Primark Tangle Teezer Dupe?

Hello everyone!

The weather hasn't been great lately so yesterday my boyfriend and I took at trip to the World Museum in Liverpool and obviously I wasn't going to leave Liverpool without having a nosey around the shops first!

When I was in Primark I noticed this brush sitting on the shelf and it reminded me of the famous Tangle Teezer, so I bought it to try out! I have been wanting to try a Tangle Teezer for a while but feel the price is a little excessive for what it is! It is around £10 so instead I paid just £1.50 for this one!


(Taken with iPhone 4s)

If you haven't heard of the Tangle Teezer before, it is basically a specially designed brush for de-tangling your hair even when it is wet and in its most fragile state!
I have never used the original Tangle Teezer before so I can't really compare the two products but I feel that this could be a good dupe, maybe?

This is one of the best products I have used to brush my hair through whilst it is wet! I usually use a wide-toothed comb, but I have to say this feels better for my hair as it doesn't tug or pull as much as a comb does. This brush can be used on dry hair also but as I have curly hair most of the time I don't brush it when it's dry otherwise my hair would turn into a frizzy mess!

The teeth of the brush are different lengths and are spaced out across the brush. They are very flexible which helps to stop hair from snagging. The brush fits perfectly in your hand which helps to give you more control and care when moving the brush across different sections of hair.

Unlike the original Tangle Teezer that comes in many colours, this brush from Primark only comes in two colours - pink or black, but still at £1.50 you can't go wrong!


I would love to know if it is as good as the Tangle Teezer! Have you tried both? Let me know!

  1. Never tried the original, I also don't want to spend that much on a hairbrush really! For £1.50 I'll look out for this when I'm next in Primark, my hair gets really knotty when wet so sounds ideal x

  13. My hair seems to tangle really easy so the Tangle Teezer is a life saver for me. This looks almost identical to mine, the only difference that I can see from the picture is that the teeth look a little bit thicker. I can't see it being much different though and for £1.50 you can't really go wrong :) xx

  15. I've been eyeing up the tangle teasers for a long time and I'm exactly the same as you with the price so this sounds excellent to me! Thanks for the heads up :) I've got naturally curly hair too so I'm glad the primark one doesn't completely destroy your hair. xx

  18. I have always wanted to get the tangle teaser because my hair is very dry after I got it bleached so it's very difficult for me to comb it out. £1.50 is such a bargain compared to the original one.
