I am an Australian Beauty Addict currently in the USA. There are some things that are going to be of high importance to me. One of those things is obviously going to be Beauty Stores. More specifically, Beauty Stores I have never been to and heard so much about. One of those stores is ULTA.

The Lead-Up

I have known for a long time that ULTA is not one of those stores designed for tourists. They are usually located in relatively suburban areas and for that reason I have never been able to find one on my previous trips to the USA.

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.

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
