As I mentioned briefly in my last post i've been making a really effort with my beauty regime lately and i'm trying to extend the care to my hair as well. I've been bleaching my hair for almost 9 years, and am constantly chopping and changing from blue to pink to purple (with a dodgy to black and back a few years ago!) I am quite embarrassed to admit that I used to just buy whatever shampoo & conditioner was on offer, and always expected my hair to be ok. My mum used to make jokes about my hair falling out but it's only since one of my friends started training as a hair dresser that I started to take hair care a bit more seriously. I've gone into her salon a few times for her to use my hair for training and her senior stylist noticed I had some really bad breakage at the back of my hair, which really scared me! He recommended a few salon quality products which i'm slowly buying each month but one of the things that seemed to be a well priced must have product is the Tangle Teezer.
Priced at between £9 - £15 depending on where you buy it, the Tangle Teezer is a detangling hairbrush which is a firm favourite with professional salons. It's ergonomic design fits perfectly in your hand and it's light weight bristles mean it slides through wet hair without the pulling and tugging i'm used to from my hair! As my hair is so bleached washing it is a total nightmare, I can barely get a brush/comb through it and feel as though I use more product than necessary because i'm trying to condition it. Washing my hair with my usual products and a small amount of conditioning treatment afterwards, the Tangle Teezer brushed through my hair with ease and I noticed A LOT less hair had come out after blowdrying. I thought this was a product aimed at using on wet hair, but after back brushing and hair spraying my hair on Saturday night I used it Sunday morning and was surprised at the effect it had on my styled hair.
I bought the Tangle Teezer from Boots for £10.99 and would 100% recommend it to anyone who has coloured/bleached hair. If you are sick of dragging a brush through your washed hair and feel nervous about the effect that might be having then invest in a Tangle Teezer!
