or, use a leather thong. Or, use a hair brooch - it is a curved piece of metal or leather with a stick or prong that goes through it to hold you hair in place.
Brushing your curly wet hair with a Denman won't hurt you. please watch the SuperSoaker video Super-Soaker Method for Promoting Clumps -UPDATED/Video Link

Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein
Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
