I have a Denman hair brush and know the products are of really good quality, so I have also had the comb for ages and is one of those long lasting products I don't really even remember how I got it!
The comb is a rather large, black plastic co b with the letter D engraved on it so you know exactly which brand it is! Its a thick comb, which make it easy to hold and use and is so durable it is one of the few combs that has stayed with me and never snapped when tortured from root to end of my hair (and hair extensions haha!).
The comb is a wide toothed comb so I don't tend to use it for parting as it is pretty inefficient at this, but it is able to glide tho this my hair without pulling and when in a hurry a quick whizz over with this comb is really effective to make my mane look decent in the nick of time. It is meant to be anti-stactic and if I wake up with some static bed hair this comb is really good at making it less frizzy, more sleek so I give this comb credit where it's due!
The comb is really unisex, as I use it, aswell as my other half, and it is brilliant on different hair textures, as my little one is of mixed heritage and it can battle through her hair just as effectively. To be honest I can't really fault this on any aspect, especially as a comb it does all I would expect it to!
This comb can be bought from Boots for £3.19 which if I am honest I do think is rather expensive and not a price I could see myself paying, so I am not too sure how it ended up in my house! It is probably one of those items where having girls over on a night out to get ready, got left behind and is now all mine!
Overall I really like this comb and would recommend it. Works a charm on all the hair in our household so it gets 5 stars!
When I was young my mom always made me have my hair cut short. She told me that, once I was old enough to look after it properly, I could grow it. She was also fearful that I would catch nits if I had long hair, bless her! Sadly since I was a chubby child and wore round National Health glasses the short hair made the similarity with Bessie Bunter complete!
Anyway, over the years I have switched between long and short hair styles depending on how I feel at the time and one the main stays of my grooming kit for many years has been the Denman Professional Comb which currently costs £3.19 from Boots. Heaven knows how much I paid for mine - it is too long ago for me to remember!
The comb is made from plastic and has smooth round ended teeth which are set fairly wide apart so they will not pull or damage the hair. The handle is large and fits nicely into the palm of my hand which makes using the comb comfortable and easy. The comb itself is strong and, unlike thinner combs, it doesn't loose teeth with wear.
I find that this comb is ideal when I have just washed my hair and I need to just smooth it out before I begin to blow dry it. It is also very useful when I have been out in the wind and my hair looks like an explosion in a mattress factory! The wide teeth make it easy to get my hair back into place without having to pull and tug at it. Obviously it also gets used on a regular basis for a quick comb through but it really comes into its own when the going gets tough so to speak.
The comb is very easy to keep clean too. I just wash mine in warm water with some soap and then give it a good rinse and it looks as good as new. In fact, as I said earlier, I have had my comb for years now and it still looks as good as the day that I bought it and you can't say that about many things these days can you?
In conclusion I would definitely recommend this comb whether your hair is short or long. It is a good price, well made and does the job!
I'm a big fan of the Denman tangle teezer and tangle tamer brushes so when I saw that there was a comb available too, I decided to get one as I have been very happy with the quality of my Denman brushes. I bought my comb from Amazon, however it is also available from a reasonably wide range of shops including John Lewis and Boots.
I paid £3.95 for this comb and depending on where you buy it from, the price ranges from £3 to around the £5 mark. Considering how effective and durable the comb is, I think this is a complete bargain and I am actually suprised at how good quality it is considering that it was so cheap and I will certainly be ordering another one. The comb, like all Denman brushes is well designed - Denman brushes are professional, salon quality brushes which are 'designed for both the professional hairdresser and the client alike'. This is a wide tooth grooming comb with 24 wide set, thick teeth. The comb is anti-static and heat and chemical resistant, and it's obviously waterproof too as it's made of plastic. The comb comes with a cardboard sleeve around it which has all the information a consumer would need on it, and this is easy to remove and recyclable.
As far as I know, the comb is only available in one colour - black with a matte finish, so it's definitely a unisex comb. I think that the comb looks really sleek and although it's simply designed, it looks and feels good quality. The comb is branded - the words 'Denman Professional' are written in black, slightly raised writing on one side of the comb right next to the teeth and the letter 'D' is written on the handle. The comb has a long, thick handle which is easy to grip, and a long row of sturdy, good sized 'teeth'. The brush is lightweight and much less bulkier than a run of the mill hair brush, but it's just as strong and efficient. It is made of durable plastic which although sturdy, it has an almost rubbery feel to it so it's very comfortable to hold and as the teeth are so strong, the comb is able to easily get through my thick, long hair without the 'teeth' bending or breaking off when they hit a knot, which is what happened to the comb that I had before this!
