Tangle Teezer Compact Styler: ‘Shaun the Sheep’ Is My Hair’s Best Friend

Hola Beauties!!

How are you all doing? The winters are already here and I must say I am thoroughly enjoying the chills and that hot cuppa of my favorite ginger tea. I love everything about winters. My usual oily skin is tamed and flawless, I can get away with light makeup look and look fresh as ever, and the season to flaunt my best and cutest sweatshirts, as well as time to buy some new and trendy winter wear. And want to know the cherry on the cake? My birthday falls on 20th of Jan, in the midst of the coolest time. Sigh! I love this season. The only thing that bothers in winters, is the scalp dryness. My hair starts behaving real weird. If I oil too much, it becomes greasy, if I don’t, it becomes dry and flaky with dandruff. So, this time, I am all set, not just with a good routine and products, but also a gem of a hair product, that I am going to share with you guys, Tangle Teezer Compact Styler – The Instant Detangling Brush.


Product Details: What can I tell you about the product and the packaging, apart from the very obvious fact, that I fell in love with the design, at first sight. This design, “Shaun the Sheep”, named after the founder Shaun Pulfrey himself, is a limited edition one, and a tad pricey. But then, I have learned something during these years of beauty and skin care research of mine, if you want the best, spend more and buy less. You can splurge once and buy something which lasts long and benefits long, or you can spend a lot more by buying cheap and less durable products, which might not be as good.

Price: The actual price is Rs 1199/- (Itna mehenga kangha!!! My mom’s reaction 😛 ). You can get this on line for Rs 999/- on flipkart and jabong, and for Rs. 879/- on amazon. I think this is available off line too, somewhere in Mumbai, as that was the place from where it was shipped to me.

Packaging: It comes in a transparent cube like box, with the features on one side, details about the brand on other, and about the inventor, on the yet another side. It looks so cute that for a moment, you just don’t want to open it. All you would want to do is keep it packed in front of you and keep staring and admiring. 😛 I literally did that, till I realized I should put it to the use that I ordered it for. 😀 😀

My Experience with Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Detangling Brush:

First of all let me tell you about my hair. They are super straight, waist length, sometimes if I let them grow, below the waist too. But blame it on that “nazar lag gayi” thing, or the fact the my hair and scalp are so sensitive that I cannot use a shampoo for more than a month, I have faced problems like severe hair fall and dandruff every once in a while. Now that I have finally understood the “volatile” nature of my hair, which are so moody that they can put a PMSing girl to shame, I can finally say that I can tame my tresses. Also, since my hair have volume, they tangled a lot. Since I had to leave for classes/ office in the morning, and I had to comb my hair wet, and that too partially, it led to hair fall, and pathetic tangles when my hair were dry. Don’t ask the plight my hair have been going through the past 6 months, I will start crying.

Then I came across this wonder. I had read rave reviews about Tangle Teezer, but was skeptical to invest in it mainly because of this price. I mean, come on, who spends nearly a thousand bucks on a hair brush, now that I have got it, I know why was it so raved about, because it really is worth every penny that I have spent on it.

It’s a small brush, fits in your palm, nearly. Also, the curvaceous design is just a perfect and comfortable fit in your hand while you are brushing your hair. Its bristles are of different sizes, and I guess that is the reason that it works better than most of the other inexpensive but ineffective alternatives that are available. When I first saw the bristles, my reaction was, how can it reach out the deepest roots and smoothen out each and every tangle, it is just so freaking small!! Guess I am wrong, and I have no qualms about it.

It goes inside the deepest and messiest of tangles and sorts it out, and does not even take much time. Though I must say that it takes a little more time to sort out those heavy and bad tangles, but even that is a lot less than my regular comb. I brush my hair with, and voylla, super straight and salon like hair, is the result that I get. There is hairfall, but is very, very less. Also, my hair fall has decreased dramatically after I have started using it. Might be because of the massage that it gives to scalp, or because of the fact that it applies minimum pressure while dealing with messiest of tangles.

Now, what makes it different from the rest of Tangle Teezers? The size, and the additional cover cap provided. Trust me, now I am not scared to leave my hair open and go on a bike or a public conveyance. Just one visit to the washroom and a few strokes with this mini styler, and my hair are as good as new, with minimal hairfall. Plus, due to the cover, there is no risk of getting the bristles damaged or dirty. You can pop this mini wonder in your handbag, and your mane is ready to take on any havoc, because this styler is going to sort it out in no time at all.

After you have used it four to five times, then is the time to wash it thoroughly. I just soak it in dettol-water solution for some time, brush a bit, wash it with clean water and let it out to dry. Since my hair and scalp are sensitive, I am very particular and a bit procedural when it comes to cleaning my hair tools. I just hope that the design doesn’t wear off anytime soon. I just love this “Shaun the Sheep” 😛

You can use it in bath too, along with your conditioner. Although there is a separate Tangle Teezer for that, but since this one is specially for travel purpose, while on the move you can use this on both wet and dry hair, and also to spread out your conditioner evenly, in the bath. It will give you just uniform awesome smoothness that you never get by using your fingers.

I have read in some of the reviews, that people have added the con of not being able to use it with hair dryer. For them, I would say that please open your eyes. It is clearly written in the instructions, not to use it with heat, so it is not really a con. Also, though it is absolutely excellent for open hair or those little messy styles that you can put up with your hands after brushing, you really need to have a pocket comb, in case you want to have a neat plait or pony, because you can brush, but not comb your hair.
