Keep brushing. When you first take out a setting it can look very curly and even afro. It takes a while for hair to be brushed into smooth waves. As you brush more, hair will fall in line. Brushing may seem to disturb the set temporarily, but will not affect the strength of the curl if the setting is sound.
