Tangled Ends After Washing!

shaneikwashaneikwa Posts: 2Registered Users
I wash my hair every Sunday. Ive recently started to wash my hair in sections because my hair has gotten so thick (4B...I think). I also detangle my hair before washing, using a double wide tooth comb and my spray bottle. Im currently using Curls Cleansing Cream and Coconut Curlada Conditioner. The problem is my ends are ALWAYS tangled after washing. Does anyone else have this issue? Any tips to stop this cause I cant take it anymore. :dontknow:

    i kinda have this problem as well, though not just my ends. do you low poo? i do and i think that its cause the poo washes the natural oils out, cant really be helped i dont think, cause has to get rid of the dirt n that. maybe if you pre poo? i message my scalp with a rosemary oil mixture n that seems to help.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    You could try twisting or braiding after you wash each section or it could be time for a trim.

    Not really sure what "low poo"...havent heard that term. But Curls is supposed to have no sulfates. And I thought my ends were an issue so I did get those trimmed but no bueno. I mught give the pre poo a shot though. Thanks ladies!

    I understand what you mean. I'm transitioning and my hair would be so matted it would take longer to detangle than it would to wash/condition it. I started to detangle prior to washing like you do but I wet my hair and condition it thoroughly and then comb to detangle. It works better for me than the detangling spray and after I wash (and condition again as normal) it is much easier to comb through. Hope it helps!

    A wide tooth shower comb seemed to work for for me on my 3a/b hair. I rinse my hair in the shower and start gently detangling and then wash with conditioner and comb it through to detangle. My hair was waaay easier to detangle afterwards when i was styling my hair. I also kept some conditoner (a tiny bit) in the length of my hair. Its really hard to detangle my hair if it dries even a little bit and using the shower comb first with conditioner really made it alot easier.

    You stated that you detangle before you wash your hair, but do you also detangle while in the shower as well. If you don't, you could possibly just go over your ends while you're conditioning your hair. That might make a difference. Also, do you detangle in the shower by washing your hair in a downward motion?

    detangling in the shower will make a world of difference especially when you hair is getting thicker and thicker and growing as well. first just slather on some conditioner, gently detangle, keep in conditioner and only shampoo your scalp (your hair wont be dry). After this RINSE everything out. leave on some conditioner for a few minutes. as long as you want, you can use this time to wash your body once or twice. then slightly wet your hair again, detangle again and leave some conditioner on. This way your hair from root to tip is always conditioned at all times and never gets tangled. and then your done. this should work for you.

    I agree with sectioning.

    But wish to add that,The shampoo may play a part as earlier stated. Consider a more moisturizing shampoo with slip.
    Elucence for example makes a great moisturizing shampoo that I could even detangle my hair with.
    I only expect my hair to tangle when I'm using a clarifying shampoo.

    Hello

    I have been natural three years with 4a/c hair ( extremely kinky) and tried every product trust me! My experiences have taught me that:

    Shampoo in any form is no good for type 4 hair period, no matter how gentle or sulfate free it claims to be.

    Co washes are a must, suave coconut conditioner is a great and cheap option, I don't detangle until after I have conditioned my hair and about to dry it, I comb as little as possible and use my fingers while cowashing in the shower

    Do not do twist outs on wet hair, will come out frizzy and dry

    I recently purchased the Nexxus pro- mend conditioner and leave in treatment due its claim to fix split ends immediately and I am in shock over how soft and manageable it left my hair immediately! I think type 4hair is highly prone to splits and will make your hair clump together and break off because it's so dry. With this product, it fixes it immediately, and leads to wonderful twistouts,I love the result. Please try it

    I have 4 hair and my hair becomes dry if I don't shampoo every week. Shampoo used to tangle my hair but I learned to prepoo and adjust my shampoo technique so no more problems. I only agitate roots and smooth the rest of the hair.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    Yes avoid shampoos or at least those with sulfate. Google the Curly Girl
    Method for washing hair with silicone free conditioner no shampoo, and only finger combing hair (no Combs or brushes). V05 Moisture milk conditioner (strawberry cream I think) is excellent and dirt cheap. 89 cents to $1. Suave Natural Tropical Coconut and Tressemme Nourishing Conditioner are good too and very popular in the CG (Curly Girl) community. But the book!
