For most of us untangling natural hair is the most challenging part of natural hair care. Although it’s essential to take time to get rid of the knots the task doesn’t have to be that hard. Having the right products and tools is seriously, half the battle.
Rather than using heavy greases with ingredients that only make your hair feel sticky rather than flexible you are better of using a water based leave-in conditioner. A good one like the No More Knots will loosen the knots even before you begin untangling. So just spraying the leave in detangler in your hair will make combing your hair much easier. Then all you need to do is part the hair and use a wide tooth comb to finish the job.
It may seem overwhelming but look at the video. Adenike did thick shoulder length 4C hair in just 15 minutes. You may need practice but after a few times, I am sure you will get the hang of it.
