so i'm a hairstylist that LOVES his tools and gadgets. seriously, i want to try everything! i'm also a stylist that believes in only using the best tools. best DOES not mean the most expensive. after cosmetology school, i moved on to a big fancy salon apprenticeship, and they required us to buy a $200 blow dryer and a bunch of different round brushes which were ~$40 a piece, then finally, a Mason Pearson Brush, which if you know about them they are $170 ... we also sold all these brushes and tools, and the idea behind it was that the clients need to know how expensive these items are and they will equate them with being the best. also, they can buy them so they can *think* they could get a blowout/style as good as when we did them.bottom line, you can do anything with any kind of brush if you know what you're doing. that being said, i love the Denman Grooming Brush. i've used many, many smoothing type brushes that look like it from the Mason Pearson to $60 variants (there's a Japanese brand called Y.S. Park known for having THE best tools in the industry) to the Sonia Kashuk and the Denman Grooming brush works just as good if not better than others. actually, better than all of the ones i just listed. i had a Mason Pearson and my biggest gripe was that you couldn't use it to blow out hair straight, bc the brush wasn't resistant to the heat of my blow dryer. it basically melted into this sad warped piece of crap ... enter the Denman Grooming Brush. not only can the Denman withstand the heat, but it also has more boar bristles surrounding the nylon pins, thus giving you more smoothing ability. the more bristles the hair has to go through, the more stretch you can get out of the hair thus getting a smoother, frizzless blowout. the other thing is that the nylon pins on my Denman are a bit longer so you get better "grip" as you're brushing.that being said, get this ... my Denman costs me less than $20 on folica.comi've gone through 2 Denmans in maybe 5 years as a hairstylist. i killed my Mason Pearson in the first 5 months. let's do a cost analysis here ... so there you go, a hairstylists view of the Denman Grooming Brush. continued >>

Yes I would buy this brush again but I doubt I'll have to! Hunted high and low for a replacement brush for a much loved Spornette. I flirted briefly with trying to buy a Mason Pearson...but I could not justify spending that much on a hairbrush I'd be leaving in the bathroom. I read on line about comparable brushes and found a writeup of the Denman line. This is a quality brush that features the same mix of boar and nylon bristles to penetrate. It has a black plastic handle and an orange rubber cushion, both of which are water, heat and chemical resistant. The D81L penetrates my thick, somewhat coarse color treated shoulder length hair with ease! My hair and scalp feel great after a good brush out. You can find these at beauty supply stores or online...and after my search and while I was waiting for it to be delivered, I happened be having my hair done and my own local hair salon had a basket full!
