The £1 Tangle Teezer



Today I want to share one of my most recent Poundland finds with you. Pound shops have their ups and downs but there can be some real gems in them! Recently a big Poundland has opened near me so I had a look around and found this tangle teezer dupe. I bought it without having high hopes, I never go into Poundland thinking that everything I'm going to buy is amazing, I thought I'd share my thoughts about it with you though!

There were a few different colours available including blue and this purple shade, the colour doesn't bother me though but it is nice to see some nice colours available. It's called Tangle Attack, nicely named I think, they didn't need to name it but I like that they have. It's made out of cheap plastic that won't survive forever but at a pound I don't expect it to. As you can see it does come packaged very much like the popular Tangle Teezer, there is of course a major difference though, the £10 price gap between the two products.

Just like the Tangle Teezer it has short and long teeth that make up the brush but they are no where near as sturdy as the popular original. I did expect this but I was a little worried as my hair is really thick. I have to say it surprised me though as it got the tangles out of my hair reasonably well. It didn't achieve a perfect result but for a pound I think it's really quite good. I think this will work best for those who have thin hair or medium thick hair. It did work on my very thick hair but I think the teeth would need to be longer to achieve a better result.

I have to say though I am impressed, whilst I know it won't last as long as the real deal and the £10.99 version probably does work better I'm very glad I bought this.

Thanks for reading,

  2. This is such a good find! Poundland do some really good stuff, especially the discontinued makeup by Rimmel & Revlon. I've wanted a Tangle Teezer for so long but somehow my money always gets spent on other things and it doesn't get seen as a priority, but seen as though this is only £1 I am deffo going to be looking in my local Poundland to see if they have any of these in stock! Thanks for sharing xx

  4. This looks like such a good dupe, a really good find. My poundland isn't that brilliant to be honest, when people talk about the hidden gems of really good makeup, I get all excited but always end up disappointed when I go in my local x

    1. The one nearest to me isn't fab but this new one that has opened in a nearby city is so big and crammed full of good things!

  5. You can get some absolute gems in Poundland! This sounds fab, although my hair is super thick too so I'll probably give it a miss. I'm trying to steel myself up to get a Tangle Teezer, I'm sure it'll be worth it but it seems such a lot to spend on a hairbrush haha!

    1. Definitely, at the end of the day it is a cheap alternative, won't be perfect but OK for those who don't want to pay £11 and don't mind not getting the best of the best :) xx
