Tangle Teezer hairbrushes review

If you’ve ever been to the hairdressers and noticed those colourful brushes that sit in the palm of your hand, then it’s highly likely you’ve just met a Tangle Teezer! This brand has taken over the haircare industry in the last few years and for good reason. I remember seeing these at my hairdresser’s salon in Sydney over a year ago and ever since then have always wanted to try one out. So when I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Tangle Teezer to test out their range I was really excited! Here’s my honest thoughts on their brushes and if they are worth it.

Reviewing Tangle Teezer’s range of brushes

Tangle Teezer brush range

Tangle Teezer’s brushes are made in Great Britain and they have a huge range of brushes for all hair types, in a rainbow of colours. Whilst the original Tangle Teezer brush focused on detangling, their brush range also includes options for styling and blow-drying your hair.  I was sent four different types of brushes to test out which included three detangling brushes and a styling option. Before I get started on the review, I want to point out that I have pretty thick hair which is naturally curly/frizzy. I regularly get Keratin smoothing treatments which has taken out a lot of the frizz and relaxed my natural curls but the thickness is still the same. So let’s take a look at each one and how they worked for me.

Thick & curly Tangle Teezer brush

As it’s name suggests, this detangler is designed specifically for thick, curly or afro hair. It’s bristles are longer to ensure it can penetrate thick strands along with a mixture of smaller bristles which assist to smoothen the hair cuticle. The great thing about this brush is that it  does actually brush through my hair to my scalp and it doesn’t pull on the hair at all. I’ve only used it on dry hair but imagine this would also work on wet hair as well. Overall this is the best brush out of the four but that is probably because it’s suited to my hair type and because I can see it working on both dry/wet hair. RRP: $21.95

Wet Detangler Tangle Teezer brush

Purpose made for detangling wet hair, I really love this brush! I’ve used it already in the shower and it’s much better than the wide tooth comb I was previously using. This brush is super soft on wet hair (which is super fragile) and made combing through conditioner effortless. I also appreciated how easy it was to clean as well as the extra long bristles as well. I would absolutely recommend this brush for all hair types and my hair actually felt considerably smoother due to using this. RRP: $21.95

Ultimate Finishing Tangle Teezer brush

Out of the four brushes I tried, this was my least favourite but that is probably because of how I was using it. Tangle Teezer advise that the Ultimate Finishing brush is designed for “Dry styling your hair with updo’s and back-combing, adding volume and texture”. I don’t’ backcomb my hair nor need more volume or texture due to how thick mine is however perhaps people with fine hair would benefit from using this brush. I used it whilst I was blow-drying my hair to compare it to my trusty paddle brush and I preferred my paddle brush over this one. As I mentioned before, this brush probably isn’t designed for blow-drying and for anyone with my hair type, it’s not one I’d recommend you purchase. RRP: $29.95

Compact Styler Tangle Teezer brush

Honestly this is my favourite out of the four, purely because it’s size and design is perfect for carrying in my handbag or carry-on luggage when travelling. It’s got a protective cover which maintains the condition of the bristles and detangles & smooths the hair. The versatility and practicality of this brush is a stand-out, especially as I have long hair and find it does get tangled quite easily throughout the day when I wear it long. RRP: $29.95

Where can you buy Tangle Teezer in Australia?

Tangle Teezer’s range is absolutely worth checking out as they have options for all hair types and uses. I will be using the Wet Detangler and Compact Styler the most followed by the Thick & Curly brush. Their products are reasonably priced in my view and available in Australia at Priceline, David Jones, Mecca Maxima, Price Attack and Hairhouse Australia stores.
