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 locks quickly. But after using it just a few times, it quickly starts looking like this:
Obviously, brushing your hair with THAT is anything else but tempting. But cleaning it is not that easy either. Unless you only found a few stray hairs in it, that is. If you have thick hair like me, you 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 took me a while to come up with a good way of cleaning it. At some point, I even considered just not using it anymore. 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
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 its’ work, I am free to do anything else. (Just not brush my hair with the Tangle Teezer, of course.) And you really just have to wait a few minutes. Then you can take it out and simply brush off the rest of the gunk with your dish brush. Or an old toothbrush. Really just any other brush you can find. And that is it! Now you have:
A clean Tangle Teezer
To be honest, at some point I contemplated buying a new one, instead of going through the hassle of cleaning it. They also have those really cool brushes* now… But I disgress.
It is a good idea to let your Tangle Teezer dry for a little while, before using it again. Maybe it is just my specific model, but sometimes water gets inside while cleaning it. In which case I simply shake it a few times over the bathtub. Problem 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!
