Product Review: The Tangle Teezer Works Like a Charm

I have long, unruly hair and have tried most brushes on the market. I was previously using a wide-tooth comb to detangle my hair after washing but it was really hard to find a good one.  However, a lifeline has been provided in the form of the Tangle Teezer.  


The Tangle Teezer is an ergonomically designed brush made by its very clever inventor Shaun Pulfrey, which claims to easily smooth knotted hair. 


I first came across the Tangle Teezer when my lovely blogger friend, Vima,  gave me a Tangle Teezer Salon Elite. It look a bit different from other brushes, but I was desperate.  I also got the hot pink  Magic Flowerpot for my itty bitty girl and crossed my fingers. 


This little beauty is my new best friend.  It thoroughly detangled my hair in half the time it usually takes. There was also little shed hair in the brush compared to when I use my wide-tooth comb. I am not sure how the teeth in this brush are made, but they easily untangle any knot in my hair.


The Tangle Teezer looks like an oversized, spiked jelly bean but guess what? It works like a charm! The bristles are made of  high quality plastic and I'm pretty sure it would hold up to daily use. The bristles have different lengths, which makes it slide through your hair and gently untangle knots without yanking. Its stubby teeth set over an ergonomic plastic pad which sits nicely in the palm of your hand. There are no fabric parts, so cleaning and maintaining the brush are an absolute breeze. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!


Every time I use it, I feel like my hair had gone through the transformation that Princess Mia gets in the movie, Princess Diaries. Seriously, this thing works like magic!


Behold! The Magic Flowerpot! It's brilliant for toddler's tangled hair!



I know little girls hate getting their hair brushed, but trust me this product does exactly what it says. :) This brush is great for detangling my six-year old daughter's wavy and seemingly permanently knotted hair, which usually resembles a haystack in the morning. I do not know what she does in the night but every morning used to be a nightmare of her screaming at me as I battled to remove the worst of the knots from her hair. Once her wet hair is combed (cue severe tears and screaming) it has to be left to air dry as a hair dryer creates an effect straight out of a shampoo commercial.


I've tried so many types of brush, but it always resulted in tears from my daughter who seems to have a delicate scalp. At last, we've cracked it and can brush away without a flinch.  Before we got this brush, we would spend at least 30 mins every morning taming my daughter's bird's nest, but this brush does it in 5 seconds, with no tugging and therefore, no fuss from my kiddo! I can honestly say that this brush changed our mornings for the better.


I am very impressed with this product. This brush glides straight through without any kicking and screaming. She also loves the bright, girly color, and the shape means she can hold it easily herself. Also makes it easier to find when the brush has been 'tidied' somewhere.



Magic Flowerpot is an adorable flower-shaped brush. It effortlessly detangles my daughter's hair without pain and tears. Specifically designed for children, Tangle Teezer Magic Flowerpot makes years of tears a thing of the past. This easy to hold, detangling flower hairbrush allows children to brush their own hair easily without any tugging or pulling.


The 'Flower Pot' acts as a stand for the brush and can store small hair accessories in it. Upon contact with tangles, Tangle Teezer Magic Flowerpot gently and effortlessly delivers smooth, shiny and tangle-free hair in an instant. It works wonders on either wet or dry hair, easy to hold and definitely worth its weight in gold.


No tears. No tantrums. No tangles. 

Now, life is so much easier, combing through her hair releases the tangles with ease. It is really a miracle. She no longer whines when it is time to brush her hair. It's exclusively designed with children in mind, the Magic Flowerpot allows them to brush their own hair. Now, she can brush some of her hair by herself. So proud of her.


All in all, I'm so impressed with the Elite Tangle Teezer and Magic Flowerpot that I may splash out in the future for the miniature Compact Styler for my handbag! The key aspect is that not only does the brush not pull or yank hair out reducing breakage, it really speeds up the whole process. The nifty little bean shape makes it easy to hold and control the stroke.


I cannot stress enough that every household with long-haired inhabitants should own one of these! Tangle Teezer dramatically reduces hair breakage, splitting and damage! This is the best thing that ever happened to my hair! No more yanking out knots. I don't know why it works as well as it does, but it does genuinely work. Everyone should have one.

I think it's also great for grooming a dog with a particularly fine coat that matts easily and gets full of burrs, seeds and all that nature can offer. It glides through even the most stubborn of tangles.

