I'm going to get straight to the point:
The kinks in our hair are points of weakness so kinky-curly hair is weaker than straight or wavy hair by nature.
The average black hair will break after 33 grams of strain when wet; that figure is 43 grams for Caucasian hair and 63 grams for Asian hair.
Dry hair can take more strain than wet hair, it will break after about 100 grams for Asian hair. If we extrapolate that to black hair, we're looking at about 53 grams of weight or strain before our hair breaks.
Damp hair offers a happy compromise, not too dry to be brittle and not so wet that it's weak. So, in conclusion, to the extent possible detangle and comb damp her.
