Paddle brushes?

Morning all,
My sister has asked me to get her a paddle brush for her birthday. Does anyone have any top recommendations? She has thick, wavy hair.

Denman always used to be the best. I dont know any other makes.
I can only use a paddle brush, but have been using Asdas own for about 5 years.

Make sure the brush is one piece, not the brush and a handle with a join, this rips your hair out painfully.
And a nice padded bed.

I have a Mason Pearson brush. It used to take me about 20 minutes to brush through my dd1's tangled hair but it only takes a couple of minutes now.

I love Aveda's paddle brush. Firm enough to get through my tangled locks but with enough give that it doesn't rip my hair out. It was quite expensive maybe 20-30 quid but I've had mines for 8 years so a worthwhile investment.

Here's a link to aveda's review website but you can get them in house of frasers.

I second gracie about the aveda brush, have this and love it. Definitely worth the money too as iv had mine a long time.

Also think the umberto giannini one is very good, I bought it in boots to keep at my BFs house. Good slightly cheaper alternative to the aveda one.

Yep, another vote for the Aveda paddle brush here too.

Second the Denman! Have 3 of them. One at home, one at work and one at my Dad's. Much better than the fancy hair salon branded one I once bought..

I'm a hairdresser and I swear to god the one that I use and prefer has to be the one that I brought from Primark for £1 I can't fault it...
