TSS Business of the Month for December 2014 is Mira Showers (Kohler Mira Ltd)

Our Business of the Month, Mira Showers (Kohler Mira Ltd) is the company responsible for producing the world’s first thermostatic shower.     The company was first established in London. It formed a base in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in its early days and remains there today, (sites also at Gloucester, Wolverhampton and a factory in Hull, Humberside). The business was privately owned by members of the Walker family who originally manufactured the Leonard shower mixer valves that were used widely in industry, schools and hospitals.   In 1959, the Leonard 722 (one from the company’s original Leonard brand) was introduced. This was the first thermostatic mixing valve designed to control water temperature and flow under UK pressure conditions. After 42 years the Leonard brand was retired and replaced by Mira Thermostatic. The company itself has had a few name changes since the original Walker, Crosweller and Co (est:1921).

Review of DENMAN® Hair Smoother Brushes

We are acquainted once again with Denman, a UK brand used by hairdressers worldwide, to tell you about their new Tangle Smoother Hair Brush and the Shower Brush. Denman Tangle Smoother RRP £10.18 incl VAT It is standard size hairbrush. Dimensions – Brush Length 215mm, Brush Width: 60mm, in a striking Pink colour.

Designed so that it can glide through the tightest hair tangle and is suitable for any hair style. But we do recommend this style of hairbrush for those people with long, thick or fine hair, specifically.  Anyone, in fact, with the type of hair that can get really knotty after pillow contact overnight, after washing or swimming, and especially after vigorous towel drying. This brush will do the best job of detangling wet hair that has been ‘dried off’. The metal pins and the cushioned back (air …

Blog Feature – Batiste Hair Products

We’ve invited Marketing Officer, Katie H from Derbyshire to guest blog about Batiste hair products. Katie currently works in education, she tells us she is new to the world of blogging. She is excited to be writing about things that matter, hair products and the sorts! Katie says this about Batiste and what the products means to her: ‘Batiste Dry Shampoo has been there with me through the highs and lows; late nights, early shifts and trying to disguise the fact I’ve gone straight from one to the other. Batiste, you have been a life-saver product for me and so many other disorganised, yet fabulous, girls. When TSS Reviews asked me to guest blog about this dry shampoo range I jumped at the opportunity to rave about one of my favourite products. Unfortunately I’m not brave enough to leave my hair unwashed to test how hardcore this product can be, however I have come to the conclusion that Batiste products should be used as your new favourite styling spray, and here’s why… I’ve always had …
