Tangle teezer has been a well known concept within the beauty world for years now. I can’t even remember how long ago it was when I first heard about them. They always intrigued me and I always wanted to try one, but somehow I never did. Until very recently when I came across this Tangle Teezer The Ultimate hair brush. It’s a bit different from the normal Tangle Teezers since it does have some kind of a handle to hold on to, but that’s exactly what I liked about it. I decided to take a leap of faith and buy it. I’ve been using it for a while now so I think it’s about time for me to review it. If you’re interested in finding out what this hair brush is like and whether or not it’s worth buying the Tangle Teezer The Ultimate, make sure you continue reading this post!
Just like all the other Tangle Teezer brushes, this one comes in one of those clear plastic boxes. Since it’s just the surrounding of a hair brush I don’t think that the look of it is that important, but for what it’s worth I think it looks okay. The main reason why I like the look of it is because the English or British flag is on the background. This gives it something more unique. But to be completely honest with you guys, once I took the brush out and had taken the pictures of it, I threw the box out. That might sound like something very obvious, but since I’m a packaging hoarder this is something pretty impressive for me. I just didn’t care for it too much.
Anyway, let’s start talking about what’s really important here: the brush. The Tangle Teezer The Ultimate is a black hair brush. Unlike most Tangle Teezers it’s actually shaped like a normal brush. Well, almost. This does have a bit of a tiny handle compared to regular brushes and it’s rather thick. But as far as Tangle Teezers go I think this is the closest in terms of looks to a normal hair brush.

On the back of the card that comes inside the packaging it says that this brush will gently detangle your hair and that it will make it smooth and shiny. It should work on both natural and synthetic hair and it’s for all hair types including hair extensions. It should be the perfect brush for finishing dry hair every day.
This last part of the claim tells us that this brush is aimed at brushing dry hair. Or well, finishing dry hair. To me this makes it a very specific product. It means that you can only use it when your hair is already detangled and you want to add a style to it. I don’t style my hair all that often, so that would mean I can’t use this brush very often. So, I decided to put it to the test and use it every time I’d normally use a normal brush as well. So when I’m brushing wet hair, when I’m detangling my hair in the morning, when I’m making a bun and when I’m actually styling my hair. I have to say that for all of those purposes it works really well. However, I do prefer my other brush that has a lot more and softer bristles for detangling wet hair. That’s just a bit more gentle on me. However, the difference between those brushes is very small in those two purposes, so you can definitely use this brush for wet hair too.
According to Tangle Teezer this brush has unique teeth that are longer with softer tips. This will lightly detangle and smooth cuticles for a high shine. It’s designed to achieve perfect up-dos, back-brush in volume and texture and to maintain and blend in hair extensions, clip-ins and weaves.
Looking at the brush from the side I get what they mean with the longer ‘teeth’. I will call them bristles from now on because somehow teeth sounds a bit cringy to me. Anyway, there’s also a difference in length between the bristles. Some are longer than others. And like Tangle Teezer told us, they are soft and quite flexible. This makes the brush really comfortable to use. Some of these ‘hard’ bristled brushes can be super rough on your hair and even painful and I don’t experience that with this brush.
In terms of the effects I like it. I do feel like it makes my hair nice and smooth and like it helps with the frizz. I also think that it does work really well when I’m for example straightening my hair. It makes it feel softer and more like real hair. This does sound a bit weird maybe but sometimes when I straighten my hair it tends to feel like one piece and it isn’t very flexible. This brush helps with that.
In terms of up-dos I’m not sure how much I like it. I do think that it makes the up-do a bit smoother than some other brushes do, but I don’t think it makes a huge difference. If you’re buying it for that I don’t think you’re going to get your moneys worth.
When it comes to detangling the hair I do like this brush a lot. It does it in quite a sensitive way. Not as sensitive on wet hair as my other favourite brush does, but I like it anyway. It does take knots out very easily and I feel like it gives me a very effortless yet pretty result. I am a huge fan of this brush when it comes to that!
All in all I do really like my new Tangle Teezer The Ultimate. I think that it might not be the best brush for people at home if you’re just going to use it for styling the hair and you don’t do that a lot. But if you’re a hair dresser or if you do actually style your hair a lot, this might be great for you. I personally use it for all purposes you can use a brush for and I like it for that as well. I love how lightweight the brush is, I like the handle and I like the bristles. I think this is a great first experience with the Tangle Teezer hair brushes.
With that being said I think it’s time to end today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it, and be sure to let me know what you think of the Tangle Teezer The Ultimate!
