I have some wunderbare news! You can now purchase your very own, original Denman brush right here in Nairobi, Kenya! A Denman brush is a key component to your hair arsenal and I'm glad to say, we FINALLY have an outlet that supplies the real thing!
I must give you fair warning that Denman brushes do not come cheap; they range from Kshs. 1450.00 - 2500.00. Upon my discovery, I immediately went into my damn-it-to-hell shopper mode and told the lovely shop attendant the following words:
Dear TV Gods, Please bring back Futurama.
And with that, I became the proud owner of my very own, D14 Denman Brush.
Now I bought the D14 for two very simple reasons: 1) I have thick and coily hair, so the less the number of bristles, the easier it would be for me to gently brush though my hair, 2) I was not about to spend a cent more than that on a damn hair brush, nope not today.
I haven't yet used it... I'm patiently waiting until shampoo and deep condition day. But I have opened it and fondled it quite a bit :)
Now, for those of you who don't get what the big deal is and why anyone in their right mind would spend that much money on a brush, allow me to explain: Denman brushes are a natural girl's best friend when it comes to defining your curls. By define, I mean creating that gorgeous clamped, uniform curl effect as opposed to a more bushy sporadic, puffy fro look. They are also super for detangling your hair and ridding it of tangles.
Before I bought my D14, I used a fake Denman, which by the way, was equally effective. It has long since fallen apart and so this purchase couldn't have come at a better time.
So, enough teasing, you can purchase a Denman Brush from Lipstick in Sarit Center, Westlands. Now if you are interested in purchasing a fake Denman brush, you can do so at the beauty supply store in Adams arcade, (forgive me the name escapes me) right next to the Tuskeys Super Market.... They fetch for Kshs. 750.00
If you have finer hair, I suggest you purchase a slightly denser brush. But if you have thicker hair, a D14 will do you justice. I also suggest that you detangle your hair with a wide tooth comb prior to using the Denman, especially if you have thicker hair.
Happy shopping ladies!
Enjoy your Monday. x
