I dont own a brush either. I have a wide tooth comb in the shower. I put on conditioner and comb it there, then rinse. I also let it dry naturally, unless it's really cold. (I'm in Michigan) then I use a diffuser and scrunch my curls to life. Works great for me!!
3a/3b hair. It seems to change on a daily basis. Which is good, who wants to be the same
