Comb out frizzy and curly hair

If we ask you what you experienced as the most painful hair care in your childhood, then 'combing the hair' could be your answer. Frizzy and curly hair quickly gets tangled. Combing out often takes a lot of time and patience. With the right brushes, products and techniques, combing frizzy hair is very easy and - very important - no longer painful at all.

There is no one size fits all in the care of frizzy and curly hair. Every curl is different and requires different care. In addition, you have your own wishes when it comes to styling. Pain during combing can be prevented by:

  • First, moisturize the hair with a water-based leave-in conditioner. Do not comb the hair when it is dry.
  • Comb out the hair in sections. Start at the hair ends and work towards the hair roots.

In recent years, various hair brushes have come onto the market that make combing easier and at the same time provide a beautiful curl definition.

Tangle Teezer
The Tangle Teezer is an idea of ​​the English hair stylist Shaun P. He pitched the Tangle Teezer to the popular TV show Dragons' Den (a program where entrepreneurs can present their idea to attract investors), but was rejected. Viewers of the program were enthusiastic and visited Shaun P's website en masse after the broadcast. About 35,000 Tangle Teezers were sold in the first year.

TheTangle Teezer is a brush that detangles hair easily. Combing out has always been a challenge for frizzy and curly hair. It hurts, lasts a long time and can lead to hair breakage. But with the 'Naturally Curly' Tangle Teezer - specially designed for frizzy and curly hair - you will not be bothered by this. The brush has long and short teeth. The long teeth detangle, while the short teeth smooth the hair cuticle without stripping the curl. And not unimportantly: it is painless! Also perfect for use with children.

Denman Brush
Where the Tangle Teezer is mainly intended to comb out the hair, the Denman brush is used by many to create a beautiful curl definition. You can better describe it as a styling brush . The problem where combing results in fluffy hair is immediately solved with this brush.
