Hi curlies! In the past five years I haven’t used a comb or a brush to detangle my curls (well except the one time I did dry-brush my curls for the above picture 🙂 ). In this post I would like to share some reasons as to why you should ditch that brush or comb or yours!

Like I have mentioned in this post before I didn’t know for a very long time that my hair actually is curly and not just wavy, because I used to brush my curls when they were dry… To read this article, please head over to NaturallyCurly, where it has been published!

      Hi Valery, when during your washing routine do you scrunch your curls? If you touch your curls while they’re drying it will cause them to be frizzy. Only scrunch your curls when they’re completely dry. You could also try to use other products (like the AG re:coil that enhances curls). Do you follow the CG method (e.g. no sulfates and no silicones)?

        Well, I use pantene color revival Shampoo and conditioner (my hair isn’t colored I just like this shampoo and conditioner )

          These products contain silicones, I recommend only using silicone and sulfate free products to get rid of that frizz 🙂

    Combing and brushing are the fastest ways to breakage for curlies. Our phalanges are our best detangling tools. Wide-toothed seamless detangling combs are ok too. Ultimately a curlie must never rake/comb through his/her hair while dry.
