Don't comb it! He is degrading you and trying to make you conform because he must believe only straight hair is professional. If he continues you need to say something to him and threaten you will go to the media for discrimination. That is disgusting treatment.

Many people think curly hair can or should be brushed, plenty of trained hairdressers are ignorant enough to comb us out into a huge pouf, and this is a man who likely knows even less about hair than a woman does! To me the comment was more stupidity than anything, combing our hair gives us anything but a "neat appearance"!!

Nobody has pretended it was acceptable to say, we have all said it is unacceptable given the context and the manner in which it was done. It is acceptable to for a manager to remind the staff about personal grooming IF it is done in a professional manner, this was not. It would have been closer to discrimination if the manager had pulled the OP aside and only spoken to them, yet other people also had untidy hair and were not reminded.
