Always comb the hair before you use a BBB.It is not meant to detangle hair. If you find it makes your hair greasy, then use it before you wash it. Give yourself a good brushing, distributing the oils down the hair. If you use any type of oils in your hair as a leave in, it will attract dust and lint more. The BBB REMOVES this from your hair! Not only does it smooth my hair, it feels nice.The lint and dust can create knots! I have several BBB with stiff to medium firmness. The George Michael/Madora Brush reaches the scalp and is firm, where the others I have are more for general brushing and are softer bristles. Here is an album of my BBB if you are interested.It includes my wide tooth combs too.
