All You Need Is Love

According to national youth organisation, headspace, 75% of all mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. In fact, 1 in 4 young people aged between 12-25 years old have experienced a mental health issue in the last 12 months – a higher prevalence than any other age group in Australia. With suicide considered the leading cause of death in young people, the need for early intervention and holistic support is paramount.

This is an issue that is close to my heart. We all have been affected by mental health in someway. Whether it's that you have faced mental health issues yourself, or known someone that has, it is a prevalent issue in today's society.

Dessata has created a challenge to help raise awareness for youth mental health. All you have to do is purchase the Dessata All You Need Is Love* brush, and $5 from your purchase will be donated to headspace. Then simply don't brush your hair for 24 hours, and share a photo or video of Dessata detangling to your knots and tangles with the #24HourNoBrushChallenge. 

For those of you who haven't heard about Dessata before, let me tell you a little bit about their brushes. Each brush is designed to gently detangle your hair without pulling or breaking your hair. Each brush is made up of 440 triple length flexible bristles, all manufactured with a special gel so that they don't break over time either. 

The brush has been specially designed to 'Immerse yourself in a world of colour, psychedelia, music and graffiti. Bright, saturated and full of happy and joyous tones is the colour identity of the hippie-style, predominant in the 60s'. It is a beautiful and colourful design, which makes it so easy to support such a wonderful campaign.

Each brush is available in three different sizes - mini, original and maxi. Each designed to suit a different hair length and thickness. For my super long and thick hair. Designed for women with thicker, curly or unmanageable manes, the Dessata MAXI offers 30% longer bristles compared to the Dessata original, allowing the MAXI to penetrate hair deeper and facilitate hard to reach knots and tangles with ease. I have tried the original size previously and I find that the original was really hard to use and get through all of my hair. I was worried that I would have a similar experience with the maxi brush and that it wouldn't work so well. I have been pleasantly surprised! 

Deciding to take part in the 24 hour challenge, I decided I wouldn't brush my hair for a day. In Canberra wind, my hair ends up feeling like chaos - knotty, flat and just a mess. So I gently took the Dessata brush through my hair and I was pleasantly surprised by how soft and shiny my hair looked afterwards. The Maxi brush made it so easy to get the knots out of my hair without pulling and without it being a painful experience. It was just easy.

So if you are looking for a new brush to help making brushing your hair easy, or if you just want to support an amazing cause, I cannot recommend checking and grabbing one of the gorgeous All You Need Is Love brushes! Together we can raise awareness and support for youth mental health.
