Maybe your hair doesn't like the fine toothed comb, and would work better with a brush. I absolutely love my Denman brush. I have read about people using a comb with great results, but I have also read that some people can't do the comb (their hair doesn't clump as well) and give the curl definition they like. So don't give up, keep experimenting!
