Detangling Tool Showdown + Tool Giveaway [CLOSED]

I recently hosted a detangling tool giveaway on Youtube and whilst I hadn't completely taken a break from all things Social media I most certainly put blogging on hold for a few weeks [explanation here]. 

Well as the blog of course remains my first love, there was no way I was not going to host the same giveaway on here too, so if you missed the Youtube giveaway then there's always the chance you'll scoop something here!

I've used a ton of detangling tools over the past few years and decided it was high time I benchmarked them all against each other. Some have wrecked a whole lot of havoc on my hair whilst others live in a glittery royalty box a.k.a my staples box. Hopefully this will help you decide which tool may just work for you.

 So here it goes, the detangling tool showdown… [giveaway entry below]
Cost | £6.99

Pros | Flexible bristles, great quality, very durable & good handle grip 
Cons | I find the spacing between the bristles is simply not wide enough which can mean more tension and manipulation on your hair when detangling. You can indeed space out the bristles however I would rather invest in a tool that is ready made and does not require altering. I prefer using this in the shower.
Rating | 3/5
Cost | £9.95

Pros | Flexible bristles as well as flexible bristle comb sections, great quality, durable & great handle grip
Cons | UK accessibility. I purchased this from but it has been out of stock for a while now.
Rating | 5/5
Cost | £10.20

Pros | Flexible bristle base, large surface area, excellent quality, great handle grip.
Cons | UK accessibility, may be sold in some larger stores.
Rating | 4/5

Cost | £10.99

Pros | Super flexible bristles, unique ergonomic grip
Cons | Bristles wear easily and can form bubbles which can catch onto your hair. I also think this may have been one of the main causes of a plague of single strand knots which caused me to have to trim not too long after my transitioner chop.
Rating | 1/5

Overcoming Your Past & Moving Past Regret

Hello Loves,

So where do I start? How about with my absence right! 

For the first time ever I only feel a little bit guilty for not posting on the blog. Now before you raise your brows and give up on me, let me explain! There are some super exciting changes that will be happening in my life in the next coming months starting from August, and the only way I have been able to prepare for them has been planning planning planning. I'm living in Excel sheets, my iPhone notes app and sending emails back and forth like a headless chicken #nopunintended #ithasreallybeenthatcrazy

But, the good news is I am back to posting and so excited to be here again. I posted this video on my youtube channel yesterday and whilst this is a blog focused mainly on haircare, I can't help but be myself and share snippets of my life, thoughts and dreams with you all. So thank you for being patient with me and enjoy...

'Overcoming Your Past & Moving Past Regret'
Till Thursday!

Avec amour...
