Next up for a review is my Tangle Teezer. I have been wanting one of these forever, in fact I added one to my Amazon wishlist way back in 2011! I finally got around to buying one about two and a half weeks ago.
So far, I’m pretty impressed. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hairbrush before that doesn’t have seams on the bristles. I’m obsessed with growing my hair until it will grow no more, and I bleached it for years so taking the best care of it is really important to me now.
My hair is quite thick, and the bristles are long enough to get all the way down to my scalp, even at the nape of my neck. This is something I was worried about because the bristles didn’t look very long, but it’s actually fine.
Something I didn’t expect, was that the Tangle Teezer gets extremely dirty, really fast! After just seven days, it was full of lint. But, I Googled it, and I discovered that you can actually put them in the dishwasher!
I was a little apprehensive but I reasoned that I couldn’t be hand-washing it every single week so I took a risk. I put it in the top shelf because it’s plastic and it turned out great! I’ll definitely be doing it again.
It does feel gentle and I haven’t felt like my hair was being ripped when I use it, even if it’s a bit knotty. I’ll give it 4/5 stars for now, major bonus points for being dish-washerable, but I’m going to review this again in a few months or maybe a year and report on whether I feel it’s made a difference to my hair.
