    You wouldn't use the word hands because you aren't using your palms. You're using your fingers like the teeth on a comb, so your first sentence is the correct one.

    Also, there is the term finger-comb. I prefer to finger-comb my hair.

    You can easily see how saying it in your second sentence sounds odd. I prefer to hand-comb my hair. You use your whole hand to hold a comb or brush to do your hair.
