My teenage daughter has wash 'n' go hair, it's straight and brushes and combs g-l-i-d-e through it like silk - it's a good job she's my daughter otherwise I might not like her very much!
Our very own Tamsin's nearly five-year-old daughter, on the hand, has THE most soft, downy and beautiful spiral ringlets I've ever seen; they truly are stunning but OH MY GOODNESS they're seriously high maintenance.
I have naturally curly hair (that's bullied into straight submission on an almost daily basis) and I can tell you that ringlets do NOT like being slept on.
You can go to bed with knot-free hair and wake up with a proper case of bird's nest head. This isn't so bad when you're older and can sort it out yourself but when you're the parent of a curly-haired child who is freaking out because you're hurting them, it's horrendous.
Agony for all involved.
All hail, then, the Tangle Teezer!
Parents - ordinary and celeb' alike - are raving about it!
One parent said she went from sending a scruffy looking stroppy urchin to school, to a beautifully coiffeured angel literally overnight.
Sophie Rayworth, the BBC News presenter, also has nothing but praise for the Tangle Teezer...
It's amazing; my three-year-old daughter won't let me use anything else on her hair. Thank you for making my mornings easier!
