Detangling 101 for Natural and Transitioning Hair

One of the most labor intensive aspects of the natural hair journey is detangling. It can also be the most confusing. Let's go ahead and break it down:

Hair Assessment
When trying to decide the best course of action for detangling your hair, it is always best to start with an understanding of how your hair behaves. Without getting too complicated, ask yourself is your hair:
  • curly, or tightly coiled?
  •  transitioning or completely natural?
  • incredibly tangle prone when loose in water?
  • weak, brittle, or easily broken?
Those four points will help you understand not only what tools will likely work best for your hair, but also what products and methods.

  1. Good post,

    With detangling hair there are so many different types and textures. Finger detangling is good, but it must be done in conjunction with the right products and combs. If the hair gets very tangled, matted or knotty-conditioner can’t even help. But not matter what you can not be lazy when it comes to detangling.

    Using water & vinegar on tangled matted hair is not always the best option. Dry detangler products like the Take Down Remover cream soften hair immensely

    and make it easier to save you hair and time.
