How do you guys prevent your hair from tangling?

Like Tree1Likes

To prevent tangles I wash my hair in sections. I also "set" my hair in braids or twists before bed and sleep with a satin cap. If I get a tangle in between wash days (I detangle on wash days) then I use aloe vera gel to smooth out the tangle/knot. Aloe Vera gel works like a charm for me!

Uh, so I googled "biosoftening treatment" and no thanks! It's just a texturizer with a creative name.

So what is this biosoftening treatment? Is it a chemical? What does it do besides heal the blind ?

Top the OP -- For me it's mostly about the conditioners I use to co-wash and to detangle/moisturize; they have to seriously slippery and detangling. I detangle only in the shower with tons of detangling conditioner. I rarely need to comb my hair to detangle and I never brush. At night I put my hair into a pony puff or do large twists on dry hair, smoothing a cream into the ends. If your hair is not long enough for one you can do several pony puffs or smaller twists.

so what does biosilk do? would it do anything for my 2a/b/c wavy hair? seems like it wouldnt but i quite lurrveee the sound of zero-tangles
Whenever I wash my hair, (co wash, shampoo ect) I twist it, this prevents split ends, single strand knots and tangling. I have to keep my hair twisted so that it is somewhat stretched and I usually untwisted it most days and style :-)
I usually dont have a problem with my hair tangling especially since it is still relaxed (for the most part).

But if I do encounter any kind of tangles, I start detangling from the ends using a wide tooth comb and gradually work my way up the hair shaft. That helps to untangle faster and doesn't stress out the hair as much as starting from the root does.
