De-tangling 3a hair

Jasmine_13Jasmine_13 Registered Users Posts: 54
I've read alot of things about only brushing your hair when it's wet, so does that mean during the week, when I don't wash my hair, I can't brush my hair...?! Is it better to silghty dampen your hair and then brush it, or could that effect your hair?

Thanks

    Basically.
    In the past I've sprayed my hair down with a conditioner/water mixture, detangled combed, though not really to style it. I only do that if my hair is getting gnarly but I'm too tired/don't have enough time to take a full on shower. Then it just gets braided or whatever.

    I don't brush my hair at all, I only comb it. When it's tangled during the week, I wet my hair down and finger comb it. Sometimes I use Bioterra Leave In while I am detangling.

    I haven't brushed my hair in years, and I've never used detangler. I use a conditioner for a no-poo routine, and then I use a wide-toothed comb when it's wet.

    I think the best thing for curly hair is finger combing or using a wide tooth comb when hair is wet and covered in conditioner that has good slip.
