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.

The Body Shop Big and Curvy Mascara

What is it?


A mascara that promises to lift and curl your lashes while increasing volume.

The Review

I love The Body Shop and have never tried something from the brand that I haven’t loved but this mascara just does not do it for me.

The brush is fairly small, the formula is very ‘wet’, application is messy due to this and although it does hold a curl brilliantly, I just cannot be bothered with the hassle of scraping off the huge amount of product that is dispensed on the tiny brush every time I decide to give it another try.

I did go on The Body Shop website to see the reviews and was surprised to see some absolute rave reviews of this mascara, however, the review section was also littered with negative ones saying similar things to me.

If you’re prepared to wipe off excessive amounts of product from the mascara wand every time you want to use it and can deal with carefully combing out the clumps it leaves on your lashes then be my guest because the curl does last all day.

To me, however, you’d be far better off not wasting your time or the £10 this mascara costs and just using an eyelash curler before applying a different mascara.

Worth the Money?

Unfortunately not in this case. I love The Body Shop products in general and normally am a huge fan but in this case, it’s a waste of time and money. I want a product that does what it says on packaging and doesn’t involve a ridiculous amount of effort getting it to look nice. At £10 you’d be better off going into Superdrug and buying far better cheaper one.

If you are still interested in trying this product out then here the link to website where you can purchase it:

I do however, thoroughly recommend you scroll through at least a couple of pages of reviews before you buy it to give you a wider view of what you’re getting yourself into!

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:
