Advantages: Well designed, strong and durable, detangles and smoothens hair
Disadvantages: None at all
I've got long, thick hair which tends to knot really easily and if it's windy it doesn't take long for my hair to become a total mess!
I bought this brush as I thought that it'd be handy to pop into my handbag whenever I was going out. I had also intended to use it for touch-ups on nights out, but it's slightly too big for my clutch. It fits in my handbag and gym bag fine though and takes up very little room. It's around six inches long and it's very lightweight. As this is a paddle brush it has quite a bulky sqaure brush area where the bristles are, but like I said it is still a good size taking out and about for whenever my hair is a total mess and needs re-brushing, which happens way too much!!
I bought this brush around three months ago from Superdrug and paid around £4.00. It's also available from Boots, where it retails for £4.19. Initially this seemed quite expensive for a mini hairbrush, but as I already own a couple of other Tresemme brushes I am well aware of the quality and durability, so I didn't mind paying that bit extra. The brush comes attatched to a thin piece of black plastic which has the Tresemme branding on it as well as the product name. It also says that the brush is suitable for all hair lengths. The plastic is easy to remove with a pair of scissors.
The brush is black all over; black handle, black bristles etc and there's the Tresemme logo on the handle written in white writing. The brush has a little hole on the handle and the brush head is quite large and square shaped. It has quite a large surface area which means that I am able to brush through my hair nice and quickly and the long flexible bristles are strong and durable. There are lots of bristles and each has a little plastic ball on the end, ensuring that if the bristle makes contact with the scalp it won't hurt or cause any damage. The brush is cushioned which prevents static and as the bristles are flexible they detangle the hair well.
Although the brush is small, the handle is big enough to securely hold and grip and the brush is very strong and durable; it is just as effective as my larger paddle brush. This leaves my hair feeling tamed and smooth and it's brilliant at getting out tangles. It's a strong, well made brush and it copes fine with my thick hair, and when I hit a knot, I make sure that I gently work my way through it with the brush to ensure that it doesn't rip it straight out! The brush is waterproof due to the material (plastic infused with ceramic) and it works just as well on wet hair as it does dry hair.
The brush overall is really effecient. It's durable, sturdy and as it is miniature it's very handy for using on the move - and it's pretty cute, too. Recommended!
