My Denmans: My Third and Final Say...

I tried with this brush, I really did but it is just awful. I tried it on dry hair to smooth, bad idea. I tried it to detangle, bad idea. I tried it on moisturized or conditioned hair to smooth my hair, bad idea. This brush only pulls out my hair and breaks it. My Denmans will be committed to the trash.

For a few weeks after my second post on my Denmans I was using it to smooth my hair and I noticed my hair began to thin out which included my hair line. I will not even try to use this brush again, too bad I really wanted it to work. I use my wide tooth combs, styling combs, toothbrush and my boar brush to style and manage my hair, that's enough for me. I would love to hear your experience with your Denmans.

Which one did you use? I want to try the D14... the one with five rows. I heard that that would be best for my type 4 hair.

Did you try removing some of the rows of bristles? Maybe that could help...

It's a no-go for my short 4b coils, but glides through my daughter's waist length 3b hair. I have also give up on it.

I found this brush to thin out my hair as well due to the increased passings through the hair. My hair is naturally frizzy and using this to de-tangle is futile and against its pattern, no matter how many rows the brush does or doesn't have. My hair tangles right back up and presents even more frizz having been overly separated out of its curl patterns. I only use them to shingle, as if it were a fine tooth comb. I tried the Denman many years ago, and again last year. I talked junk about it here lol >> http://www.itsjusthair.com/2009/08/hair-epiphany-do-not-comb.html

THANK YOU! I thought I was the only one. That thing pulled my hair out and it was soaking wet and loaded with condish. I have 4b hair, with some 3c patches. Maybe it's for 3a's?

I have 4B/C and I can use it only under the shower stream and starting out with plenty of conditioner. Section by section first to detangle and then a pass through and it's smooth sailing. Without plenty or water and condish it would be useless to me too.

I suggest you try the jojoba oil brush sold at shoppers drugmart. I like it and think it is a Goody brush.

I used the brush that is picture which I think is the D3, I also have the 9 row Denman which I think is a D4, they don't work on my hair.

No I didn't, I spent alot of money on the brush so I feel it should work as it is.

@Nisus

I know what you mean. My hair gets super frizzy but my strands are fine so it is deceiving because people think I have thick hair. This brush is dangerous and the thing about it is that the breakage creeps up on you.

@Karama

Me and you are not the only ones, LOL!

@CurvyGurl

This brush is very particular, I mean a brush is a brush why can't it just do what most brushes do, smooth the hair and keep it manageable????

Nu Kynk said...

@Kadiane

I have been eyeing that brush, I'll see. Thanks!

Melinda said...

Thank y'all so much for your comments, as my intuition was telling me, I WILL NOT be purchasing this brush, it may work on more loosely coiled hair but not on mine. Teri from tightly curly can keep this one and if you notice on her website it takes a good deal of her hair out also.

Ok, not cool to hear because I just purchased this brush but I didn't use it yet...oh boy. I used something similar and I found it distributed the product better to my hair then rubbing it in and combing it with a widetooth comb (I have type 4 hair)...anyway, that brush looks the same but has the little balls on the tips and some came off in my hair and the brush handle broke so I thought I'd get this one since other naturals swear by it. I guess I'll find out next time I do my hair.

It's Bcose u used the D3 or the D4 which by the way are for STRAIGHT hair! I tried the D3 on my hair (3c/4a: a nightnare! But when I went to shop the shop assisstant told me that I tried the wrong one. U must try the D31 or D41 made for curly/coily/coarse hair! There's less row ( 5instead of7)and the gaps between the teeth are wider.
