Detangling natural hair can be a tough process if you don’t have the right knowledge and tools. It’s also very crucial when it comes to natural hair maintenance. If you’re not detangling your hair properly you can end up with a lot of frustration down the line. I’m going to give you 3 steps for making the detangling process easier for you.
1) Starting with conditioning
It is essential to always start the process of detangling natural hair while you’re conditioning your hair. Depending on the thickness and density of your hair you can use a shampoo brush or your fingers to pull it thru. Always start at the ends of your hair and work your way up. If your hair is super unruly you may want to get a hair steamer to use at home. If you put the conditioner on the hair and then sit under the steamer for about fifteen minutes (without a plastic cap) this will help soften the strands and make the hair easier to comb thru. Once you are finished steaming try combing the hair out starting on the ends and then work your way up. I would like to add that if you’re struggling too much with this process you may need a simple end trim. If you haven’t had one in the last few months, make an appointment with a professional before your attempt this process.
2) Using a shampoo brush
A shampoo brush is an essential tool when detangling your hair. It’s a small, round, plastic brush that can be found at most beauty supply stores. It’s a tool that cost about 3-5 dollars and will make your life so much easier. Always begin with detangling the ends of the hair first, and then proceed to the midlengths and roots. The shampoo brush works best after the conditioner has been applied to the hair. When the hair has been completely detangled with the conditioner in the hair, rinse the conditioner and move on to applying the hair product.
3) Finger combing your product thru the hair
Finger combing is a great way to detangle and style naturally curly hair. I always tell clients not to use fine toothed combs or brushes when detangling their hair. If the curl is pulled too much while its wet, it may loosen up too much, this is how you get an inconsistent curl pattern. Flip your head upside down and pull the hair product thru from roots to ends with your fingers. This is the gentlest way of
detangling and styling the hair. If you skip this process and just put the styling product in the hair without working it thru, you may miss a lot of the hair that needs product. Leaving the look of your hair uneven and unruly in areas.
I hope this discussion helped you with detangling your hair. Remember; if this process seems useless, you may need a simple end trim in order to make your hair more manageable. We’ll see you next time!!!
