The Denman D83 Large Paddle Brush is great for detangling knots and snarls. It's amazing for gently grooming long, thick hair. Ball-ended nylon pins are set into an air-cushioned natural rubber pad to penetrate, smooth and straighten the hair. The matte-finish handle provides grip and control. Detangle carefully, with a lot of your favorite conditioner in your curls. Detangle from the ends to the roots. Use this brush with a lot of patience and care.
