Long Hair, Grazia And A Review Of The Tangle Teezer

If you follow me on twitter you'll know that last week I was super excited to be featured on Grazia magazine online Beauty Blog Round Up, and even more excited to find out I'd been featured yesterday too . A little while ago I was given the opportunity to be one of Grazia's featured Beauty and Fashion bloggers. Nothing is going to change for you guys all it means it that Grazia may feature or highlight some of my blog posts that they feel are relevant to their site and I may feature content on my blog from them that I feel may be relevant to me or you guys, a bit like this post x

Last week Grazia online published an article all about caring for long hair despite having a bit chopped off the last time I got my hair cut it's still falls into the long category

Apart from a two year period when I went for a short bob and then a crop! I've always had long hair in fact when I was in primary school I could sit on my hair!

Long hair though needs special care and the Grazia article gives some great product and styling tips for those of us with flowing locks. A couple of the products have already been added to my must try list including the Morrocan Oil Large Barrel Brush, and the Ojon Instant Restorative Hair Serum, but two of the products the ladies mention are already regulars in my haircare routine, Batiste Dry Shampoo and more recently the Tangle Teezer.

For a few months now if not longer I heard so many people singing the praises of this little bit of plastic that I had to give it a try. So on my Thomas Cook holiday flight I bought the Pink Sizzle Compact Tangle Teezer.

Now lets be honest at first glance this doesn't look that impressive, in fact my mum very kindly described it as a cat brush lol, and to be fair it takes a bit of getting used to. The lack of a handle is a little disconcerting at first but styler is ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand.

 My hair in it's natural state is quite wavy, added to that a mixture of sunshine, humidity and salt water, then in the last week or so I tended to look a bit like a member of the Jackson Five ie I had very big hair! The bristle of the Tangle Teezer don't feel that strong so I was a bit wary at first, but I needn't have been this brush coped really well with my knots and tangles leaving my hair my hair really smooth. I did lose a few hairs in the process but the clever protective cover also features a tool to remove excess hair from the brush.

I have to say I agree with a lot of my twitter followers and the girls at Grazia, the Tangle Teezer is a great tool for those with long hair, or hair that tangles easily, and I can imagine it would be great on childrens hair. I gave this brush a pretty stern test whilst I was away and it passed with flying colours. Any questions please let me know and don't forget to check out Grazia Daily and Tangle Teezer.

  4. My mums friend bought me a tangle teezer for my birthday, I have got hair like a cavewoman! Although it does look a little like a dog brush, it is the best thing I have ever used on my hair. Pure genius.x
