Denman brushes

PyjamaLlamaPyjamaLlama Posts: 72Registered Users
I've heard lots of really good things about these brushes, and I was wondering if anyone has tried them??
If you have tried them, are they good??
If you tried one, which one??
I have REALLY knotted hair that easily mats, and I need a brush that can really help with the tangles. My hair is 2a/2b, APL and I'm not sure on the porosity (it takes about 5 hours to fully dry from wet) by the way. Do you think it would help!?
Thank you :)

    I have a basic Denman brush in my shower; haven't used it in awhile since I felt like it broke up my curl pattern too much. Detangled well, but I don't have much issues with tangling and can use my fingers or wide tooth comb to detangle. Will have to try it again

    I have a knock off Denman brush that only cost me $1.49 and works just as well as the name brand. It works better for clumping my curls together. Plus u can remove some of the teeth if u feel like it's pulling your hair out. As with any styling tool, u have to use extreme care. Start by combing/detangling the ends slowly then work your way up to the roots.

    I use a denman to apply my leave in for curl definition. At this point I've already detangled my hair though. Occasionally I'll use it on dry hair after gently separating the curls with my fingers, I only do this when I need tangle free hair for an updo. The brush is very gentle, and really helps me with curl definition. If you're only needing the detangling, I can't really speak to how it behaves in very tangled hair.

    I love the denman brush for detangling & curl definition. But after my cut, I figured out I that with a good detangling conditioner I can use my fingers. I know of a detangling spray that I like. Kyle taught me a lot.

    My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.

    Thank you for all your replies :)
    I have a tangle teezer, but it just doesn't really detangle enough for me, it never quite gets to the tangles on my underlayer. Do you think that this would mean that the denman wouldn't work for me?
    Detangling in the shower with my fingers doesn't give me as nice waves as if I brush (I don't know why, I have tried lots of times but my waves are always limp afterwards)
    I've seen that there are lots of different types of denman brush, are there any specifically that you guys think would suit my hair?? And maybe help curl definition??

    The one I have is the d7. Have you ever tried clipping the top layer out of the way while you comb the tangled hair underneath?

    And after using my Denman brush in the shower, I remember why I quit using it: it gives me really, really stringy hair along the lines of angel hair pasta. I'm going to give it to my straight haired BF to use
