neverending hair struggle

Everyone knows you are supposed to comb out wet hair with a wide toothed comb, right? Well I have always ignored that little bit of advice, mainly (manely? haha get it?) because my hair is extremely tangley. I have had hair dressers give up and ask me to comb out my own hair. My hair has a lot of texture to it, and I like to think it just looks like I have had a bad perm (as opposed to me sticking my finger in a socket when I was a baby) (which is what some people think. cough mom cough). So from a young age, I learned to just attack it with a hair brush so I don't have to sit there for an hour every day combing out my hair.

Fast forward to this week. It has come to my attention that my hair might not be growing the length I want it to grow because I break it with a brush every single time I shower (bad Elle). So, I hopped in the car and ran over to Walgreens to buy a wide toothed comb. This is the one I picked out ------->

I showered this morning, all excited to try out my new comb. I used my Aussi 3 minute miracle deeeep conditioner in the shower, and then a John Frieda leave in
conditioner to my towel dried hair. I let it set while I applied my Lush Therapy Message Bar to my legs (another project 10 lush contender), and then started to comb.

Opinion? It was horrible. I think my hair just got more and more tangly as I went along, as gentle as I tried to be. I think I damaged my hair more than I do with my brush! What am I doing wrong? For those of you that use these combs... is there any hope for my hair type? Do you brush it in sections? Share the knowledge!

My hair is super tangly too. I have to comb my own hair out at the salon as well. I was lucky enough to try Matrix Sleek Look shampoo and conditioner in the bright orange bottle. It really has a huge difference. I no longer have to cringe in pain as I comb my hair lol. I will never go without it again! Try it if you get the chance!

Try brushing with from the tips of your hair (while the conditioner is in) and then slowly work your way up in small sections but combing back down over the part you started with. If you start with the roots of your hair you'll just be pulling at your hair and it'll get tangled.
