What works for me...
--(Finger) detangle w/ oil once a week
--Wash in twisted/braided sections
--Use thick, creamy water-based moisturizers (shaft) and butters (ends)
--Keep hair in stretched styles 24/7 (braid outs, flat twist outs, bantu knot outs, etc)
--Pineapple hair at night
Keeping my hair stretched 24/7 cuts down on tangles for me. I don't re-twist/re-braid/re-moisturize in between washes so pineappling works well for me. I have rarely get major tangles or knots and I've never experienced matting.
P.S. There is no way to *fully* prevent tangles and knots...one can only reduce their occurrence.
