Tip 2: COMB IN SECTIONS!!!!! I can not stress this enough. My heart just breaks every time I see friends and family combing their hair in one go and then blaming all the shed hair and pain on their having natural nappy hair. No, you have to make small-to-medium sections in your hair and then you can comb it.
Tip 3: Only Comb Your Hair When it’s Damp. Again, love yourself! Don’t comb your hair when it’s dry because that will cause breakage. Spritz some water or a mixture of water and oil from your spray bottle at a distance from your hair, or apply a moisturizer of your choice ( I use a leave-in-conditioner ), and then proceed to comb.
Tip 4: Comb from the Tips/Ends of your Hair to the Roots. This just makes life alot easier.
Tip 5: Finish Section by Twisting or 3-Stranding. When you’re finished combing a section either twist it or 3-strand braid it in order to prevent shrinkage. I personally twist it because when I 3-strand, my hair gets even more tangled, but when I twist my hair, it maintains it’s softness.
Bonus Tip: Fingerdetangling. Try softening up your hair with your fingers first, and then comb, it causes less shedding and makes combing softer.
