A few years ago I purchased one of the original Tangle Teezers. My dad thought I was strange and he was wondering why I paid so much for a brush that looks like it was made to brush dogs.. Yep I can feel your eye-roll. Don’t worry, it was the exact same eye-roll that I gave him. That purchase was one of the best purchases I ever made. Since using the original Tangle Teezer my hair has become much healthier. It breaks less, sheds less and I feel like I am actually not ripping my hair out for once.
I was contacted to trial out the relatively new Tangle Teezer Blow-Styling Hairbrush* and because of my past Tangle Teezer success, I couldn’t say no. Today’s post is my Tangle Teezer Blow Styling Hairbrush Review.
The Blow-Styling Hairbrush I was sent is for short to medium hair. Quick claims:
– This brush is intended to create a “salon professional finish”
– The bristles are quick drying
– Removing hair from the brush is easy and doesn’t damage the teeth due to ‘unique cleaning grooves’
– You will experience no dragging
As you can see from the above photos, the bristles on this brush are quite different. When I used this brush on wet hair straight after my shower, I was so happily greeted by the usually Tangle Teezer style, no dragging. I brushed it through the ends first to remove some knots and after they were removed, I moved up to the top of my scalp. Even as a normal brush without heat, this is definitely one to remove knots gently. Some of you who have perhaps tried the regular Tangle Teezer and found it difficult to handle because of its shape might be interested in this product for brushing alone.
Now moving onto the ‘blow-styling’ elements of this brush. To be honest I am not the most creative of people when it comes to my hair. When I leave my hair without taming it, it is predominantly straight with a little bit of waviness towards my ends. Using this brush, I shaped the front section of my hair inwards to my face to emphasise my bob which has now become a lob. It does a solid job and I find that I get a similar effect once I run my hair straightener through once. Having said that, I’ll probably opt for this brush instead because my hair dryer is definitely less intense than the heat coming from my ghd.
The bristles are definitely quick drying and I feel like the brush actually caught little water at all. That makes me really happy because after I finish drying my hair I don’t have to worry if I want to brush my hair again with the same brush out of the fear of spurting it with more water!
I’ve been using this brush for around a week now and the hair build up in the brush isn’t significant by any means.
To sum up my experience, I think that I’m still going to use the original Tangle Teezer to remove all of my knots. However, I’ll be reaching for this brush on days where I want to style my hair but without using my straightener.
