Thanks very much for your reply! It is interesting that you say BKT'd hair is "chemically treated" because most stylists insist that BKT does not contain chemical and that it is, in fact, healthier for the hair. This has not been my experience, but I feel like I need to continue doing BKT's in order to manage my hair.
Anyway, I will definitely talk to my hair stylist about waiting until my hair is mostly dry before starting in with the brush. I actually have a Mason Pearson (boar and nylon mixed). I was thinking about suggesting to my stylist that he use it, but I didn't want to imply that he doesn't know what he's doing and I also was not sure if the flat surface of the MP would give me the rounded look on the ends that I like my hair to have. So, my questions ...
* Does it make any difference at all to use a pure boar brush, or is the difference all in brushing wet vs. dry hair
* Would using a Mason Pearson flat brush give me a rounded look on the ends. My ends tend to be rather stiff from the bkt and it's difficult to bend them
* My hair is also very frizzy and has a naturally rough, course texture -- even with the bkt. I'm concerned that if we wait until my hair is 90% dry, it won't smooth out. What do you think?
Thanks again for all of your help!
