Are you using the right tools for detangling natural hair?

If you are a gal with natural hair, you probably spend a lot of time on your hair routine. From washing, to styling, to cutting- African hair care takes time and effort. A big part of this process for many natural-haired girls, is unfortunately, detangling. You know, removing tangles and knots. It’s not the most enjoyable process but with the texture of natural hair, it is necessary. The length, texture and thickness of hair dictate the amount of time and effort needed to remove tangles and knots. As a result, some women can accomplish the task in half of an hour, while for others it may take two hours. There are many tools out there for detangling natural hair, but sometimes these tools can be more harmful than helpful. Let’s take a look at what is commonly used to detangle natural hair.

The need for detangling natural hair:

As you know, the traditional comb has always been the main means of detangling natural hair. However, inventors saw the need to enhance the comb due to the demand for hair detanglers which are designed to manage tightly coiled hair textures.

The Denman brush:

This hair detangling tool functions more like a comb than a brush, and is great at separating small sections of hair. This can be quite useful for some styles and for thorough detangling. However, the cons of this tool are that it can take quite a while to detangle hair with a thicker texture. However, this tool is fairly safe to use and relatively easy.

The Tangle Teezer:

You may or may not have heard of it, but the Tangle Teezer is a popular product on the market which is designed to detangle and smooth out your hair. The only downside, however, is that it has been known to lead to hair breakage in natural hair. If you are using it and have noticed hair breakage, it may be time to try another method of hair detangling.

How to decide?

The choice of how to detangle your natural hair is up to you, but often, a wide tooth seamless comb is the simplest and best option! However, if you choose to use another product such as a tangle teezer, make sure that it is not damaging your fragile African hair.

It is also a good idea to use products such as Easy Waves Pink Oil Moisturizer which will help keep hair moisturized and easy to manage.

    (Misc.) I have long hair- its almost to my butt and stragiht. It tangles very easily and I have to brush my hair before I wash it otherwise I will not be able to get it untangled after I wash it. I used expensive thick conditioners just so that it makes it somewhat easier. but still it would take me at a very long and painful time to finally get my hair smooth.I ordered this and I tried it immediately on my dry hair, that had been brushed earlier, and the brush went thru with ease and the bristles did not get caught and pull my hair hard at all.I then tried it after I washed my hair- without brushing it right before washing it like I normally would- and I had no issues what so ever- it was the fastest and easiest time I have ever had brushing my wet hair, and there was no pain. I was afraid that maybe it wasnt getting everywhere because it just seemed to be working too good, so I took the brush I normally used and brushed it after and it was smooth.Needless to say, I am extremely happy with this brush and I could not be happier.Ohhh I also at the same time bought a detangling comb and that didnt work- it kept getting stuck in my hair.
