Arconic Paddle Brush
I go through this cycle of growing my hair to be waist length or longer then cutting it into a short bob; having short hair makes me realise how difficult long hair is to manage or even just to brush through...I'm currently in the waist length hair stage and oh boy, it's getting to be a pain but thankfully along with my army of detangling brushes, I've found another brush that has been helping me to manage the mane.

*Arconic Curved Paddle Brush (£19.99) 
I was kindly sent this brush to test out; this unusual curved paddle brush was created for medium to long hair lengths by John Gillespie. I have gone through so many paddle brushes since I discovered how amazing they were for long, thick hair back in my early teens. Paddle brushes can manage the amount of hair I have so much easier than regular sized brushes, so I don't have to spend forever brushing my hair.
Arconic Paddle Brush
The curved shape of this paddle brush is specifically designed for blow drying large sections of hair easily and to create 'movement with a strong finish'. I don't blow dry my hair regularly but this month I have been more often which my hair is rebelling against, it doesn't like to be brushed, it likes to be left alone. This curved paddle brush has definitely been helping to dry, smooth and tame my frizzy, long hair when I need to blow dry it rather than let it dry naturally. I've also been using it on my almost dry hair to smooth out the frizziness or to dry it fully.

It seemed to hold my hair really well while it's being dried and the curved shape helps me to dry large sections while smoothing and reducing frizz. If you have medium to long hair that is unfortunately prone to frizziness or if you aren't very skilled when it comes to blow drying your hair, like me, then you need to check out this brush. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Do you have any blow drying tips or product recommendations? Have you tried this brush?

  3. I've never got along with paddle brushes, they've always felt really uncomfortable and harsh on the scalp. This sounds wonderful though x

  21. I love the sound of this, and don't actually own a large paddle brush. I tend to stick to the detangling brush types.

  22. I used to always use paddle brushes, I haven't in years. Think my de tangle brushes took over. I have such thick hair I should
    Really start using it again.
