Hello My Lovelies!
Whow, it’s almost at the end of August now. I know absolutely everyone says this but I really do feel like time is just whizzing by, I can almost hear the sound the days make as they go zooming past me.
Anyway, after I received my WIMH Redermic R try, I was lucky enough to get their Tangle Teezer Compact Styler try as well! I have literally no luck with such things usually, so it was a pleasant surprise to me.
The Tangle Teezer is something that I know quite a lot of beauty bloggers/vloggers have been talking about but even though it looked quite pretty and really handy it’s not something I would buy. Why? Because my hairbrush works just as well and I usually go by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ philosophy.
Which is why I’m extra happy to be sent this as a try as I really wouldn’t have tried it out otherwise!
As with the previous try I received from WIMH, the packaging was really immaculate!
Honestly, when else would you receive an entirely black envelope in the post??
So, this Tangle Teezer isn’t just your ordinary, regular Tangle Teezer, there’s a reason why it’s the ‘Compact’ edition and I didn’t even realise this till it arrived… but it’s specifically meant for travel.
The original Tangle Teezers are basically the same as the one I received, except they don’t come with a little ‘cap’ like so:
This cap ‘hooks’ onto the teezer itself to protect its soft bristles from becoming bent while it’s jostled around in your bag with the 50 other absolutely essential items we girls carry around every day.
Such a simple idea but so useful! Really, the best innovations are the simple ones.
Okay, so onto the claims of the Tangle Teezer and whether I think they work:
Honestly, I was super sceptical. It’s just a brush with soft bristles that are of different lengths, how is it more effective than my own brush?? But holy moly (does anyone else say that these days?) it does work! I don’t know the science behind this but I doubt you need to be an astro-physicist to figure it out, I’m just sub-par in that area, but science aside it doesn’t tug or yank at my hair, just a bit of brushing and the tangles do smooth out.
I have long hair that loves itself so much it’s constantly snuggling up into itself to form knots that a sailor would be proud of, usually I just force my brush through and it helps that I have a very high pain-threshold, this teezer baby makes it so there’s hardly any resistance! In my experience I think it works slightly better than hair is wet (which is amazing, because usually it hurts more to brush my hair when it’s just been washed) but is a dream to use when my hair’s dry as well.
As for the compact/travel thing, well the cap obviously works, I can’t even bear to think what the state of the bristles would be after just a day of bumping around in my bag. It’s not that much smaller than the original tangle teezer but it is far smaller than my big hairbrush that I use at home. I also have a mini hair-brush and a comb for travel but the tangle teezer is far more effective than either of those.
To date I’ve carried this baby around for casual outings out, taken it with me for a couple sleepovers and also brought it along for a day-long filming session and it’s been handy every single time.
Also, isn’t it so pretty? I had a look at their official website and I think the Compact editions have the prettiest colours. I’m not usually a pink fan at all but the extremely vibrant hot pink + black combination has won me over. The casing is so sleek as well as it’s slightly waved as you can see here:
The wave on the top is meant to be more ergonomic, which is basically fancy talk for ‘comfy to hold/use’. To be honest, I’m not quite sold on that yet as I’m too used to hair-brush handles but I do think the wave makes it look extra pretty, wins one over my hairbrush!
The only problem now is that it’s so pretty, I’m a little afraid of losing it while carrying it out and about. Sigh, first world problems much?
Tangle Teezing Love,
Do you have a Tangle Teezer too/Would you get one?
