The Detangling Hair Brushes


If you have very long hair, you'll know just how frustrating tangles are. Mine is almost down to my belly button now and it gets tangled at the slightest gush of wind, after its been tied up or after I've been lying down. Oh and let's not forget after I've washed it, that's the worst. Getting out of the shower to a tangled head of hair is very frustrating and there's been many occasions where I've almost hit breaking point after not being able to get a brush through my knotted mane. However, I have found measures to prevent this now with lots of conditioner being one of them and good quality detangling brushes being another.

I seem to have quite the collection of brushes that claim to detangle the hair without causing any damage so I thought I'd give you a little overview of them in case you're in the same position I was a few months ago dreading to wash your hair because you have to face the unbareable tangles! Trust me, I've been there and dry shampooed one too many times just to avoid the laborious task.

First up we have the Denman Tangle Smoother and Wet Brush which are both great for using on wet hair. They both look like standard hair brushes and whilst  I'm not overly keen on the design of the tangle smoother, the brush itself has metal pins which means the brush glides through tangles with ease. The Wet Brush on the other hand has slightly more gentle bristles so it's great to use on wet hair when the hair is more vulnerable to breakage. The brush has 'Intelliflez' bristles which are thin, strong and flexible as well as 'Soft Tips' which are gentle on the hair and massage the scalp as well. It's firm whilst still being gentle which I really like!


Next up is the Tangle Angel which was designed by award winning hairdresser Richard Ward. This is the first detangling brush I ever bought as I love the heart shaped brush and angel wing design. It's so cute! The design has a purpose too - it's been designed this way so you can hold it around the wings for more control and detangling or by the handle for every day brushing. The bristles are soft and flexible so it's really gentle on the hair. It also has anti-static and anti-bacterial properties as well as being heat resistant.

Finally we have the Tangle Teezer, the classic detangling brush that I'm sure you've all heard of. The Tangle Teezer was the first detangling brush I'd ever heard of and the beauty world went a bit nuts for it with it being hailed a holy grain hair tool. Now I have to say, although I do like it and it's conveneient for popping in my hangbag due to its compact packaging, it would have to be my least favourite from the four I've mentioned. I feel I can't really get through all the tangles in my hair with this one so it isn't one I'd use on wet hair or when my hair is particularly tangled but I like to use it for general day to day brushing as it's more gental on my hair than a regular hair brush. 

Do you have trouble with tangled hair? Is there any other brushes or products you would recommend?

  5. These sound lovely and I have thick medium length hair and since it's curly it gets tangles easily. The wet brush sounds lovely and I'll look into all of these.

  9. I love my tangle teezer as it helps so much with my thick hair and also is perfect to pop in my handbag. However I am intrigued by Wet Brush. I may have to add this to my wish list.

  11. I found the tangle Teezer didn't work at all for ne. Just smoothed over the top layer of hair and didn't actually untangle the knots. Have the wet brush and although it does not work as quickly as on the qvc demonstrations it is the only brush that gets my knots out it just takes me a while!

  19. I absolutely love this post! I don;t think I've ever seen a post on hair brushes!! Well done! :) I have to say though that I'm not the biggest fan of the tangle teezer. It just doesn't seem to work for my hair. Maybe it's to do with how thick it is or something I don't know. I am a huge fan of the Tangle Tamer though. It's like my holy grail hair product. It's just incredible for using on not just wet hair but dry hair too! :) xx
