I use the Bass 100% Boar Bristle Brush for my edges if I feel like it. The Denman D3 is the best thing that has ever happen to me! The girls on nappturality.com were going on and on about it so, when I saw it in a little shop in the British Virgin Islands for $8 I bought it. I have since thrown away other brushes. With some conditioner in the shower this thing clears through your hair like a hot knife through butter. It collects all the hair in the brush and cleans easily. Eventually you see less and less hair in your brush which means more and more hair on your head! I LOVE THIS BRUSH!!!!
These are all my old brushes, replaced by the 2 lovelies above
