How to de-shed when finger combing?

I typically prefer a buzz cut (so short my 3B hair doesn't even curl), but I'm trying to grow my hair out. I'm afraid of the brush and comb based pain of my youth, so I decided to only grow my hair out as long as I can get by just finger combing. However, at three inches my curls are already holding on to an absurd amount of shed hair. How can I get as much out as possible? I cowash every few days (I have to do so frequently due to a scalp condition) and I never feel like I'm done getting shed hair out.
