Kinky coils tend to break or split when you run a brush through them. You know you need to get through the tangles, but it can be a challenge when almost any brush results in puffball frizz.

In fact, if you’re a kinky, you’re probably in the habit of finger-combing your hair and avoiding the brush altogether. Thanks to Denman brushes, however,  you can rest your fingers and pick up a brush again, confident that this brush was made with your hair in mind!

What’s So Great About Them?

Some of our CurlTalk users say that with most brushes, they end up with a poofy mess. For this reason, they’ve sworn off brushes completely. If they do have one that they can trust, it can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes to get through their coils.

With a Denman brush, however, CurlTalkers brag that styling time has gone down to as little as 20 minutes for type 4 hair, and that the brushes leave hair with clearly defined curls, a shiny luster – partly due to the brush’s distributing abilities – and no tangles! The bottom line is that these brushes are amazing for type 4s, and we’re not just reading that on the package label; we’re hearing it from coily ladies who have bought and used one!

Additionally, type 4s tend to experience a lot of shedding. Denman brushes are excellent at getting all of that shedding OUT of your hair.

Varieties

If you’re thinking about buying a Denman, you might be overwhelmed when you see the varieties available in your local beauty supply store. We’ve done the homework for you on the styling brushes and can explain the different types and why you’d choose one over another.

  • The Classic styles are the most commonly used brushes for styling. Bristles are nylon and are set in a “pin” style, which means they have some space between them. The bristles sit on a half-rubber shaped pad, which is great for smoothing the hair. This style comes in small, medium, large, and heavyweight.
  • The Freeflow Volumizing brush is very similar to the classic brushes, only they are skinnier and much lighter. Also, the nylon pins are more spread out than in the Classic brushes.
  • The Freeflow Vent brushes are similar to the Volumizing brushes, except they do not contain rubber padding. Instead, the area underneath the pins is hollow, allowing heat to flow through if you need a quick dry or are diffusing.

The rest of the Denman brushes include the Thermoceramic, Bristle Radial, and the Squargonimic brushes. For specific styling, they also have the Headhugger Hot Curl, Grooming, and Curling brushes, as well as large paddle brushes. However, these brushes probably won’t work well for type 4s as they are likely to cause frizz in coily hair.

Cost

As with anything, you have to pay for quality. The Deman styling brushes are a bit more expensive than generic brushes, ranging in price from about $13 to $19. However, CurlTalkers swear that the investment is well worth it. In addition to being amazing for kinks, these brushes reportedly last a long time.
