Review: Goody Quikstyle

12:10:00 AM mandy 8 Comments

Haircare is definitely not one of my top priorities. My hair is not amazing, but honestly I am just too lazy to do much of anything with it. The usual haircare routine is literally just shampoo, wrap in towel, let it soak up some water, and then leave my hair down to air dry. I only comb through my hair when I feel it is very knotted (usually after I wake up).

Air drying hair takes forever. But a girl's gotta do what she's gotta do for healthier hair! (Especially after years of Japanese perming that I did in my middle school & early high school years.) For reference, I have mid to long length and relatively straight, yet sometimes poofy, hair. If I am just at home it can take a good 5+ hours for my hair to completely dry. When I go outside with wet hair, of course, it dries much quicker because of the wind.
Goody Quikstyle is a paddle brush with anti-bacterial microfiber bristles in between the standard knobbed plastic bristles. The product is supposed to help speed up the drying of hair and detangling of knots.
I was not expecting anything from this brush but it never hurts to try something out right? I used the Good Quikstyle exclusively after I washed my hair.

It did help take out tangles a lot easier and quicker than when I was using a comb. However, I really do think that any type of hair brush in general would probably detangle well. (I haven't used a brush in years so there may be some terrible brushes out there.)

As with the quicker drying time? Ehh...I personally did not experience my hair drying any faster than it normally does. The microfiber bristles did absorb some water though because when I laid it on a paper towel it did leave a wet spot on the paper towel. It's just that compared to the amount of water my hair holds, even after having wrapped my head in a towel for half an hour or more, the Quikstyle's absorption just cannot compare.

This is definitely something I would never have even considered getting because I really didn't have a need for a new comb or brush. After having the opportunity to try this out, it is still a product I probably would not repurchase if for whatever reason the one I have breaks or is lost. I will continue to use it interchangeably with my comb but I don't think this product is anything to rave about.

What are your haircare routines like? Did anyone else try this brush out? How did you like/not like it?

  1. I've always airdried my hair but somehow the ends are still so dry. I need to change up my shampoo/conditioner or try a mask some time soon! Too bad the brush didn't work that well for you, it sounds more like a gimmicky product. :T

  2. I have really thick hair so air drying takes a long time for me too. That's interesting that the brush helps to detangle! I would think since the bristles are thick and fabric covered, it would equal more friction and not run through the hair easily.

    1. I've always used it when my hair was wet. It didn't leave friction then, but I think if I used it to brush dry hair it would.

  3. A shame the product didnt work out, but I suppose that was to be expected. Seems too good to be true. I was excited at first, thinking there could be a product that would dry my long long hair in a shorter amount of time but I guess in the end there isnt the miracle product that we want lol my hair takes foreverrr to dry.

    My haircare routine is pretty simple. Head and Shoulders shampoo because I've got a dandruff problem, and then I use Tressemme hair conditioner. So far this is the combination that works best with my hair. Even the infamous Tsubaki shampoo that everyone raves about didn't work for me (created dandruff!)

    1. Same! Have you tried moroccan oil? A lot of people say it helps decrease drying time (I haven't tried it yet though).
