No! Especially for black hair, combing/brushing breaks your hair off. Always finger-comb. And for the lady that says keep your hair trimmed-- it's untrue that split ends keep your hair from growing. It's just that the hair breaks off more easily. But you won't have that hair-breakage problem in the first place if you follow these 3 steps (mostly for kinky black-hair):



1) use non-alcohol based conditioner (most people I know don't even shampoo their hair because daily shampooing causes dry, brittle texture)-- they dry out your hair terribly, which increases breakage and slows growth

2) if you want to comb your hair, only do so when it's wet-- hair slides out of tangles more easily.

3) don't use lye-chemicals or straighteners-- this one's pretty difficult if you're like me and have a huge head of frizzy curls.



My hair has grown significantly since I've done these three things. And I haven't had a hair cut nor have I used a brush in 4 years, so I'm obviously doing something right.

I think it activates the scalp, makes it healthier, and the hair grows faster.

Brushing makes it fall out faster, which makes it grow slower.
