If you love smooth, glossy and frizz-free hair, use this large, flat-based hair brush when blowdrying. The best match! The paddle hair brush is very similar to the cushion hair brush but is distinguished by its larger cushion base of bristles. Paddle brushes are flatter than the cushion hair brush and used when you have lots or long hair to deal with. They are perfect to blowdry smooth naturally straight hair or to finish frizzy, wavy or curly hair.
