I generally don’t do much with my tresses, but it seems like I’ve been on a roll lately with the hair product reviews. Today, I’m featuring two new gadgets that I’m very excited to share with you. I don’t know if you give much thought to your hairbrushes, but trust me, you will after reading this post.
First up is this sort of wacky-looking contraption that I previewed on Instagram over the weekend. It’s the Goody Quikstyle paddle brush, and it features microfiber bristles that claim to help dry your hair 30% faster. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was actually quite shocked at how effective it was.
I have very coily, kinky hair that loves to get tangled, so I always part my hair into 4 sections before washing to make things easier. I used the same shampoo and conditioner that I reviewed in this post, and finger-detangled my hair in the shower while it was still full of conditioner. After rinsing my hair, I went through my hair section-by-section with the Quikstyle brush. I try to minimize the amount of heat I put in my hair, so I was quite pleased that I barely even had to use my blow dryer afterwards.
Next up is Goody’s Tanglefix brush. My hair was pretty much detangled at this point, but I had very specific plans for this styling tool…
I only straighten my hair a few times per year. But whenever I do, I love using the “chase” method. I usually see it done with a small-toothed comb, but I found the TangleFix to be much more effective. Basically, you place the brush in-front of the flat iron to provide tension that will help stretch your hair while you straighten it. It takes a bit of practice, but it’s smooth sailing once you get the coordination down. I love straightening my hair this way because it allows me to get my hair pretty smooth with just one pass of the flat iron. Afterwards, I just gave each section a quick twirl at the ends for bouncy curls throughout my mane.
And there you have it folks. My total styling time was about 40 minutes (enough time to catch up on the last episode of How to Get Away With Murder). I’ll maintain this style throughout the week by using my satin covered sponge rollers at night and fluffing it out a bit in the morning.
If you’re interested in trying these products for yourself, Walgreens is offering a fantastic Buy One, Get One promotion valid on all Goody products (including both the Quikstyle and TangleFix brushes). You must use your Walgreens Balance Rewards card to get the promotional BOGO offer, and you can sign up in store if you are not a member already. The offer ends on 11/01/2014 and is available while supplies last.
And because I believe in sharing the wealth, I purchased an extra set of brushes out of my own pocket to give away to one lucky reader. You can enter for a chance to win by choosing one or both of the options listed below.