I usually use this comb when I'm in the bath as I like to comb my hair through with conditioner and as this is waterproof and chemical resistant (although hopefully my conditioner isn't full of too many chemicals!), it's ideal. It distributes the conditioner evenly as the teeth are all equal in size as well as being the same width apart. The long teeth also ensure that all of my hair is combed thoroughly rather than just the first couple of layers which is good as I have very thick hair and this glides through my hair effortlessy - I don't need to apply any pressure to it at all. I also use this comb for straightening my hair as I can seperate my hair off in sections then brush it out with the comb into even sized lengths and straighten each layer properly if that makes sense; as you can probably tell I am no hair care expert! As the teeth are long, when I'm brushing my hair thoroughly I can feel them against my scalp, but as they have rounded ends this isn't painful, unlike my other comb which had needle-like teeth which scratched my scalp.
This comb definitely lives up to the claim that it is anti static. With all of my other brushes, including my other two Denman brushes, my hair starts to go a little static if I brush it more than a couple of times while straightening it as it's so long and thick, where as this brush leaves my hair smooth and frizz free. The comb is handy for styling my hair too, whether it be simply brushing it back into a pony tail, or making my hair really big and OTT for a night out by backcombing it. The comb is strong and durable enough to comb through my hair in the morning too when it's at its worse, and I usually use this when I have especially nasty knots as it detangles so effeciently, although unlike the tangle teezer and tamer, this isn't pain free when detangling! It has never pulled strands of hair out though and it's noticeably gentle compared to brushes and combs that I have used in the past. My hair always feels lighter and smoother once I've brushed it through with this and I really can not fault it.
Overall, I highly reccommend this comb. It's strong and durable as well as lightweight and it's compact enough to fit in either my handbag or clutch bag. It's also incredibly good value for money and I give it five out of five stars.
I bought this Denman comb a few years ago when I needed something that would get through my hair but was less bulky than a full brush to carry in a slim bag. I love the Denman make but they are not a cheap brand and was pleased to find this at what I feel is a good price. At the time of writing it can be found for around £2.69 (price taken from Boots website).
These specifications were taken from a professional hair dressing supply site (as I've long since lost the packaging the comb came in), which I assume means it is indeed used by professionals, at least some of the time, as is stated in the advertising.
* Strong and durable
* Heat resistant
* Chemical resistant
* Light and flexible
* Gentle on the hair and scalp
* Professionally made for professional results.
The comb is made from one piece of plastic and the handle is large and ergonomically shaped, it seems to be perfectly weighted to nestle in the hand without causing strain. I often have problems with combs flipping and twisting in my hand when it hits a knot and I've never had that problem with this Denman comb.
I can't vouch for how this comb handles heat and chemicals as I don't use it with any heated styling aids. I also don't use many chemicals on my hair, but it seems to cope well with the rare splosh of colour product, conditioners etc. A part of one claim it makes I would totally disagree with 'light and flexible', while it is very light it is not really flexible. It's pretty rigid in construction; the only 'give' at all is in the handle from side to side and then only a tiny bit, and only with a lot of pressure. This very subtle flexibility is not a problem and seems to work far better than comes that are too 'bend'. So it is a positive rather than a negative. Perhaps I've read it wrong and they mean flexible as in it can be used for many different purposes.
I hadn't noticed on my packaging that it said that it was anti-static, but I have noticed that my hair appears smoother and less frizzy when I use this comb or my Denman brush. Which I presume is down to the reduction in static.
The teeth are quite long, and smooth with a rounded tip which doesn't scratch the skin. The fact that the teeth have no 'seam' (as far as I can tell) unlike so many other combs means that there is less friction in use so avoiding unnecessary micro abrasion of the hair shaft. Therefore using this or similarly constructed items is better for the condition and over all look of your hair in the long term as well as short term than most other similarl products. My hair definitely looks better and is easier to manage when I've been using Denman products for a while.
