So I got the Tangle Teezer and had really good results with it.... But, I think I'm just going to go back to a paddle brush. It provides me with the same results and it has a handle. My only gripe with the Tangle Teezer has always been that it doesn't have a handle like traditional brushes. This may not be a topic of discussion for many but for me, holding onto it for dear life when I'm detangling with it so it doesn't fly outta my hand, is getting old. And my hand hurts.
I know it sounds trivial but it is what it is for me.

No love lost though. It was only $10 anyhow. While I'm not rich, I'm glad that this wasn't a "costly" experience. So I am going to give my Tangle Teezer (cleaned and sterilized of course) to my co-worker/friend for her daughter's thick, coily hair. I think it's not as bad when using it on someone else's hair and not your own.
Next up: I plan to make flaxseed gel next month. Oh and I still haven't washed my hair yet. Going on 4 weeks now. It must get washed this weekend......
Hope that helped :)
I wish it had a handle too, but I'll keep working with it.
