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'm an natural with long thick curly hair. My hair tangled so easily so wash day can be stressful! But, not for me anymore. This Dr tangled works great on my hair when it's wet or dry!

I'm start by saying I had this brush for 5 years and it's finally given up on me lol.
I have tried many brushes but none have came close to this this brush!
I'm ordering another one now after finally retiring mine.
I 100% recommended if your hair is prone to knots!

I paired this brush with Tracee E. Ross's Pattern Detangling Nectar and these are the only products that have worked for my daughter's long, curly 3C hair. I knew when I saw only one left in the store on the shelf that it must be good.

At first this brush freighted me because of the bristle, but this has changed the game when it comes to my wash day routine. It helps me detangle and define my curls. I only use it on my wet kinky hair and it is the best. This is the best detangling tools for naturals

Hair will gradually become more tangled when replacing comb with a tangle teezer. Tangle teezer only appears to work as it glides around tangles. Product is not meant to replace a comb. The tangle teezer teeth flex prevents hair from being truely tangled free.

I absolutely adore this brush. It makes my curls way more defined. BUY IT

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!

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.

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.

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.
