While reading through many natural hair blogs I have noticed that are mixed reviews on when it appropriate to comb natural hair. Some blogs say comb while your hair is wet because your hair is more flexible and able to stand the harshness of a comb. Other blogs say comb while your hair is dry because your hair is the strongest when dry. And then some blogs say to avoid combs at all cost and just finger comb. So which one is it?
1. Use a conditioner, conditioners give your hair the slip that it needs so combing or finger combing is easier.
2. If you can finger comb, finger comb ensures gentleness and less breakage.
3. If you must comb use a wide tooth comb, from reading many post use Denman comb apparently its smoother and causes less breakage.
Essentially it is up to, knowing when to comb is learned through trial and error because what may work for others may not work for you.
