How to Wash Relaxed Hair [Tips]
Because I have so much new growth present, I wash my hair in braids. My wash day regimen is great for relaxed hair that tangles or transitioning hair with multiple textures.
•Pre-Poo Is a Must! Pre-pooing offer many benefits to the hair and should not be skipped, especially when deep in a stretch. Applying an oil of choice to the hair can double as a pre-poo and a detangler. Oil offers much-needed slip for finger detangling and comb detangling.
•Finger Detangle First! Always start your wash day by finger detangling to remove as much shed hair possible before introducing a wide tooth comb to the hair. Combs have a tendency to rip through tangles whereas fingers tend to have more of a gentle approach to removing shed hair and tangles.
•Detangling Spray for the Win! Always use a good detangling spray to help address stubborn tangles.
•Work Smarter Not Harder! Working in small, manageable sections will keep breakage to a minimum. Working in too large of a section will have you forcing the comb through the hair and tackling tangles without care.
•Braids/Ponytails! Using braids and ponytails on wash day keeps the hair tamed and neat which keep tangles to a minimum. Allowing my hair to remain loose while washing result in knots, matted sections and tangles. If you struggle with the same, try braids or ponytails.
