I'm quite lucky as my hair is very strong (almost too strong) and straight so it doesn't need too much maintenance. It was a great relief when I cut my hair short a couple of years ago because I was able to wash it and go straight out and it would look normal. I recently got bored with having short hair (I get easily bored and like to change it up every so often) so I decided to start growing my hair. I think the main factor was there are so many great styles at the moment and I can't try any of them out on myself!
As my hair is getting longer, I have started to experience some common hair issues. In addition to my hair being short and thick it is also blonde, bleached I will admit, which means it gets dry very easily. I have naturally oily hair so the bleach helps to dry this up, however recently the ends have become dry and frazzled. The ends have been splitting and my hair feels a bit like candyfloss and it got so bad that I have had to start taking extra care of it.
So the reason I am telling you all this, is because as a result of my frazzled hair I have been buying all sorts of lotions and potions to try and repair my hair and bring it back to life again! One thing I bought the other day was a Tangle Teezer! What is this you may ask? Well it is a hairbrush like no other....
It is a small brush that is molded to fit in the palm of your hand and is available in many different styles but so far I have seen the normal and compact size. They cost between £10.99 and £13.49 in Boots, depending which version you want. You can also order them direct from the Tangle Teezer website and get some top tips on how to use the brush for the best results on all hair types. I had heard of these brushes before and thought they must be some faddy thing for people with long hair, but when I saw they did a purple glittery one I knew I had to have a closer look, within minutes I was walking away with my little gift (after paying for it of course).
It is the unique bristles that makes this brush different to others on the market, the 'teeth' help detangle your locks without pulling, tugging, ripping or splitting. These brushes can be used on dry or wet hair for quick, pain-free detangling results. In addition to this, it smooths the hair once dry and adds a polishing effect to your overall look.
Now you may scoff thinking this is a big list of things for one small brush to, do but it works!! I have been using this brush since Saturday and as I am writing this post, it is Thursday and already my hair feels softer, smoother and less frizzy all over. It feels as though I have a whole new head of hair and I believe it is all down to this little gadget from hairstyling heaven.
