After my long journey transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, the biggest challenge has been combing out the knots. Curly hair tends to get very tangled, especially if you wash & go. They key to keeping more hair on your head and less in the comb is the right conditioner. It should be slick enough to help you easily comb (I use a volume comb) out the knots. The only time I comb out my hair is when I'm conditioning it, just before I rinse.
