I like to think of my natural hair journey in two eras: before my Tangle Teezer and after. In the before times, I was detangling my hair using my fingers and Denman brush dupes that were mediocre at best. Then Tangle Teezer’s Ultimate Detangler — which is half off today at Ulta — came into my life, and my routine hasn’t been the same since. I went from fighting my fine curls to separating them with ease in the shower, a feat only made possible by the brush. The two sets of flexible teeth glide through wet hair and turn a half hour of separating my curls into 15 minutes. I’ve been using the original design for years, but recently the brand released a plant-based version, which is the same as the OG but made with mostly sustainably sourced materials (instead of plastic). Normally, the brush is $18 (pricey, yes, but still cheaper than a Denman), but it’s currently half off at Ulta — a deal so good, I’ll probably buy two.