Please, please, please do yourself the favor and grab a Tangle Teezer. I highly recommend it.  Life will be easier and it's great for moms with kids who have curly hair. It is honestly a great gift idea too!

Prices start from P800 and will be available in leading department stores in Manila soon. It's a bit pricey but if you ask me, I would definitely invest in this cult-favorite and best detangling brush that really works! If you want to check the other designs, then hit up www.tangleteezer.com to view the whole range, including the child-friendly Magic Flower Pot!

How do you keep your hair tangle free? Would you grab yourself a Tangle Teezer brush? Get one! Your hair will THANK you for it!

Join the Breeze Sige Sabado movement and say Yes to Learning!



Every stain leads to something good. With Breeze, moms ensure their kids experience life and develop to the fullest. Time for moms to say "Sige sa mantsa!"


Moms play the important role of being their children’s first and foremost teacher. They have the power to ensure their children grow up to be well rounded and happy kids. However, moms, by nature, have the tendency to be over protective of their children especially with regards to being messy. They often associate getting dirty and stained with something negative such as being irresponsible as well as hard work for them in terms of cleaning. This is the kind of mindset that Breeze, one of the country’s leading detergent brands, would want moms to change. Since Breeze strongly believes that life’s lessons are best learned through experience, the brand strongly encourages moms to adopt the Sige sa Mantsa philosophy which is all about allowing their kids to be kids and explore and learn positive values even at the expense of getting dirty and stained.


Are you one of the Sige Moms? Ready to make #SigeSabado happen? Join the Sige Sabado movement and say Yes to Learning! Why? Because Saturdays are for the family!


To further forward the advocacy of child learning and development, Breeze launched the Sige Sabado Movement which calls on moms to dedicate Saturdays to their kids. Sige Sabado hopes to encourage moms to spend their Saturdays creating lasting memories with their children by doing fun bonding activities together. Even if this means often getting dirty and stained, it’s okay since Sige Moms know that what matters most are the values learned, memories created and fun enjoyed in the process. Because of its strong stain removal power, Breeze is mom’s number one partner in encouraging active play and experiential learning since mom doesn't need to worry about the mess this often brings.


“Kids learn best when they’re having fun with their moms,” said Unilever Home Care Marketing Director Mr. Jay Go, during the Sige Sabado Movement launch held at Arts in the City in Bonifacio Global City. “Through the Sige Sabado Movement, we hope to cultivate a stronger, more loving relationship between moms and their kids. After all, no matter how busy life gets, we should always make time for the ones who matter most. If this also leads to stains, it’s okay. Dirts and stains are temporary, memories and lessons are permanent. Sige sa mantsa! Sige sa learning!”

Meet the Circle of Sige Moms

As a highlight of the event, celebrity moms Barbie Almalbis-Honasan, Christine Bersola-Babao, Dimples Romana, Gladys Reyes, Nikki Valdez and Carmina Villaroel- Legaspi were introduced as part of the Sige Mom Circle, a group of empowered moms united in their commitment to take charge of their kids’ learning and memories"


“Sharing in our vision of spending weekend time with their kids, our Sige Mom Circle will encourage other moms to participate in their children’s learning and spread the advocacy by actively sharing their everyday experiences with other moms,” said Go.
Sige mom Nikki let's her daughter play so she can learn and have fun at the same time. 
To make their Saturdays even more exciting, Breeze introduced the Sige Sabado Playbox to the Circle of Sige Moms, media moms, guest moms and their kids. The playbox is filled with materials and instructions for making harlequin masks, dinosaur egg bath soaps, choco art, raise a monggo plant, animal balloon paper mache, popsicle stick pen holder and DIY slime.


In a recent survey conducted by Breeze, they found out that Moms want to do activities with their kids but often run out of ideas. One hundred percent said that they wish they had activity ideas they can do with their kids. Through the playbox, Breeze aims to help moms by providing them with weekly fun activities through the playbox. Sige Sabado How To sheets will be available on Facebook and Breeze websites for moms and kids to download and create their own DIY projects. They can also capture and share their bonding and activity moments through the Sige Sabado Facebook App where weekly winners will receive a Breeze giftpack and the Sige Sabado Playbox while grand prize winners will win a trip to Legoland Malaysia Resort.

