Review of DENMAN® Hair Smoother Brushes

We are acquainted once again with Denman, a UK brand used by hairdressers worldwide, to tell you about their new Tangle Smoother Hair Brush and the Shower Brush.

This brush will do the best job of detangling wet hair that has been ‘dried off’. The metal pins and the cushioned back (air …
