Couldn't you just add some jojoba oil to your hair, then brush? I looked for this brush too, but haven't found one yet.. but then I only looked in one drug store.

This sounds like a really good brush, I may try it in the future. But for now I think I am going to stick to my Denman brush since I recently figured out how to use it, I have really been having good hair days lately. My curls clump together so nicely I am not ready to change just yet, but I am very happy that you found a brush that you love.

I'm jealous. I can only use a reallly wide tooth comb to detangle (I loose way too many hairs when the little thingys are so close together/numerous).

I bought this brush one weekend when I was visiting New Orleans and had left my denman in Baton Rouge.

I like it just as much as my denman... and actually it seemed to glide though my hair better than the denman and I experienced less pulling. Probably because the plastic bristles are spaced further apart and are more flexible than the denman. However I wonder if the goody doesn't detangle as well since there are fewer bristles.

I got mine from walmart. I didn't take the time to read that it has to be replaced every 6-9 months - I just ripped it out of the packaging and went to town lol...

I didn't notice that it added any extra shine - I just like how it moved though my hair. I'm thinking that the movement has more to do with the bristle spacing and flexibility and not the jojoba oil - so I probably won't repace it that often....

Hmmm....thanks natashamck...I'll probably just wait this one out too. It's good that so many people who wouldn't use a brush otherwise are finding something that works so well.

That is what I was thinking. The jojoba oil thing seemed a little suspicious to me, but with all the rave reviews I thought maybe that really is the difference. I am glad to see your review because I was thinking about buying one, but I did not want to buy it if I would have to replace it every few months.

I could never find a Denman brush in KC and I didn't want to order one online so thank you, Ms. Kitty, for spreading the word about this. I used it today (on dry hair) and this is the first time I can actually get a brush through my hair without pulling.

I got a coupon for this last year. It was when they were launching a whole new range of brushes; I think they had a copper one to help with dandruff, too.

It seemed interesting and I'm liking the reports that it has even more flexibility in the bristles than the Denman. I might try it one day (too bad I didn't use that coupon before it expired )

The thing is, one of the main reasons I love my Denman is that it detangles so well. The D4, that is. I've tried two other Denmans (I think one was the D30 or something, like a smaller version of the D3, IIRC) and I definitely missed the extra rows, as far as detangling is concerned.

Wow! really interesting that so many of you can actually use a brush. I can't (or maybe I haven't had the right types).
I normally don't use anything but if I do need to detangle it would be with a wide tooth detangling comb http://www.goody.com/Products/Stylin...etangling.aspx.

The last time I attempted to use a brush, It took me like 5-10minutes to separate the brush from my hair. (very scary)

I am thinking of buying this brush. Is it really great? Because I think the denman brush is too hard on my hair. I appreciate your replies in advance.

I want to try this...I like the Denman but it just seems like I loose too much hair with it. Which is the best for detangling wet hair in the shower? The paddle, oval, or styler?

I really like this brush for detangling. I only use it on my wet hair. It seemed to just glide through without snagging or pulling. I'm definitely impressed.

I actually bought this brush after I saw one of Empressri's video's on youtube (I found mine at walmart-the paddle one) and I have to agree with MsKitty. With the Denman I felt like I was losing more hair than just the usual shedding, and with this brush I've noticed a HUGE difference...I'm talking just a few strands in the brush when I'm done.

The bristles feel really good in my head...feels like a little scalp massage very nice!!!! and it detangles wonderfully. I haven't noticed any added shine, however I usually have other products in my hair while I'm detangling.

This brush is fantastic, and ur right MsKitty, I haven't touched my Denman since I bought this brush

This brush is the truth lol. It really did just glide through my hair and my curls are hanging really well. They also seem to have shrunk less than with the Denman. My hair looks shinier today. I don't know if it's the jojoba oil or if I just went heavy handed on the gel today. I picked it up last night on sale at Longs for $5 and some change. I may get another one just to have on hand.

I got this brush back in early may as part of a gift pack.
I used it and loooooooooved it.
But it only lasted me a month or so. The bristles started breaking and i had to throw it away.

I'm actually considering getting another one right now after reading this thread, because the brush was so gentle on my hair... (The denman really does feel like it's pulling out more hair than usual)

but this brush goes through my hair really well when wet...
i'd def recommend it, but if you have thick hair, expect to replace it a lot sooner...

I bought this brush recently, and I have def. noticed the results. The curls are much more separated compared to detangling with a wide-toothed comb, and it does not pull. I can even brush it dry, which I would not recommend, but it is still possible. Give it a try!
