I have used a standard Tangle Teezer since 2011, I also have the Compact Styler which is useful for my handbag and more recently The Wet Detangler which has a handle. Even though they have been designed to fit in your hand I have lost count the amount of times I have flung it across the room.

I have naturally straight hair that doesn't tangle that easily, it is mid way down my back. During 2020 I had some major issue with my hair where I was losing a lot of hair. I lost about two thirds of my thickness and I ended up cutting about 20cm off the length.

Which is why I bought another, more gentle Tangle Teezer. Unfortunately when I bought it there was no choice in colour, this shade 'mint violet' and a all pink 'pink dawn'. It is exactly the same size and the 'teeth' are in the same formation as traditional one. 

The difference is in the flexibility of the the 'teeth' they are 30% softer than the original, you can feel the difference in it but it isn't a massive difference.

Another claim is 85% less tugging, I don't know how they measured that but I found it pulled hair out of my scalp less than the standard Tangle Teezer. Because the 'teeth' aren't as rigid, it jumps over any larger tangles rather than pulling the hair at the root.

So overall I don't think you need both this as well as the standard Tangle Teezer, I found it helped me to be able to brush my hair and reduce the amount of hair being pulled out from my scalp. My hair is finally staying in my scalp now and growing back, I don't think that is purely down to the hair brush but it did help and I will continue to use this over my standard one.

  1. I have never needed such an item. My hair doesn't get tangled at all! It is straight and just above my bra clasp length. It was longer but chopped some off last year haha! It has grown back nicely. I don't really suffer from split ends either oddly enough. I dyed it black a few months ago but that seems to have faded back to my browny colour! I might try the black again, I liked it. Anything is better than blonde....my hair hated it. Felt like straw and was soooo dry no matter what conditioner and treatments I used. Pity as it looked okay, hair says no, so no it is to blonde!

    1. I've used one for years, I like to dye my hair black too but at the moment just trying to keep my hair in my head. I think its the bleaching the makes the ends really dry, its been a long while since I bleached mine so don't remember what it felt like.
