Default Detangling.... How long?

On average, how long does it take for you to detangle.

Today it took me about 40 mins after I co-washed and prepped each sections for twists. I used a denman brush from Sally's for the first time today and it worked pretty cool.

Between 20 - 30 minutes for the detangling alone. I don't divide my hair into sections - I just LOAD it up with conditioner and finger detangle, and then use my tangle teezer to catch the shed hairs and smaller knots, mostly udner running water. Then when I add leave-in I finger comb it one more time.....I just really like to be thoroughly detangled. Throughout this process I'll usually add more conditioner two or three times, not counting the leave-in.

Well, before I switched methods it used to take me 20 minutes because I didn't care. Never sectioned, just plopped conditioner on my hair and combed through it. But now since my hair has gotten longer, I've started twisting my hair a lot. That way I don't get as many tangles, and just quickly twist it up after I detangle. Detangling only takes 10 minutes now (if you exclude the twisting afterwards).

Hmmm I'm clearly doing something wrong because it definitely takes me a good hour to detangle all my hair... =(

Not so sure on the elasticity, but I don't think I have a very good moisture/protein balance and my hair is ubber dry, so I'm going to go with low... of course I could be very wrong.

It takes me 40 mins to an hour too. I need to get to 30 mins or less. Are you guys who take less than 40
Mins finger detangling?

It takes me about 2 hours but that's because I'm stopping a lot to tend to a 3 & 5 yr old and to watch tv. I could get it done in an hour uninterrupted. I WISH I could detangle in 10 min! My hair tangles soooo easily there is no way that's possible. Finger detangling is out of the question too.

Takes me 45 minutes to an hour. That's pretty good for me. Used to be about 2+ hours. My hair is super dense and tangles easily so I have be thorough and I braid each section. So one hours is cool with me.

I find that it's easier for me to detangle when I've had my hair in twists. Whenever I untwist my comb just glides through each section of my hair.

10 mins average..
I apply coconut oil & finger detangle dry hair, spritz the ends with water to soften them up and loosen tangles and go through it with my denman. Detangles & removes shed hairs in one step!

I find that when I dont detangle before washing, the shed hairs & tangles all mat up together & it takes twice as long!
Ive also tried other oils, coconut oil def has the best slip/softening abilities on my hurr

2-3 minutes. My hair doesn't really tangle. It's pretty short though...between shoulder and apl, when stretched. I wonder if that's the difference.

Hello, I am new to Naturally Curly. After reading this thread, I tried the coconut oil method to detangle my hair. I've been sick and sweated at night. I have a definite curl pattern, but when it dried after sweating, it was a tangled mess. I altered the method and sprayed water on sectioned hair then applied the coconut oil and detangled. It was easy breezy! I was watching an hour long movie, so I'm not too sure how long it took, but it was easier and LESS shedding and breakage!
Thanks

Between 7 - 10 minutes. If I mistakenly use a protein conditioner it may never be truly combed out.....I end up reconditioning with a different conditioner.

I am pretty sure she wrote on this forum bc thats her hairtype i would assume her question is universal @ the end of the day we are all natural & experience similar if not same dilemmas. I dont like how were segregated by hair types its so silly. And you give such great advise.

I detangle my hair about once a month and it takes me about 45 minutes. I deep condition first with oil and a conditioner for half an hour.
