This combing business. Is it a gentle fondle or drag it by the scuff of the neck?
as much as it takes to get the dead stuff out. Some cling on more than others.
If a bit of root comes with it, does that mean I've been too rough?
depends how big the " bit " is.
I'm thinking hair follicles rather than clumps
thanks for the advice, I love the fact by knowing where I live you can adjust advice accordingly
