I have very fine, curly is hair which is prone to frizz & split ends. I’ve recently started only combing with a wide tooth one. Do any mums do the same or do you all brush?

  • Nope I’m a brushed :) bug my hair only has a slight wave and I usually straighten it :)

  • I use a comb sometimes but find brush works better as being a busy mum of 3 find hard to get a lot of time to spend on hair in morning, usually try it up but since having shoulder surgery unable to so it’s been down and just brushed had so many comments on how good it looks, surprised me so much.

  • I brush not comb, but I have very thick hair, and a comb tends to just get stuck – ouch!

  • I have started using wen. I know it is more expensive than a lot of others, but my hair is not frizzy anymore and in better condition than it has been for a long time!

  • Thank you ladies, I am finding my hair is in better condition with less split ends, a leave in conditioner I’m using too.

  • My hair is pretty much the same, l mainly use a brush but only because we seem to have a comb thief in this place. Though in reality my hair frizzes no matter what l use a comb or a brush. It drives me crazy.

  • Yes a Afro comb is the best for not getting split ends and there good for brushing conditioner through in the shower to.so the ends are treated

  • I have the same type of hair and I find a wide tooth comb the best to keep frizz away. I comb when damp and then flip my hair and scrunch with a bit of mousse. That’s the best way I fight the curly frizz. :-)

  • its been recommended by the hairdresser to use a comb and not brush

  • i use a perm comb or afro comb as i suffer from the dreaded frizz too

  • Let you hair naturally dry with some leave in conditioner and comb with an afro comb

  • I have quite thick wavy hair myself. After washing my hair and allowing it to dry naturally I have really nice curls. However the minute I brush my hair it just turns to frizz. I think I need to invest in a wide tooth comb too.

  • if you brush it will go frizzy

  • I have short and thick hair which is chemically treated (coloured). I never brush my hair, as I found I was losing more hair by doing that. I only use a wide-tooth comb, and it’s made the world of difference. I also use a leave-in conditioner after washing, and I rub through some serum, and my hair has reacted well to both those.

  • I have fine and frizzy hair that is wavy and chemically treated and find that certain types of brushes cause it to fall out. A good serum or leave in conditioner and a wide tooth comb is great!
