I saw this lady on YT recently talk about how she put conditioner in her hair BEFORE she got in the shower to wash it.... I had read about this in the 2nd Curly Girl book and blew it off...cause I have high porosity hair..

Well I decided to try it.. wow..it really works well for detangling to put the conditioner in before you wet your hair.


I can't do the leaving conditioner in with the baggy and all that though.. my scalp will act a damn fool. It likes to breathe.

Ever since that time I generally saturate my hair with conditioner section by section before washing and de-tangle each section.( I have low porosity hair) Then I wash my hair, DC, rinse and use my leave in. The pre-conditioning works wonders for me and I hardly get tangles.
