I have fine curly hair as well, and am force to pull it back for work every morning after workouts (military). Is it safer to pull it back wet or blow dry it first, anyone?

There is a brush called the Curl Easy Pro that seems much gentler on hair than a regular round brush because it doesn't have bristles, I cannot find the large size online anymore unfortunately. There are knock offs on eBay.
