My Denman D3 brush came today :-D. I used it on my hair and it doesn't seem to be anything special. And it wasn't all that easy to brush through with, either. But I remain hopeful. Does anybody have any tips or things to say about it? I know some curlies use it to define curls, but it doesn't seem to have that effect for me. What am I doing wrong?

ALSO, what hair type do you think I am? Sorry if that's annoying, but I would just like to know :-)

BSL stretched (longest it's ever been and growing rapidly!), past shoulder curly. Hair goal is hip length.

3a-b/f-m/ii. Soft and silky texture and prone to tangles. Can't get second day hair, even if I kissed the feet of fairy's
