Often my hair can by with days worth of brushing and I’ll end up with a ball of knots and a handful of strands lying on my bathroom floor. It is without a doubt that I leave my hair to fend for itself when it’s dry and when I have no time. My fingers have been its comb for the past little while. Fortunately, the Wet Brush and the Tangle Teezer landed in my hands and no longer will I be combing my hair like the Little Mermaid and her fork.
The Wet Brush is a detangling hair brush that works with wet hair as the name says, but it can be used on dry hair as well. It features Intelliflex bristles which mean that it’s thin, strong, and flexible. On top of the bristles are little balls called SoftTips which massages the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles. These bristles are strong to comb the knots out of the hair while preventing any pain.
I don’t usually brush my hair when it’s wet since it’s more delicate and I’ll end up losing more strands than I lost while washing my hair. When my hair is wet, the thick hair becomes even thicker so I had to move the Wet Brush down a large amount of hair. I’ve felt a bit of a pinch from time to time and notice a few strands stuck between bristles, but it does a smooth job in keeping my hair neat especially when I am blowdrying my hair.
The Tangle Teezer is also a detangling hair comb, but the looks and ergonomics are completely different. Rather than bristles with Softips on the ends; the Tangle Teezer has shorter and uneven teeth like bristles that flexes and flicks the knots when it glides through the hair. It is designed to fit in the palm of the hand and the compact size is super adorable! It kind of reminds me of a little hedgehog!
Because my hair has a lot of layers, I notice the Tangle Teezer does a superb job in separating them and makes my hair look more styled. I have a lot of pesky knots at the ends of my hair and the Tangle Teezer goes through them due to its thin and dense bristles.
PS – I chose the pink and purple Tangle Teezer…and I had no idea that bright pink would be SO hard to photograph closely, I’m sorry guys!!
I’m not some comb-nista (when I see a comb costs like $30 at the drugstore, I am so confused as to why,) but based on my hair type, I felt that my hair likes the Tangle Teezer slightly more. However, when I’m heading to China (in a few weeks, so much last minute planning to do,) I will bring the Wet Brush with me since I feel it is stronger than the Tangle Teezer if it gets banged around in my suitcase.

At the end of the day though, it comes to personal preference and when you prefer combing your hair, when it’s wet or when it’s dry? I will make good use out of both of these. Also props to Tangle Teezer and the Wet Brush coming out with neon colours for their brushes, makes it so much easier to find in the bathroom and my room!
The Tangle Teezer and the Wet Brush can both be found on Nail Polish Canada (free shipping on orders over $25.) You can also find more variations and styles of the Tangle Teezer on their online store.
Do you have a brush of preference?
(Btw, do you guys have any advice of what to do/eat in Guangzhou, China and Macau? Let me know down in the comments below!!)
