Even if you are the laziest of naturals, you're going to rely on a few items to take care of your hair. Since the dawn of time, humans have been using basic tools to make their lives easier. We use them to manage nearly every aspect of our existences, and for those of us living la vida textured, the right tools can mean the difference between a great hair day and one spent hiding under a baseball cap. Proper tools are the foundation for keeping curls, coils, and waves in tip-top condition, especially if you’re committed to the lazy naturals lifestyle. Are you working with the right equipment? Here’s my list of essential natural hair tools.
Tight curls and coils need wide tooth combs to gently detangle and eliminate shed hair. Look for a seamless comb to further protect tender curls. Make sure your hair is wet (with water, a water-based leave-in conditioner, or conditioner mix) before combing through. For more control, divide hair into sections before detangling. Make sure to start at the ends and gently work your way up to the roots.
