First Purchase of the Year- Tangle Teezer

One of my 2011 Hair Resolutions is to spend no more than $300 on Hair Products/Appliances.
What better way to track this then on my blog! I guess this can be like "Haul" or "Review"(not promoting, just letting you know what works or didn't work for me)  Posts. But there wont be many because I'm on a budget.

I heard great things about the Tangle Teezer as far as detangling natural and relaxed hair. My relaxed ends don't get tangled much, but my new-growth is something else, especially being 14 weeks post. I need to avoid tangles and matting as much as possible or this stretch would be counter-productive. So, I went out and purchased one yesterday. I of course used it yesterday as well, not only because I was anxious to try it out, but my hair needed a good detangling session.

So here goes my Review:

What they Say:
Your perfect hair care partner, Tangle Teezer Original is a gentle pain free hair detangler that has been referred to as the miracle brush that detangles like nothing else. Its secret is it allows you to manage and style your hair as never before, transforming tangled hair into stress free, style-able hair and encouraging your hair’s natural shine and thickness to return

What I Say:

I like it...I really like it! Never has my 4B(really kinky,course) hair detangled so easily and come out really soft at that. The brissles glided through my new-growth so effortlessly and easily. I felt like it removed shed hair that was stuck between my strands for a while. However, I did have 5-6 broken hairs, but this could be normal wear and tear. This is the first and last detangling brush I will purchase.
Tangle Teezer has been returned to Sally's due to more breakage then normal.
How I used it:

1.)Sectioned Hair of in medium to small sections
2.) Sprayed each section with moisturizer(more moisturizer on roots)
3.) Lightly Detangled Relaxed ends with Wide Tooth Comb
4.) Combed through new growth with Tangle Teezer, then lightly glided through relaxed ends
* This could work better on wet hair loaded with conditioner which I will try next.

Purchased from: Sally Beauty Supply (can be ordered on Amazon, but it's more $$...this item also originated from the UK)

Cost: $10.00 ($9.49 with Sally's card) I paid $8.40 because I had a 15% off coupon

*Remember, if you purchase any hair products from Sally's (maybe other places too, just not sure)  and you don't like can always return them as long as you have a receipt. Do not let your money go to waste. Also, on the back of most products there is a number to call for a refund as well.


  1. You must be a mind reader, I just ordered this item the other day and I'm waiting for it to arrive so I can try it out. I've got 18 weeks of new growth which needs some serious help!!

  2. @ Tola- haha..I hope it works well for you..looking forward 2 your review! 18 weeks of newgrowth?.. I can just imagine!

  3. Between you and BHM I am soooo tempted to buy this thing!

    Great review!
