How do you comb your hair in the shower?

So I was wondering...do all of you comb your hair in the shower? and if u do, how do u do it?
I use a big tooth comb and what I usually do is before rinsing the conditioner I comb it and part my line in one side and then turn my head upside down and start scrunching...the result is something like this


But as a result I don't get root curls...I was wondering if it may be better not to part my hair, just directly put my head upside down and then comb the hair going down and scrunch from there so it can go wherever it wants to...but if I do that, would it give me more root curls? And thinking I am with the head upside down...should I comb the hair bringing it to the front or to the back? I mean combing from the neck to the forehead or the other way around?

Sorry for all the specific technical questions and thanks in advance!!
I comb it all back then turn my head upside down and scrunch. Then let it part naturally but i do help it a little.
I part my hair as you do and have no root curl either, I'm sure parting it when it's wet, in the shower, isn't helping matters. I have recently been trying to do more upside down and while it helps to some degree it all gets a bit messy and tangly. I've never tried actually parting it with a comb while upside down, it might work - I think I'd just see which direction seems easier to do.
I've had 'flat top' all my life so I think I'll never get the root curl that other people have.

When the conditioner is in I put it in a side part. I split the hair in half, like I'm making pigtails and then finger detangle the right side, then the left. I then flip my hair upside down and finger detangle it all upside down

Thanks girls! I tried today to comb the hair upside down...i seem to have a little bit more of root curl but curls a the back are a disaster...its still wet so i will have to wait to see the results, i guess its a matter of trying And failing until we find our perfect routine, thanks again for the responses!
Worth saying I do then finger-comb it when I'm out of the shower and raking my leave-in and gel in . . . so that probably counteracts the upside down thing in terms of volume LOL. But I don't do it for volume, I just do it because I'm a little finnicky and want to make sure I get aaaaaallll my knots out.

Really the best thing for volume I think is probably root clipping, or taking a diffuser to your roots (on the cool setting, of course) and then kind of pushing up so your roots are elevated. If I'm looking for extra lift I'll do that. Not until the hair is dry or anything, just five minutes or so which tends to be enough to give my curls that extra boost..

I hate combing my hair. If my hair is too tangly, I'll get my KCKT and finger rake it in gently. Fingers are the best and cheapest combs. I never got good results from coming or raking when putting in product. I part my hair, stick my head under the water to get it soaking wet, flip my head upside down and scrunch product making sure I get it all over.

I might be the minority here, but it rarely fails me.
