Do you comb when you moisturize?

I hear of low manipulation and I would like to do that but I am afraid of dreadful tangles.
I moisturize everyday and use a wide tooth comb but I still see hairs in the comb and I panic.
Should I not detangle when I moisturize?

empire...don't freak out missy.we all shed daily,100 strands a day is even NORMAL lol.I knoow it sounds like a lot but its not.the faster your hair grows the more dead hair will shed.as long as those strands are long with little tiny white colored bulbs at the ends of each strand you are ok.if the strands are choppy little strands that are so short,then that's breakage girl.if you are combing and u see long strands in the comb its quite alright.I gently comb or brush after moisture and sealing.sometimes breakage can occur even if u moisturize.yes even if u moisturize,reason being,you may not use enough to cover each section for eeven distribution.from the rroot to ends must be lubricated to prevent breakage.

I don't comb when I moisturize and I moisturize twice a day.
I only comb on wash days.
I just use a rat tail comb, part my hair and apply moisturizer and oil to seal. Then put my hair right back in my braid or bun.

You are welcome.Thats a great question.The hair is so fragile.Just using the comb too harsh or brush can snap the hair.Hair thats too dirty can lead to breakage.The clothes (shirts or dresses) can nap off the ends which shorten length in various parts of the back of the hair.Your pillow or material of your scarf,or not tying up the hair at all can lead to breakage....for heavens sake your jewelry can snap the hair too...my cheapie earrings kept causing my hair to break from being tangled in them.I used to even have hairs of breakage on the backs of my shirts.Its truly vital that the hair is properly cared for,like lace as COCO has said.Moisturizing and Sealing is so important everyday.Knowing when the hair need protein....not using it on a just because basis.Hair is job in itself lol Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Laughing

When I moisturize, I do not comb thru my hair. I take my hair down, moisturize and only smooth the edges with a boar brush. And back it goes into a bun or french twist.

I have noticed that wearing cornrows make it so much easier to oil the scalp. I will have mine done this weekend again.

I use a regular pony tail holder to hold the ends and add a piece. So my length is protected and my ends are hidden too.

Detangle hair before washing it. Brush hair thoroughly before washing to get any loose hairs or dirt out. Hair tends to tangle on its own when hair is dry and wetting it can make it worse.
While hair is wet, use a wide-toothed comb and section hair off in small sections. To prevent knots, comb beginning at the ends and slowly move up, section by section, to the roots...

Since tangles tend to happen at the ends of hair, be sure to apply a deep conditioner to the ends. This will soften them and help to prevent tangling.
If hair is already tangled, apply a dime-sized amount of oil or conditioner to the knot to loosen it with a wide-toothed comb, carefully combing out the knot.... Shocked
