Tresemme Mini Paddle Brush
Advantages: Incredibly sturdy and effective at de-tangling for a small brush
There is nothing worse than turning up to meet someone out and about on a windy day and looking like you have been dragged through a hedge backwards. That is why I always ensure I carry a hairbrush with me.
The Tresemme Mini Paddle Brush has been my best handbag brush to date. It is handy sized to be able to pop into a handbag, even a very small clutch bag for a night out. And, unlike a lot of handbag brushes which I find you tend to use to make do whilst out and really you can't wait to give your hair a good proper brush when you get home, this mini paddle brush is just as effective as a brush of a much larger size.
There are a number of reasons for this. Chiefly it is because it is simply a mini version of the full size paddle brush Tresemme make. It has the same flexible epoxy tipped pins and padded area under the bristles which allow you to de-tangle knots gently from the hair at the same time as being gentle, and actually, quite relaxing on the scalp. It is also highly effective at smoothing and calming hair.
It is a paddle brush design, which is unusual for a handbag brush and whilst it is small, only about 15 cm long - about the length of a small ruler - the paddle brush head is almost square so allows you to cover a lot of the surface of the hair in one stroke. This ensures it is effective at very quick touch ups. A few strokes of the hair and your style is sorted.
It is also a lot more sturdy than many handbag brushes. It is made of good solid plastic which hasn't come to any harm thrown into the bottom of my bag and carted about. Even the bristles are still intact and not even bent or broken.
The design is very appealing. It is simply black with a white Tresemme logo on the handle and because it is a mini version of a paddle brush it is very cute.
It is even suitable for all hair types whether long or short, thick or fine. It does not cause static or fly away hair and is sturdy enough to get through the thickest of hair.
The handle is just long enough to hold comfortably in your hand and at £3.99 from Boots it is a handbag brush bargain.
I actually bought this brush for my hospital bag ready for when I went into hospital to have my daughter. I wanted a brush I could keep in there so once it was packed, it was packed and I didn't have to think about it. It was a real surprise how effective it was - even on wet hair after getting out of the shower and it was quite handy for blow drying my hair whilst I was still in hospital and didn't have any other brush to hand. I have carried it around with me on trips out ever since. It turned out to be a really good investment.
It is the kind of brush that when you get it out, your friends will say, 'oh can I borrow your brush'.
Summary: All the effectiveness of a full-sized paddle brush in a handbag-sized version
