Tangle Teezer Review!

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

I have been wanting this for ageess and I was so so so so happy when I opened it up. So if you have never heard of a tangle teezer before, it is a specially designed brush that does not pull out your hair and leaves it smooth and shiny. There are lots of different types of Tangle Teezers but I got the original one in Bubblegum Pink. You can also get it in Orange, Purple Sparkly, Black and Light Blue.

This brush is perfect for me as when I was younger I lost quite a lot of my hair due to medication that I was on at the time. And now, even though I don't take the medication any more, I still have to be careful that I don't yank my hair out with a brush as my hair is still quite frail. Also, which does not help my hair at all, is that I straighten it every day. I know! I'm sorry! But I have to, as if I hairdry it or leave it to dry itself, it goes frizzy and expands by about 30cm each side of my head. Okay, maybe that was a slight exaggeration, but I just don't like my hair frizzy. On a review I  have read prior to receiving it, it said that if you brush your hair with the tangle teezer in the last few minutes of it drying out, it will become more straight. Now, I don't know if its true or not but I am well up for having a try!

So when I opened it up, I just had to have a go! I ran it through my hair (bearing in mind this was 7:30 in the morning, without having brushed it yet), it glided through leaving it shiny and tangle free!

This brush can be used on wet hair and dry hair. When I use it on my dry hair I just use it as a normal brush and when I use it when my hair is wet I use it before I put the shampoo in so that it is smooth and I can run my hands through it, and when I put conditioner in so that it is put on evenly. After I have used it in the shower, I just rinse it off and put it on the radiator for 5 minutes to dry, and then woala! I can use it on my dry hair.

The scientific side of how the brush works is that because of the two lengthed bristles in the brush, they move with your hair rather than pull on your hair. They are flexible little things but they aren't rock hard so they do the job brilliantly.

This brush was actually funded by Dragons Den haha!

I know that your not supposed to look at the prices of presents, but as I am writing a blog post about this, I am going to tell you that it is £10.20 from the official tangle teezer site. I guess that to whatever shop you buy it from it will be more or less but that is the average price.

I would deffinately recommend this to anyone who has been looking into buying one of these.

Do any of you have a tangle teezer? Or maybe you want to get one?

Daisy Does Interview!

Hey guys! 

Its 3 days til christmas- excited much!?

I AM!!!

So I am trying something new with my blog, every couple of months or so I will be interviewing a fellow blogger or shop owner.

I interviewed Daisy from Daisy Does!

Here we go!

1. What are your favourite trends at the moment?

My favourite trends at the moment are fairisle prints, over-sized jumpers, biker boots and studs. I'm also not so proud to admit that I'm absolutely loving Christmas jumpers at the moment. I'd love a red fair isle reindeer jumper to wear on Christmas day! In terms of jewellery, I'm loving full charm bracelets and really embracing the bronze and antique gold trend. I'm also loving stackable bracelets and love having a wrist full of interesting and different bracelets.

2. What inspired you to start daisy does?

I started Daisy Does when I graduated from drama school a year and a half ago. I was living in London and fancied a change of direction so moved back home to Gloucestershire and picked up the hobbey I'd had since I was five which was making jewellery. Soon enough my friends were asking for pieces and I decided to go for it and open an online shop!

3. What's your favourite item in your shop?

My favourite item in my shop is from my new limited edition 'Deluxe' range, Bordeaux: here. There's just so much to look at and my penchant is every day items in miniature and this really embodies that. I love the colours and, as with all my jewellery, there isn't another piece in the world identical to it. I love the idea that you can wear something that no one else has.

4. If you could be any celebrity for a day, who would it be?

If I could be any celebrity, I would be Kate Middleton. Not in her current condition, no one would want to go through what she has been recently, but she had the wedding of the century and has access to any designer in the world. She wears beautiful dresses, has gorgeous hair and is married to a prince! What more could a girl want.

5. When did you start your shop? + what advice would you give for people wanting to start online shops?

I started my shop in August 2011. The best advice I can give is be prepared to work incredibly hard most waking hours of the day and seven days a week too! However, that's shouldn't be a problem if you love what you do like I do. It's brilliant to have such a creative job when people like what you do and it's a great feeling knowing that people all over the world wear my jewellery. My advice is be prepared to work incredibly hard and make sure you are doing it for the love of the items you sell. Otherwise you can easily drift and eventually fail.

Thankyou Daisy for letting me interview you!

You can visit daisy does here, and follow them on twitter here. Daisy Does creates amazing quality handmade bracelets which are just sooo cute!

Merry Christmas guys!
