Bought a cheap alternative to the tangle teaser

Standard

Hi my Readers,

Long time no….read…or something like that. 😀

Recently I bought a chep alternative to the famous “Tangle Teaser”. Since I havent use the original one, I won’t make a comparison but only will write my opinion, so If you are still interested – keep on reading 🙂

I’m constantly trying out new things and hyped products so you can also read about how wooden comb works.

To give you a perspective, the botom half of my hair is carefully bleached and that same half is turquoise as you can see in this post. So it is not that damaged except for the ends.

When I saw this blush, it immediately reminded me of the original, except it had handle. The color played a huge role in my decision to buy it 😀 It was really cheap so even though I had enough hair things, I bought it.

First impression: dry hair

Upon the first strokes I’ve noticed that because it is made out of plastic, it makes a huge noise while I was brushing. After that, I’ve noticed that it was not catching my whole hair since the bristles are so short (it may be the way it works). I also noticed that it is not detangling my hair really well even though I star at the ends and continue upwards. In fact, very small section of my hair was tangled and this brush was not able to detangle it.

Since the first use – I was rarely using it. I’m currently on vacation and I took only this brush only so I can use more often and give my opinion.

I was not that impressed, but then I tried it on wet hair.

First impression: wet hair

I washed my hair and when is wet, I almost never brush it, but this time was an exception because I needed it to dry faster and also wanted to try the brush on wet hair. It turns out that it brushes wet hair really good. It might have something to do with the conditioner that I used, but still, I was interested. Many of the brushes I have really pull my hair when is wet, but not this one. It might be something to do with the short bristles.

Woolworths, Woolworth, hair, hair brush, brush,

Conclusion:

As you noticed, the brush works really good with wet hair. I don’t recommend brushing the hair while it’s wet, but if you have to, try a brush like this.

Have you tried the original “Tangle Teaser” and some cheap alternative? I’m genuinely curious to know if it works different.

Have a nice one 🙂

Aussie hair products

Hi my Readers 🙂

I am making beauty related post – wow 😀

I am working around some products that I had high hopes for but ended up not working for me. Luckily, I investigate sooo much before purchasing so I don’t have much of them. 🙂

This time is not one of those times 😀

Aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor

I remember a time on YouTube when everyone was talking about this Aussie products. I am now thinking that those were sponsored because there is no way everybody to be so contempt about this because it does nothing.

A while ago Aussie finally became available to me. It was expensive but knowing that everybody talked only good, I thought – it’s worth the money.

I have been using this products for almost a year – not constantly, but I am trying to use them up because I don’t want to be wasteful and every time I’m using them, I get reminded how they don’t do anything for my hair.

It does not smell that good, but I thought – ok, so it might be good for the hair so I’m not going to mind the smell too much.

This one I can see maybe something going on. It does not do too much for my hair but at least smells nice, which is a great improvement minding the 1 minute one 😀

Because my hair is now turquoise and if you want to see what I am using and an updated color, just click over the highlighted words, I am trying to use this conditioners up by adding some to my hair while the hair dye is sitting on my hair. So, at the same time, I get conditioning done as well as neutralizing the harsh chemicals that are in a hair dye.

I bought a shampoo too and when I traveled it was so meh that I left it behind, didn’t look back and even forgot that I bought it 😀 But if you want to try it and decide for yourself, you can click here. And for the german version click here.

I don’t want to be harsh, but this products really didn’t do much for my hair.

 

I still enjoy beauty and cosmetics but being what I am, I am going to include more posts about everything else. How we can improve not only the beauty from the outside, but the internal beauty as well.

 

Did you have similar experience with this products or it’s just my hair and my high expectations? Really curious to know.

Have w nice weekend 🙂

Argan oil hair conditioner (swiss o par arganöl haarkur)

Argan oil hair conditioner (swiss o par arganöl haarkur)

Hi my Readers 🙂

We’ve all heard of how argan oil is good for the hair. Based on that, I wanted to try a conditioner. It was on sale so I got it and here it is my thoughts on it.

argan oil swiss o par

It says that it is for dry and shineless hair. Should have read the ingredients too but I was in a hurry.

   Swiss o par – argan oil hair conditioner                      SWISS O PAR arganöl haarkur  

This stayed in my bath next to the window so the packaging is a little bit washed out from the sun 😀

Ingredients list and claims:

 

As you can see, water is on the first place and on the very second place is alcohol. I don’t know about you but alcohol does not scream „hydration“. There are several types of alcohol in this product.

200 ml

Amount

The consistency is veeery watery and when I try to use it, I end up applying way too much, but even with that – it is not doing much for my hair. It may be because it is silicone free but still, I used it almost all of it up and still didn’t see any difference regarding the dryness of my hair, as the stated claims.

Also, from argan oil conditioner, I expect more.

Scent: when I smelled it in store iI said to myself: well, If it does good to my hair, I will try to get over the scent. Turns out, It didn’t work out 😀 Definitely recommend smelling it in store if you want to buy it.

Will I repurchase: NO.

Because I am using it only on my lower half of my hair, I need it to be as repairing as it can since I am experimenting with that part of my hair so much. And even when my hair was healthy, did not noticed any difference.

Have you tried this product? I am really curious to read if it worked for you?

 

Have a nice weekend 🙂

Few of my hair conditioners – hair care

Standard
Few of my hair conditioners – hair care

Hi my Reader 🙂

 

I have a lot of hair care products. In this post I’m presenting you the hair conditioners that I use or used up. So let’s get started.

 

1-reg

  1. Starting with the least favorite. There was some controversy about this company but even if it wasn’t, I wouldn’t t be using it because I used it once and felt really weird and I think that even left my hair in worse condition that before.

 

  1. This conditioner actually had very good reviews from customers so I tried it just to see what that fuss was all about. Is not that bad but I used better conditioners and I just stopped using it after few washes.

 

  1. Orzene – conditioner for damaged hair with beer extract. I use it for long time. I like to combine it with the shampoo from the same line. Those two in combination make my hair easy for styling so I usually use them when I need to style it for some occasion. It leaves the hair clean and a bit frizzy but nothing that can’t be fixed with some leave – in conditioner or few drops of oil. Since is a beer based shampoo, It leaves interesting smell so I recommend smelling it before you purchasing it. Just in case. =)
  2. Subrina – Hair & Care balsam with macadamia oil. I have huge collection of hair care things. From this particular conditioner I bought a second container, and that almost never happens. I had problem with a hair comb that you can read about it here and my hair was very damaged from it so this conditioner helped my hair when it was very damaged. It leaves the hair silky, smooth, „heavy“ looking and it makes it easier to comb.

 

  1. Wash & Go – regenerator from nettle. Once I saw that I was finishing it, I wanted to buy another one but always came across something new and I never got around buying another bottle.

 

  1. Gliss – with 7 oils. It was OK but it was a bit liquidy. When washed felt like nothing was in the hair. Still left the hair relatively easy to comb.

 

  1. Ziaja – excellent conditioner which unfortunately is discontinued. I “I save” it for occasions when I need extreme hair care.

 

  1. Balea repair pflege spĂŒlung (not in the picture, used it up on vacation and threw the packaging). Nice conditioner and one of the few that I liked more than usual. This is my second packaging but since I found one that I like even more, there will be some time before I buy another bottle.

Hope that this will help you. There will be more hair – related posts. If you have questions, feel free to write me.

You can write in the comments what current hair – care products you are using because I’m always looking for something new 🙂

Have a nice day 🙂

Regards, Antidote 😉
