Denman Brush and Fine, Thin Hair

Does the Denman Brush work with fine, thin hair or is it better for thicker hair?

    My hair is fine but I have a lot of it, so this may not be much of a help, but I use the small Denman that has 5 rows. I have a short bob and I think it works better than the fake Denman I have that is bigger and has 7 rows. That one seemed to make my curls stringier. HTH!
    Began Mod CG 8/29/10
    Mostly 3a (I think) with some 2a & 2b thrown in for good measure, porous due to color, normal elasticity
    Loves ACV and maybe protein

    Low-poo: Giovanni TTTT
    CO-wash: V05 Kiwi Lime
    Condish: GF Triple Nutrition
    Leave-in: GF Sleek & Shine (HG??), LOOB, almond oil
    Gel: LA Looks Sport
    Straightening (I know, I know! I just like a change every once in a while!): FX Flat Iron spray, Jonathan Dirt

    Still experimenting with products, but generally, the cheaper the better!

    Me too. My hair is thin and fine, and I just ended up with a head full of strings when I used a denman. It totally ruined my curl definition.

    Anyone can use a Denman - there are loads of ways to use one. I have fine hair and I use a denman in two different ways.

    1. I use it before super-soaking in order to help distribute product. (see this thread: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/showthread.php?t=81176 ) The 'soaking' helps curls separated by the denman to reclump.

    2. I use it when I'm going for more volume (my hair is clumptastic and looks like telephone cords all over my head if I don't break up the clumps). I run it through my hair when semi-dry and then apply product to damp hair.
    3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.
