Beauty Most Unusual: Dry Your Hair with Your Brush

Yup, you read the title right. Imagine a brush that dried your hair for you as you brushed it.


Or terribly unusual?

P.S. Trashy beach read recs after the jump!

The Goody Microfiber Brush is a $13 brush that contains absorbent microfiber between the bristles of the brush which promise to remove 30% of water from wet hair so it acts as a towel, brush, and hair drier all in one.

  • Absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water for faster styling
  • Antimicrobial microfiber keeps the brush fresh
  • Side Vents for maximum air flow
  • Lightweight design to reduce hand fatigue while drying
  • Ergonomic handle is textured for extra grip

Rather a unique yet odd idea right?

I was tempted to pick one up but was a little scared that my hair would end up more tangled than dry with this one.

What do you think of a brush come towel?


Or pretty practical?

Tried it already?

Do share your experience with it.

P.S. I dunno if you’re up for a little trashy bad boy Summer reading but do check out Cherrie Lynn’s Rock Me. Quite a nice quick beach read and particularly wicked since she announced the sequel and follow up story Leave Me Breathless. I’ve been waiting for Leave Me Breathless for what seems like a century. Cherrie’s compared the main character in the story to Adrian Patrick and that’s about ALL I needed to hear as I am absolutely in love with Adrian. He doesn’t know it yet but we be married soon with kids and a white picket fence. You can totally relate to Cherrie’s reads if you’re as big a metal head as she is. I think that’s part of what was so appealing about reading Rock Me as she includes a ton of references to NIN, Korn, etc…

What’s your trashy beach read of the moment?

    I have one of these and I absolutely love it!!! It really does make my hair dry a lot faster! And I have no tangle problems with it! I use it on my dry hair sometimes too and it seems to make my strands smoother than a regular brush! Definitely worth a try 🙂

    • the Muse

      that’s reassuring rebecca I wasn’t sure if it would create a mess of my hair! I’m terribly curious about it! it just looks COOL!

    • Lisa Marie

      I was worried about tangles and of the brush eventually smelling bad/musty. (old wet towel smell?)

  • Becca

    I can’t remember if I read about this brush in Allure or Good Housekeeping. Either way, the magazine gave it to at least one person to test out. I remember that she said her hair was too long for it to get really dry. And that the brush got pretty sopping wet when she was brushing her hair after just after a few minutes. For $13, I’m not so sure. But it does look really awesome and it’s a neat concept.

    • the Muse

      I was kinda feeling that way too…I didn’t try it but my hair is long so I thought it would either be crazy wet after use OR it would tangle my hair. I’m still terribly curious about it though!

      • Tammie

        I think it’s probably meant to be used after already towel drying your hair, to get it even more dry. There is no logical way that that little amount of towel would completely dry anybody’s soaking hair…at least, I hope it’s not meant to be used on soaking wet hair, because that just doesn’t compute for me.

        I have short hair that is really thick in the back…my hair itself is pretty fine, I just have a TON of hair back there, and it takes ages to get dry even after a through toweling off…however at night with a toddler and a dog who like to bark at everything I don’t like to use a hair dryer, so I am interested in trying out this brush to see if it can get the back of my hair any more dry so I don’t have to go to bed with wet hair any more.

  • Tiffany Martin

    OH wow! I’m buying this. It looks like it might be a great helper for those of us with disabilities!

  • KaylaK

    I have thick, medium-long length hair and I do say I really like this brush! I was kind of on the fence but I do notice a pretty good difference in my hair drying time!

  • K.B.

    Only here for the trashy beach read recommendations….

    …of which I have none. lol I will definitely check out Cherrie Lynn’s books, especially as KoRn and NIN take me right back to my “rebellious” high school years.

    • the Muse

      LOL kb! aw not the beauty? hahaha! absolutely adore NIN and Korn too ;D

      • K.B.

