Today I just wanted to share with you some tips on how to properly detangle your hair without getting breakage.
When I first went natural, I didn't know how to properly detangle my hair, I would just rake the comb through until all the tangles were gone and most of my hair was left in the comb or brush.
Once I finally started taking the time to detangle my hair, my hair was so much more manageable, and I didn't have any breakage which resulted in hair loss.
Detangling On Wet Hair-
Most of the time I am detangling on wet hair, because I have just finished washing it, but you can do what ever works for you.
I start off by sectioning my hair into about 4-8 sections, the more sections the quicker it is to detangle.
Once that is sectioned off I apply some more water to my hair using my spray bottle, and then I go in with my deep conditioner, making sure that my hair is fully coated. Once coated I start to slowly finger detangle my hair, and when ever I come across lots of tangles or knots I add more water and more conditioner to help slip the tangles right out.
Detangling On Dry Hair-
When I am detangling on dry hair, I pretty much do the same thing. I make sure that the section of hair that I am working on is saturated with water and the I start to detangle. Normally I just use plain water, with nothing else on my dry hair, but if I notice it is a bit dryer then I will add some conditioner to it.
