In 4 steps, I share how to detangle matted hair after wearing braids, without causing damage or breakage to my natural hair.
These steps help me to retain length and to maintain healthy hair after protective styles, such as cornrow braids. For successful results, each step in my detangling process is just as important as the next one. I hope that these steps are beneficial to anyone who watches and please SHARE, if you think this video will help your friends and family.
I mixed together a few things that I had at home, nothing fancy (just random ingredients that are also found in some store bought natural products
✔Raw Honey (moisture)
✔Oils (reduce friction)
✔Slippery Elm Bark (cut & sifted) (“slip”)
- I wore a wig while wearing the cornrow braid pattern, no sew-in or crochet braids were installed
- I re-dipped the towel twice (every 30 minutes) while I did the DIY hair steaming.
- ‘How Long?’ is the most frequently asked question Answer: I left those braids in WAY LONGER than 2 months
