denman are brushes i have always used. as a kid i was a chronic thumb sucker which meant every morning i would wake up with a massive birds nest on the top of my head. the joys of twiddling and twisting my hair at night whilst sucking my thumb! the only thing that could remove said birds nest was a denman large paddle brush and i’ve had one ever since. i also have a dressing out brush to style and backcomb my hair to give me some much needed and desired volume
one brush i have never tried though is the metal pin paddle brush. instead of the large paddle brush that has ball-ended nylon pins the metal pin brush funnily enough has mental pins! fancy that :P the metal pins are extra smooth and very durable meaning this brush is perfect for use with hair extensions and wigs. now i don’t have either so was interested to see how this brush would fair up with my long, slightly knotty hair
one thing i found with this brush compared to my old large paddle brush is how soft it is. when i am sans knots this brush glides through my hair leaving it feeling very soft. don’t get me wrong this does still brush out any knots you may have but as with all knotty hair its a bit of a fight. i find if i brush through my hair first with my tangle teaser and then brush through with this metal pin brush my hair is soft, unmatted and happy!
this brush can be found from the denman website here for £10.18
