Tangle Teezer Blow Styling Round Tool Brush Review

As I've mentioned countless times, I have the most unruly, difficult to deal with hair. My hair is a mix of curly, wavy, and super duper frizzy! So my whole life, I've been on the never-ending quest to find hair tools that will make my life a little bit easier. This quest never seems to end. But, I think I'm one step closer thanks to the new Tangle Teezer Blow-Styling Round Tool.. basically, it's a round brush for blowing out your hair, but this one's different.

Tangle Teezer became famous for their detangling brush. It was innovative and it worked. It was designed to help us brush through wet hair without pulling our hair out. (My cat has stolen mine as he really loves it too!).

Next generation Tangle Teezer brushes are just as innovative if not more so. They are designed to help us blow dry our hair quickly, and like the first generation of Tangle Teezer's, they are also designed so they don't yank out our hair.

There is a new paddle brush and the one that I'm reviewing here is the large round brush. It comes in a small size as well. The large size that I'm featuring here is meant for medium to long hair.

When I first received the brush, I was very skeptical that this brush would work on my hair, and I was actually little scared that it would actually end up ripping all my hair out because the brush is rather hard and has a rubbery texture.

My fears were put to rest after the first blow dry. The brush actually glides through my hair without any pulling or snagging. It grips the hair well so there is a good amount of tension to smooth out my curls. It reduced my frizz by about 80%. And, I do feel that it cuts my blow drying time slightly.

After blow drying my entire head of hair with the brush, there were only a few hairs in the brush (shown below). Normally, my brushes are full of hair! I could literally count the few hairs that this brush picked up after blowing out my hair.

About the brush & Claims:
  • Invented by Shaun P. 
  • Designed, developed, and made in Great Britain.
  • An innovative blow-styling round tool that delivers a quick blow-dry whilst giving volume, shine and natural root lift. 
  • Ideal for all hair types
  • Quick drying results, no pre-dry needed
  • unique teeth configuration delivers free-flow tension to allow the hair to dry with volume, natural movement, and shine
  • Styles hair from wet to dry to give natural waves and curl without any pulling or tugging
  • No need to place the hair dryer nozzle on the teeth 

The front part of my hair is the frizziest and does need a bit of a touch-up. However, I blame this on user error as it could be blown out smooth if I was better at doing my hair. Overall the results are impressive to me considering how difficult my hair is for me to straighten and smooth it out and how quickly I got these results.

After using this brush, I immediately gathered up all my other round brushes and put them away since I no longer have a need for them. 😍

This brush is a game-changer for me! Was my hair perfectly blown out like the salon? No. But, that's user error. This brush has given me the best blow out that I can do by myself with a round brush. My hair is left mostly straight with very little frizz (about 80% reduction). and some shine (not easy for damaged and bleached hair like mine). Not only that, but I lose much less hair with this brush! I've previously used everything from ceramic to natural and synthetic bristle brushes and this brush is completely different and it does what it claims. As I get older, I value each and every strand of hair my head more than ever. For that reason alone this brush is worth every penny!

Almost forgot to mention, because of the design of the brush, it's also super easy to clean!

  1. Wow Amy your hair looks great! I've never used a Tangle Teezer, but I have tried blow drying with a round brush before (albeit a small one) & well, I ended up getting tangled lol. I'm un-co when it comes to my hair though.
