Let me introduce you...

to the Goody Start Style Finish 43mm Ceramic Ionic Porcupine Hot Round Brush. Now exhale!

I stumbled across this bad boy in Boots whilst looking for a round brush, something similar to the BrushLab Thermal Jumbo Hair Brush so that I could attempt LolaMarie7's "round brush your hair" tutorial. I'm sure you have already seen it but for those who haven't you can watch it here.

I've never heard of this brand before but after a bit of research with the aid of Google i've discovered they produce a wide range of brushes and combs for every stage of hair styling. They claim by selecting a tool from each step you'll see your best results yet.

This brush promises to:-

- add volume
- help reduce frizz
- straighten

I can vouch for 2 of the 3. I've come to accept that my hair doesn't retain volume. If your hair is thick/heavy like mine I wouldn't expect miracles from this brush. Saying that however the bristles have reduced frizz and made my hair feel uber soft plus it takes me half the time to blow dry my hair due to the quick dry ceramic plates.

Despite its bulky size, it's relatively light therefore it's easy to maneuver through your hair. I'm a big fan of the porcupine bristles. A lot of brushes are made entirely of the flexible bristles however the Goody brush has a combination . For my hair type I need a sturdier bristle to get through my mop. My hairdresser always jokes that I have a lot of hair hence why it's so thick.

This brush has pushed my Denman paddle brush to the back of the drawer.

The Goody brush range is stocked in Boots but you can also check out their website. Prices range from £3.49 to £11.99.

Have you tried any Goody brushes?


  1. I picked up the Andrew Barton I love volume brush in Asda after seeing Kelanjo19 talk about it in one of her videos. It is brilliant but I need to watch that video - I find blow drying my hair so tedious I normally just tip my head upside down and blast it!!

  2. @ my hairs the worst it can get quite tatty whilst blow drying. I wish I had a hairdresser in my family x

  3. I bought a brush by Goody today, it's similar to yours except it says it's for extreme volume and not straightening. Maybe thats why your not getting much volume? x

  4. Ooooo this looks amazing, I may just have to invest in one.
    Lovely blog.
