My favorite Denman

Hello!
So I went to beauty brands the other day to buy a Denman and I couldn't remember which one you ladies suggested. I ended up buying this
And I am in love. It detangled quick and I used to distribute my leave-ins too! It was like $5 which was a little more than the other ones made just like this but the bristles were much shorter and I didn't think they would get through my massiveness of hair. Just thought I would share.

What a cute brush!

The D4 is what most of us use (some use the D3). As of last week, my new Denman brush love is the D83. It takes a much shorter time to detangle with the 83 than the 4. I've had the 83 for a couple of years, but I think my hair was too short to really benefit from it. Now at the longer length, my hair really appreciates this brush.

@curlydelta: I was curious about those types of brushes but I didn't think they could get through thick hair so I left them alone. I like the way the handle is 'cause I usually end up holding my denman practically at the base so your one would suit me better in that respect. For reference, how long does it usually take your hair to detangle w/other brushes/combs? TIA and thanks for posting about this brush.

@cheleigh: What about the D83 do you think makes it work better than the D4? TIA

One, because it's a paddle brush, it's larger and can accommodate larger sections when detangling. Also because it has a cushion and rounded balls it seems to have a bit more "give" through my hair. I hadn't done a comb/brush detangle or DT on my hair in four weeks, which is the worst case scenario for me and the detangling process. I got done faster and with less trauma with the D83 than would have been the case with the D4. The 83 just seemed more forgiving, and possibly a better fit for my hair now that it's longer.

the denman paddle brush pulled out my hair, more than just normal shed hair.

i use the denman d41, which is good for wet/damp detangling, as its bristles are spaced farther apart from each other than on the regular denman d4.

With this little brush it took me less than 5 minutes and I get scalp massage . But I don't have much length and I don't divide into many sections. I take one side then the other. HTH!

I brought this one from sally`s,I am not sure if i like it or not my hair is on the thin side so it feels like it is scraping my scalp when i brush. But it does detangle good,well about the same as my fingers or a wide tooth comb.
Thanks Cheleight and curlydelta!
