Wash Your Black Natural, Relaxed Or Transitioning Hair In Braids And Make Detangling A Thing Of The Past

little-braidsHow to make your weekly washes run like a dream. No more strands in your comb!

If you have curly or kinky hair type, you will be only too familiar with washing and detangling sessions which can sometimes run into hours! Breakage in curly manes will usually occur during combing, brushing, blow drying or any other activity that involves heavy manipulation on the strands.

Many would like to have their hair out majority of the time to show off the length, health or style. However, with weekly or more washes with detangling sessions, length retention becomes more of a challenge and many revert to braids or weaves to keep their length.

Even more so if you are transitioning from relaxed or texturized to natural hair, the challenges are even more pronounced. You are told that you should avoid manipulating your relaxed hair while it’s wet as this is when it’s at it’s weakest but at the same time, you are told not to dare comb natural hair while it’s dry as it causes excessive breakage!

So how do you sidestep the detangling session but still have clean and straight locks? This solution outlined below will be suitable for ladies who would like to keep their hair straight most of the time but refuse to lose hair with every washing session! This can be described as an ultra low manipulation way of dealing with wash days for very easy to none-existent detangling.

First and foremost, you must start with a head of hair that is already relatively straight from the last time you flat ironed, pressed or blow dried your hair. If you are just coming out of a weave or braids then you are out of luck, a regular detangling session is definitely in the cards to get the hair free from knots before your usual straightening method. You can then use the method below for your next wash. This can be used for natural, relaxed, texlaxed or even in transitioning.

Assuming your hair is still relatively straight (you can get a wide tooth comb through it easily with no problems) but you hair is in need of a wash, here’s what you will need:

1. A wide tooth comb
2. About 16-20 rubber bands (ouchless if you prefer)
3. Some natural hair oil


Here’s what you do:

That’s how I wash my daughters hair. It saves times and frustration.

I already started. My hair is detangled before I start washing my hair. I use the Shea Moisture Kids Detangler and it cuts my detangling time down to less than 40 minutes. That helps me cut down on my wash time. Thank you God I am finally getting it. Lol!
