I was at the grocery store the other day casually walking around the aisles while waiting for my sister when I found myself in the hair care aisle. As I was checking out and reading the shampoo labels to entertain myself (yes, I do this. Don’t judge me, k?) I saw a small box that looked quite out of place in the sea of shampoo and conditioners. Inside it was a pink and purple brush that looked a lot like my favorite Tangle Teezer brush…
Obviously, I just had to check it out. I immediately turned my cart around and made a mad dash towards the hair accessory aisle. I was happy to see that the one I saw at the Haircare aisle wasn’t the only color and the only style!
Paganini, a company known for making hair brushes and hair tools, came out with a detangling brush that are Tangle Teezer and The Wet Brush dupes in fun colors. They have a dupe for the original Tangle Teezer, a dupe for the travel Tangle Teezer (but without the cover) and a dupe for The Wet Brush. I originally wanted to pick up the travel Tangle Teezer dupe, but I thought it would be better to get the bigger one – the dupe for The Original Tangle Teezer – since I didn’t have one in that size. To be honest, my hoarder self was tempted to get one in each size/style but I was able to resist!
You know what’s the best part? The brushes are less than PHP300.00 each! The one that I picked up was PHP179.75 and it works amazingly well, although I do have to say that the bristles are stiffer than the Tangle Teezer. I also love the colors that these come in. I saw a pink/purple combo, a green/blue combo, a plain black, a green and a purple as I was rummaging through the selection. I don’t experience tugging and pulling when I brush my wet hair with this, and I experience very minimal hair fall – less than when I use a regular brush – when I use this.
So there you have it – definitely check the hair accessory/hair tool aisle the next time you are at the grocery store. If you have been wanting to try the Tangle Teezer or The Wet Brush but have been put off by the price or the lack of availability here in the Philippines, this might be the one for you! I’m not sure where else this is available, but I found mine at SM Hypermarket in Sucat Paranaque. Happy hunting!
