Ouchless Brush and Ouchless Elastics #Giveaway 9-23

Goody Ouchless Brush
The ultimate experience in styling comfort, smartly designed to reduce snags and glide easily through the hair.  Finally, a complete line of brushes for all hair types.  Goody Ouchless promises to care for your hair and reduce snags and breakage.
Goody Ouchless Elastics
Made with a New Smart Stretch Core to bring longer stretch life to each elastic.  Ouchless elastics will now hold their shape and remain stronger for longer.  As always, each Goody Ouchless elastic promises to care for your hair and reduce snags and breakage.

My Take: 
I just found my new favorite hair brush! I love this thing so much I actually threw away my old hair brush.  I had always used a paddle type brush similar to this one that had the metal bristles with the little plastic knobs at the end. I would use them till the bristles would start falling out.  But now that I have my Goody Ouchless Brush I'll never go back.  This thing goes right though my hair, no matter if I just got out of bed, or out of a car with the windows down.  And it doesn't pull my hair.  I was really surprised that since it's plastic that it didn't create static in my hair either. It's really neat how the inner cushion squishes down as you press the bristles against your hair, it's almost like it's form fitting to how hard you brush. Really you have to try it to see just how awesome it is.  I love the Ouchless Elastics too.  Just to honestly test them out right I put one in my daughter's hair right before she got into bed one night. And to my amazement after all the tossing and turning she does and the mess her hair can be in the morning the elastic came right out...and with NO hair attached!  It was great, she didn't even know I had taken it out. Usually with the other elastics she is yelling at me for pulling her hairs, not with the Ouchless Elastics.  Two great products from a great line, I love Goody hair products.

  1. When I was in the 4th grade we were reading Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. Violet mentioned how she put the gum behind her ear to save it. Well we were on our way home from a field trip and I had bought a really big jaw breaker with gum in the middle. When I got to it, I thought it would be fun to be like violet so I put the gum behind my ear. Little did I know it would get stuck to my hair! I was so upset, when we got back my parents asked what happened and I lied and told them I was eating something and had the gum on my finger, then I got an itch behind my ear and that's how it got stuck. I was afraid that if they knew I did it because of the book they wouldn't let me finish reading it. We got home and used peanut butter to get most of it out, but we did have to cut some of it out. I have since then told my parents the truth and we all just laugh about it now. I was so upset then though.
    And let's see something about my hair? Well two things, first it won't hold a curl to save my life! It drove my friend crazy because she was studying cosmetology and would always do my hair for homecoming and her competitions, but we just couldn't get it to hold a curl. The other thing is it gets greasy so fast! I can do absolutely nothing all day and it will just be so gross by night. Oh and one more thing, I love to have my hair long. I recently cut it for the first time in 3 years and it's still below my shoulders, I got about 12 inches cut off.

  2. one day recently, 1 of my daughters (she's 9) got a round brush so stuck in her hair, it took me 45 minutes to get it out. I was being soo careful. I felt so bad. But it finally got out and didn't have to cut it!

  3. After I go diving, my hair shrivels up into one giant knot from the salt water. One time it took me 3 days to untangle it!

  4. This is a terrible hair story, aren't they the best? It was my sophomore homecoming in High school, and my hair is naturally very thick and healthy so why not curl it? I wanted big waves and curls but I had no idea how. So my mom helped me and being a child of the eighties was a strong believer in two words: hair spray. I went out with my friends, danced, and rode home with the windows down. Foolishly, I never looked at a mirror. I came home and when I saw myself I nearly screamed, my hair had grew to be about a foot taller than me, tangled to be almost dreadlocks. Needless to say, I have been terrified of hair spray since. I cannot forget how long it took to brush it out, how painful. This ouchless brush would have been a godsend at the time I imagine. Tragic hair story over. My email is :mtaggart4852@gmail.om Thanks so much!

  5. well, I don't so much have a hair story - but I do have a typical story of a 4-year-old who HATES for me to brush her hair. it's pretty tragic I guess. :) I think this brush would help!!

  6. I don't know what I am doing in my sleep but I must be pretty active. Every morning I wake up with my hair looking like a bird has used it to nest in. I could use a good brush! Though the nest is a very attractive look!

  8. When my daughter was about 3, she got a Polly Pocket figure (from McDonald's or something...the kind that didn't move at all) ensnared in her hair. I'm still unsure of how exactly it happened, but it was stuck good. Her hair was wrapped around each of Polly's outstretched arms, between her legs, and around her neck. I *almost* had to cut it out, but she had *never* had a haircut and I wasn't about to cut it over Polly. It took about 20-30 minutes to get her out, but I did!