Use the app and get a chance to be part of the exclusive Circle of Sige Moms for amazing prizes. You'll never know, you might just win a trip to LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort for 2!

Breeze also seeks to help educate moms on why developing the Sige Sabado habit is so important for their child’s over all well being. Teacher Nurai, a Doctor of Family Life and Child Development from Guru Firm shared important insights and tips on raising smart and active kids, as well as the benefits of the Sige Style of parenting.

During the event, resident teacher and Ateneo de Manila University professor Wittam Bautista also spearheaded an activity where the moms and their kids designed aprons for their Sige Sabado activities. The kids were also treated to creative activities like cupcake decorating and canvas painting.

Baby Care Plus+ White: You and your Little Angel’s Best Buddy

As a mom, there are a lot of delightful moments to share with your baby, and one of them is giving your little angel a bath. That warm glow on his face after every shower is precious enough because you know how simple routines like this can bring so much comfort to your baby.

To help give your baby gentle skin care and protection, especially during bath time, Tupperware Brands Philippines, the country’s leading direct selling company, offers Baby Care Plus+ White. A baby care line that’s pH-balanced, dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and clinically proven mild and safe for baby’s sensitive skin, Baby Care Plus+ White is your partner in giving your baby the utmost protection and care his young skin needs.
A product line that truly cares for baby’s delicate skin:Baby Care Plus+ White shampoo, bath, powder, cologne, lotion, and soap. 
Each Baby Care Plus+ White product has unique ingredients that cater to your baby’s specific skin care need, plus other additional benefits guaranteed to keep your baby’s skin in tip-top condition.

Now that the summer season is just around the corner, your baby may often experience that uneasy feeling because of the scorching heat, but you definitely don’t want that to happen.

Here are some tips to make sure your little angel feels comfortable all throughout the day:
  • Give your baby a fun top to toe wash. Wash your baby’s hair first with a moisturizing shampoo like Baby Care Plus+ White Shampoo. It has Cetiol Conditioners which moisturizes your baby’s hair and scalp preventing dryness, and keeping your baby’s hair soft, silky and freshly fragrant. 
  • Use a gentle soap for your baby’s ears, neck, arms and legs. Baby Care Plus+ White Bath or Baby Care Plus+ White Soap contains Lamesoft Skin Protector which forms a natural barrier to protect bay’s skin. It also contains Olive Oil extracts guaranteed to cleanse your baby in a mild way. Don’t forget to give special attention to the diaper area, which is often exposed to dirt. 
  • Keep your baby fresh. Make sure baby’s room is clean, well-lighted, and well-ventilated. For extra help in keeping your baby fresh and fragrant all day, you can apply Baby Care Plus+ White powder on their body, and use Baby Care Plus+ White cologne. Both products have a long-lasting mild, powdery floral scent that your little angel – and those who like hugging him – will surely love. 
  • Moisturize with a Vitamin E- rich lotion. Retain baby’s soft and moisturized skin by gently massaging some lotion with 24-hour locked in moisturizers and Vitamin E, like Baby Care Plus+ White Lotion. A simple massage promotes your little angel’s wellness as it gently stretches muscles and joints to help coordinate movement. Warm up this clinically mild and gentle lotion on your palms and lightly massage his toes and feet, all the way to his tummy and back, in circular motions. Velvety skin and stronger muscles; now, that’s a two in one benefit for your baby. 
With these tips, you can just simply enjoy each day with your little angel without worrying too much about the heat and its effects on his delicate skin. Keep baby feeling, smelling, and looking fresh with Tupperware Brands’ Baby Care Plus+ White, you and your baby’s best buddy.

Lenten Recipes for Aspiring Superbods

The Lenten season brings challenges to make no-meat meals as appetizing and flavorful. Thankfully, Century Tuna and nutritionist to the stars Nadine Tengco came up with delectable and filling Lent-friendly recipes for the aspiring Superbods.

Many of the dishes feature the original healthy meat, Century Tuna Flakes in Oil. Century Tuna contains Omega 3, which helps burn body fat, shrink abdominal fat cells and stop certain genes that trigger inflammation on belly fat, in addition to promoting a healthy heart.

All five will reveal their Superbods – honed by the Superbods Diet and Workout Plan designed by Nadine and Coach Jim Saret for Century Tuna, respectively – this April 25 to 27 in the country’s ultimate summer destination, Boracay.
