Finger detangling has helped my hair grow to the point that it is no longer practical. Help?!

I've been purely finger detangling for about 18 months now and my hair has definitely reaped the benefits - it is thicker than ever and approaching mid back length. This blessing is also a curse - due to the thickness and length it's becoming unpractical to solely FD anymore, it takes forever! What else can you suggest for 3c4a fine, low porosity, highly dense hair to cut down detangling time without damaging my hair?

A lot of us curlies would kill for thick, long hair like yours. But I can understand your frustration. I would suggest a trim or the big chop, and a generous amount of deep conditioning and repairing oils.
