My hair has a new BFF – Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Review

My hairbrush has always been one of the boring parts of my beauty routine because, lets face it, they are all pretty damn similar. Well – at least that’s what I used to think – I know the Tangle Teezer has been out for a while now but I have only recently ventured to try it and I am now left wondering why I waited so long!

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler

Instead of pulling apart tangles and knots in the hair, the Tangle Teezer is said to “gently flick tangles apart gently and painlessly”. With my hair being on the dry and damaged side I struggle a fair bit with knots, so the first thing I noticed when brushing with the Tangle Teezer is that there is no tugging or pulling of the hair as there is with traditional hairbrushes and with a few strokes even big knots are broken right down. You also no longer have to resist the urge not to brush when your hair is wet because the Tangle Teezer is super gentle.

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler

This is the Compact Styler Tangle Teezer which is a perfect size for your purse and comes with a removable cover to keep it nice and clean. Just a few brushes and it leaves your hair with a gloss like shine, great for touch ups while your out and about.

The Tangle Teezer Compact Styler retails at $34.95 and is available for purchase online or in selected salons.

Schwarzkopf Omega Repair Intensive Mask

When you think of good hair, it does not get much better than that of the gorgeous Claudia Schiffer. So when Ms Schiffer got together with Schwarzkopf to create the Essence Ultime range, I knew I had to give these products a go.


This is about the look I was going for!

I tried out the Essence Ultime Omega Repair Intense Mask, designed for damaged and depleted hair. It aims to repair damaged hairs from the cells and prevent split ends. The key ingredient is a rich Omega Oil, along with Keratin for strength.

Simply massage gently into wet hair and leave in for one minute, use as regularly as required. I’ve been using this mask once a week and am loving how it makes my hair feel! It is almost as good as having a salon treatment and leaves hair feeling silky, strong and smelling amazing.

The Ultime mask has very thick consistency, and while I have to resist the tendency to absolutely smother my hair with it you only need a relatively small amount to achieve great results. I will certainly be repurchasing this mask when I finish this one!

The Schwarzkopf Ultime Range is available at Woolworths, Coles and Priceline stores and the Ultime Omega Repair Intense mask retails at just $14.99 (cheaper than many shampoos!)

While MBFWA doesn’t officially start until Monday, a few off-site shows have already taken place. One of the first being Jamie Ashkar – a Project Runway contestant who has continued to build a name for himself since the show.
