Is this the Best Detangling Brush for Thick, Coarse Hair?

Healthy Hair


I like to think of myself as a comb connoisseur. Ever since the early days of my hair journey, one of my main focuses was to get my hands on the very best comb or brush I could afford. Preferably one that with the ability to melt through tangles like a hot knife through butter. 

One of my all-time favorite detangling tools of all time was the double-rowed comb crafted by Conair.  Unfortunately for me, that comb (which I loved so dearly) is no longer in production.  More recently, I stumbled on a hot new detangling comb (EZ Dentangler) which has several rows of teeth that flexes and bends with hair.  I love this comb, but I need something that can help me detangle small sections with ease.  Detangling is an art and sometimes, one size doesn't fit all when it comes to detangling tools.   


Many years ago, the Tangle Teezer took the hair industry by storm with its unique detangling tool that fits neatly in the palm of your hand.  Everyone raved about it so, of course, I had to get one.  My first impression of the Tangle Teezer wasn't that great.  I felt like I couldn't really trust that the bristles weren't damaging my (then relaxed) hair.  Also, the shape of the Teezer felt slightly awkward to hold during the delicate act of detangling.  

Tangle Teaser vs. EZ Detangler

I've since learned that Tangle Teezer released a paddle brush version of their original detangler.  The paddle detangling brush has similar bristles/teeth to the original design but with a convenient, easy to use, handle.  Although I didn't love the original Tangle Teezer, I'm willing to give the paddle brush version a try because I'm fascinated by the tiny, flexible, plastic bristles.  I often roller set on wash days to stretch my hair.  The EZ Detangler is great but it can't detangle with the precision required for me to achieve a successful rollerset. I need something that can handle the smaller sections flawlessly.  So the plan is to use my EZ Detangler to remove shed hairs on a macro level.  Then, I'll employ the expertise of the Tangle Teezer to finish the job.  

One thing I learned about my search for the perfect detangling comb is that the perfect comb doesn't exist.  It's more about finding the right comb that does what it's supposed to do without causing unnecessary stress to the hair.  I think the combination of the EZ Detangler + The Tangle Teezer brush might be just the right move.
