I have 3b/3c hair and I've only just recently started wearing it curly, and it's going fine apart from the fact it gets knots and I'm just really not used to the idea of leaving my hair non-brushed/combed at all.

A lot of people have recommended me to comb my hair after I put my conditioner in, and that's great apart from the fact my hair gets slightly knotted when I rinse the conditioner out (I rub my hair together when I rinse)
So I tried combing my hair after the shower but it's really knotty by then and almost impossible to comb, (I still use a wide-toothed comb) and I don't want it to be less curly by the time it dries?

Which do you personally do?
