questions a la subbrock

okay first question:

how do you clean out your denman brush? i just bought one and so of course when i brushed my hair, all of my hair shed into the brush and now i cant get it out (im a nail biter so i have no fingernails to help me). please help me, hair stuck in brushes and combs makes me want to vomit.


next question:

what the hell hair type am i??? from far away, i think i look like a 3c, but i only have actually curls at the nape of my neck the top part is just wavy. whats up with that? am i a 4 or am i still some type of 3 or is my canopy a 2 or what?? i added 3 more pics to my album so you can see my texture. please help because im officially confused. again.


love,
your friendly neighborhood subbrock
I don't use a denman, so I'll just answer your second question. I think that you are a combination 3b/c. I have weird hair that waves more than it corkscrews, but I know that I'm majority 3c. Don't read too much into it. Your hair is gorgeous, either way.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

With the brush, I used to wet it and use the long end of a rat tail comb to get the hair, because Im a nail biter also. I agree with shygirl about the hair type, looks like a combo of 3b/c. I also loveeee your hair, but I told you that before. And the fact that your routine helped me discover mine, which is working fantastic if I may add

Your hair looks really different in each picture! In the one where you look like you have an afro, it seems more 4a. In the braided ones and the high ponytail, it looks more 3b or 3b/c. In the rest, I'd say 3c. So probably you are a combination, like most of us.

As to cleaning brushes, I usually pull out as much hair as I can with my fingers and then get the rest with a sharp object - the end of a rat tail comb is perfect. I put a little soap or shampoo on the brush and it helps loosen the hair that gets stuck to the cushion. That's one thing with Denmans - the teeth are so close together a lot of hair does get stuck. One more thing I love about paddle brushes is that you lose less hair and it's easier to get out.

Hi Subbrock!

I don't know about the brush, but I relate to your confusion about your hair type! In my sections that are more wavy/straight than curly, sometimes I get confused and think, Is it a 4? Is it 3a? Or 2!?? But if you look really close, at my hair anyway, what looks straight from a distance actually has some crinkles and bends in it, even though it hangs straight down. So I guess that couldn't be 2 or even 3a?? It's weird how hair can look straight but afro-like at the same time. So I figure that those sections are just undefined 3b waves/curls or just, I don't know, hair! At any rate, your hair looks good, really healthy and shiny. Also, I think I posted this on your Fotki, but when my hair was your length, it was more curly and less wavy. Have you ever had it long and natural before? The texture might really start surprising you!

My hair album does not really show the full texture of my hair, because I too have some sections that hang and from far away look straighter or wavier, but up close they have lots of ripples and kinks you can't even capture on a camera, especially at my roots. I figure it's just part of having a mixed hair texture and type.

Now I have a question for Subbrock I used veg. glycerine for styling, however I ran out of the kind I used previously. I bought the NOW veg. glycerin at the health food store. But when I applied it, it seems more oily than the other one. Have you used a different veg. glycerin before? And if so, was it less oily than this one. Or maybe I put a little more in, I dont know. Also do you measure the amount of each product you mix together?

Thanks Subbrock. I do believe for some reason, that NOW is more oily than the other one. I just need to learn to get the right amount. However its weird, it really seems like I used the same amt. with the other brand, but my hair is shinier and feels more moisturized. I just wonder how big of difference could it be from companies, since both are supposed to be 100% pure veg. glycerin?
