I'm new, and all I've heard about as far as brushing products go is the continued argument of wood combs vs bone combs. Why do people not use a brush? I understand the BBB would be useless for detangling, but why not one of those plastic ones with the funky beads on the end, like this:

The main problem is that those little beaded ends can cause breakage in hair. I know they did in my hair. They're not too gentle on hair.

Then there are those of us that whose hedgehogs style their hair.

Well, they are bristly in a way.

Most of the time I use a wooden comb. I find that this helps prevent my hair from getting ripped and snapped.

I find that any type of non-BBB brush catches my hair at the place the bristles are put in. Combs are gentler, they'll handle more cleaning (the brushes with cushions get...icky inside if I wash them like I wash my comb) and they actually go through my hair (brushes tend to get stuck in the upper layer).

Tangle Teazers are GREAT!!!! if you are looking for a brush alternative that is.

I think if the ball is connected to the bristle, it's ok, I have one like that that has never given me a day of trouble. If the ball (or bead) is separate , there seems to be a gap that snags hair and that will cause damage.

But I also wanted to say the hedgehog is adorable!!!

Right now I use a plastic type comb from Walmart, but I really miss using my brush ( and yes I used a brush with the tips like those and I never had problems). I am thinking about buying a tangle teezer so maybe I won't miss my brush sooo much and it supposedly is safe to use on wet or dry hair.
