In my newest video, I share how to dry detangle relaxed hair in preparation for wash day. I also use the same detangling methods post-wash on damp hair. I am stretching my relaxer indefinitely and not yet sure if and when I will relax. I am currently 61 weeks post and have a lot of new growth present. Therefore, the detangling methods shown within this video are great for detangling transitioning hair as well. The key to success is finger detangling before comb detangling; detangling in small, manageable sections; and, a good detangling spray.
How to Detangle Relaxed Hair [Tips]
- Apply oil of choice to offer slip. I will vary my oils from time to time but I love extra virgin coconut oil because of its benefits to hair in the areas of hygral fatigue.
- Finger detangle to remove as much shed hair possible. This helps to gently remove any tangles there may be as well. Combs tend to rip through tangles whereas fingers are gentle.
- Spray a good detangling spray to hair. I love a few different detanglers:
- My Picks:*
- Comb detangle with wide tooth comb. I use seamless combs for my detangling efforts.
- Use small, manageable sections. Working in small sections will help minimize breakage and frustration!
- As always, patience!
