Macadamia Oil No Tangle Styler Brush

Hello Lovelies,

Today I want to tell you all about a product that to be honest with you, when I first saw it I thought it wasn't going to be much to write home about.

I'm going to let you know my thoughts on the Macadamia Oil No Tangle Styler Brush* which I received in a goody bag from the mid summer event held by Look Fantastic in August this year. My brush actually came in a set with a sample of Macadamia oil and a sachet of the hair mask but I stupidly didn't take any photographs of the set, total blogger fail I know.

When I first saw this brush I thought it was just a tangle teaser type product and although I do use my pink tangle teaser I don't love it and thought I'd feel the same about this brush. How wrong could I be? I love this brush, my hair is only fine but I have lots of it and when it has just been washed, for some reason it is really knotty or wuggie (is that even a word? it is now) and it is really hard to brush through. 

What the Macadamia Natural Oil website says about the brush: 

* Smoothes the cuticle layer

* Minimises breakage, splitting and damage

* Painless and stress-free detangled

* Recommended for fragile or chemically treated and coloured hair

* Excellent for scalp massage and improved circulation

* Safe for use with hair extensions

My thoughts on the brush: 

I am very impressed with the brush, my hair is so much easier to brush when it is wet, I don't have to tug at my hair at all, I don't experience any hair soreness at all when I brush my hair when it's wet and usually I hate brushing my hair when it is wet and it hurts so much because it's so "wuggy" and I love the fact it has a handle on it, it's so easy to use and just like any other hair brush but one that is so much better at detangling. I totally agree with the painless and stress free detangling, it doesn't hurt at all when I brush my hair. 

I can't say I have noticed if my hair is in any better condition than it was, I have my hair trimmed usually every 5/6 weeks so I don't usually suffer with split ends, but I can imagine that if you do have hair that is hard to brush through, using a normal hair brush would damage your hair if you tugged at it so using this brush would certainly minimise any damage to the hair. I definitely recommend this brush and think it would be brilliant for someone who suffers from being hair sore or has children who hate having their hair brushed, this sorts out my wuggy main in seconds, and I am very impressed with it and will definitely re purchase another brush when I need to. 

If you would like to try the no tangle styler brush it is available here or here in green or here in pink. The brush retails at prices between £6.80 and £9.95. 

Have you tried the no tangle styler brush? What did you think?

Moroccan Oil - A Review

Hello Lovelies,

A few weeks ago I went to an event in Manchester called the Midsummer Meet and we were kindly given a good bag, I have uploaded a video to my You Tube channel showing all the products that were in the goody bag, if you would like to see that video click here.

There were lots of fantastic products in the goody bag, one of the products was a 25ml bottle of Moroccan Oil, I was really pleased to see the Moroccan Oil in the bag as it is something I have wanted to try for a while but since I have plenty of my Wella Sp Luxe Oil (see review in this post) left I have been waiting to use that up before purchasing the Moroccan Oil.

Moroccan Oil 25ml rep £13.45*

At the event Moroccan Oil had a stand and I spent a few minutes chatting to a gentleman about their products and he gave me a consultation advising me on what products to buy from their range and how to use them, he spoke about the Moroccan Oil and said the best way to use it was to run a small amount through towel dried hair and style as normal. 

I am prone to having oily hair so when I applied the Moroccan Oil I applied a tiny bit and only applied it to the ends of my hair, and styled as normal. 

The amount of Moroccan Oil I used. 

The product smells lovely and a little bit goes a long way, I have long hair and the amount in the photograph about was fine for me to use through the ends of my hair. My hair felt really soft and smelled amazing after using the Moroccan Oil but unfortunately by the evening my hair was greasy, I was so disappointed as I really wanted the product to be amazing, I have read so many blog posts all claiming this to be a wonder product but not for me, I decided to ask Alicia and Nichole to test out the Moroccan oil too, Alicia has the same sort of hair as me, fine but a lot of it and prone to oiliness but Nichole's hair is very dry due to having it bleached. Both Nichole and Alicia found the same results as I had, their hair was left greasy too by the evening of the day the used it. 

I am so disappointed that the Moroccan Oil didn't work out for me, it smells lovely and my hair felt really soft at first but then went lank and eventually greasy. I will be sticking to my Wella SP Luxe oil from now on. 

Like I said I have read so many reviews on this product on lots and lots of blogs and they all loved the product so I think it must depend on your hair type, but unfortunately it didn't work for me at all or Nichole and Alicia. 

If you love Moroccan Oil or want to try it for yourself it is available from Look FantasticFeel Unique and Amazon in a wide range of sizes, and if you would like the 25ml bottle it is available here and here.

Have you tried Moroccan Oil? Did you love it or hate it? 

Thank you for reading, much love as always, 

Zoe x
