Avon Paddle Brush
Advantages: good quality, easy to grip, large area
I have had my Avon paddle brush for a few years now.
~ Appearance ~
It is different to that pictured. Mine is grey in colour and my brush looks bigger than the one in the picture. It is 4 inches wide and nearly 5 inches from the top to the neck of the handle (about 10cm x 13cm).
'Avon' is in light grey lettering at the top of the handle and at the bottom of the handle is a hole which goes right through the handle.
The bristles of the brush are black and are made from plastic with a little grey plastic bobble on the end of each bristle. Although I have had this brush for years none of the bristles have bent out of shape and only one of the grey bobbles has randomly gone black - I think they grey colour has scratched off. This hasn't even scratched off a little bit on any of the other bristles!
~ Price ~
I paid about £6.00 for this paddle brush a few years ago, but looking on the Avon website, www.avonshop.co.uk this hair brush now retails at £7.50, but is currently reduced to £3.75 so hurry if you want one.
The current paddle brush they are selling has a pink handle, but otherwise looks just like the one pictured above, which looks red to me. The dimensions are listed as 24.6cm x 8.2cm
The brush is also available to order from the Avon brochure via your local Avon representative.
~ My thoughts ~
I have long hair, which is very thick. The paddle brush is easy enough to grip and it glides through my hair detangling any knots and making my hair look smooth and sleek.
The bristles are spaced apart widely enough to detangle your hair without pulling or hurting too much.
You do need to go over the same section of hair a few times to detangle any stubborn knots.
The brush is good quality and when you are detangling stubborn knots, the rubber pad which holds all of the bristles does not come away from the brush at all, like I have found with cheaper brushes I have used in the past.
Overall, I am very pleased with this brush. It is good quality and it does its job well. I like using it more than the other brushes that I own and it still looks almost as good as new after a few years.
Summary: Brilliant brush!
