You want to detangle type 4 hair without losing a butt-load of locs? Well, you gon' learn today. (Kevin Hart's dad voice)
Let's keep it real, we work TOO DANG HARD at growing hair to start tossing buckets of hair down the drain from a simple wash day detangling session. Bump all that...
So this BlackHairOMG spotlight is on a little-known YouTuber named Knarlei. She's going to show you some of the things she wishes that she knew about detangling her type-4 hair when she first started as a natural.
As you probably already know, proper detangling is key to keeping your hair healthy and happy.
Admittedly, type-4 hair can be more high-maintenance because it's so tightly-coiled that each strand just wants to hug each other which sounds cute but can be extremely annoying when you would like more OBEDIENCE from your strands, lol.
In the video below, Knarlei makes sure that you're using the right comb for detangling TRULY kinky hair, This is very important.
You also learn how to....
- Properly section your hair.
- Avoid a messy cleanup of hair afterward.
- Not wash your hair all "wild"
She definitely recommends that you use a long toothed comb because it just makes detangling so much faster, it cuts down a lot of extra time on wash day.
If you can't shorten your detangling session, you can make your wash day a lot shorter.
