Phil Smith Be Gorgeous De-tangling Brush

I think the most hyped about de-tangling brush in the beauty community has got to be the Tangle Teezer and it holds that title rightly so as every few months they release limited edition designs printed onto their brushes. I own a Tangle Teezer and I did reach a point where I could not be without it. Many companies have tried (some better than others) to create a dupe version but none in my opinion have succeed until now. The success comes from the incredible haircare brand Phil Smith who I have featured before on my blog in my Phil Smith Be Gorgeous blog post.

Phil Smith as a brand have brought out this de-tangling brush which can be used on both wet and dry hair. The brush itself has a typical brush shape in that you have your handle with the head that contains a soft cushion that holds the bristles. The bristles really are what make this brush unique. They are plastic and waved in shaped , the wave according to the Phil Smith brand are designed so that the brush glides through the hair gently and easily whilst removing any tangled hair at the same time.

I personally found this brush a dream to use. I typically have fine hair that does tend to fall straight anyway but when it’s damp, at the roots especially, it can become quite knotted together and this brush allows me to brush through that painlessly.

The only annoying thing about this brush is that because of the bristles being in a waved shape, they are the  hardest thing ever to clean and remove any fallout that the hair has from them. But I personally love everything about this brush, the design of it, the bright rainbow colours and the way it glides through my hair painlessly regardless of whether its wet or dry.

This brush retails for on 5 pounds and is available from Sainburys in the UK and Northern of Ireland. It is also available via the Phil Smith website which I have linked below also.

Phil Smith Be Gorgeous

For those of you who have never heard of Phil Smith, he is a very famous hairdresser who has worked on many celebrity heads including UK Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan. His past work was mostly with the brand Toni & Guy which is a haircare brand I absolutely love because their products are so good. So when I was sent products from Phil Smith’s hair line called Be Gorgeous I was super excited as I knew the products were going to be just as good if not better.

They didn’t disappoint! Beginning with the Be Gorgeous Curly Locks Shampoo, which is a shampoo aimed towards frizz prone hair. I know the title has the word curly in it so you would automatically think it’s just for girls with curly hair but no it’s just for frizz prone hair. This shampoo has a really nice texture to it that lathers sufficiently well. I found my hair to be quite lightweight afterwards and there was no sense of  heavy product within my hair. Also my hair remained frizz free throughout every rain cloud that passed and that’s saying something because I live in Ireland where it rains every time someone sneezes. I should mention I have long hair that’s poker straight and only gets frizz in the rain or humidity.

To go with the shampoo, I’ve been using the Hello Moisture Conditioning Treatment which is an amazing moisturising conditioner. This conditioner I found had quite a thick texture and you really don’t need to use a lot of it because of that. It has an amazing citrus smell to it, that does linger in the hair. As a conditioner it’s mostly aimed towards dry, frizzy hair so it works great with the Curly Locks Shampoo. A match made in haircare heaven as we say.

My favourite product out of the four I was sent has definitely got to be the Super Smooth Keratin Spray. The instructions on this do state to use it on slightly damp hair and then style but personally I use this almost every single day, first thing in the morning. It’s great for smoothing away any fly-aways that can happen when doing a hair style and because it has keratin in it I know that I’m still using something that’s going to add a lot of benefit to my hair.

The last product that I have is the Glam Shine Serum which is a finishing product that is used to add texture and shine to the hair. It has a very thick and very glossy texture to it, that can also feel sticky to the touch but that goes away once it’s been worked into the hair. This is great for the ends of the hair in my opinion. I wouldn’t recommend using this on hair that hasn’t been washed longer than 2 days as it will cause it to look greasy rather than shiny. Caution should also be taken with the amount used on freshly clean hair as using to much can also cause that very greasy look to happen.

These products are priced between 3.50 pounds and 4 pounds making them extremely affordable. All Phil Smith Be Gorgeous products are available to purchase from Sainsbury’s Stores.
