I have that issue, my hair can do pretty good upto 3rd day hair. if I try to take 4th day or 5th day hair, its tangly city, and I stand in the shower 30mins trying to get through the tangles!!

Also, as much as I love to wash my hair every 3 days, I dont have the patience and it takes about a day for my hair to dry. Its like I get good hair days from 2nd day on if that makes sense. So I cant wash my hair frequently, such a pain especially with hip length hair

So what I do is -on the 4th day, I take hand full of Suave conditioner and some oil(cocunut or Olive) and slather it on my hair, (not rake through) then braid it or Bun it.

This gives my hair the moisture it needs and doesnt get super tangly.

sometimes, the evening before I wash I detangle dry hair with cocunut oil. I shed very few this way than detangling in the shower

Hope this helps
