[REVIEW] The Wet Brush VS. Tangle TeezerSunday, May 24, 2015
I may be the only person who never combed their hair wet but it's because I always thought it was really bad for your hair. TURNS OUT I was wrong. If you're using a boar bristle (or anything of the like) those can actually damage/tear your hair follicles and you should absolutely NOT use something like that on wet hair HOWEVER, you CAN use a comb on wet hair. Just as long as it has the right bristles! Today I'll be comparing two brushes specifically designed to comb out your wet hair.
Disclaimer: Nail Polish Canada sent these to me to compare. I was not influenced or paid for this review.
THE WET BRUSH
The Wet Brush's Intelliflex™ bristles are super thin, strong and flexible. These bristles will glide through any hair type combing out tangles effortlessly. The bristles’ flexibility enables protective and pain-free detangling while the SofTips™ on the very top of the bristles massage the scalp to stimulate circulation at the follicle. They are firm enough to comb through knots, yet flexible enough to be gentle on the scalp. Our IntelliFlex™ bristles bounce back to their original form after each stroke eliminating all the hair breakage and pain that used to be associated with brushing your hair. The Wet Brush can be used on wet or dry hair and works on extensions and wigs. --The Wet Brush
The Wet Brush has these long, strong and flexible bristles that have plastic bulbs at the tips. I know we're used to seeing these kinds of bristles and I used them so often as I child that I strayed from them in my adult years. I never really understood their purpose but The Wet Brush claims it makes for a great head massage (and it's true!). I also image they help with the detangling process as well.
It did it's job well, I combed my wet hair with ease and I must say I love how the matte texture feels in my hands. It felt really great to hold!

The authentic Tangle Teezer - Made in the UK. The Tangle Teezer brush will break the cycle of broken hair and give tangled locks the brush off. A revolution in detangling hair, it has the ability to flex and not pull upon contact with tangles, gently and effortlessly delivering smooth and shiny hair in an instant. No wonder why celebrities and leading hair salons can't stop talking about it. Winner of the 2010 Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards! Ideal for all ages and all hair types. -- Nail Polish CanadaIn contrast to The Wet Brush, The Original Tangle Teezer doesn't have the plastic bulbs at the tips and has a layer of long and short layers. I quite like this design and prefer without the plastic bulbs myself. THE DESIGN is SO ORIGINAL! It really feels great to hold (and I would give it a perfect if it had the texture of The Wet Brush). It's a very sleek design with a diamond pattern between the bristles and the handle which makes it a little more chic, imo.
They both come in REALLY FUN COLOURS! I opted for black because if I liked them I wanted to be able to use them during work and black is professional, yo.

PREFERENCE: I personally prefer THE TANGLE TEEZER, I thought it combed my hair just a little bit better and I really enjoy how it feels when holding it.
