I want to recommend the big Mebco Shower Detangler comb (I bought mine at Sally's). I've been using it to detangle, then use my Denman to distribute product -- but when I was traveling, I did fine with just the comb alone. I'm some sort of a 2, but my hair is thick and long, and using the comb/Denman method has really been helpful for me.

You can't really see it in the picture, but the Mebco comb has two rows of widely spaced teeth that are sort of alternating, and it really helps me with detangling. It was only about $3.00 at Sally's. Here's a link to Amazon with a picture and reviews:
