Should I comb my curly hair in the shower


facts about combing hair in the shower

Brushing curly hair in the shower is hard. And it's especially hard not to end up looking like a frizzed Lion when you are done brushing. But on the other hand not brushing is really not an option because eventually you will get a real knotted mess. The correct way to brush curly hair is to section off your hair in smaller sections for better control and use a high quality detangling brush or wide toothed comb.

One of my favorite brushes for combing hair in the shower is the Denman D4 9 row large brush.

By combing wet curly hair you put tension on the strands that extends your hair and could cause your hair to snap or break under tension. But if you use the right technique and the right comb like a wide tooth comb with no sharp edges together with a conditioner or detangler then you can gently comb with reduced risk of breakage. Start by combing your hair at the ends. Section off as needed and work slowly to your roots or hairline and apply a detangler or leave in conditioner as needed.

It's best to brush curly hair while it's moist or wet because it helps prevents frizz and flyaway. You avoid that frizzed Lion hair look.
