    I've never done this before, but I would say that brushing out your hair can't be more damaging than straightening it constantly and hair can recover from straightening trauma. I don't know, maybe someone else could help you with this. For my crazy hair day thing I separated my hair into like 8 different sections and put a hair tie on each section. It was crazy indeed, but it was cool.

    I've brushed my hair out a number of times over the years, and my curls always come back as soon as I get it wet again.

    The only damage you run the risk of is breakage, but if you're careful when you're combing you should be able to minimize it :)

    I agree with MimsTX. I have HAD to brush out my hair for various roles and haunted houses (especially when I play Magenta from RHPS) and as long as you are easy on the hair, as soon as you wet it, the curl comes back. The only problem that I have is usually the day after my curl pattern is a little confused and funky but after that it goes back fine!

    It's easier for me if I use a pick instead of a regular brush!
