Dupe of the Day - Primarks Tangle Teezer

 Hey Guys,
as previously suggested, my blog writing pace has slowed right down due to work commitments and the onslaught of the summer holidays (BOOHOO). But I am trying hard to keep blog posts coming as much as possible. So here I am writing my latest saga...

Whilst browsing the isles of Primark last week I spotted a dupe for the very well known Tangle Teezer

For those of you that don't know, the tangle teezer is a hair brush first seen on Dragons Den. To put it simplistically it has no handle, that is perhaps it's most distinguishing factor, that and the fact it is entirely plastic with flexible bristles. It looks a little something like this..

The tangle teezer is available in all shapes and sizes and is now stocked in boots for around £10. Since I bought mine around a year ago I have fallen in love with it and it has no signs of dying on me anytime soon. The idea of it is that it brushes knotty hair out without tugging at your hair and as the name suggests 'teezes' it out. It can be used on wet or dry hair.

£10 may be considered a lot to spend on a hairbrush by most people and when I saw this little mite in the shelves of primark for £1.50 I had to pick it up.

This is more similar to the smaller tangle teezer, rather than my large one but the idea is the same.

Once I got the brush out of the packaging I noticed the bristles are thicker and slightly more dense, they don't have the same flexible feel as the tangle teezer ones. Evidently this meant that when I used it on my knotty hair it didn't have the same effect. Because it is so dense and rigid it does tug at the hair a little bit and doesn't have the same magical effect as the tangle teezer.
Needless to say I was very disappointed because I thought I'd found an absoloute RINGER. But Oh Well, I think I may just leave this brush in my handbags for hairbrushhing and neatening up on the go.
