Should I Or Should I Knot? (Get It? I'm Sorry. That Was Bad.)
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....There was a girl.This girl had no idea how to care for her curls.She hated them, in fact. She would wrestle and battle with the ringlets, trying to brush them into something manageable and slather them in all the wrong products.She eventually gave up and let her hair do it's thing, and she couldn't be happier, but there is one problem.Tangles.Tangles everywhere.I read Curly Girl (if you haven't, go read it now) and I was strictly told to never. Use. A. Comb.But, God, these snarls in my hair are starting to become terrifying.I was wondering if I could use a wide-toothed comb in the shower, hair dripping and covered in conditioner? Not dry, never, but I feel as if this might help the detangling process.
Omg yes, I don't know what I'd do without using a comb at least sometimes. I have really thick hair that'd take forever to finger detangle and so I split my hair in 4 sections in the shower, shampoo and rinse each section. And when I put the conditioner in I slowly detangle each section (turn the water off for this because it may take a while) from end to root. When I get out the shower I keep them sectioned until they dry a little, apply product and then let it all out. I don't end up losing a lot of hair either
Haha can I say I love your style of writing?I've read the Curly girl handbook as well, I'm not sure but I think somewhere in the book they even say if you need to you can use a wide-toothed comb and a loooot of conditioner. Detangling is so important, If I didn't my hair would turn into one big lock.And like Kenali says, sectioning helps a lot! Especially when your hair is shoulderlength or longer.
