Default How long does it take for you to brush/comb your hair?

It takes me about 30 minutes to comb/brush my hair I usually section my hair and apply olive oil to it when it's wet, and then curly pudding. This takes a while since my head is so huge What about you?

My hair is still pretty short, but it takes me about 15-30 minutes. I finger-comb it wet, and then use my "magic brush" to detangle with leave-in and some kind of oil. Once my hair is detangled I put in my hair cream and use my magic brush to brush it all in.

LOL...it takes me about 8-10mins to detangle...My head is big too...

The olive oil sheen spray works wonders on my hair for detangling.

10 minutes top, but i have super short hair since my BC. I co-wash in the shower every day and finger comb it. Combing/Brushing destroys my curl pattern and practically eliminates most if not ALL of the definition

10 minutes top for me. I usually will just get my hair wet and slowly comb up...luckily I'm not getting a lot tangles lately since I've been using shea butter and co-washing more often.

About 3-5 mins with my jilbere after a cowash. For a thorough one [shower comb then fine tooth in small sections] about 20 mins.

Hello! I think I know what you're talking about. I just started using that type of brush recently (about a week ago) and the change is fantastic! You can see it in my fotki

I am not sure if mine was Conaire but, the brissles were the exact same. Mine has a handle with some kind of cushy gel...
