Add softness and luster using ion technology with the Ceramic + Ion Supreme Combo Oval Cushioned Paddle Brush by Olivia Garden.
I work in front of the camera and one the hair stylists used this brush on my hair. I have thick, full, slightly frizzy, wavy-curly hair. My usual style is a sleek blow out with lots of volume. I have always used large round brushes with mixed bristles, especially to achieve volume.
The best part of this brush is it makes blow drying time faster. You don't have to run the brush through your hair as much as you would with a round brush. The finish leaves the hair completely frizz free, sleek, shiny, glossy--without ANY product. I usually finish the look with a shine serum just on my ends.
Now that I have been introduced to this brush, I no longer need to lug around four different types of paddle brushes, round brushes, teasing combs, ect. I just take this brush and my blow dryer. I bought two of them and keep on in my travel bag.
I have noticed the bristles began curling up after about six months of use. I don't know if that is standard or if I just use a lot of heat with mine. Either way, the result is worth replacing it twice a year, the price can't be beat.
This is a must for any beauty kit! Makes great gifts also!
I bought this brush and a $2.99 Zoe Black & Silver Paddle brush to see if it was worth paying extra for a hair brush. I have wild, wavy hair that I like to blow dry straight, so I was looking for a brush that was good for that. I would have to say that this brush does not measure up to the $2.99 brush. It does not brush through my entire hair, but rather just brushes the top surface of it. Once my hair is straight, then this brush is okay to use for regular brushing but does not work well for blow drying it. It is gentle because it does not brush through the entire hair so pulling or getting caught in a tangle is less likely to occur. I saw other reviews talking about a pic that is built into the brush, and the tag that was on the brush also mentioned it, but I have not discovered where that is. Overall, I would not have bought this brush and would only recommend it to someone who has naturally straight and somewhat thin hair for them to use for regular brushing but not styling.
I really love this brush. I have fine hair and it seems to make it feel full when I use this brush.
I like this brush a lot. I would recommend it.
Leaves hair smooth but did tangle my hair and the handle is hard to hold
olivia garden has some the best brushes out there, they're definitely worth the price. i literally have 7 different brushes of hers (i counted 7 in my head but i might be forgetting 1, so i might even have 8), besides that all the positive reviews speak for themselves. and i've purchased all these brushes within the last year or so, i've never cared to much about brushes until i seen a lot of hair stylists talking about her brushes and once i got my first one which was a round brush of hers i was literally hooked. great brushes!
I was wary about purchasing this brush due to the price tag and negative reviews but I took a shot and I'm glad I did. I've owned Olivia garden brushes in the past and I've loved them, they last years and are good quality. This brush leaves my hair so smooth and shiny! I took away one star because when I first got it the static was ridiculous but after using it on wet hair it was fine. Plus the mixed bristles do wonders for you ends. Will be buying again!
