooth comb, but the Tangle Teezer Thick and Curly hairbrush works more effectively, leaving me with more time to enjoy my morning coffee before heading out for the day!
I used the Tangle Teezer after wetting my hair with a spray bottle, but I have also used it after coming out of the shower. It works well either way. I was able to detangle my hair without any additional products.
However, I usually do condition in the shower beforehand. After detangling my hair, I use my regular leave-in conditioner for extra curl definition. I love how the Tangle Teezer feels on my scalp, when brushing my hair I linger near the top because it feels like a gentle massage. It also detangles my hair without pulling on my tangles or leaving me with breakage.
