Combing Frequency and Natural Hair

My question is simple.

How often do you find yourself combing your hair during a styling session?

I am trying to incorporate low-manipulation tactics, but I swear every step of doing my hair requires a comb. I pre-detangle with my fingers after the pre-poo, put my hair in sections, detangle with water (and conditioner), wash, condition, and comb through again. Then I comb through my leave-in for even distribution, and finally it’s time to put in a bun. Yes, all of that for a bun! Am I overdoing it?! Help!
