Detangling Natural Hair Made Easy

One of the challenges of natural hair is detangling in a very efficient way such that you do not lose much hair from breakage. Removing shed hairs and knots should be the only outcome. However, this is easier said than done.

Techniques are invented and tested to make the detangling process as less traumatic as possible. As always, no two heads are the same and what works for someone may not exactly work for you but may still give you an idea on how to do it when working on your own hair. They say our strands love each other so much such that they always want to hug. And if you keep them hugging for too long, separating them may break them. So that is when we need a very good slip product that can help the separation not to be so traumatic.


This is what I use:


1 or more tablespoons of conditioner
1 or more tablespoons of Organic Coconut Oil
1 or more tablespoons of any detangling oil or hair spray of choice


I mix all these together in a bowl and apply the mixture to the length of my hair. This stuff is amazing. It helps me to detangle with so much ease and very little breakage. It is moisturising too so I leave it on my hair after I have finished detangling and deep condition before I rinse it out.


Do you have any detangling concoctions that you use on your natural hair?
