A change in the build quality is disappointing to a long-time buyer of this Denman Vent Brush - plastic bristles hard on scalp!
on 19 April 2015
I’ve had 2 of these exact Denman Vent brushes for over a decade now and I’ve always loved them, owning a black one and a pink one. The pink one eventually after daily use for a decade lost a couple of rubberised bristles and thus I decided to replace it.
As I couldn’t find another pink one on Amazon I chose a black one. The build quality is NOT the same! However i’ve kept it and not returned it as I needed it (I like one in the bathroom and one in the bedroom) but it is in no way as good as the two exact same model vent brushes I have owned for over a decade.
They’ve changed the quality of the materials used in the bristles, they used to be made of a rubberised material that was extremely comfortable in use on the scalp. This one is hard and rather uncomfortable - the bristles are now made from a cheaper to manufacture hard plastic! Very disappointing to a long time buyer and user of this vent brush by Denman!
But, I’ve kept it as its the best brush I know for just brushing out my hair at the end of the day when I’ve had hairspray on it and also its superb for using when I am collecting my hair up into a ponytail etc. I’ve gone back to using my Aveda paddle brush for brushing as this vent brush is so uncomfortable on the scalp if you press on too hard when using it.
So, a good brush design but the change of materials used in manufacture lend this to be a big let down!
