If I think back, I cannot remember the last time I purchased a new hairbrush, so I have no clue how old mine is! I was offered to try two Denman hair brushes and at first I was a little nervous as I thought, "How is it even possible to review a hair brush?" However, when I saw the collection, I couldn't resist trying the Large Hot Curling Brush and the Large Head Hugger Brush. I purchased the large as they were recommended for my hair length. In order to give the best review, I have outlined the positives and negatives, and what is good for my hair, might be bad for yours.
Hot Curling Brush - £11.22
The website says: "The Thermoceramic Hot Curl brushes feature flexible nylon bristles that provide optimum grip and control when straightening the hair or adding curl. The vented barrel allows warm air to circulate freely for high-speed blowdrying. The brush also features a riveted handle for extra strength and durability."
- It left my hair looking shiny and feeling smooth.
- The soft bristles didn't hurt my head at all (most brushes do).
- I found it didn't really speed up the blowdrying process
- The nylon bristles just made my hair frizzy.
I enjoyed trying it out, but honestly I don't think I will ever find a brush with nylon bristles that works well with my hair. 5/10
Head Hugger Brush £8.87
The website says: "Denmans' Head Hugger brushes feature ceramic-coated barrels to retain heat, enabling damage-free styling. The hourglass shaped barrel 'hugs' the contour of the head providing extra volume and root-lift. Featuring crimped bristle that is gentle on the scalp and provides enhanced grip and control. The brushes are finished off with a Luxury, velvet-touch handle that gives added comfort and control during use."
- When using it, it held onto my hair really well.
- The shape made it really easy to use.
- It gave my hair some extra volume, especially at the roots.
- Towards the end, it began to hurt my scalp a lot.
Love this brush! It did everything it said it would except the soft bit, but my head is a bit sensitive so I'm not going to complain. 9/10
The brushes are available on the Denman website (links to the actual brushes are above). Take a look at their other products too, they have a wide range to suit every need.
Have you tried Denman brushes before?
