I used the brush genie on their home site and a D3 is the reccommended brush for me. I just recently ordered a natural bristle Ambassador brush though so I think I'll wait before getting another brush. I try to limit brush purchasing to once a month ;) . But anyhow I think a brush that works more like a comb might be the charm for my hair. So do you ladies the Denman is worth it? and it's average price to pay $15 for brush and shipping and handling altogether right? Thank you for taking time to read this post and take care enjoy your hair

I have a D5 (the largest and heaviest one they have, I think) that I purchased through a group order orchestrated by LisaJaney a few months ago. The brush was $11.25, but I don't remember the shipping. I chose the D5 because it is recommended for extremely long and very thick hair. Well, my daughter has the very thick hair and I'm going for extremely long (probably have what Denman would consider extremely long right now at waistlength). I love my brush! It feels great on my scalp and goes through my hair wonderfully. Like combing my hair with 9 widetoothed combs at once. My daughter (who flinches at the mere thought of me combing or brushing her hair) likes it, too.
I expect this brush to last for many years. Yes, I do indeed think they are worth it. :D

I have a denman paddle brush and think it is a very good brush for not a lot of $$$. It is the only one of theirs that I have tried.

I just posted a long reply on the "thank you" post, but here is the URL http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/viewtopic.php?t=817
I bought my D3 at Sally's. It was about 10 USD. You can find them on the brush aisle, usually in a bottom basket. They are packaged in boxes. Sometimes they have the all black ones (that are suppose to be gentler than the regular ones), but they are in a display above the baskets.
But to get the COOL looking ones (or bbb) you need to order it from somewhere, I think.

going to suggest the Sally's shop for a D3 (that's the size they normally have, but I've seen an occasional D4 there as well).
If folks want to do another Denman brush order (we split the company shipping however-many-ways, then just pay shipping from the "order mom's house" to yours. That way, you pay less than you would if you had ordered it directly. Last time, we split the $6 shipping charge nine ways I think it was.....) I would volunteer to orchestrate another group order, IF folks want to do that.... I loved the DENMAN part of our last order, and the brushes came REALLY fast.
LMK if you think a group order is in order (cute, huh!) Oh, and to answer your Q, Impatient26, I love my Denmans and think they are a nice nice nice brush. TBear gave me my first one in October. In November I bought THREE more. I have the D3 from TBear, then bought a leopard D3 (the rubber and teeth are black; I still like the plain D3 best of those two) and I bought a yellow D-something; it's like a purse-size, but has a longer handle. Less teeth, spread out more. I use it for wet-combing. I also bought a blue D4 and LOVE that. It's similar to the D5 like Tresses has, but lighter. It is a very very nice brush as well. My favs of the Denmans I have are the D3 from TBear and the D4 because of it's weight/size. Wonderful brushes; ten bucks WELL=spent.

Yeah I'd like to be part of a group order if you ladies are going to get one together. And even if you don't I think I'm going to buy a Denman or two. Thanks again for all your replies
Take care and enjoy your hair

I say YES to a group order . . . I might not be able to live without the wooden handled ones! ;)

I've used Denman brushes since high school, I love them. I like to be in on a group order too.
