Hello fam,

It’s been quite a minute! How are you doing? I hope you’re well and in good health. With the lockdown in many cities across the world, a lot of us have no choice but to make our own hair. I have decided to create a couple of explanatory posts and videos to help. You’re welcome *wink*πŸ˜‰

In this video, I’ll show you how I comb and detangle my thick 4c natural hair without it ending in tears. Hallelujah!πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

If I can do it, you can too. I will also outline the steps I took in this post, so that you can learn even if you don’t have sufficient data or internet access to stream the video, so keep on reading.

Here’s the video:

To comb your hair easily and without tears, you will need:

1. A spray bottle

2. A good Leave in Conditioner or Detangler

3. A wide toothed comb

The Process:

Step one: Mix your water and leave in conditioner in your spray bottle

Step two: Separate your hair into different sections

Dividing your hair into sections makes applying the products easier, and it makes the detangling process more effective. The only down side is that you have to repeat the same process over and over again, but I think it’s a fair price to pay to avoid tangles and hair loss πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ.

Step three: Spray your leave in/water mix onto your beautiful hair.

Spray generously and work it into your hair, girl.

Step four: It’s time!!!!!Natural Nimi comb hair
You’ve prepared for it, and now you’re finally ready! Flex your muscles, girl because it’s time to DETANGLE!!!

Start detangling only from the tips/ends of your hair and work upward. I don’t know how to explain more than that, so you might have to watch my video to understand betterπŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

Finally, repeat the process across all the sections of your hair.

And that’s it! You’re done!! Now you can clap for yourself πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ.

NOTE: Detangling your hair is not supposed to be painful. If it hurts, apply more leave in conditioner to it and try again. If you run into any difficult tangles, untangle them with your fingers first.

I am a medical student residing in Lagos, Nigeria. I have worn my hair natural(unpermed) since 2013, and here I share my experiences. I'm not perfect, but I believe that natural is a journey on which we are constantly learning.Β
