When I first saw the hot pink, oval shaped brush at my local Target, I was immediately (and shamefully) drawn to the Union Jack on the box. The Tangle Teezer is the hottest thing in hairbrushes and – rumor has it – Kate uses one.
The Tangle Teezer is a new fangled, fancy hairbrush designed to reduce tangles and tearing. According to the website: “the original professional detangling hairbrush is loved by hairdressers and used in professional hair salons. It’s a super smooth operator that works the minute hair is lathered and rinsed. Glides through wet, vulnerable and colour treated hair with no pulling, tugging or yanking. Hair peace at last!”
I purchased the brush on sale for $8, though it usually retails for $12. I was immediately skeptical that it would be any different. Surprise twist: it is different! The first use, I couldn’t believe how amazing it felt to brush my hair. It was better than a salon scalp massage. It manages knots easily and is perfect for brushing post-blowout. I thought $12 was obscene for a plastic brush, but now I love my little pink friend.
The handheld device is designed to reduce tangles, eliminate hair tearing, and increase shine. It would make sense that Kate would use the brush to comb through her usually-curly, always-glossy locks. When WWKD reached out to the Tangle Teezer PR team, we received the following response:
“We cannot say the Duchess of Cambridge uses Tangle Teezer, but we know her hairstylists have used it and members of the Royal family use it. Many thanks”
Many brands will not directly confirm that Kate uses their products, but provide similar responses. The note about the “members of the Royal family” is particularly interesting. Well – what do you think? Does she, or doesn’t she?
