Last week, we moved house. In stressful times, I sometimes behave slightly erratically. More on these hair brushes I love shortly, but first a bit of storytelling.
Mr BB is frequently telling me I need to brush my hair. Sometimes prompted (me: “do I look Ok?”) other times not (him: “have you brushed your hair?!”) this is occasionally asked just after I have brushed my hair!
I don’t take offence, and before Mr BB was saying it, it was my Mum! I simply have a lot of hair, it is long, and quite unruly. Some days I brush it and by the time I get out the door or wherever I am going to, it needs going over again.
I grew up through the 90s, grunge and metal were strong social groups in our school. Messy hair rocked then, and I never really grew out of it. My hair is very good at the “just got out of bed” look, and personally, I like my wavy, slightly tousled hair.
I think my aversion to hair brushing stems from childhood, when my mother would inadvertently subject me to torture by way of combs and brushes daily. It hurt, there were lots of “ouch” moments and complaints getting all those knots out, but it had to be done.
If only there was an easier way… well, there is in my view. Tangle Teezers. The company now worth a reported £200 million was once turned down by Dragon’s Den. I bet they’re breathing fire after missing that trick!
I first discovered these hair brush meets a comb devices a few years ago, and have never looked back. I have the classic big pink and purple combo, and the limited edition Lulu Guinness option already but they are starting to wear out and look a bit tired. Unlike some other hair brushes, they are relatively inexpensive to replace. Prices start at £11- there’s no ouch in that.
The main catalyst for my splurge was trying my Mum’s Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash on my last visit home. I always try to keep a wide toothed comb in the bathroom but I invariably move it and don’t realise till I am mid shower so end up not combing my hair through till it’s towel-dried.
The Aqua Splash is going to take pride of place in my bathroom. One for the fact that’s the room it should live in and two, it glides through my wet hair leaving it tangle free!
Next up, Tangle Teezer The Ultimate Hair Brush. Another brush I tried at my Mum’s. Now, I am not really sure why this or the other designs pass through my hair so much easier than your standard hair brush but they do! Plus it is in a pretty pink colour, but if you prefer you can always go for the stealth black option!
I also invested in a Thick & Curly design to see how that suited my hair as sometimes, at my nape especially, it takes a few goes to get the knots out. I found this Thick & Curly Tangle Teezer even more effective, particularly in those hard to reach places, such as the nape of the neck where I have an accumulation of loads of hair!!
The one brush I’ve not tried yet is the Styling brush, purely because I’ve yet to come to the box with my hairdryer in! But I will be sure to share my thoughts once I have tried it.
Last but not least, I just couldn’t resist this Star Wars edition Tangle Teezer- what discerning Star Wars fan could?! I mean a hairbrush with C3PO, Chewie, Yoda, Stormtroopers and Darth Vader on it?! Amazeballs!
If you’ve tried any of the many hair brushes in this collection, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the Tangle Teezer collection! Leave a comment below.
