The dirty Tangle Teezer
As I told you in my post about my long hair care, the Tangle Teezer has been a part of my hair tools for a while. And it still is irreplaceable when it comes to detangling my mane quickly. But after using it just a few times, it quickly starts looking like this:
Imagine dramatic music here. Ew. I have all that stuff in my hair? Obviously, brushing your hair with THAT is anything else but tempting. But unless you only found a few stray hairs in it, cleaning the Tangle Teezer* is not necessarily straightforward. If you have thick hair like me, you do find those tiny little dust-packages in there as well. And those just don’t want to let go of their newfound home!
Cleaning the Tangle Teezer
Honestly, it tok me a while to come up with a good way of cleaning it. At some point I even considered just not using it anymore, because it felt like the Tangle Teezer would just make my hair dirty! But then I finally found the perfect way for me to
a) not spend too much time on cleaning it and
b) still achieve a very satisfying result
The process is so easy it’s almost laughable! All I use for cleaning the Tangle Teezer are a little laundry detergent, some water, a few minutes of patience and a dish brush.
First I mix the detergent with some water and simply let the Tangle Teezer swim in that for a few minutes. Of course it is a good idea to remove the easily removable hair before! While the mixture does it’s work, I am free to do anything else. (Just not brush my hair with the Tangle Teezer, of course.) And it really just takes a few minutes, before you can simply brush off the rest of the gunk with your dish brush. Or an old toothbrush, really just any other brush that you can find. And that is it! Now you have:
A clean Tangle Teezer
Of course I had to include a little before and after of the Tangle Teezer. Almost looks like you just bought it, doesn’t it? It is a good idea to let it dry for a little while, before using it again. Maybe it is just my specific model, but it does sometimes happen that water gets inside. In which case I just shake it a few times over the bathtub and the problem is solved.
So, let me know if this has helped you. Or if you have found an even easier way to clean your Tangle Teezer. (Is that even possible?) Either way, enjoy your clean Tangle Teezer!
