After reading my previous reviews on the tangle teezer, reader Fridah asked the question, ' I am wondering if you see splits in your hair after using the tangle teezer?'
A: On my part, the brush literally just shredded my hair. It was immediate breakage which I was initially unsure of because I do not use a comb but during my second use of this brush I was sure. Furthermore the tiny little broken coils which I have not seen for atleast 3 years were present.
So, no it did not split my hair, it broke it off. I can assume that people with less breakage susceptible hair but whose hair is affected by the TT may notice splits after a few uses (maybe a month to six months).
My hair is very fine, very curly and very kinky. It really does not deal well with any kind of combing or rough treatment (like rough finger combing!). I cannot say that my experience is reflective of the average. I do think that ultimately if your hair generally does not deal well with brushes, do not bother with the TT. However if you have previously not had issues with brushes, it may be worth it for you to try.
