Default i have found the secret to clumping!

okay, i have found the secret to great clumps! you're gonna think i'm crazy, but just trust me on this one! okay, the secret is...


brushing when it's wet.


you're probably thinking i've gone off my rocker, but it's true! when i first did it yesterday, i literally couldn't believe what i saw. when i woke up the nexr morning, soft clumpu ringlets! yes, there was some frizz, but i blame that on the way i tossed and turned in my sleep. so, try it out. see what you think of it.

Someone wrote about this before (PixieCurl, I think) with her Denman brush.

I go through phases of wet-brushing everything with my denman, then not at all. It seems to really help the clumping initially, but sort of wears off??? Anyway, I usually do brush conditioner, but alternate brushing leave-in, styling stuff, etc. followed by scrunching, or just light finger-raking, then scrunch.

I have no idea what a Denman brush is, but I'm off to go find out . . .

Yeah, this does work, I do it all the time. It does pull out some of the curls though. The trick to it is to not brush too close to your scalp or else I end up with a poofy top part of my hair. Also, brush upside down, then scrunch to help bounce the curls back up a little. Then diffuse using the Pixiecurl method

This thread made me want to brush away today (all of it--cond, leavein,rr &cc w/seakelp), and the hair is a-clumping, although a little frizzed w/the sudden high humidity this morning.... I did diffuse, though...

I have to admit I have been down this road before and I have the pictures to prove it. BRUSHING IS BAD for my hair type. I am a 3C. It took my hair at least 2 washes before it was back to normal. My advice proceed with caution, but you know what, you won't know unless you try.

My denman is part of my routine all the time now, I brush my conditioner and products through and then scrunch upsidedown and I get my best clumps ever.

I'm intrigued... maybe I should give this a try. Hell, if mag sulfate, honey, ACV & molasses can be in my bathroom, so can a brush.

So what type of brush is everyone using? Just looked up Denman & they have a bunch of different ones. I'm assuming no one is using the bristle kind. The vent? The rubber pad one? anyone have pics of their brush?

Thanks!

I use the denman D3 classic. I has a rubber pad and plastic bristles.
If you do get this one be sure to pull it apart and dry it after use otherwise the rubber rots, it should be talced once in a while too.

I don't think this work would for my 3b hair, but maybe I'll try one weekend when I'm feeling adventerous and don't have anywhere special to be.

I've done this before too. I have pics in my album (curly journey 2006). You can see my results there. I thought my hair looked good. I haven't brushed in a while though.

It was me laurabeth

I always wetbrush with my Denman D4, every time I wet my hair, while it's full of conditioner. It helps detangle and it feels really good. After I rinse, I often brush through my leave-in (upside down) and I don't find it pulls out curl at all.
