I have fine hair & use a wide tooth comb when soaking wet. I rake my products in as well & then scrunch. I've not tried a brush of any kind since I went curly except if I've straightened. I've thought about the wide toothed plastic ones. Fine tooth combs cause more clumping for me & I don't have enough hair for that. I don't want it too stringy but I don't want giant clumps either.
