Do you comb your hair? How are you dealing with falling out hair?

Hi, do you comb your hair?
I don't but I don't know how to get falling out hair out
of my hair. They fall out at the root but they stay in my hair until I see them and pull them out. It's annoying but I don't want to comb. How are you dealing with that?

    The falling out hair came out in the shower when I shampoo/condition. However a couple years ago, the drought came and I needed to get out of the shower faster so I started combing. Now, I comb dry to detangle then shampoo/condition, but most of the hair still comes out when I shower.

    You have to keep in mind the scalp naturally loses 50-150 strands of hair a day and only around 10% of the hair follicles are dormant. Humans have between 90k-150k strands depending on your genetics such as being a red head or a blonde. Black/ brunettes fall in between and have 100k-110k on their head.

    If you comb/ finger detangle after you or while you condition your whole head or sections, not only does it reduce breakage it’s also far better than doing it dry.

    Dry detangling can increase the chances of breakage, but so can wet hair detangling, I personally do condition detangling because it reduces the friction that causes the breaking points and also nourishes :D.

    +1 for shower. I don't comb my hair until It's soaking wet and coated with conditioner in the shower, and I use an insanely wide tooth comb. I bought a tub shroom so that any hair I can't collect from my comb doesn't clog the drain.

    As other people are asking here, I'm a 3a/b looking to start just finger detangling. My only concern is, I know that when I comb I get a small amount of dead hair come out (even less now I'm using flaxseed gel :) ). I find that dead hair comes out a bit on its own during washing but not as much as when combing. I want to finger detangle because it would mean less breakage and hopefully frizz, but I'm not sure if it's the best for my hair in terms of dead hair as my hair is low porosity and fairly high density. Thoughts? :)

    Generally speaking finger detangling is considered better all around rather than combing. Most of my dead hair comes out in the shower during shamp/condish rather than in the comb before the shower.