        Normally I’m down for the beauty (and/or hair products lol) (I just hauled 3 eye shadows and 2 cremesheen glasses from the new Heavenly Creatures collection), but I’m not interested in this one because I use a wide-tooth comb on my hair when it’s wet. I think it’s a pretty sweet idea, though (one of those, I-wish-I’d-thought-of-it-first deals).

        It’s been a while since I’ve read a trashy book. I’m not intentionally avoiding them, I’ve just been taking a break from my normal book genres to devour YA novels (whereas I normally take a break to read “trashy” books, although I prefer to call them snacks lol). I read “Divergent” and “Insurgent” in, like, 4 work days. I hid my eReader at my desk.

        • the Muse

          i use a wide tooth comb too, in and out of the shower, works great for getting conditioner into hair. lol! I love a GOOD YA myself.

  • ElenaS

    I tried it and sadly returned it. Seems like a good idea BUT really does not dry your hair that much (I have medium length fine hair), towel works much better to absorb water with no tugging.

  • ElenaS

    I am all for new cool gadgets but sometimes the simpler, the better – like a towel or one of those microfiber twist towels that definitely does get your hair drier while applying makeup and keeping hair away from your face.

  • Kim

    I have this brush as my mom gave it me after she got it and did not like it. My hair is fairly long but fine so it doesn’t take too long to dry. It helps get the knots out with less discomfort than my wide-tooth comb. However, I do not think it does much for drying so I’d skip it, Muse.

    • the Muse

      thanks kim! all these nays have assured me I def don’t need!

  • Cassie

    I absolutely am in LOVE with this brush. I picked one up about a week ago and it really does help with the dry time on my hair (I’d say it’s dry about a half hour sooner than just letting it air dry).
    I think people are getting a soppy brush if they aren’t doing a good job with towel drying before hand; this is really meant to get the residual water out of your hair, not ALL of the water from your shower lol. I have longish (right above the nip) fine/medium thickness hair and I really love it.
    Muse, I actually think this will work great in your hair since it’s such a hefty brush – my hair has all the thickness on the bottom so I actually can’t use this near the roots of my hair since it’s too thin and can’t actually get into the deep bristles haha. So your thick hair would probably love this!! I know I do 😀

      • Cassie

        Haha I’m glad I’m tempting YOU for a change!! You’re the one who usually has me scribbling down products on my “to buy” list 😉

  • Melissa

    I have short hair at the moment (a bob) but It will be long-ish again soon as my hair grows freakishly fast. Anyhow, I admit I’m tempted by this for the pre-blow dry time. Yet it seems totally stupid because I can go outside for 15 minutes and my hair will be nearly dry from the 100+ degree temps. So maybe i’ll wait for a sale.

  • Taryn

    I had this in my hot little hand at Walgreens and was thisclose to buying it when I got scared and put it back.

    My hair has been doing very odd things lately and I was worried it would mess it up worse. Now I’m tempted again!

  • Quinctia

    I might be up for trying a brush like this, if I didn’t already know that doing anything except gently detangling with a pick rips all of my hair out when it’s wet.

  • Tammie

    I got this at Walgreens last night! I haven’t tried it yet but I am looking forward to, I hope it works!

  • Tiffany Martin

    I just bought it, I’m going to try it out, and I’ll let you know how it goes, Muse!

  • Katie Grothaus

    I have really long hair that is relatively thick and I absolutely love this brush! I always put my hair in a towel for a few minutes before I part my hair and start using the brush. One thing I do to keep it from getting sopping wet is every minute or so I turn the brush upside down and tap it on my hand. That gets the wet hair to the top so you can take it out and it also fluffs up the towel bits so they continue to work through your hair. If they’re lying flat, they’re really not doing anything.
    I no longer blow dry my hair because I use this to dry it all the way (and I have curly hair!!!) honestly, if you are brushing it right and if you do it till it’s almost completely dry, it will definitely work! It cuts my drying time in half and it gets my hair straighter than a blow dryer (blow dryers usually get my hair really poofy).
    I started doing this because I wanted healthier hair without blow drying, and that’s what I got! I love this product!!!!
