I don’t hide the fact I was a complete loser at school. I was the most unpopular kid at 4 of the 5 schools I attended (I kept moving to try and escape bullies. Turns out were are everywhere). I always found school to be just one big popularity contest and it was the “cool kids” who decided your fate each day. As an adolescent moving into the big wide world of full time employment I found there were lots of popularity contests in the workplace as well, and as it turns out, in my former workplaces it would seem your career was decided by the “cool kids” as well except they had fancier job titles.

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
