    In spite of all the high end products I receive to test everyday, I always turn to my affordable and dependable Goody paddle brush to give my ‘do some extra volume when I blow dry it or to brush out any knots and tangles before bed (super important to do, btw! Necessary for silky smooth hair).

    Goody PRO’s new volumizing combs and brushes

    I’m a little bit obsessed with volume when it comes to my hair. I don’t have the super voluminous locks I wish I did, but with some good mousse and hair tools, I do the best I can. But I am always on the prowl for innovative products and tools and this summer, Goody‘s PRO line caught my eye with a couple of covetable items that I now can’t seem to live without.

    All five of these awesome new brushes and combs are great for adding volume but one of my faves is the Volumizing Comb (the middle comb in the photo). It has three rows of bristles to tease the hair in a whole different, less damaging way. Conventional teasing involves tugging and pulling at the hair repeatedly which, as you may know, will leave your hair looking like something out of a bad 80s movie WITH excessive damage.

    With this comb, volume becomes a whole lot easier to get. Kristjan Hayden, Goody‘s celebrity hairstylist (who has styled hair behind the scenes for Canada’s Next Top Model, ET Canada, MTV Canada and more), showed me how to use this comb and get volume without ripping and tugging at my hair.

    First, use the tail of the comb to separate a thin layer of hair from one side of your head. Hold the hair up and gently glide the comb from the end of your hair down to the root, as far as you can go without hurting yourself. Then use the tail end again to separate another section of hair underneath and hold it in the same hand as the other piece of hair. Now repeat the same manoeuvre with the comb but this time, it’ll go through both sections of hair. Do it one more time with a third section of hair and then just gently let the hair fall into place. Lightly comb the top to smooth it out and just like that, your hair has instant volume.

    The Goody Volumizing Comb is currently available in drug stores across Canada for only $3.59. It’s a quick and easy fix that won’t break the bank. It doesn’t get any better than that!

    The rest of the items pictured abover are: Dual Bristle Oval Round Brush, Root Lifter Brush, Root Lifter Comb and the Volumizing Brush.
