Backcombing Giving You a Headache? I Present the Denman Teasing Comb :)

teasing comb

 

What is it?

A comb specifically for ‘teasing’ the hair (generally at the roots) to add volume.

 

The Review

What is not to like? If you have ever tried to tease your hair with anything but a teasing comb, you will know that it hurts, it’s messy and generally really not a very good idea …

This comb, however, allows you to tease gently whilst achieving lots of volume (depending on how much you tease your hair of course). You can achieve varying levels of volume with ease and it’s gentler on your head and hair than trying to use a normal comb.

The handle is a nice width and the pointed end allow your to section your hair in a straight line simply by wiggling the pointed end in the direction you want to part it. Easy peasy! No pain, no tugging and these combs are under £5.

I don’t tease my hair very often but this is a joy to use if I’m having a flat day or want a a bigger up do.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray

 

What is it?

A heat protection spray infused with keratin that claims to protect from heat styling, make hair sleeker, shinier and more manageable without weighing down the hair.

 

The Review

To be completely honest, I’m not going to string this out as there’s not much to say really! This does exactly what it says it does on the bottle.

The spray bottle is lovely and this stuff comes out in a beautiful fine mist. It smells lovely, doesn’t weigh my hair down, doesn’t leave it sticky in any way and makes my hair feel super soft.

A beautiful smooth and shiny finish even if only used when blow drying – perfect!

 

Worth the Money?

This can be purchased from Boots or Superdrug or even larger chain supermarkets (as usual) for the very reasonable price of £5.99. I love this and will be repurchasing it full price, HOWEVER, Superdrug has it for only £2.95 at the moment so I suggest you all go and grab some while it lasts! Even at full price though, this product is fantastic.

This product is part of a range so if you fancy giving the treatment mask or shampoo or conditioner a go then leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts! I have been using the shampoo as well and I really like it 🙂

Tangle Teezer

What is it?

A hairbrush that’s known for being good to your hair, its gently detangles with minimal breakage to the hair.

The Tangle Teezer is available in a wide variety of colours- I have the sparkly purple one.

The Review

There really isn’t a huge amount to say about this product – it is simply a brush. Everyone knows (or should!) how to brush their hair, the point of this product however is to make brushing your hair less damaging, even when wet.

As far as I can tell, this makes combing my hair out after I’ve washed it an absolute joy. Simply pull the brush gently through your hair, starting with the ends and working your way up to the top.

I used to use a wide toothed comb which was also effective but took longer, this product however, is much easier, quicker and nicer to hold as its nice a chunky but incredibly light.

It’s a lifesaver for me as often my hair is furiously backcombed etc for work and this just makes getting all the tangles out far less traumatic on both me and my hair 🙂

Worth the Money?

This product costs around the £10 mark which I realise may seem a lot to some people for what is effectively just a hairbrush. Having said this, it really does do what it advertises and I would seriously recommend it for those of you with curly hair which I know can be very hard to manage.

Added to this is that it is really a one time purchase if you look after it. I’ve had mine for over 6 months and have seen no difference in its effectiveness.

This product is available from several shops including Boots but there are many online stores where you may be able to get an even better deal – Amazon is always a good one.

They do not appear to have an official website so here’s the link from Selfridges:

Revlon Liquid Quick Dry

 

 

What is it?

A liquid, brush on oil that dries wet nails in less than a couple of minutes.

 

The Review

This product is a life saver for me, I like to paint my nails but I’m also very impatient when it comes to letting them dry for long enough. It’s easy to use and absolutely amazing!

Just paint your nails as usual and apply your top coat, allow this dry for about 30secs just so it’s not super wet and lightly brush on the Liquid Quick Dry.

This is a a runny liquid as it’s a fairly thin oil so you do not need to really push the brush as you brush on the product. I find that roughly three, quick, light strokes coats the nail and after about 90secs it’s completely dry and has no effect on the polish’s ‘natural’ finish.

 

Worth the Money?

A nail technician at a photoshoot the other week used it on me so of course, if it’s good enough for a pro then this stuff definitely is worth the money!

It works really well and is hardly an investment buy at £6.49 – compared to some of the other ones out there from brands such as OPI it’s an absolute bargain.

This product is widely available on the highstreet from places such as Boots and Superdrug and most larger chain supermarket with a make up section:
