Remember I shared that I received the Goody Quikstyle Paddle Brush in my Holiday VoxBox from Influenster? Well, I’m finally ready to share my thoughts on this innovative new brush.
The Goody Quikstyle Paddle brush boasts the ability to help increase your hair’s drying time by 30%. The brush is made up of plastic bristles with absorbent microfiber bristles nestled between them.
The microfiber in the brush is antimicrobial to keep the brush fee of micro-organisms. That’s a bonus but still clean your brush regularly.
While the Quikstyle brush is definitely on the innovative side, how does it fair with hair care? Keep reading.
I was very reluctant to try this brush on my curls. I had used microber towels in the past to dry my hair only to have it ripped out.
Microfiber acts like a magnet to the hair in order to remove excess water. However, this is not good for fine strands because it can result in ripping of the hair. If you have thicker hair, this may not be an issue.
Another problem I ran across with this paddle brush is while I carefully ran the brush down my strands working from the bottom up to slightly detangle, I kept coming across snagging which if I weren’t careful would have ripped my hair out significantly.
The Goody Quikstyle Paddle Brush is a great idea in theory. However, it’s not a one size fits all hair brush. In my opinion, this brush is more tailored for straight hair.
In order for the brush to do its job of decreasing the hair’s drying time effectively, it also needs to glide freely down the hair shaft. That’s almost impossible for kinky curly hair. So, I won’t be using this brush on my hair but my daughter will use it on her weave in order to help it dry faster when she washes it.
Good try Goody but not great for us fine haired curly girls. That’s OK though. Not all products are tailored for all people. I still love the Goody Flex barrettes, Goody Ouchless bands and Goody Ouchless bobby pins! Now, these work well for all hair types.
