Review: Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush

When I opened my Holiday Voxbox from Influenster, the Goody Quikstyle Paddle Brush was the first thing I saw... And I have to admit, I laughed!  When you first lay eyes on this nifty little brush, the design can look somewhat silly.  Trust me, though, I stopped laughing when I realized how well this brush works!

The whole point of the Goody QuikStyle line is to make going from wet hair to great style as painless and quick as possible.  As someone with a lot of hair, I know how much water it can hold after a shower.  I, personally, like to air dry my hair most of the time, which can take forever when it's as long as mine.  I have found that using this brush has not only cut down on the time it takes me to use a hairdryer, but has also made the air-drying process much faster.

Let's take a look at what makes this brush special:

The QuikStyle brush functions just like a regular brush would, but with several key differences.  First of all, those funky-looking blue things are actually tiny microfiber towels that automatically dry hair as you brush.  Neat, huh?  It's like towel-drying, but without all of the messiness and tangling you can do to your hair in the process.  Second, the brush itself is actually hollow, allowing the microfiber bristles to dry quickly and allowing for maximum ventilation when you're using a blowdryer.  Finally, I have to say that I have never used a brush that is this light before.  You know how your arm tends to get tired while you're drying your hair?  Not with this brush!  Its light design makes it easy to handle and surprisingly comfortable to use.

Goody claims that this brush removes an average of 30% of water from hair.  While I can't attest to that exact number, I can definitely tell you that it removes plenty of water from my immediately post-shower hair, making it so much easier and less time-consuming to dry!  I also love that the microfiber bristles are antimicrobial--it makes me much more at ease about sharing this brush with my friends, and I know the brush will stay fresh!

Me with my new favorite brush!
Some people may be concerned about how to clean hair that collects between the bristles out of the brush.  Goody provides easy instructions:  Just take a wide-toothed comb and run it between the bristles.  Not much of a hassle at all for the quality of the product!

Overall, I give this brush a big thumbs up. Although it may look silly, it has some serious drying power!

  1. I saw this in stores and looked past it - although, how could a brush like this not catch your eye? And now I'm seeing it pop up all over the place on blogger! It looks so nice, especially when you have thick hair like mine that takes forever to dry!


    1. Katie, it definitely works wonders for thick hair! I'm in the same boat and it's helped me out a lot. :) Try it out, I bet you'll like it!


  2. I thought about getting one of these, but I wasn't sure if it would work. I myself have A LOT of thick hair so, if it works, I'll definitely be purchasing.

  4. This brush looks great. I never heard of it before. Not for me but for my husband. He has hair that all women would envy. I actually have dredlocks and have not used a brush in 13 years LOL!

  5. I also received the Quikstyle brush in my holiday VoxBox. I absolutely HATE wet hair and was so pleased that this product lived up to its claims. Check out my blog for my complete review!


  6. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Fantastic work!
