The Tangle Teezer is a specially designed de-tangling brush that doesn't damage the hair even when it's wet and at it's most fragile. I have to agree that this is the best thing I've tried for brushing my hair when it's wet, but it's also fab on dry hair too. It's brushes out your hair without pulling and dragging like a regular brush, and I don't find that it's pulled strands of hair out like my normal brushes would either.
It works because of the way the teeth of the brush are designed. They're positioned carefully to give the optimum amount of spacing and the teeth are super flexible, which is why they don't drag and snag the hair. The brush is also shaped to sit well in your hand - it doesn't have a long handle like a normal brush. It takes a little bit of getting the hang of because you hold it so differently, but now I'm used to it I love it.
As you can see, my Tangle Teezer is purple and glittery, but it comes in loads of other pretty colours too and they also make smaller handbag sized ones which I think I'm going to get.
You can get the original Tangle Teezer like mine for £8.45 from Amazon here, and like I said it also comes in a travel size and a cute kid's version shaped like flower.
