Have you curly girls ever been frustrated by your tangles? I sure have. It is so easy for the hair in the back of our heads to become knotted. The pain that comes along with vigorously brushing the tangles is annoying. But don’t give up just yet. There are things you can try that will lessen your burdens. First off, I hope you comb your hair! Having curly hair may be challenging sometimes. There are many of us who cannot go one day without combing because our hair turns into brillo pads. I am fortunate enough to have hair that is on the thinner side, therefore I am able to wrap my hair up for a couple of days and not worry about combing. After those couple of days I know my hair will not be too impossible too handle… as long as I have conditioner.
For you curly girls that have a hard time combing through your tangles, I got a solution for you. The best way to comb knotted curly hair is while it is wet. When you brush dry hair you can potentially break hair strands and create more frizz. While your hair is wet, add a generous amount of conditioner and spread thoroughly. There is no such thing as over-conditioning. While the conditioner is in your hair, use a wide toothed comb to brush the knots out. Start from the bottom of your hair and work your way up. Never start at the top. After combing, rinse the conditioner out. If you suffer from severe tangles and conditioning alone does not help, add a leave-in conditioner to your hair. If you are going out, style your hair as usual. If you are staying in or going to bed, leave your hair in a braid.
