adopt a low/no comb routine. Combing the hair is a form of mechanical manipulation and may encourage breakage (Source). Thus, keep combing to a minimum (e.g., once a month, every few months, or never). If possible, opt for finger detangling instead.
Other tips:*Use a wide tooth bone/resin comb instead of a regular comb
*Finger detangle on dry, lubricated, stretched hair
*Comb on damp, conditioner-soaked hair
*Toss out your brushes (denman, tangle teezer, paddle, etc.)
