Question: Should I pick?
I do not comb or pick my hair out. I only finger comb my hair in the shower when I rinse or co-wash. My mother-in-law is really insisting that I should pick my hair out. Saying that my hair was so pretty but it would look better picked out! I don’t want to pick out my hair. Do I HAVE to pick or comb my hair and can picking be hazardous to your health?

In my professional opinion, I believe that finger combing your hair is an excellent grooming technique for natural hair. It doesn’t pull the hair, it doesn’t stress the hair and in the end, it really depends on what works for you, the look you’re trying to achieve. Picking, combing with a comb and finger combing all give you different results and have a different affect on your hair and your style. If you are happy with your results, I would recommend sticking to your guns in a consistent but respectful way and hopefully, others will start to focus on their own hair instead of on yours.
