The Tangle Teezer.

This brush is the best hair brush in the world. I could just leave it at that but the statement needs qualifying. So, this is the best brush in the world because it took out every single tangle, knot and tat out of my hip length hair. I hadn't been able to brush or comb my hair for the past week because I've been rather ill and Scot was scared to do it for me in case he really hurt me.

I was considering getting it cut off but read about the Tangle Teezer on a Facebook group and bought one today when I saw it in Boots. I tried it out and lordy does it deliver on the promise it makes. It really does slip through the tats like a hot knife through butter. Of course, you do have to section your hair off (especially if it is as long and as thick as mine) and work through it that way. Highly recommended for anyone with tangly hair, especially small children. I wish it was available when I was a kid and had to endure my mother ripping through my hair every day.

The Tangle Teezer was designed by one Shaun Pulfrey, a colour technician (A hairdresser who specialises in colour), who upon seeing that some hairdressers had trouble combing out freshly coloured/highlighted hair, decided something needed to be done about it. He spent years perfecting the design so that the brush would glide over and gently untangle the hair, wet or dry, without making more knots or getting stuck.

He went to Dragon's Den to try to raise funding to get the brush manufactured on a larger scale, offering 15% of the profits but they rejected his idea with one saying it was a 'hare-brained idea' (Baboom-tish). Undeterred, Shaun managed to raise alternatives funds (re-mortgaging his flat, according to the Daily Mail) and Boots agreed to stock them. It now sells in over 27 countries.

What it does

It untangles dry and wet hair with little to no effort and pain. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots.

 Also useful for combing (well brushing really) conditioner through the lengths when washing hair.

What it doesn't do

It does not hold up to heat well so cannot be used for drying hair. It will melt into your hair and require scissors to remove. Don't put it on a radiator to dry either.

Mine cost £10.99 from Boots. I'm going to get the leopard print one next time.
