What they say it does:
Tangle Teezer's new blow-styling brush will blow you away!
Having revolutionised the way we detangle our hair, Shaun P, inventer of the Tangle Teezer, has created a ground-breaking, problem-solving brush. One that blow-dries your hair.
Faster drying, volume, shine, professional finish. Now you can experience all four with our break-the-mould Blow-Styling paddle hairbrush. The innovation is all in the teeth. The formation allows for free flow tension whereby hair will pass through in a snake-like motion. Doing so will remove excess water from the surface layer, leaving the hair ready for blow-drying. There's no need for pre-drying which will help minimise tangles.
What our reviewer said:
The original Tangle Teezer brush has made life easier for lots of mums and nans who have to deal with knotty hair - as well as the children whose hair it is!
I tried this new brush on my medium-length fine hair, but I soon realised it can only be effective on thicker hair. I tried to brush my hair with it but the plastic teeth just dug into my head without catching my hair at all and the effect was hair that was even more flattened than when I started.
My daughter's hair is thick and long, so I thought she'd be ideal to test the brush. Unfortunately, unlike the original Tangle Teezer product, the experience is not pain free even on thick hair. The teeth are short and do not bend. In my effort to brush and dry at the same time, it was too easy for the plastic teeth to make contact with the skin. It was hard to be gentle as I couldn't really 'brush' the hair at all.
The fact the teeth are plastic and don't bend they make it really difficult to use. I did persevere and my daughter's hair was shiny afterwards but no more so than after a normal blow dry and it was no less tangled.
Perhaps this is a product best left to the professionals.
