I finally bought myself this paddle brush on the picture above. Before this I was using a vent brush thinking it was the best brush for my hair. However, after trying out this paddle brush I wish I would’ve bought it sooner. I love it!!!! I use this brush on wet and dry hair and I feel that my hair hasn’t been breaking as much as it did when I would use the vent hair brush. Also, in order to prevent split ends I always start brushing my hair from the ends and then I work my way up slowly. I recommend this paddle brush to anyone with straight or wavy hair. It is also great for people with thick hair as it does an excellent job at smoothing out your hair without pulling it or hurting your scalp. I still use my vent hair brush whenever I want to achieve some volume on the top of my hair.
