Also, I wouldn't recommend a solo comb. It just cuts, so you have this thickness at the top where it wasn't cut, then the rest that's thinner, and can make a mane look awkward. Pulling gets it all out, so your mane is even.

hmmm. That would make me iffy then.
Her mane is quite thick and a bugger to maintain if I don't pull it. I have cut it in the past and afterward realized it was definitely going to need pulled from then on. Hers is so thick that when cut it's painfully obvious that it was chopped and just doesn't look natural in the least (that, or maybe I just suck with scissors!). But either way it's much too think not to pull it.
I'm hoping that with a little work/time she'll get used to the whole idea.
