I was in Boots on Saturday & saw the Denman Tangle Tamer & finally caved & bought it! (I know a whole £6) So I thought i'd do a comparison between this & my Tangle Teezer I have had for a while, they're are pretty much in competition with each other being that they're bright pink & hair brushes after all & both hyped up as the best things since air.
Lets hear the blurb;
Tangle Teezer £10.99
"The Tangle Teezer’s unique teeth configuration delivers rapid, pain-free detangling as well as polishing hair for high shine."
Tangle Tamer £6.50 give or take
"The super-soft nylon bristles gently glide through the hair, removing tats and tangles. An air-cushioned pad follows the contour of the head for smooth damage-free grooming. With a bright pink handle, this Denman hairbrush will be every little girl's favourite accessory!"
After hearing so many amazing things on the Tangle Teezer I bought one about a year ago & pretty much penned it down as a massive disappointment the second I ran it through my hair, I don't know if it is because the 'teeth' are too flexible so it doen't actually seem to do anything in my hair (you can see how much they've curved over the year) or the fact that the 'teeth' aren't long enough but this doesn't manage to make it through my hair when its wet or dry, I have to use my other hand to press my hair against it to get it to detangle anything. I may point out here that I don't have thick hair by any means, I have a lot of hair it's just not thick & nothing a paddle brush doesn't sort out with ease. The design of this is supposed to be ergonomic i.e. fit to the shape of your hand but I just find it annoying, it's based on the design of a horse brush I believe just one thing to note, I am not an effing horse.
Moving on ...
The Denman is the Rolls Royce compared to the 3 -wheeled equivalent that is the Tangle Teezer in my opinion, the bristles are longer, it gets through my hair with complete ease & smooths it amazingly without any annoying static behaviour I can sometimes get. It has a handle, is cheaper & all in all kicks the Tangle Teezer's arse, there's a reason Denman has been around as long as they have because they produce amazing brushes that aren't anything to do with gimmicks or unique selling points just quality functional brushes.
If the Tangle Teezer floats your boats & works for you then I bow down to your hair because mine don't like it too much, if you found the same thing as me that it doesn't actually work try the Denman it's amazing & the fact that it's 'every little girls favourite accessory' just makes it that much cooler!!
