Dumb Demnan brush question

If we are not supposed to dry brush our curls.. what specifically is the denman brush used for? Smoothing when putting in a bun/ponytail?  I thought this type of brush has very  short,dense bristles.. isn't this the opposite of what we want to do to our curls???

For some naturals it detangles and clumps your hair together, but for me it caused frizz and ripes out my hair. It all depends on what your hair can handle. 
I'm type 4 and I've used my denman for brushing styling products thru my hair when doing the shingling technique. I don't use it when my hair is dry but my denman really shrinks my hair because it makes my 4a curls very tight.
