Goody Quik Style Brush and Comb: In the Beauty Brains Bathroom
Posted Aug 01 2012 2:05am
Goody, the maker of haircare gadgets, has just introduced a new Quik Style brush and comb that are supposed to make your hair dry faster.
According to their website you can “Go from wet to beautifully styled hair faster than ever! Super absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water as you style*.” (In case you’re interested the “*” means that they got that number based on laboratory testing. And, if you’re paying attention at all to what Lefty and Righty always say, you know that laboratory testing doesn’t necessarily always sync up to the real world.)
Anyway, the comb has a quirky wide tooth design that I kind of like. The brush is sort of like a towel and a brush in one. (In the past I’ve seen products that Lefty said were based on the same super absorbent stuff they use in diapers. But, just a matter of principle, I refuse to rub anything remotely diaper like on my head.) This one is supposedly made with microfibers so I was glad to give it a try.
The double layer of comb teeth helped separate the hair more which made it easier to squeegee out more water. The brush didn’t seem to make any difference at all. I don’t know if it was because the bristles were too small or because it didn’t soak up enough water. I’ll keeping using the comb but the brush isn’t worth the effort, IMO.
