How to Use
Rated 4.47 out of 5 stars
I have very thick 4b/c hair and my hair tangles at the roots. I have tried finger detangling, a wide tooth comb, and a denman brush. While those tools are great for detangling the strands of my hair, they almost never reach my roots. But this?! This brush is amazing! It goes through my hair like a knife through butter!
The only downside is that I find it a bit hard to handle. Because I detangle outside the shower, I am able to hold it without it slipping out of my hands, often. I can only imagine how it would be bouncing around my shower...
Other than that, I loove this brush!
Ive used this brush several things over the past few weeks, but typically end up switching back to my normal brush. I loved the feel and shape of the brush, it was incredibly comfortable and I felt like i had a lot of control. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like i could get the right amount of tension while brushing for it to really do anything. I'm unsure of what caused the feeling, but I think it had something to do with how sharp the bristles were. I was unable to get close to my scalp or brush my hair against my skin without getting scratched up. For reference, i have navel length hair and rely on getting a good amount of tension while brushing. As far as detangling purposes, it does a good job straightening strands out at the end of the day, but it's not so great at getting out the matts and knots that I end up with most days. The best part of this brush is that it's super easy to use on wet hair without stretching and pulling. Overall, it's a decent brush, but not so much for actually detangling. I would reluctantly recommend it. I think it would be perfect for people with shorter, less tangle prone hair, or those who are wanting a quick way to brush wet hair or smooth out their top layer.
** I received this brush for free for testing purposes.

I got this for my husband as he has long hair now and he was using my link purple one so I got this so its more masculine. HE LOVES IT!
Alai from Chicago
I just got this brush, I have very wavy hair but gets tangled super easily. I was having a hard time with a regular brush and this detangled it so fast and effortless! I will definitely be using only this going forward to detangle my hair.
Victoria from Santa Monica
Got this for my husband. His hair is super thick with 3A curls. He really likes it but he's had it for about 9 months, using it daily, and the bristles are already getting bent/warped. I'm going to re-order because it is a miracle tool for him. I just wish it lasted longer.
Alyssa from Oklahoma
I bought this for my boyfriend (3a hair, very thick) and he enjoys it. He has yet to use it on his wet hair but he's very thankful that it doesn't tug or break his hair. It's easy to hold and convient to clean
Mori from Harvest, AL
Normally I will detangle with my fingers first but I was actually able to use this brush and it worked just as well if not better.
No hair was ever pulled or tangled.
Honestly doing my hair will never be the same.

it's an awesome detangling brush for my thick curly hair but after about 2 months of use in the shower the bristles were all bent and twisted and short. overall it's amazing but it doesn't last forever.

I have the tangliest hair out of anyone I know-my hair is very long, wavy, and has to be up all the time at work and when I sleep. I'm also depressed, and have trouble doing simple things like brushing my hair when I'm not doing so hot. I get tons of large tangles, especially along my scalp by the back of my neck. Right now, this is the best thing I have found for detangling my hair. It takes care of small and medium sized knots with no issue. The large tangles, however, won't move without a detangling cream or spray. I really like to use it in the shower when I wash out conditioner to do a final detangle so I can apply product properly after washing. It is unfortunately a very flimsy brush though, and I have broken one of these brushes before.

I bought this because my stylist recommended it for curly hair. To have less breakage and pulling of your hair when washing. And I didn't think it was going to be so great. I can't believe I spent my whole life using a comb. This could have saved me so much grief when I was a child having my mom fight with my hair.
NativeNewYorker from New York
I picked this up for my Salon. It worked well to detangle and/or comb through product on every hair type I used it on; thick, fine, straight, wavy, or tightly coiled. Easy to sanitize and gentle on the most delicate hair. My only critique is I wish the area where you hold it, had a better grip. Not enough of an issue to keep me from picking up another or recommending it.

This brush feels a lot nicer than finger-combing! It makes it a lot easier to spread product through hair and helps me not over-use product. I also got it hoping that it would double as a shampoo brush to help with my dandruff, but it doesn't work too well for that (it doesn't claim to.) I notice after using it frequently, I shed less in the shower.
Niki from Oklahoma
this makes combing my hair out after a shower so much easier. I have very long, thick, wavy hair that gets tangled so easily, especially after the shower. using a pick was effective but time consuming, a wide tooth comb was a joke on my hair, & any other brush on my wet hair would damage it. I absolutely love this brush.
SM from Annapolis, MD
It makes it so easy to detangle my hair!!!
Heyli from San Antonio Texas
Idk why I didn't get this sonner it doesn't tug and pull on your hair and it minimizes the breakage love it!
NZ from turlock, ca
I was skeptical, but this actually works on my 3c/4a hair. used it as I was applying a hair mask after I took down month old braids. I retained length so well.
the only downsides are if you have product in your hands, this brush will fall out often. also, it is a little difficult to remove all hair from the brush. other than that, love it!
Miranda from Pennsylvania
I have one of these brushes with a handle and prefer it much more. I find this hard to control in a gentle fashion so I'm not ripping my hair out. This brand is great for detangling.
Jaime from Alabama
My niece has thick curly hair. It's always hard to brush the tangles out and she usually cries. With this brush it was so much easier and no tears.
Lo from Orlando, FL
I've got super curly hair with curls ranging from 3c to 4b with a couple 3b's mixed in. This brush is a game changer in detangling and helps with styling/product distribution.
SkinDrunk from Texas
My mom told me about these brushes, and I am shocked. I just tried it out for the first time, so let me tell you about my experience! I have been waiting on this in the mail, and I purposely didn't brush my hair for three days to see how this brush would perform. I experience episodes of depression, so when I'm at my worst I do unfortunately go days without brushing. My hair is very wavy and it is super thick. My hair isn't exactly curly but it can be with the right products. I was a little hesitant to get the thick and curly brush, because my hair isn't exactly curly or coiled. My hair is prone to tangles, and the wrong brushes give me breakage. I'm also tender headed around my crown. Let me just say... this brush amazed me. The long bristles are perfect for my hair's thickness. I don't think the regular size would cut it for me, but, again, my hair is super thick. I felt almost no pain with this brush. It seemed to glide and easily pick at the tangles instead of trying to rip out the tangles like most brushes do. I was also worried about not having a handle, but I never expected to love this design so much. It's so much more comfortable with the grip design. My partner has long 3C/4A hair type, and he could also use this brush. I love this brush, and I think I will keep using this. The bristles haven't bent and seem sturdy enough. My only complain: I wish this brush wasn't plastic. I know Tangle Teezer endorses this light weight design. I just wish it was more eco-friendly!
curly haired mom from PA
Gave to my 15 y/o son as a stocking stuffer and he said it's the best brush he's ever used. He has thick, curly hair that is just below his chin. He's only used it right out of the shower and he said it goes right through, never pulls or gets caught and his curls look great. Will be getting one for myself since I have the same hair!
jolielaife from undisclosed
I like to buy the extra sturdy version of these because I use them while I blow dry my hair. Eventually that could warp the teeth a bit but it's worth the repurchase! I love every single Tangle Teezer I've tried
prettygrlnic from undisclosed
I Looooove this brush!!! This is literally the first brush that I've ever owned that didn't rip and knot my hair. It also works in the shower, maybe even better because it's smooth sailing detangling TANGLE TEEZER - Thick & Curly Detangling Hairbrush .The only thing I could say is I wish they made the Thick and Curly with a handle, my hair is really thick and getting long so it would be alot easier with a handle.
kaylamdarby from undisclosed
10/10 the only brush I use to detangle and define my curls. The price is right, its super easy to use and the result is always amazing.
