So how should finger detangling be done on long hair?

What you need

  • Spray bottle

  • Water

  • Conditioner

  • Hair clip

  • Fingers (of course)

How to do it

  • Fill your spray bottle with water

  • Pour in a few teaspoons of conditioner

  • Shake the spray bottle and soak your hair with it

  • Grab a hair clip and put up all of your hair

  • Let down the lowest section and spray it, rake your fingers through it and work through any tough knots

  • Let down the next upper section and repeat the process; spray it, rake through and work through tough knots.

  • Repeat until all your hair is detangled

This process is better done before your shower. With this process your hair will be conditioned and tangle free before you even shower, which will cut back a lot of time on washing and conditioning.
