Detangling process is one of the stages that make wash day an extreme sport, I mean, who doesn’t dread it?. If you read my natural hair tag, you already know detangling is the annoying part of my hair regimen.

It’s annoying but very essential and gets easier with time especially when you learn the art of detangling, products and tools to use. To y’all new to natural hair journey, detangling is simply the process of getting rid of tangles and knots. Let’s get down to detangling simplified.

How to detangle.
Section– I’ll repeat this over and over again, always work with sectioned hair. Section your hair using a rat tail comb of your fingers into 4-8 parts depending on your volume, length and tangles. Clip each of the sections.

I do 4 parts when the tangling is minimal and on those days when I have enjoyed wearing my hair out, over styled it and the tangles are full blown, I work with 8 or more sections. Sectioning makes it super easy since you work with a section at a time rather than having a whole chunk of tangled hair to work through.

Apply your instant conditioner/detangler/oils.
Now that you have dampened your hair, you’ll need a product that will give you a good slip for easier detangling. Use a conditioner, instant detangler or an oil of choice. I have tried using a instant conditioner and olive/castor oils for my detangling which has worked perfect for me.

Detangle– You can detangle instantly or have the products act as a prepoo, let them sit in your hair for a few minutes, hours or overnight like your girl here does. Letting the products sit in your hair aids in proper product penetration to your strands, adds moisture to your hair, makes detangling easier and reduces the stripping effect of shampooing, what I meant to say is the products acts as a prepoo treatment.

Detangling each section at a time and stat with your ends all through to the roots. Separate the tangles and the knots first using your fingers cause fingers are gentle and using fingers reduces breakage. Make sure you’ve detangled the whole length and most importantly gotten rid of shed hair since it tends to tangle and knot with your hair if left.

You can almost detangle by combing through your length with a wide tooth comb starting with the ends going up your length. I would advice you finger detangle first before using the comb to avoid excessive breakage. Clip the detangled section or loosely twist or braid.

Well, I hope you’ve learnt a new tip and your detangling process will get easier. In other news you can ease your detangling process by reducing tangles, knots and wearing protective styles.
