Tangled & Knotty Hair - Be Gone!

(Tangle Teezer & Toni&Guy Smoothing Detangler) 

I'm one of those people that after they get out the shower they don't have super smooth, super manageable and super not knotty hair. No matter how much I brush my hair before I get in the shower and how much conditioner I use i'll still get out the shower with knots in my hair. Not only is it super annoying if you're in a rush but it can be really painful too! Because I know i'm not the only one that has this problem I thought I'd share with you what I use to tame my tangled locks.

The first thing I use is my Toni&Guy Smoothing Detangler, which is £6.39 from Boots. It claims to 'Helps tame frizz and flyaways for smoother, more manageable hair.' So not only is the product telling you it's gonna stop your hair feel like it's being pulled out of your skull while your brush it but it will also make it look tamed, smooth and frizz free! To use this product it recommends to 'Comb a walnut-sized amount through damp hair then heat style or let hair dry naturally.' This is the part I don't agree with although I completely agree with the earlier claims of making your hair tamed, smooth and frizz free! The consistency of this product is very very loose and liquidy and I think if you attempted to use a walnut-sized amount you would firstly go through this product like crazy and would grease up your hair with too much product. Personally the way I like to use this product is to use about 1 pump of product through the end of my hair and with whatever is left over on my hands I smooth over the top of my hair and this is plenty enough for me. I have shoulder length, thick hair so of course adjust the amount to your hair type. 

After i've applied my detangler I brush it all out with my Tangler Teezer (mines in pink) which is £10.99 from Boots. 'So it's just a hair brush, what's so great about it?!' I hear you saying. Well it claims 'The Tangle Teezer dramatically reduces hair breakage, splitting and damage, resulting in beautifully shiny hair. After brushing, your hair will feel silky to the touch and stunning to look at.' and I would agree with all those claims! This product took me a while to jump on the bandwagon as I would always think £11 on a hair brush I already have like 5 I don't need anymore! But I am SO glad my mum got me this for Christmas. From what i've gathered this product is made unique by it's soft, differently sized teeth that glide through the hair without any pain and is shaped on top to fit your hand perfectly. It also comes in a variety of different colours and patterns which obviously only adds to this product. It's fast become my favourite thing atm and makes me feel like Rapunzel, constantly brushing my hair (if only my hair was as long as hers!)

These two products together have made my hair routine so much easier. I'm not a big hair person in fact i'm very lazy when it comes to my hair, I sort of like to bung some products in, brush my hair, dry my fringe in place and let the rest do it's thing and if it doesn't look great bung it up in a messy bun. I of course use other products on my hair but these two things are something I use EVERY time I wash my hair without fail as they really do make a difference to my hair. Combined together they leave my hair detangled, manageable, smooth, soft and my hairs in better condition because of them. What else could a girl ask for from one reasonably priced hair product and a hair brush?! My holy grail hair products I suppose you could say!

I'm trying to become a little less lazy with my hair and do more things with it so I'd love to hear what are you favourite hair products that you can't live without?!

Thanks for reading!

(Oh also happy new year! Hope you all had a brilliant time.)

    Great post, really informative. I've wanted to try the detangler for a while now and I actually didn't know it was that inexpensive, for some reason I thought it was more! This post has definitely encouraged me to buy it has i have naturally curly hair and would really help when I get out the shower haha.
