Don't even get me started on the last to the party thing here. I know its been out since last year (if not longer counting the US and UK release dates) but after ages of lusting over it every time I saw it in Boots and reading about all the raving reviews online I asked for the tangle teaser for Christmas. I thought it was love at first sight when I saw the purple little brush that I had such high hopes and built up expectations for. But it was not meant to be.
I could just be my crazy knotty hair. It could be the shampoo I'm using or the lack of patience I have for my hair in general, but man this thing just refuses to work for me. Now your thinking ah shes only had it a few weeks, whats she on about. But I can safely put my hand on my heart and tell you I have tried ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Oh how I stood and brushed, clipped up different sections to brush, changed shampoo and conditioners, even tried it on wet, dry and medium damp hair. Nothing worked for me. I can tell you in confidance that I talk to my cats, I talk to furniture, inanimate objects and even myself when I think no one is in ear shot, but I can now add begging with my hair brush to the list of shame.
It breaks my hair and leaves me with lots stuck in the brush after - not cool(!), doesn't brush out tangles well and if anything it adds to the chaos that is my head. I really thought that this brush would be better then my Denman one that I've had forever but I find myself reaching for it to clean up the awful job my poor tangle teaser has done. Speaking of which I would recommend that good old trusty brush and its cheaper too at just €11.99, get it over here.
I'm scratching my head (no pun intended!) over this little brush. It looks lovely, fits in your hand perfectly and should be suited to my thinish hair but there you go. It costs a bomb too at €15.99 which doesn't help matters either. I'll continue to try and unlock the secret that is the tangle teaser over the next few weeks and report back to you all, but I have a funny feeling that its going to end up in the bin if it pulls out anymore of my hair, I'll be bald in no time! You can find it here.
I'd really love some of your thoughts on this brush. Do you have it? If you do, what was your experience with it? Are you bald and crying like me or do you have perfectly brushed locks?
