Every naturalista has had to detangle their beautifully textured tresses… So here are a few tips on the best way to detangle your natural hair in order to cause little or no damage and breakage to your gorgeous strands.
Before we go any further… your hair should always be moisturized with either water (your hair craves this by the way), oil, or conditioner. This will make the whole process easier and minimize friction which is one of the causes of split ends.
Okay now that’s out of the way, before grabbing that comb, run your fingers through your hair to loosen up your hair and just incase you didn’t know your hands are one of the best if not the best tools to use when manipulating your hair… only use your trusty combs if necessary. (less is more)
Tip: When purchasing a comb always look out for the seams on the comb, these can be found on the inner part of the ‘teeth’ of the comb, the seams can catch onto your hair and cause breakage and split-ends.
