Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash: £11.99*
Tangled hair is a nightmare. Mine gets tangled easily, even just after wearing a scarf. I always carry a comb with me but it can be painful to gently untangle the mane. Same with a brush in general too. With a brush, my hair snaps will snap which is never good and can be painful, very painful to feel, see and hear. So I turn to the Tangle Teezer.
This is the aqua version where it is hollow so water will not get trapped inside when it's used in the shower. I've always believed that you're never meant to brush your hair when it's wet because it's fragile at that stage. This took me a while to get use to the idea. I'd use this to brush through dry hair first to remove any knots before I get into the shower. I wouldn't say this makes it the process fully painless but it does reduce the pain dramatically, not wanting to cry or scream.
I've used this whilst shampooing and I didn't feel like I need to add much pressure to brush my hair. I find using this whilst conditioning is the best. It helps spread the conditioner, hair mask or oil a lot more evenly as it glides smoothly coating each strand I hope. Before using it, I could immediately tell that there wouldn't be enough grip on the side. It is easy to hold onto but it did slip out every now and again if I had used a hair mask or oil. I've noticed that hair breakage has decreased which is a huge plus for me as I'm growing out my hair. Much better than a wide tooth comb.
The bristles are a bit harsh on the scalp but it does the scratching for you if you an itch in the midst of brushing! There are other vivid colours to choose from. This may be on the pricey side but I definitely need to buy the compact version for my bag.
