How do i detangle very short hair ?

And How many times a day should I use a Leave in conditioner ? Im planning to purchase shea moisture leave in conditioner , what should i do if my hair feels dry hours after i apllied the leave in conditioner ?
Hi Dragonwell...

is your hair at your ears, neck, or a bit longer? Do you have enough to make a small braid or twist? Not sure what you mean by "medium short".

With 4a/4b hair, I think it helps if your hair is thoroughly saturated with water and a very rich conditioner that gives it good "slip" when you detangle...that will make it less painful to comb out. I recommend a deep conditioner or Dominican conditioner, because these are the for detangling purposes and just general softness.

Maybe you know this already, but it also helps to comb very gently with a wide-tooth comb and keep a spray bottle filled with water on hand to dampen your strands when can also add a bit of oil if you wish.

I've never tried Shea Moisture products, but I hear good things, esp. about the Coconut Styling Milk and the Curl Smoothie. I'm not sure how many times a day leave-in conditioner should be used, but maybe you can experiment to see what works for you. Some of the others here can advise you on that better than I can.

It can be beneficial to take a supplement like biotin if you want to grow long, healthy hair...and eat as healthy as you can. Lots of dark green veggies, fish, chicken, drink water, etc. Invest in a soft brush or a Denman brush.

Hope that helps and good luck in your journey to beautiful hair!
