The Only Detangling Hairbrush You Need | secondblonde

image1 (9)I can’t be without my trusty tangle teezer, I own two (original stylers) and have them dotted around the house in my bathroom and bedroom. In addition to these I have two travel sized ones (compact styler) that I throw in my handbag and take away with me. I first wrote about my love for this clever detangling brush in 2013 in a post titled “Tangles Be Gone” read here to find out why I love these brushes so much.

So you can imagine how excited I am that they’ve just launched some cute new limited edition brushes such as this candy coloured “Lemon Sherbet” pictured above in the original styler size. For all the pug dog lovers there’s a fun compact styler called “Pug Love” plus one for the starry eyed disco divas called “Star Bright”.

If you still haven’t got one yet, what are you waiting for? Nadine Baggott (TV Presenter/Beauty Journalist) is a big fan take a look at her vlog including her Tangle Teezer Thick & Curly as one of her all time hair hero’s watch here

I commute to work on a motorbike everyday – as good as it is to travel without being packed like a sardine on a smelly tube I always have “helmet hair” not a great look!

My hair is fine and blonde which I wear in a sleek one length precision bob with a an asymmetrical fringe.

The helmet lining creates uneven kinks and dents in my hair (even with my balaclarver) I wouldn’t mind if they looked kinda cool, but this is most definitely not the case. I look like a Bananarama throw back!!

My go to hair iron of choice is GHD and a staple in my kit, but I needed something in a lower price point to keep in my locker at work.

I got these Babyliss pro ceramic 230 irons for only £17.99 They take just 30 seconds to heat up, have two levels of heat the max is 230 degrees. Theres a red light indicator to let you know when they are ready. The cord is a swive cord 2 meters long.

I section my hair in three layers starting  from the bottom taking one sections at a time. The plates heat up quite evenly, they glide through my hair effortlessly without snagging leaving my hair smooth, shiny and kink free!

For the price point these Babyliss irons have lived up to my expectation, personally the cord could be a little longer (longer length is available on the next model up) but that aside I’m very happy with them.

If you are looking for pair of hair irons without investing too much cash then these are for you! I got mine from Argos here £17.99

Smooth Operator…

No, not the smoochy classic from Sade!
(now you’re probably humming it in your head if you’re anything like me)
A small handy natural bristle brush to smooth hair until it shines!

This little pocket size trusty Denman is a small cushion brush with natural bristle and single nylon quill. This ‘porcupine effect’ as they call it is brilliant for grooming and conditioning the hair.

THE Mason Pearson is of course the ‘Dom Perignon’ of these of grooming tools, but this brush is perfect for creating smooth looks on a budget, and it will last you forever.

I use mine for smoothing my hair back into a sleek pony!
