I've used similar detangling brushes before that were meant to be dupes for the Tangle Teezer and while they were okay, I was never really "wowed". The bristles were always too short, too stiff, or too wide-set to do anything to fix surface snags while leaving big knots closer to the scalp. I have super straight, fine hair that gets as tangled up as a pile of necklace chains just by looking at it the wrong way, so I'm always looking for ways to prevent having to spend time tediously pulling individual strands out of knots to avoid losing hair or having to cut out particularly stubborn knots.
Using a wide tooth comb while my hair is still damp helps a lot but throughout the day, I need something to take care of small snags before they become problem spots. The Tangle Teezer is unique in that it has both long and short bristles interspersed throughout the brush, which helps to get the core of tough knots. The package says it's effective on both damp and dry hair. I tried it on damp hair after showering and to be honest, it wasn't as effective, but on dry hair it is AMAZING. I never really understood the hype behind a hairbrush but I completely get it now.
I've noticed I'm losing a lot less hair now, particularly while in the shower. The brush is the perfect size and length and feels really comfortable in my hands (it doesn't make my arm tired while brushing). It also comes in the prettiest pastel shades (I have a mint green shade called Jade Lagoon) and I can't wait to try the rest of their line. I love that they have specific brushes geared to different hair types. The Fine and Fragile brush really is super gentle on the hair. I never feel any pain on my scalp when I encounter a knot like I do with other hairbrushes.
I was lucky enough to get a Tangle Teezer brush in the vox box program! For some reason hair brushes are kind of fascinating to me and I enjoy trying new ones! I like the minty aqua color of this one, and the tiny bendy bristles on my fingers. It's incredibly lightweight, with an ergonomic handle, which is nice. I don't actually brush my hair every day, since I have curly hair. I most often brush my hair before washing it or dying it, or occasionally to assist in smoothing out an updo. I do think I like my original wet brush better, because it seems to be a little bit stronger and can get through the hair more quickly. This one is so gentle that it actually struggles with the tangles and I have to go over them a few times. I do think that someone wanting an incredibly gentle brush would like this. It probably does a better job to prevent breakage and hair pulling because of how gentle it is. I think I would have liked it better in my childhood when I struggled more with tangles and had much longer. This would probably be a great one for Mom's struggling with their kids' tangles!

Super gentle brush, doesn't hurt to detangle my hair, and rip out any knots. Really easy to clean the brush. Can use it on wet or dry hair. It's fabulous for fine hair and gentle enough for damaged hair. Got my friend one for her bday and she loves it

Although I already had a couple "wet" brushes, I decided to try this tangle teezer and am so glad I did! It's compsct so i can take it anywhere. Works great on both dry and wet hair. I like to brush through shampoo, conditioner, and hair serums using this on my thick, coarse, wavy hair. The bristles feel great on my scalp, like a little massage. I actually threw my other brushes away that I had for years.

This is by far my new favorite brush. It glides they my hair like silk. It has been a dream as my hair can get pretty tangly. Will love brushing my hair now. I highly recommend this to everyone and the price is so affordable also.

I loved this brush! This brush was great, I was able to detangle my hair without my hair falling out too much! I've recommended this brush to my sisters and friends as well!

My thinning hair is in worse condition after using this brush. I've noticed an increase in breakage, and more hair in my brush than I've had.
Jess from USA
This brush is truly lovely. It feels great on your head and in your hand. The sound of the bristles is beyond satisfying. It did get a little hung up in my hair. My hair is very corse, but medium-thin due to health concerns. If my hair was as thick as it used to be this unfortunately would be kind of annoying. Def going to buy a few more. Please make a handleless one!!
LauraK from Alabama
This brush is hands-down the best detangling brush I have ever used! My eight year old has an incredibly tender scalp and very long, fine hair. This brush glides through even the toughest of tangles and doesn't pull or snag. 1000% buying a backup in case we misplace our first. Seriously, I can't recommend this brush enough!

