    Default Best Brush for Fine, Wavy Hair?

    I have not been brushing or combing my hair at all in order to avoid breakage, but I think I am going to have to start brushing a little to keep tangles out. Can anyone recommentd a good brush that won't break all of my hair off?

    I just read in another thread about the Tangle Teazer that seems to be the craze - and according to testimonies here and elsewhere, it really works...less breakage, easy brushing, etc. I don't have one, yet, so I can't say yay or nay!!!

    I only use a wide-toothed comb at the moment. Works just fine. I do have a brush, it's a 50% BB / 50% nylon brush but I used to only use it right before washing. Right now I only comb my hair with the wide-toothed comb right after washing, with my hair soaking wet, preferably while applying conditioner (but usually just soaking wet right after shampooing).

    It seems I can't comb my hair at all without breaking hairs. I can just hear them breaking.

    A paddle brush with no balls on the ends of the bristles. The base should be flexible and the bristles soft. I can recommend the Goody Jojoba Oil Infused brush. It's so soft and flexible that I don't think it could rip through tangles if I wanted it to. It should be available at well-stocked drug stores like WalMart or Rite-Aid.

    Thanks, Spidermom. I know you mentioned that before. I'll have to look for it at Walmart.

    Denman D5! I can't recommend it highly enough. (ETA: I'm assuming you mean a brush to use on dry hair.)

    I feel like I get tangles out better with fingers or a wide toothed comb.

    After detangling BF's hair in the bathtub with conditioner on it, I've been doing the same myself - using a wide toothed comb and lots of conditioner on the ends. He's a thick, fine wavy, and I'm a thin, fine semi-wavy, so his hair tends to dread up and mine tends to get spiderwebby and break at the ends when it gets tangled.

    I do occasionally brush, and then I use only a BBB. But I have to be very careful and NOT detangle with a brush, or then go very, very slowly - the BBB seems to rip my ends if I am not careful.

    I have to agree with dancingbarefoot - the Denman brushes are heaven.

    Another Denman vote. I have both the D3 and D5.
