When blowdrying straight, what sort of brush is least damaging?

I just recently got my shiny, brand-new T3 Evolution hairdryer and it works MIRACLES with the diffuser on. Not heat damage, everything smooth and silky (not burnt and straw-like like every other hairdryer I've tried, ewr). If I wanted to try straightening my hair with it, what brush would I get? As a curly girl, I'm naturally suspicious of all brushes but there doesn't seem to be any way around it. Advice would be appreciated greatly :)

    I have luck with a paddle brush. Then again Im a wavy so it straightens fairly easily. If you need more tension Ide prob stick with boar bristles. They are natural and help to slick down the cuticle later of the hair.

    This is the best blowout brush period. I use only Marilyn brushes as a stylist for ten years.
