    Default How often do you comb/brush your hair?

    I searched through the threads, and I couldn't find one with the same questions I was curious to ask.

    How often do you comb/brush your hair?

    I was watching this India hair care video and the person who uploaded it said that combing your hair three times a week is enough and her friend in the youtube video had such gorgeous floor length hair.

    So now it has gotten me somewhat curious to know how much everyone here combs or brushes their hair.

    I usually comb my hair and bbb every single day and often twice a day (unless I am lazy and leave it braided).

    Poll is coming up soon!

    What a great thread idea! I used to brush it like 100 times a day and then switched over to twice, once in morning, once before bed (maybe once in between sometimes) and noticed a big improvement in my hair

    I'm the kind of person who combs upon waking up and before going to bed... Although I don't think that finger combing counts does it? I think maybe it does... I also may comb a third time when I'm bored and reading through the threads... :Cheese:

    Yeah, I used to do that also! I think that brushing too often causes more split ends and frizziness.

    Yeah, I was wondering about finger combing, but that probably isn't damaging to hair like a comb or brush could be. I would like to start doing finger combing more as a replacement to regular combing! I really want to stop getting split ends almost completely.

    I usually comb twice a day and BBB once every couple of days. If I am playing with hairstyles and practising, then I comb more.

    I usually comb it each morning. However, if it is really tangled, I might run my fingers through it with some oil, and comb it out. On rare occasions, I don't comb if my curls are really nice, but that way it just looks horrible by the end of the day.

    I almost never use a brush.

    Most days I only brush it out once and that is to put it up before work. After work I take it down and then just gather it back up in a scrunchie on top of my head- no brushing needed.

    I'm not sure what to vote because I finger-comb exclusively. Should I count that as combing? I mean, it is, pretty much.
    I detangle in the shower with conditioner in my hair, so that's every three to seven days usually.
