It should be self explanatory but Fingercombing is combing with your fingers.
Basically you just gently run your fingers through your hair and find knots as you go through. I used to do this a lot but now that I'm loc-ing my hair I obviously do not fingercomb anymore, that would be very counterproductive wouldn't it? Anyway this is a great way to prevent breakage and learn more about the type of hair you have. If you don't fingercomb make sure you are using a denman brush or a wide-tooth comb of some sort. Once I finally bought a quality wide tooth comb, my life was forever changed. Lastly, y'all, NEVER, ever comb on DRY HAIR!! May your edges flourish this new year!
promotes patience- You're gonna need that with natural hair
It's absolutely free- Who doesn't love free shit?
Helps move product throughout your hair
Can be done while dancing to your favorite tunes- I've personally tried that
Helps promote growth if done correctly
VERY time consuming-Better get a comfy chair
Not a thorough method just supplemental-I had to go back in with my wide tooth comb
