Tangle Teezer Wet Brush

The Wet Brush has become America’s biggest selling hairbrush – overtaking everyone’s staple hair item the Tangle Teezer.

Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage than dry hair, and should be treated with care. Ever since my teenage years I have used a wide toothed comb to untangle wet hair, moving on to a Tangle Teezer when it hit the wide stream market in 2008 -after being turned down by The Dragon’s Den the previous year – and the newest addition to my hairbrush collection is The Wet Brush.

The Wet Brush’s bendy ‘intelliflex’ bristles are kind to wet hair – helping to protect against snapping, tearing, and pulling. The non slip handle is definitely an added benefit, its compact colourful rival the TT is harder to keep a good grip on.

In terms of scalp stimulation – which is one of the benefits  of The Wet Brush – I find the Tangle Teezer’s bristles firmer and therefore a better boost to circulation. I am obsessed with scalp brushing, and actually if you want the ultimate scalp brushing experience try Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair Paddle Brush.

The Wet Brush – which looks very much like your standard hairbrush – can be used on wigs and hair extensions – the bristles are longer than Tangle Teezer’s therefore being suited to thicker hair.

The Tangle Teezer is never going to leave my handbag, it’s size is too convenient. I love the design of it and the huge array of colours in the range. The Wet Brush has a new home next to my shower, I’m always extremely careful with my hair when it is wet, and I trust this brush and its flexible bristles to protect it. For thick hair or hair that really tangles definitely try The Wet Brush. Thinking of my goddaughters, I’m convinced that children, will forever reach for the ultra modern and unique Tangle Teezer!

5 Comments on Tangle Teezer vs The Wet Brush

  1. I have curly hair and the tangle teezer was swiftly passed on to someone else. It didn’t work at all so I will be trying the wet brush after reading this. Shelly.

  2. Interesting read…as a hairdresser my tangle teezer has proved a god send in salon and great as suitable for wet or dry, curly or straight and sure I saw some new designs at the wholesalers with a short handle added.
    Can the wet brush be used on dry hair and how does it fair and does it work for all har types when wet – straight an curly? Thanks

    • Funnily enough I have the tangle teezer with the short handle added! Absolutely love that brush. Yes this can be used wet or dry, straight or curly. It’s just that little bit more sturdy, and definitely better for thick hair than TT.

  3. Thank goodness! I’ve been dithering on the Wet Brush for ages and now there’s a sale. I can finally spring for it (coupled with a bunch of things, of course). I’m glad I stumbled upon this post before I hit order. Thanks so much! Eager to receive the brush so I can experience its goodness for myself!
