Denman Brushes are described as freeflow styling brushes also used for detangling. They are depicted as brushes that can be used with all lengths, shapes and textures of hair and great for detangling thick hair.
While a lot of coilies find this brush very helpful during their detangling routine (gets the job done quicker, removes frizzes, defines curls..etc), in my humble opinion, I think fine-haired sisters like myself need to use caution when brushes are concerned. Fist of all, when brushes are used, they must be used ONLY when the hair is wet. In my personal experience, my wet hair and denman brush or any brush equals breakage.My hair is just too thin for the brush. Honestly, my fingers alone detangle my hair very well, that's how fine my hair is. But I still use very wide teeth detangling combs.
The combination of my fingers and the wide teeth comb produce wonderful results.
During the past summer, I watched some videos on YouTube(people's personal wash routine) and just because they have long hair and were using denman brush, I decided to try it too, hoping that my hair would experience the best detangling technique ever. I was also washing my hair twice a week because I read a book that suggested it. The combo of over washing my hair and using the denman Brush twice a week on my wet hair, plus damaged colored ends was equal
to shedding, breakage, loss of length and my now short hair.
Just because it works for one coily does not mean it might work for you
if your hair is thin, why are you using a Denman Brush, your hair is too thin for brushes
