How to properly detangle/ ultimate detangling steps.

  • Work with sections. First, section into smaller parts. Detangling smaller sections is easier and not as time consuming.
  • Start with damp hair. Spray water on your hair until damp.
  • Add a conditioner/ detangler with a good slip to smoothen the tangles.
  • Start detangling from the ends to the roots with your fingers. Don’t snap off the tangles, slowly separate the strands from the tangle.
  • Comb with a wide tooth comb from the ends to the roots of each section then run it through your entire length. You can also use a detangling brush to detangle.
  • Twist / braid or clip the detangled section and repeat the same for all other sections.
