What comb or brush is best for fine hair?

Like Tree3Likes

I tried the Denman brush (D7 I think) based on a thread here. I have fine, med-low ( ???) porosity, medium thickness hair and I found pretty quickly that it was catching hairs between the plastic handle and the rubber base. It also wasn't really helping with clumping but that could be a technique thing. I then went looking for something like the Denman three-row comb which Sally's doesn't carry. They do have this version Tool Structure - Tool Structure 3 Row Stying Comb but the teeth were rough. After wandering around the store awhile I found this Fusion Group International - The Assistant Clip. It has 4or 5 rows of bendy teeth and is all one piece, so no pulling hair out. Also the rows of teeth or offset so it gets my hair super smooth. It's still not helping with clumping but that might be my hair type or (lack of) technique but it is amazing for detangling and working conditioner through. I don't have a ton of hair though, might not work for super-thick types. I imagine it would help with volume if used similarly to the Denman brush.

Hmmm that looks interesting. Do u use it as a clip too or just to comb?and don't worry, the clumping was just a theory of mine. I could be way off on that lol
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
My hair is BSL so I did use it to hold my hair up once conditioner was on so I could wash, etc without it all down my back. The clip is really strong, I actually just clipped it through then wrapped my hair a bit and pressed the length into the comb part, it stayed well, I only did it the once though. When my hair was longer I put it up every shower (wet) and started getting breakage so I'm afraid of doing it too often

I'm having a bad hair day today. I'm wondering if it was the brush. I'm gonna try my comb tomorrow and see
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity
I have fine hair & use a wide tooth comb when soaking wet. I rake my products in as well & then scrunch. I've not tried a brush of any kind since I went curly except if I've straightened. I've thought about the wide toothed plastic ones. Fine tooth combs cause more clumping for me & I don't have enough hair for that. I don't want it too stringy but I don't want giant clumps either.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

That's what I usually do too... Comb, rake and scrunch I went back to my comb today and my hair wasn't all stringy so I guess it was the comb... I'm also in a very humid environment too so I wonder if that helps or not... Hmm
