Behind the Brand
What is a Tangle Teezer?
True, it could have been a tool for untangling fishing line but no, it's a world famous hair brush brand of course!
In 2003, a British hairdresser called Shaun came up with the idea to develop the first professional hair detangling tool, to be known as the Tangle Teezer. In creating the perfect hairbrush for detangling hair, Shaun had a pretty impressive industry background to draw on. His hairdressing career began in 1978 and his early hairdressing days included years working at Vidal Sassoon salons in London, New York, LA and Boston before spending time at Toni & Guy in Manchester.
The first Tangle Teezer hair brush known as The Original was launched in 2007 and stocked by Boots the Chemist followed by Toni & Guy before the rest of the world discovered it and an amazing 35,000 brushes made their way into salons and stores in the first twelve months.
Ten years later and Tangle Teezer had taken the world by storm and the company had launched their tenth brush, the Back-Combing Hairbrush. In the same year the company scooped four 2017 Beauty Awards, for their innovative hairbrush designs known as The Original, the Thick & Curly, The Ultimate and the Blow-Styling Round Tool.
Tangle Teezer found its niche as a detangling hair brush brand due to the innovative two-tiered flexible teeth design which detangles wet hair and dry hair with minimum fuss, breakage and damage.
Is Tangle Teezer good for hair?
While colour processing and heated styling accounts for a lot of damage to hair, mechanical breakage also rates highly. Trying to untangle wet hair, stretching and pulling hair with blow-drying brushes, even tugging poor quality brushes through dry hair can cause extensive breakage.
The Tangle Teezer has seen worldwide success because it detangles wet and dry hair with less damage. With designs for different hair types, Tangle Teezer detangling hairbrushes such as the Fine & Fragile have flexible teeth which are 30% softer even than The Original, designed to care for delicate or thin hair which breaks easily. The Fine & Fragile has been proven to give up to five times less breakage to fragile hair.
Research has resulted in a complete range of different Tangle Teezer designs, including the Wet Detangler with 325 unique, flexible teeth designed to tackle tangles and knots so that wet hair is detangled safely and quickly.
The Salon Elite is the detangling hair brush hairdressing professionals choose while the Thick & Curly is a great solution for those with coarse, unruly or hard-to-manage hair. Getting a handle on managing thick and curly hair is easy when you use the Thick & Curly brush to create fabulous hair.
Is the Tangle Teezer good for hair? Absolutely!
How to clean your Tangle Teezer
Remove any hair from the teeth of your Tangle Teezer and place it into a basin of warm, soapy water. Use an old toothbrush to gently brush between the teeth and remove any product build-up on the base of the brush. Rinse thoroughly, and leave the brush with bristles facing upwards to air dry. Easy!
