I received the Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush complimentary to test in my December 2012 Influenster Holiday Voxbox. Prior to receiving this item, I was already familiar with the Goody brand (http://www.goody.com/), I bought their Doublewear Elastic Bracelet before and I really like them. They look good when I wear them on the wrist, the metal accents blend in well with my other bracelets; and it means I literally have a hairtie on hand.
Before I begin this review, I have a little secret to share. I hate blowdrying my hair. In fact, I usually skip it. I can’t remember the number of times my parents have nagged at me when they see me walk around dripping water on everything, especially my Mom. She belongs to the old school that believes that leaving the hair wet will result in headaches and other ailments. Still, I’m just lazy and I always prefer to let my hair air dry. Perhaps it’s because I have long hair and it takes so long to blowdry; or perhaps it’s because my hair tangles really easily and every time I blowdry it, I always seem to be tugging at the tangles and losing more hair. The only times I blowdry my hair is when I shower really late and don’t want to sleep with a head of wet hair.
Therefore, when I received the Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush (http://www.influenster.com/review/goody-quikstyle-paddle-brush), I was a little skeptical. I wasn’t sure if I was even going to use it and I doubted it will help much. However, the husband and I had a late night out and after showering, he suggested I give the paddle brush a try. And OMG, I was very pleasantly surprised as how well the Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush work!
Goody markets QuikStyle as a “towel and brush in one” and it really works so. The microfiber bristles really absorbs water, and it took me half the time it usually takes the blowdry my hair. And somehow, the bristles seems to detangle my hair smoothly, unlike any other brush I use. It almost seem like magic!
One can see the rows of microfiber bristles above. They are really thick and quite soft. I am really happy with this brush – it really does what it says and it makes blowdrying my hair – a chore I previously quite dislike – something much more tolerable. According to the website, the microfiber is also antimicrobial, which is great considering that I’m usually too lazy to blow dry the microfiber after using.
Upon searching Goody’s site, I discovered that Quikstyle also comes in a Half-Round Styler Brush form that should be great for styling the hair. I’m definitely considering a purchase!
