Worked for detangling but created split ends!, 5 Mar 2011
I have natural type 4 hair. I was very excited to use this product after seeing the rave reviews on Amazon and other hair care sites.
I first started using the Tangle Teezer on dry hair- and wasn't impressed. I then tried it when my hair was wet with conditioner, and damp with leave in conditioner. It really helped to get rid of tangles and left my hair feeling soft, but I noticed a large amount of hair left in the Tangle Teezer- more than what I would usually find when detangling my hair with a wide tooth or medium sized tooth comb.
I continued to use the Tangle Teezer to detangle my hair.I started to notice that I was beginning to have small pieces of hair come out when I was either moisturising or styling which made me aware that my ends were starting to break off. I took a closer look at my ends and saw that I had serious damage up my hair shaft! My ends were in decent condition prior to using the Tangle Teezer.
The Tangle Teezer is now in the bin! I wish I realised the damage that it was making to my hair sooner than I did. I had to cut off at least 2 inches of my hair to rectify the damage.
My advice stick to your usual detangling methods, even if it takes up more time- it will result in less damage.
