As lovely as it is having long hair, let me tell you detangling it ain’t fun! Whilst growing my hair, I realised that the greasier the roots of my hair gets, the drier the ends of my hair gets. Finding the balance has been a difficult task to say the least.
To try and find a solution, I’ve tried many things like using intensive conditioners and masks just on the ends of my hair. However it still ended up somehow making my roots greasy. Using dry shampoo on my roots made my hair dry as paper...just couldn’t win! And when I tried to brush my insane mess of a hair, I had a lot of hair falling out.
Enter AirMotion Pro. I must say I wasn’t too impressed with the TangleTeezer when I tried it. It seemed to tug on my hair a bit, and the fact that there isn’t a handle just makes it quite difficult to use. The bristles on the AirMotion don’t tug on my hair at all, whether I use it on wet or dry hair. It feels like I’m massaging my scalp and I think it’s down to the fact that there is a combination of 3 different lengths and diameters of bristles. This ensures that you’re ‘reaching’ all the way to your scalp really brushing your hair and making sure there aren’t any tangle left behind at all! Simple yet brilliant.
One of the first things I noticed about the AirMotion Pro, £11.95 was how light it was. As soon as I picked it up, I loved how light it was. It is the lightest hair tool I’ve ever used. If you have as long as hair as I do, you’ll know doing anything with your hair takes forever and your arm will ache. When I blow dry my hair using the AirMotion Pro, my hair looks a lot smoother too. I’ve found it works best in combination with a detangling spray as it really helps the hair retain its shine. My detangling spray of choice is Sachajuan Leave In Conditioner, £22. It doesn’t feel heavy and makes my hair feel super soft. I struggle with really dry ends and this helps to ensure I don’t get split ends. I love the subtle fragrance that lingers and makes my hair smell gorgeous until my next wash! Although this is quite pricey, the bottle is huge, and I don’t think I’ll finish it anytime soon despite using it practically everyday. Anyone struggling with dry ends, invest in a great leave in conditioner and it’ll change the quality and health of your hair!