  11. My husband wears his hair long and in a ponytail. That's fine here in dry Denver. When we went to Galveston to visit family, his hair reacted to the humidity by fluffing up and actually popping his pony holder!

  12. My eldest daughter had long beautiful wavy hair when she was growing up. I would do a different hairstyle each day and most of them were pretty fancy. That is until the great lice outbreak in first grade. We didn't get lice but I had her hair in the tightest braid and would put in a homemade mixture of eucalyptus, Rosemary and something else oil dotted through her hair to ward off those evil bugs. We did this on and off for several years as the kids in her class never seemed to get rid of the lice problem.

  13. Hmmm... I wish I could entertain you with a funny hair story, but I really just don't have one. The closest I can come is a memory from childhood where my mother must have finally gotten sick of my forever tangling hair and my crying out that the brushing hurt. Yep, hair that was all the way down to my butt got cut off up to my neck that day. :-( It's still long and easy to tangle today - 40 years later.

    Here's a funny hair story for you - my older daughter used to hate getting her hair brushed, so at times it would get really snarled up. We used to tell her it had "rats nests" in it. Eventually that evolved into a bird's nest, which then turned into us just cawing like crows every time it got snarly. Now we can laugh about it, but it wasn't so funny back then. :)

  22. I am in the process of growing my hair long for the first time in over 15 years.

    ERGH! It is just at the point where I cannot put my bangs behind my ears and they hang down into my eyes. I have to keep them pulled back all the time with a bobby pin.

    I had also forgotten how hot long hair can be in the summer. Fall is here, so I made it through the heat.

    I am determined not to go back to short hair because I can do a lot of fun stuff when my hair is long - I just have to wait for my bangs to get out of my way!

    Thanks for the great giveaway. ~Pauline

  23. I remember camping with our church group and I came home with two ticks in my head. Now my dad, the supposed expert told my mom that they should just burn them out of my head which he proceeded to do to the first one with no problems, however, on the second one, the lighter started to get too hot and he started shaking..... yes I ended up with a ring of very fried hair!

  25. This may not be too funny, but it is so trur. My daughter is 4 and i cringe when i see her get on her bus to preschool with knots in her haor. she wont let me brush it and mornings at our house can be so hectic that there have beeen several times she has gone to school unbrushed. A product like this would be amazing. I wish they had this when I was a tot and my mother would bop my on the head with the hard plastic bristle brush of the 80's. I suppose i too was a bit resistent to having my hair done.

  26. I have very fine hair so I think these "ouchless" products would work great for my hair and help to have less hair loss. I also think this brush would be great for blowdryer styling which I do every day.

  47. A funny hair related story...well last year my then 5 yr old daughter had her hair in a ponytail, she couldn't get the scrunchie out of her hair so she took scissor and cut her entire ponytail off, and she had very long hair. I had no idea until a few minutes later when I went to the bathroom and seen this huge chunk of hair lying in the trashbin with the scrunchie still attached. I couldn't even believe it, when I found her and seen the back of her hair I couldn have cried. It was so bad and she had such pretty long hair. It wasn't funny at the time, but I guess its long enough ago I can get a chuckle out of it.

  50. Well, at 15 it wasn't funny, but I can chuckle about it now.
    Back in the good old days they had a new product called "Sun In" that I was dieing to try. I read the directions and went out to play in the sun. I loved my new blond streaks and was oh sooooooooooo happy!
    Everything was cool for a couple of days until I went to the local pool...you see in the small print that I had not read it said that chlorine could make the product turn green.
    It took a long time for those green streaks to grow out with my Mom saying "I told you so" for months! lol

  54. My funny hair story has to do with my mom. My sister in law died my mother's hair once and it came purple. I mean glaring bright purple. My father and us kids laughed so hard it was unreal. Every time my mother would walk by my dad, he would sing the Barney song. We thought it was hysterical. Good news, it was easily fixed in 2 days time, but til this day was still laugh about it, even my mom. SweepsGirl@aol.com

  57. I was getting ready for a date when I decided to go curl my hair before mt blind date got there. I used one of the brush curlers for the first time and my hair got stuck in it and started to burn the only way to get it out was my brother cut a chunk of my hair off just to prevent from burning anymore. I had a big chunk of hair missing and had a hard time covering it for the date.

  58. My daughter's hair tangles easily, just like mine. So we've been buying new brushes constantly and telling her this 'new special brush' won't hurt. It's been necessary to do this just so she'll stand still and let us attempt to brush her hair.

  59. My hair is really long and last week we were out and about on a windy day and I slammed some of my own hair in the car door. It ripped out (ouch!) and was just hanging there on the window! Funny, but painful!
