Review and Comparison: Tangle Teezer vs. Wet Brush


NailPolishCanada.com was kind enough to send me these two hairbrushes for a review and comparison post. I've known about Tangle Teezer for a long time, but never bought it because I thought it was just like any other brush, except with great marketing tactics. The Wet Brush is brand new to me, so I was interested in trying it as well. Continue reading below to see which one I prefer using!

Claims: "The Wet Brush helps you detangle hair without pulling, tugging, or tearing. This brush works great for all hair types and textures, whether it’s wet or dry, curly or straight, thick or fine. It can also be used on hair extensions and wigs!"

NailPolishCanada.com offers it in four different colours, so I chose the pink. : ) The handle is super smooth, but not slippery. One review on their website says the pink dye came off when it came in contact with water, but that didn't happen to me.  There really isn't anything unique about the bristles or handle of this brush. It definitely didn't help my wet or dry hair detangle. In fact, it pulled and tugged. :( I really wanted this one to work out because I'm a fan of the handle, but in reality, this was just like any other hairbrush.
Claims: "Made in the UK. The Tangle Teezer brush will break the cycle of broken hair and give tangled locks the brush off. A revolution in detangling hair, it has the ability to flex and not pull upon contact with tangles, gently and effortlessly delivering smooth and shiny hair in an instant. Ideal for all ages and all hair types."

Tangle Teezer has other styles/accessories that I'm not familiar with that you can check out here. The shape of this brush is a little awkward in my hands (maybe because they're small?), but I like how there are grooves to help us fit our palm and fingers in place. The lack of a handle also bothers me because I've never used a hairbrush without one, so it took a few days for me to get used to it. Other than the missing handle, I've been super happy with this. I don't exactly know how, but the Tangle Teezer really works in detangling both my wet and dry hair! SCIENCE! lol But no, really... is it the shape? The bristles? I'm not sure, but I'm a Tangle Teezer believer now. If it wasn't for NailPolishCanada, I would've just scoffed at the brush's claims and never bought one.

Prior to using the Tangle Teezer, I've read other reviews claiming that it doesn't work. My hair length (which is short right now) may have affected my experience with both of these products, so please take my reviews with a grain of salt.
