All you need is some Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner. And the tangle teeser. With one touch of water my hair tangles. I loathed the thought of washing it even when I had a perm. The Giovanni allowed me to for the first time in my life to detangle with my hands. I'm talking about from the roots! The tangle teeser is also wonderful. It allows you to detangle from the root with minimal if any breakage. I originally bought this for my natural daughter. Because her hair is super curly and down her back. It worked so well for her that I tried it. Even with bad conditioner it works.
I got teeser from amazon.com. And conditioner from massagewarehouse.com. They actually have free shipping this week on any purchase.
