Washday blues…ugh! They will have you cursing for sure. We love our curls, coils, and waves but sometimes we get tired of the extra work many of us face during washday.

Detangling
For many of us, it might as well be a four letter word. Some of us avoid it until our hair is on the brink of disaster, while others may do some form of it a few times a week or even daily.

I realized that because I had the faux locs in for quite a while, after taking them out (and not detangling it for a few days after that), I had developed some major kinks that finger detangling alone was not able to remove. With the length and amount of my hair, I had to go back to my neglected faithful combs. If you ever fall into a hot tangling mess like I did, remember:

A Natural Hair Detangling Tip- Basically, Use All The Conditioner.

re-post!

Hola Chicas!

Like me,  my sister, Syl, has been natural all of her life but had mostly worn it straight until recently. While we have a similar curl pattern, her density is friggin' bananas.  Like, she basically has no access to her scalp.  The 'wash day' struggle is real, especially the detangling process.  Like many of us, she stays pushing it off 'til the day after, the day after tomorrow and she's pretty much not here for the finger detangling.
