Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

It Looks Like I'm Losing More Hair When I Use the Denman. Is that Okay?
If you are gentle with the Denman, it is a very gentle way to comb your hair. You will notice more hair coming out of your head using a Denman than a comb. Every day we shed a certain amount of hair (normally 50-100 strands every day). As long as you aren't losing more than 100 strands a day or so, that's normal. This means you lose approximately 350 to 700 strands of hair a week.

When we comb our hair with a regular comb, it actually leaves most of your shed hair in your hair. When you use a Denman, it grabs up all the shed hair and takes it out of your hair, so it looks like there is more hair being lost (provided you are gentle with it, that is).

I comb with the Denman once a week, and I lose about a small mouse worth of hair each week.

You can see in the photo how much hair is left in the brush when I'm done combing my hair each week.
