It hurts when I comb out my curly hair after washing it. Do you have any suggestions on how to make this agonizing process tear-free?
Curly hair tends to be naturally dry, so start by making sure you are hydrating it well with both your shampoo and conditioner and apply a weekly deep moisturizing treatment. I also suggest a leave-in conditioner to help protect your strands and add extra moisture—in your case, you may want to add a detangler to the mix. Spray it on and then, using a wide-toothed comb, carefully work your way through smaller sections of hair.
Comb in short strokes toward the ends, and work your way up. Use your other hand to hold the secion or take the pressure off the roots so ot doesn't rip or tug. If you find that the detangler just isn't enough, consider adding hair oil or even a smoothing product to help things slide through. Even when you're wearing hair curly, a smoothing product will help keep the coils from getting so frizzy
