To comb or not to comb?

I don't comb in the shower, but i've started to comb my hair in the morning when i wet it to distribute the products, and it's resulted in much better hair days
3B, fine texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity

Starting CG over beginning June 2013

Co-Wash: Treseme Naturals
Cleanse: Waiting on DB and CJDF
Rinse out: Biolage CB, Yes to Carrots, Giovanni 50:50
LI: Treseme Naturals, Yes to Carrots
Stylers: KCCC
PT: IAgirl's PT

No: Polyquats, BTMS in leave-ins/stylers
Yes: Protein, ACV, Oils
Personally, I'm washing about every 4 days so there are quite a few knots in there after multiple pony tails. Therefore, I absolutely MUST comb through and I usually due in the shower while conditioning. If I apply products then I may comb through for even distribution. But, my wide comb is the shower and stays there where it belongs. Once my hair is no longer soaking wet and conditioned, a comb isn't going near it!
I barely ever comb my hair now (since Jan and my last visit to the salon) but if I do, I use a wide tooth comb.
I bought mine at WalMart for around $3
Make sure to start at the ends!
The only reason I do use a comb is if I just feel my curls are completely out of control...but usually I use Tresseme Anti-breakage conditioner (amazing!!) and I finger comb it through my hair, rinse and then all I have to do is shake my hair when I'm out of the shower and scrunch some product in and I'm good to go!
Hope this helps!!
Does that Tresseme conditioner have 'cones? All of theirs I've ever looked at did, so I've quit even bothering to look at their products . . . .

I would only dare comb in the shower with condish in. Who prefers wide toothed combs? Who like small toothed combs? Why do you personally use them?

My new comb is amazing! I am losing less hair than I have in years and my frizz is much better. Oh I'm so happy I gave in.

to this discussion but, I thought I'd share what I've been doing over the last couple of days.

My frizz is horrendous. I tried several of the techniques I've seen on this site, but nothing is helping in that department. What i figured was that perhaps I needed to smooth the hair together somehow to stop the frizz. so after towel drying I put my products in and comb them thru in sections with a smaller toothed comb. After combing each section i scrunch that section individually. On the top of my hair i comb straight up and scrunch that way. I have better results like that.

Last night I tried to just finger comb and scrunch in the shower but...eek. Frizz was way bad, defiantly had to break out the fine tooth comb.
