I've recently discovered that finger combing doesn't help my hair in the sense that it doesn't smooth out my strands which causes frizz and poofiness. I've started using a shower comb to make sure my hair is detangled and smooth. Because of this, I'm wondering if I could get definition using some sort of brush or comb after I've applied stylers. In the past, brushes define my ends but not my roots; I don't know if it's a technique or tool issue. It could also be an issue of needing to use a strong hold styler (but then there's the issue of getting the tool to actually run through my hair with a strong hold styling product). Does anyone else use a tool to define their hair after they've applied a styler? Every once in a while, I just get really frustrated due to not understanding why I just can't get my hair to do anything except poof.
