I do the combing thing sometimes, too. I'll comb through a small bit of gel and then scrunch in some more gel to reform the curls. It doesn't get as curly that way and the curls don't start as close to the root when I comb, though.
I looked at your photo album. You have a loose curl, so combing may pull out too much curl for your liking. You have very pretty hair, btw -- not boring at all.
Try it and see. If you don't like it, it's easy to fix as re-wetting your hair.
