How to De-tangle Natural Hair

Today's tip of the day is how to de-tangle natural hair. This method is a little time consuming but works! 

Step 1: Wash hair with product of choice ( see below for product recommendations)
Step 2: Apply a de-tangling conditioner. ( DO NOT rinse out !)
Step 3: Sit underneath a dryer or steamer( which can be pretty expensive) with cap for 10 to 15 minutes to soften hair

This is a picture of the steam dryer. website for purchasing or more information provided below

Step 4: part hair into 4 sections two at the top of the head and two at the back

This is not my hair! I found this picture online to give you an idea of how to part your sections!

Step 5: While conditioner is still in hair use a paddle brush (see below) to comb 1 section into smaller sections

This is an example of a ceramic paddle brush

Step 6: While conditioner is still in hair, after section has been brushed out, Twist large section into 4 to 6 ponytail twist.

This is not my hair! this is a picture i found online to give you an idea of how to twist your hair! please make your twist smaller than the ones in this picture maybe about 3 twist per one twist in this picture

Step 7: Repeat step 5 and 6 for other 3 parted sections
Step 8: Wash out conditioner while hair is still in pony tail twist
Step 9: Untwist Hair and dry
Step 10:Style as desired

Final results! soft, manageable, natural hair!

As stated above here is a list of products that I believe  are good for de-tangling hair.
