A great brush from Denman, the leader in brushes in the barber and stylist world. This 5 row brush can be used on folks with thick, full-volumed hair, or people with shorter thinner hair. It won't irritate the scalp or pull and yank at tangles and knots. It has a smooth stroke and feels comfortable in the hand. It is very lightweight so you can keep it in your hand with scissors and a spray bottle, no problem.
