“ Type: Hair Brush / Brand: Tresemme / „
Up until a few weeks ago, I only owned two hair brushes and one of them was a mini one for my handbag, so i was on the look out for a new one to add to my collection. When I was shopping on the Superdrug website this Tresemme hairbrush caught my eye as it was on sale for only 50p, the original price being £4.99 It was immediately added to my shopping basket and arrived with the rest of my order a few days later.
The brush comes packaged in a sleek black cardboard slip. The brush itself is black with a pink barral. The bristles are black and well spaced, these bristles work really well at keeping hair in place whilst styling. The specially shaped handle is soft and nice to touch. "Tresseme - Used by professionals" is written in white at the bottom of the handle. The neck is ribbed making it easy and comfortable to grip, even when hands are wet. The brush is lightweight.
Tresemme claims that brush has been specifically designed to give 24 hour body and volume to the hair which should give a fuller thicker looking style. Due to the "Unique concave barrel" It is very easy to get right to the roots and add that extra lift. The barrel is ceramic and therefore retains heat for longer than a regular brush, this means that the time spent drying the hair is significantly reduced. Furthermore, the tourmaline barrel helps reduce static and frizz as it releases negative ions. I have found this brush to be versatile, not only does it give long lasting volume as promised but it also works well at straightening and smoothing my hair. Since using this brush I have noticed that my hair is less frizzy at the ends and less fly-away. Whether I am styling my hair or just brushing it straight it leaves my hair looking good with a nice finish. It works well at volumising my hair, althought i think claiming this lasts 24 hours is a bit over the top.
Some brush care guides are given on the packaging which suggest using a comb to remove any loose hairs from around the brush and washing the brush with shampoo and water to remove any styling residues. It is also advised to keep the brush out of direct sunlight. Following these instructions means the brush should last me quiet sometime.
I must say I have been very impressed by this hairbrush and think I would have been happy paying full price for it, so as you can imagine I am more then happy that I got it at such a bargain price. I would recommend this brush to anyone as it has already become a firm favorite with me.
