Despite being incredibly static, once straightened out my hair is pretty fine/flat and I end up looking like Taylor from Hanson so I usually use plenty of spray or oomph powder to get some life into the roots. I'd tried backcombing before with a regular comb but it always just seemed to make a mess for an hour before returning to it's limp self an hour later. I'd seen a couple of bloggers mention this Denman Dressing Out Brush to get a bit more life into their roots so I decided to give it a whirl and I'm actually really impressed with it! As expected the brush works better on a non hairwash days but it gives life to my roots at the slippery just washed stage too. The photos above were taken 2 hours after washing my hair and it stayed like that all day, obis the brush didn't miraculously curl it, I used my ghds for that, but I backcombed the front two sections of hair, pulled them to the side, curvy gripped 'em in and I was good to go! The dressing out brush also works miracles with extensions, with my hair being so fine the snappy grips never hold onto my head and I always have that awkward moment when you're going about your business and find a stray 'stepson on your shoulder….By teasing about 1cm of hair away from my head with this before snapping the grips in I've found I can go a whole day without losing any fake hair, wins all round!
