Review: Tangle Teezer vs Wet Brush


Full disclosure, I don't think I've brushed my hair in 3 years. Half of that is just a fear of having half my hair fall out while I try to comb through it. There's something unsettling about trying to get through a tangle, then seeing a clump of your hair in the brush after. I'd rather live with tangles than see that. I have thin hair so I don't get huge tangles, but my hair does break very easily when brushed or combed.

Thanks to Nail Polish Canada, I had the chance to review two of the top brushes that everyone has been buzzing about: The Wet Brush and the Tangle Teezer.


First up, the Tangle Teezer.

Pros:

  • Bristles are thin and goes through hair easily. When there's a knot, the bristles are flexible and braise through the hair easily, which prevents harsh tugging on tangles. This does mean that it takes a bit longer to brush out tangles, but it's definitely less painful. 
  • Portability. Fits in the palm of your hand, so it's a good size to throw into your bag on the go.
Cons:

  • There's no handle, which isn't for everyone. I can see the benefit where it feels like holding the brush gives you more control, but I find it a bit awkward when I like to brush under or upwards onto my hair. 
  • Makes my thin hair super staticky. The plastic bristles on my dry hair creates instant frizz. My hair doesn't look dry or damaged from brushing, but frizz is frizz. 


And the Wet Brush.

Pros:

  • Combs through smoothly. The bristles grip hair firmly enough, but without tugging too hard. 
  • Classic brush style with the handle makes it easy to use. 
  • Since the brush is made for wet hair, you get really smooth hair right after you wash it that will last for a good amount of time.
  • Keeps hair looking healthy. I find that there's less breakage here than with a typical brush that pulls knots straight out of the follicle. 

Cons:

  • The only real con is that since it works nicely, I'm skeptical about whether or not it's the brush or whether it's the fact that my hair is fresh and conditioned, which could make it easier to brush through anyway.



Conclusion: I'd go with the Wet Brush. If you have thin hair, brushing your hair while wet is definitely best. No matter how good the bristles of the Tangle Teezer are, I just can't get over how frizzy it makes my hair.

  6. I'm the same. I also avoid brushing my hair so I won't have to see all the hair that comes out. >.< But I do love your review of the wet brush. :)

  8. You've reinforced my desire to get a wet brush! My hair is so tangled after I wash it, and using a comb takes so much time for detangling!!! I've broken so much hair by doing this!!!!

  11. I hardly ever brush my hair, for the same reasons! But I have thicker hair. It usually dries fine on its own but sometimes I do need to use the dreaded brush, haha. That wet brush sounds really great though!

  14. I have never tried wet brush, but I did try tangle tees and thought it was a little uncomfortable to hold.
