  • Detangling??

    Does everyone have to detangle as the hair gets longer? I find that no matter how much gel or curly my hair is at the moment my 3-4 inch hair will easily detangle by using my fingers (rake) with conditioner in the shower with warm water ! Now that I have tried aussie moist as a co wash and KCKT as leave in detangling takes under 2 mins really it's just me raking my curls away ..

    My question Is will it become harder to detangle the longer my hair grows

            For me, it's easier to detangle during my pre-poo. I part my hair into 4 sections, then do 2 twists in each, using a nice amount of Herbal Essences Totally Twisted, then coating the twists with oil. If I detangle during pre-poo, I don't have to do as much work when I actually wash my hair.

            I try to always pre-poo, but if I don't, I just detangle in the shower when I first apply my conditioner (Aussie Moist). I just use a Jibere shower comb, and I comb it with the conditioner, and then again as I'm rinsing the conditioner.

              It really depends on the person and their detangling technique. It only takes me 10-15 minutes to detangle my hair which is about 20 inches.

                Right now I'm in twa land, so I can skip a day or two of detangling. But when it starts to get longer (say 4-6 in.) then I will have to comb/detangle daily. Even so, at any length it has never taken me more than a few minutes to comb. Maybe I'm being rough even with the conditioner in, but I can't see spending more time than that to comb through my hair.

                  I agree with Love.Peace.Curls sectioning the hair in twists to shampoo or condition does make the detangling process easier...Obviously I haven't done it on my hair, lol, but I have on others with long hair and it saves so much more time. Good Luck!

                      If I finger detangle my hair, it will take 2 hrs or longer. If I use a comb, it will take about 45 to a hr. My hair is mostly 4a.

                        I detangle in like 20 minutes but i shouldn't... I'm doing something terribly wrong. I think it's causing me to not retain as much length too... Lots of people with my length hair say it takes them at least an hour. I don't think I'm being careful enough

                          My hair stay in protective styles so I don't have an issue but on wash day It takes about a good 30 minutes and I do not attempt unless my hair is saturated with conditioner and water

                              IDK, I mean I don't feel like I rush through the process or anything. I use a wide tooth comb, I saturate with conditioner & water...I start at the ends and work my way up. I don't lose too much hair...so maybe some ppl just take more time detangling than others.
