Default Is it best to comb my hair in the shower or after?

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?

Hi danii, I comb my hair when I put in the conditioner to make sure it gets on all of the stands. Then I rinse that out and put in my leave in and my gel and comb that through to distribute the products evenly. I then use the "super soaker method" and run a little cold water through it, add a little more gel, then scrunch, scrunch, scrunch. I do this all in the shower then plop with a tshirt while I get dressed, then diffuse my hair. HTH!

Thank you so much, this seems to make loads of sense now that I think about it

My hair knots up a lot in the shower so I use a detangler and finger comb before co-washing or washing with low-poo. You can try finger combing to get rid of the conditioner instead of rubbing as well.
