Tangles

Ok for all those curlies/wavies who manage to get 2nd day hair, how do you keep it tangle free? By the end of the day my hair is alittle tangled and by the next morning it is a tangle mess and I have to either put it up in a messy pony tail or wet and condition it to get it tangle free again. I just picked up a satin cap from my step mom so I'm hoping that will help with the tangles that are caused while I'm sleeping but what do I do with my hair during the day to keep it from getting tangly?

    I've read on the forums that many people use the Slip detangler from [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Curly-Hair-Solutions-Curl-Keeper-p-28.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=curly-hair-solutions-curl-keeper]Curl Keeper[/buylink]. Personally, I haven't tried it so I don't know how it works. My hair tangles easily too. I just try to comb them out with my fingers on the 2nd and 3rd day. Most of the time my 3rd day hair goes up in a pony or a twist!

    I don't do anything. I haven't really figured out what to do other than wash and style everyday, but I'm too lazy to do that so I live with the tangles and frizz. I could finger comb, but that loosens everything, and then I have an overwhelming urge to comb or brush after, so I just try not to go there. That said, I do pineapple at night, so that probably helps some.

    Usually I've got lots of tangles in the morning, but last night I did a variant of the pineapple (3 sections ponytailed, then pulled into 1) and it was less tangled than normal. Plus it had some nice volume in it. Might be worth a shot for you.

    I pineapple at night, but usually at least wet my hair every night due to my workouts (water wash & condish for the most part). Anyway, I alway apply more condish underneath. My hair is fine, so I need extra in that area especially since it's longer.

    Even on my 2nd hair day though...I spray a little filtered water & it seems to reactivate everything, including the condish.

    I'm going to get satin pillowcases soon, but i will say my thread count is 450 & I do think that helps...plus I'm a sound sleeper so no tossing & turning:)
