Naturally curly, kinky hair is beautiful but it isn’t so pretty to the touch when knots and tangles take over when you’re trying to put your hair in a desired style. Natural haired ladies tend to experience matting, single strand knots, and tangles more often than women with looser textured hair due to all the twists and turns our hair naturally makes as it grows. Although knots and tangles are not totally avoidable, here are three ways to help relieve your hair of the snags that keep you from having a stress-free curl maintenance experience.
1. Wide toothed comb – When you have heavy tangles, start with damp hair and begin combing with your wide toothed comb starting from the ends and working your way up. The wide teeth on the comb produce less stress on your hair so that they can unravel on their own.
2. Finger detangling – Using your fingers to detangle your damp curls allows you to easily find tangle and snags. This allows you to work through them with care instead of using a tool to force your hair to be combed out. Finger detangling also encourages less breakage.
3. Detangling Conditioner – A detangling conditioner can be used to loosen your hair of knots and tangles. Keep the detangler in for at least 15 to 20 minutes and use a wide toothed comb for best results.
