Hair Obstacles - Tangles

Tangles are a Big Issue here are 5 tips that will help you cut down those tangles!

Detangling hair Thoroughly - Wet hair loaded with conditioner & a wide tooth comb is the best way to detangle your hair. I find that washing my hair in the shower is the best, plus its less of mess then in the kitchen.

Removing all shed hair - When you detangle its important to remove all shed hair. This hair can create the tangles and knots that you do not want. So remove them from your hair, hands and comb.

Section Hair - When washing, conditioning etc... make sure your hair is in sections. This makes your hair easy to manage and will cut down on tangling, this is when your hair is wet and when its dry for styling.

Wearing Protective Styles - Tuck ends in, this will protect them.

Take your time and be gently - Always comb from tip to root, gradually making your way up the root. Don't rip through your hair, only style, wash, condition when you have sufficient amount of time to dedicate to it. Do not rush.

Upclose in Texture

Conditioner OVERLOAD! Last night I washed my hair with my one of my "Loves" Aussie Moist. I have a liter bottle that I picked up from Target for $5.00 a long time ago and it is still very full, even though I use a good amount of it for Co-washes and detangling. Any who, I wanted to show you my texture up close, since I have not been able to capture it very well. My texture starts loose and then gradually gets tighter, you can see this in the last picture. The curls are very small.
Personally, I am not really into "curl typing" because I have so many textures or curl types in my hair. If I use a product for one type it may not work for the other sections of my hair. I have found that since I went natural my texture has slowly but surely changing. My whole texture was much looser, and now it has curled a little tighter. I think this would have to do with the serious limit of heat and protective styles. My hair is GROWING GROWING, this is so exciting, just imagine the length for the length check in SEPTEMBER! Cant Wait!

Elongate your Twist outs

Twists outs are a cute style.  Small twist can create a beautiful deep wave, but your hair seriously shrinks up in length and in fullness. Shrinkage is not a favorite of most naturals. So how do you stretch out those cute twist outs? Unravel all of your twist. Take 4-5 pieces of hair and twists them into a Bantu knot. Do this through out all your hair. The twisting of the Bantu knot will elongate and preserve your twist outs AND give you a little curl on the ends. I tried this during the week and loved the results! Try using a Bantu Knot to elongate your next style :)
