  • I never brush curly hair!! The only thing I do is use conditioner in the shower and comb it through with a wide tooth comb. I never ever ever ever brush or comb it when it's dry (well okay- I do to pull it back into a pony tail....)

  • Pantene pro v detangler spray works wonders for me. I have wavy hair with curls underneath in the back. It gets so tangled and knotted. I straighten my hair a lot because I hate the waviness and curls. All my friends with straight hair always say how they would love to have my hair but I want theirs lol

  • I use tons of Conditioner, AND when I brush it I NEVER use a round brush I use the flat brushes that are made to NOT tangle the hair, it helps a lot. You might also try a spray on leave in conditioner or something like Nexxus.

  • Okay I use a ton of pantene detangler and conditioner in the shower and leave in conditioner out of the shower. I have tried to use a wide tooth comb, but it just gets stuck and Im feel like I am going to break the teeth off of it, lol.

  • You should not brush out your curly hair. Wash it, use a lot of conditioner and finger comb it while you are in the shower. Use good products for curly not cheap drug store stuff.

  • I use Paul Mitchell Smoothing line.... and do not brush curly hair. It will take a week or so, but after you stop fighting your curls...they will find their natural beautiful place.

  • Those who said not to brush curly hair are correct. Comb conditioner through after shampooing, this will take out the tangles easier and with less pain. Rinse and apply hair product of your choice but don't brush again. Don't rub your hair with a towel because it damages hair and causes breakage and split ends. Just press and squeeze with the towel or wrap your head with the towel and let it soak up the excess moisture. If you have to blow dry use a cool setting and lift and scrunch with your fingers and dry from the roots to avoid puff and frizz.