The shape of the comb, most specifically the teeth seems to follow a very subtle arc matching the curve of your head so more teeth are in contact with your scalp. Allthough this is a wide toothed comb the gap between teeth isn't as wide as with some but still more than wide enough to cope with many different hair types and to comb product through wet or damp hair without too much stretching and damage. With 24 teeth the comb is nice and long giving a good width of sweep through the hair which is just perfect in my opinion; I have found some other wide toothed combs to be too short and fiddly to get through a full head of hair easily and quickly.
As my hair is long quite thick with a little bit of a wave to it I wouldn't usually use a comb in any capacity other than to create a parting as it would normally just get lost in the shrubbery, tugging at and damaging the foliage. However as mentioned above I bought this comb for a specific purpose when I needed to carry something with me to maintain a groomed appearance throughout the day but was unable to take my usual massive bag, I knew a 'normal' comb wouldn't be good enough so compromised with this one. Although this was a downsize for me from a brush it is by no means a small comb and it certainly wouldn't fit in to a dinky little evening bag. Judging by eye it looks about 8-9 inches long and 2 wide. I would have bought a foldable brush, but the bag I was using was a long but very slim clutch so anything 'thick' would have spoiled the look of it and for me this comb fitted the bill perfectly.
Even though this comb was bought for a one off purpose I have continued to use it fairly regularly as it gets through my hair easily, dealing with knots with minimum damage and pain. I often opt to take it with me now in my usual bag even though it could accommodate my brush the comb is lighter in weight. It is also ideal for distributing conditioner and other treatments evenly through the hair even when wet. I don't use the comb for styling or cutting my hair, but apparently the long straight firm teeth give a good base on which to rest a scissors and give a good and easier cut.
My youngest daughter uses this regularly too, to distribute Ojon or other intensive hair conditioning products through her very long (top of the thigh) hair. Her hair is a different texture to mine and while it is thick the individual hairs themselves are very fine. This comb deals with this delicate hair without stretching or breaking them, and helps to keep her long delicate tresses in fine fettle.
Because of the thoughtful construction of this comb it is also easy to keep clean with no little raggedy threadlike bits of plastic peeling away along seams with repeated washing and use as sometimes happens as lesser combs get older.
I've had this comb for 6 years now and it looks almost like new. Admittedly we don't use it every day, nor do we use it with heat or many chemicals but it has stood the test of time very well indeed. I expect to get at least another several years use out of this comb, barring acts of dog, excellent value for money I thinkl.
Recently I decided to to purchase a few more Denman hair products. I only use Denman brushes and combs etc on my hair and have done for a very long time indeed. I have thin, fine hair and hate things to drag and pull my hair out and find that with Denman's that simply doesn't ever happen.
Although I own a few brushes from this brand I didn't own a comb so when I was in Boots recently I was deliberately looking for said comb so I could comb conditioner through my hair and comb my hair through when damp/wet.
This comb costing £2.10 I thought was a brilliant price for such an excellent branded product. I usually spend rather alot on Denman brushes so was pleasantly surprised it was so cheap! I actually bought a couple and put one away to use in the future!
The comb comes in a light and dark blue cardboard sleeve through which you can see most of the comb. On the front of it I am told that it is Denman Professional Comb For Grooming 'The hairdressers' hairbrush'. On the back of the sleeve I am told a bit about the product, how to look after the comb and contact details for Denman are given and the product number for this comb is D22.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Sleeve:
Denman brushes and combs are used and recommended by the world's foremost hairdressers in more than 50 countries worldwide.
Denman combs feature smooth, round-ended teeth, which do not scratch or damage the hair.
The Comb Itself:
The comb is large and made of black plastic. On the handle there is the letter D engraved and to above the 'teeth' on one side of the comb I'm told it is Denman Professional. This is such a sturdy and robust comb of decent thickness and feels like quality when holding it and using it.
Once again Denman have seriously come up with a fantastic comb. It has 24 'teeth' all of the same and decent thickness though it is a wide toothed comb this one so probably best suited to thick hair though although my hair is thin it is great too!
It glides through hair as the teeth are rounded and not jagged or sharp and find this brilliant to style with and use on my damp/wet hair because it doesn't drag at all through my locks.
This is a unisex and straightforward comb and I quite simply love it!
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc and of course it is also available online!
