Denman Tangle Tamer here.
The main differences between the Tangle Teezer and the Tangle Tamer are:
- The Tangle Teezer can be used wet. So can the Tangle Tamer, but the latter gives silkier results on dry hair.
- The Tangle Teezer does not have a handle. I prefer my brush to have a handle, like the Tangle Tamer does.
- The Tangle Teezer doesn't get that dusty. The Tangle Tamer is a dust magnet.
- The Tangle Teezer's bristles are less soft and flexible compared to the Tangle Tamer - the Tamer is therefore kinder on knotted hair.
- The surface area of the Tangle Teezer is larger.
- My theory is that, if you have fine hair, go for the Tamer because its bristles are more flexible.
- The sturdier bristles make the Tangle Teezer good for travelling. And easier to clean. The Tangle Tamer's bristles seem more fragile and you need to be careful while cleaning.
- Both come in different colours and designs. My Teezer is Cosmic Purple while Tamer is a hot pink.
- Blow-drying with both works okay. I use a Head-Jog detangler to blow dry, but more on that another time.
- Both are made in the UK.
- Both are equally gentle on your scalp.
- You can drop both on the floor, nothing happens to either brush or floor. I've tried.
Which do you need, if you have normal/frizzy/wavy/curly/straight-ish hair, the Tangle Teezer or the Tangle Tamer? Both. One for daily use and one for travel :) No, that wasn't diplomatic. It is purely my opinion. I use both. It depends on hair-type and comfort preferences. And I paid for both myself; no PR, freebie or bribe.
