Why This Is The Best Brush Ever


tangle teezer brushes

There are some products that are just so good that they completely dominate their market – like Coke in soft drinks and GHDs for hair styling. This is what Tangle Teezer is for hairbrushes, and we have yet to meet someone who doesn’t love them, and for $12, we can understand why. After all, the proof is in the sales – over 40 million sold globally in the last 10 years!

If you’re yet to try or hear of a Tangle Teezer, then here’s the DL: Each brush is created with long and short teeth to glide effortlessly through the hair, detangling and smoothing as it goes. The long teeth detangle without pulling (or hurting) and the short teeth smooth the hair cuticle for a glossy finish. It’s our ultimate everyday brush – it makes brushing quick, painless, and weirdly satisfying!

Not only do these brushes do exactly what they say they do, but they’re also extremely well-priced, ranging from $10 to $16. Plus, they now have a huge collection that works for every hair type or hair need, from thick curls and extensions to heat styling and back-combing brushes. Tangle Teezers also last a really long time; we’ve had ours for years and it still looks as good as new.

We tried out the full collection to help you guys choose which brush is best for you:

For Everyday: The Original, $12

The first ever Tangle Teezer design, this brush fits in the palm of your hand and is safe to use on dry and wet hair for all hair types and textures. You’ll be able to brush through your hair in seconds, plus it comes in a ton of different color combos, and who doesn’t love to choose a funky hairbrush color!

For Extensions & Styling: The Ultimate Finishing Tool, $20

Designed for easy dry-styling of updos, this brush has longer teeth with softer tips which lightly detangle and smooth cuticles for an insanely shiny finish – we’re not sure how, but it works! The brush also works perfectly for blending in hair extensions, clip-ins and weaves, and smoothing over back-combed hair.

For On-the-Go: Compact Styler, $16     

Just like the original but smaller, this detangling brush fits perfectly in the palm of the hand and comes with a protective cover to keep the teeth from bending in your bag. There’s also a huge collection of cute designs, from metallic and glitter finishes to llama, flamingo, and pineapple prints.

For Volume: Back-Combing Hairbrush, $10

This back-combing tool has a greater density of teeth at the base, which compacts hair towards the roots giving extra volume quickly and easily. The design of the teeth also means they can reach deeply into each section without matting hair so that it’s easier to brush out afterward. If you’ve always wanted to backcomb your hair but hate the matted effect it leaves, this will change everything! It also works really well to brush through and part hair.

For Curly Hair: Thick & Curly, $12

If you struggle to get a brush through your hair, then you can thank Tangle Teezer for creating their original design with longer and stronger ‘firm-flex’ teeth that detangle curls quickly without locking in tangles or pulling the hair.

For Wet Hair: The Ultimate Detangler, $14

The Ultimate DetanglerThe newest brush in the range, the Ultimate Detangler is designed to be gentle with wet, fragile hair. We love that the design has a classic handle that makes it extra easy to use when wet, while the 325 unique teeth are flexible on knots and tangles. It’s also the perfect brush for combing through conditioner and detangling before we blow dry.

Tangle Teezer also make two heat styling brushes: a round, and a smoothing brush. So if you’re into at-home blow dries, check these out too.
