Well I almost got sucked into an expensive hair brush vortex, but fortunately the wonderful MUA reviewers reminded me to check out Denman. I had the styling brush back in the 70's and it was great for years. Lately I've just been wanting to brush my old grey mane and tickle my scalp a little. My Spornett is just too scratchy. This is perfect and just a beautiful brush. I'm happy that I did not blow my entire state tax return on the posh version. This will do just fine. Do check these out first, before you get spendy, if it matters.

Occasionally I consider investing in a good brush but for whatever reason I hadn’t done so. Partly because I had Mason Pearson in mind and while I’m sure it would be worth the investment, the thought of parting with 150 bucks never appeals to me. Particularly if I’ve got something that essentially does the same job just not as well. The other day I had to toss my Wet brush, which is excellent, and I thought, you know...lemme try and get a better brush. I’m familiar with Denman and I know that they make an excellent quality brush at a lower price point than MP.So I purchased the small grooming brush for $34 and let me tell you I am shocked at the difference it makes. I had read enough reviews here to prompt me to buy the brush, but I’m also aware of the fact that a good products doesn’t always mean it’s a game changer. This definitely is. For one thing, it feels so good to brush my hair with this. I honestly think that this brush makes a difference in overall scalp and hair health. One of the reasons I was considering it was that my hair has been oily at the roots and dry at the end, which, needless to say, I don’t like. I know this type of brush is good for distributing the scalp oils through the length of the hair shaft, and I absolutely see and feel a marked difference in just the last few days since I purchased and started using this. And while it’s more than I normally spend on a brush, it’s really not a bank-breaker. Particularly since it will probably last forever.

My hair is fine and breaks easily so brushing with this keeps it from breaking off as much. Definitely recommended for anyone with hair that breaks easily!

I just really love Denman brushes. Also have a styling brush, which I've been using for 10 years now, so when I was in the UK a few weeks ago I decided to buy a grooming brush as well. I have a boar & nylon mixed brush inMedium (D81M), which is perfect for me as I have very long & thick hair. It smoothes my hair, it redistributes the natural oils to the ends, it even keeps me from having to wash my hair for an extra day or so. It's just love, love, LOVE!!! EDIT: I have bought an extra, the small one (D81S) for in my bag. That's how much I love it!

EDIT...Update :Denman D81 Grooming brush Review :I absolutely loved this brush. Brushing my hair isnt a painful task anymore !!! yayy ! I've been using plastic hair brush my entire life so you can imgaine how this has taken me by surprise.Also this made my hair a lot more healthy, less frizzy over the days. It distributes natural oils of the hair root to tip - so my hair looks a lot more healthyThis is a mixed nylon-boar bristle brush. The nylon bristle helps penetrate the hair, while the boar bristles tame my hair. I am told this is the best brush if you have thick, coarse hair. Boar bristles alone cant penetrate well if you have thick hair.It is great for heat styling. I kinda run my little test- One side I blowdryed using my nylon bristle round brush and the opposite side I blow dryed using denman brush.On the side I used nylon bristle one - good volume, a bit frizzy, a bit coarser to touch. Looked dry too.On the side I used my denman - no volume (not a round brush,so), smooth to touch and super sleek !!I am falling in love with all of these brushes :D-----------------------------------------------------------------------------I own one denman and I put an order for other one , I wanted to review both of these at once but I cant contain my excitement lol. I am soo impressed by the one I used so far. The denman grooming brush that I used was :Denman D91 Dressing Out Brush :I am looking for a good quality teasing brush and we dont have sallys beauty supply in India so I was looking for boar bristle teasing brush. When I found this at local store it seemed identical- it essentially had the same design - three rows but 'Nylon' bristles. I couldn't seemed find a boar bristle brush so I ended up getting this. Plus it looked pretty in the purple color. So i got this for $4.99.For Teasing - excellent,period. I mean I used to tease with my ordinary rat tail comb and I lose volume after 1 hour but with this one , the volume stayed out the entire evening. For Taming Baby hair and flyaways - This part of it just blew me away. I have a lot of baby hairs - a lot of them really. I used the hairspray + toothbrush thing but that just felt icky and my scalp became oily very soon :( This brush is awesome for taming the flyaways. I didnt even need hairspray. I just smooth out my baby hairs with this brush and they stay put. Without hairspray, it helps taming my baby hair for like a couple of hours. I think it would probably hold much longer if I used a hair spray. I am so impressed with the quality that I ordered another brush from the same lime . Denman D81. I'll post a review as soon as it arrives.

My hair gets tangled easily because I am trying to grow it out. It is the longest it has ever been! My Rusk paddle brush was just pulling out my hair and the knots and I ended up losing more hair than I was growing it. I heard that boar bristle hair brushes are the best for hair and the ones with nylons quills are the best for my hair type (thick, wavy and frizzy). I was trying to debate on whether to fork out $200 for a Mason Pearson or $20 for a Denman. I ended up picking the Denman and figured if I liked it enough, I could get a Mason Pearson later on. This brush was only $20 at Peninsula Beauty. The only size they had was the medium which is good for my hair but I think the large size would have had a bigger handle, which is what I originally wanted. This brush is great! It made my hair very static-y at first but now it seems to have gotten used to it. It detangles my hair very easily and I feel like I can actually groom my hair now. This Denman brush is only for grooming and not really styling but I don't really style my hair anyways so it works for me. The boar bristles are supposed to help distribute the natural oils in your hair to the ends and help promote shine. I have noticed my hair does seem to look healthier but I really just love how easily this brush glides through my hair especially when it's tangled! A very good and cheaper alternative for a Mason Pearson!

I got this hoping to dupe the $150 Mason Pearson, and while this is also not super cheap at $19 or so, it's certainly more in my price range.I have long, fine hair, and lots of it, and while it's straight it has a tendency to wave a little and get VERY frizzy, especially in the summer. This brush does what countless anti-frizz serums have failed to do for me, and that is to take all that frizz down. I haven't been using it for long enough to say whether the natural bristles take the oil through, making the scalp less oily and the ends more moisturized, as is the claim, but I really like the effect it has on my hair. I don't own a straightener but the results are similar to when I've had it straightened.I would imagine that if your hair is super curly and thick the brush wouldn't be able to get through it (the bristles are short and not as rigid as the plastic in a paddle brush), but for any other hair type I'd give it a try. :)

I just found my old Denman brush in the basement! My last cheaper brush fell in the toilet and I threw it out (ewww). I was all set to buy a new brush and was looking at reviews. By some miracle I was doing some cleaning and found my Denman brush which I think I've had for around 18 years! It looked brand new! I must have been washing it years ago and left it. This is a great brush! It is the perfect weight. Mine is the plastic one that just looks like a typical drugstore paddle brush but is so much more! I spent $20 on it originally and looks like I won't have to buy one after all!
