Is The Wet Brush Even Better Than the Tangle Teezer?

Battle of the Datangling Brushes: Tangle Teezer vs The Wet Brush

I have really long hair, and it’s a pain in the butt to brush it out when it’s wet. I was so excited when I finally found the Tangle Teezer earlier this year. It met all my all my detangling needs without ripping out my hair or irritating my scalp. A few months later, I came across The Wet Brush at my local Harmon and decided to give it a try. Here’s a short rundown on both:

The Wet Brush

The perfect detangling brush in the salon, in the shower, after a shower or at the beach! IntelliFlex bristles eliminate all tugging, tearing, pulling and ripping. No split ends, no hair loss, just HEALTHY brushing and detangling.

The Tangle Teezer

The Original professional detangling hairbrush is loved by hairdressers and used in professional hair salons. It’s a super smooth operator that works the minute hair is lathered and rinsed. Glides through wet, vulnerable and colour treated hair with no pulling, tugging or yanking. Hair peace at last!

Both brushes are excellent for detangling, but here’s why I think The Wet Brush works slightly better for me:

  1. Its bristles are a little longer, which helps to detangle a little more easily with virtually no tugging or damage to ends.
  2. Tangle Teezers shouldn’t be used when you’re blow drying your hair; The Wet Brush is a little more versatile.
  3. The Tangle Teezer has a cool ergonomic shape, but The Wet Brush feels more intuitive to use since it has a handle like the brushes I’m used to.

If I’m in a rush, I don’t use either. Both detangling brushes are really gentle, so they take a little longer to get through my hair than regular brushes.

Bottom Line

Their cost is about the same and both the Tangle Teezer and The Wet Brush detangle hair effectively and gently. Tangle Teezers are more attractive, but I have a slight preference for The Wet Brush.

The Original Wet Brush is available for $14.00 on (it’s also available on Ulta’s site for $8.99 right now!).