I was tentative about my online/pickup purchase but the Ulta rep affirmed my decision on the Tangle Teezer for fine hair and Im so glad! Easy though the hair and easy to clean. It is a dream product.
Elizabeth from USA
Bought it like a year ago and its become my favorite brush I've ever used. I love everything about it right down to the color.
Sarah from NY
I have thin hair. And was experiencing some hair loss due to weight loss. And this product helped me with that. I am not loosing as much hair now because of the brush switch. It glides themrough my hair very well and is very gentle. It is really good quality.
Denise from Glendora, CA
I read the reviews and this brush definitely holds up to the hype. Easy grip handle, bristles massage my scalp and leaves my hair looking great! I don't use the brush on my hair when it's wet. Just for brushing and styling.
Samantha from Chicago, IL
I bought this a few months ago for my partner, and he loves it. Not as much hair on top as he used to have, and this is gentle on what he has left. It's also super easy to clean. Excellent all around.

Wow, I cannot say enough good things about this brish. I have fine, straight but fairly thick hair. When I first used this on my wet hair I didnt think it was going to do anything because it didn't seem like it was even getting the whole way through. After a few strokes, I was amazed. No tugging, no pulling whatsoever. I always detangle before I shampoo but my hair just gets so tangled because of how fine it is. This detangled it faster and more gently than anything I've ever used. The bristles are tapered too instead of having the little ball things on the ends so it's really easy to clean too. Bristles are really flexible, tapered and alternate between short and long lengths. Doesn't get those annoying little lint balls stuck in it. It's also super lightweight, almost to the point that I wasn't sure if it would even be sturdy, but it really is! Highly, highly recommend for fine hair that easily tabgles like mine. I got mine on sale but would absolutely pay full price.

I've been using a Wet Brush for years. It always worked fine, but I needed a new brush and decided to try something new. Insert the Tangle Teezer for fine hair!!! I have collarbone length thin, fine hair and I am OBSESSED with this brush. I use it after showering once my hair has air dried a bit. It seriously glides right through all my tangles (and I have a lot of them). My hair feels so smooth after using it. Then I use my heat protectant spray and blow dry. This brush is seriously a game changer!!! I can't recommend it enough.
steph from Nebraska
I don't find this brush to be anything spectacular. I normally use a wet brush, this thing feels/looks kinda cheap and it worked the same as my wet brush. not worth the purchase IMO
just me from dyersburg, tn
My hair is thin and baby fine. every brush ive ever had has always caused breakages and didnt do well when my hair was wet. this brush blew me out of the water! while i was skeptical of the price, i decided to try it out as i needed a new brush if i didnt want to face the world with crazy drying hair. no regrets! now my hair is soft, non frizzy, and manageable while wet! no more tangles and harsh pulls while wet! my niece has thick hair with baby fine strands, she used this brush and now wants to steal it 😆 this kid hates brushes because of the pull. highly recommended all the way!

Soft brush see less hair in the bowl
Beauty4Ever from Las Vegas, NV
This brush is truly the best brush that I have ever used to detangle my fine hair! Other combs and brushes pull my hair out, rather than smoothing out tangles.
I recommend applying leave-in conditioner first, to prepare your hair for styling…and to give your hair moisture. Then use the brush to detangle. Viola! Tangles are gone, and your hair is ready for anything!
neanie from Indiana
My hair is usually easy to break, but this brush doesn't do that. It glides through easily and the super flexible bristles never snag. I also like it for wet styling my curly hair.
DPB from Sevierville, TN
I have fine curly hair that tangles easily. This brush is unbelievable! It glides like butter, does not pull hair, and results in less breakage. Highly recommend it!
Jen from Sacramento
Amazing .. glides so smooth.

I love using this brush in my kiddos hair specifically because I know I won't get any complaints. Tangle teezer makes the only brush that can glide through wet hair without causing pain or damage right out of the shower. We have bought more since we got our first and always have one on hand!

I think after using this brush, I refuse to go back to traditional brushes that has a cushion under the bristles, why, because the traditional brushes gets dirty, dusty and hard to believe that it's hygienic. With tangle teezer brushes, you can easily remove lose hairs and wash it and let it dry and know that it's ready to be used for next time. Also, super gentle on my scalp and detangles without pulling hair. Definitely would recommend it.
