It’s safe to comb hair when wet.

VERDICT: False

Are you too aggressive when brushing or combing your wet hair? You might’ve noticed that more strands than usual snapped off in your brush. It’s no surprise – hair swells when it’s wet, making it fragile and more susceptible to breakage. The best way to detangle wet hair is to use a wide-tooth comb or pick, and gently work from the ends up to the root. Also, avoid using an actual brush until your hair is dry – brushes have many teeth, which can stretch wet hair to the breaking point.
