This might be my stupidity, but I failed to notice that this brush was 'handbag sized' when I bought it; to be honest, I thought that Amazon had made a mistake and sent me a child's brush until I checked the measuements. I have short, thick hair, which this brush fails to make any sort of impression on. Saved up for what I hoped would be a decent hairbrush, and I'm gutted. I don't blame Denman, although I think the product description could have been clearer - hence the reason for writing this review. Please don't waste your money like I have, unless you're sure this brush is right for you!
