GIVEAWAY Tangle Teezer **CLOSED**

As you have noticed my hair has gotten really long this year. Along with the length has come new problems. Mostly tangles. I have whined at length on here about how snarly it is. I used to get away without brushing it. In fact I went a year at a time without using a brush. I would finger comb or get out my 1980's orange pick. I can't get away with that anymore. I was forming a dread in one spot. It just kept coming back. Dave subscribes to a site called Cool Tools and every once in awhile he comes across something I might like.

The Tangle Teezer

What is it? (in their own words)

Innovative in its design, Tangle Teezer is a brush like no other. It has no handle,
but far from making it tricky to use, it’s designed to fit snugly into the palm of your
hand. And look closely at the teeth. They’re uniquely structured and therefore
will flex just the right amount when making contact with feisty tangles. Whatever
your hair texture – wavy, straight, fine, curly or Afro, Tangle Teezer will painlessly
brush off knots in both wet and dry hair, knocking precious minutes off your
styling time. And beyond blow-drying, brushing your finished style from roots to
ends will help smooth the all important cuticle for head turning gloss.

Dave ordered me one on Amazon and  long story short, I LOVED IT and we found a second use for it. It did just what it said and it didn't hurt or tug. I contacted the company with my story and asked if they would like to give one away to you guys. They said yes!

The long version:

....My cats were so fussy when I was brushing my hair they wouldn't leave me alone and plunked down on my lap. I thought what the heck and brushed Waffle. Waffle has short hair and cat brushes do nothing and never get the hairball inducing fluffy coat. The brush worked amazing. Not only did it work SHE LIKED IT. My cats hate being brushed. Run away hate. She loved it and I eventually had to stop cause my hand was tired. So I called my fluffy cat Daisyboo next and tried it on her. Same reaction. She loved it and I filled three brushes with the fluffy hairball stuff. Again I had to quit cause I was tired. This is the cat that cries and bites when you brush her. It has now become their brush and I have to get my own it seems. :)

I like you on Facebook, that's how I knew about the giveaway because my Google Reader has been far too neglected the past week. :)
