So, I know we all have seen the craze over Denman Brushes and how amazing they are. Around the time when I first went natural, I didn’t know what kind of tools to use that would be perfect for my hair. The combs I was using while I was relaxed would be a terrible choice for my hair.
At this point and time I was just getting into Youtube and watching a bunch of natural hair Youtubers. The Denman brush was literally all over the place and everyone was talking about how amazing it was as detangler and how good it was a defining your curls. So what do you think I did? I went out a purchased one, of course! Lol
Besides having a wide tooth comb, I would use the Denman brush to further detangle the parts that the wide tooth comb probably missed.
After using this brush for years, I started to actually realize something. When I would detangle it honestly felt like it was pulling on my hair. No matter how much I “detangled” , the brush would never just glide through. I did not understand why & eventually I just kind of stopped using it.
I had a used a tangle teaser a while back during this process and I loved it, but I honestly don’t remember why I stopped using it. Well, A few weeks ago, I decided to purchase another one and revisit it.
I love tangle teasers. When I use it to detangle, my hair is truly detangled and it literally just slides right through my hair. Every since I started using it again, i’ve decided to not use a Denman again.
I did revisit the Denman Brush because I wanted to compare and I decided that I wasn’t going to use it again.
Now, i’m not saying that the Denman brush sucks because I have seen it work wonders for many people. I just PERSONALLY don’t think that it is meant for my hair type. I’ve noticed that most of the people that I have seen use it, have a looser curl patter than me and their hair defines extremely easy. I don’t get the same results using the Denman Brush, HOWEVER, I do get those results when I use the tangle teaser.
I feel that this all comes down to your hair type and what you feel works better for your hair. I have seen this work for people who have kinky hair like me. So the results aren’t the same all around the board. The best thing to do is to try it out for yourself to see what truly works. BUT if you ask me for MY OPINION, then i’m going to say that I FEEL the tangle teaser is the best option.
