Matted roots

I dont usually comb my hair except in the shower. But it's been 2 days my roots were matted and my hair was frizzy. I don't know what happened

    I've never heard of that particular issue. How do you cleanse/condition your hair?

    You might want to try sleeping on a satin pillowcase, too.

    I have heard of people having this happen if they dont ever detangle all the way to roots. I dont usually detangle to my roots and not a problem for me but could be something you have to do. My aunt who has a relaxer was in the hospital for a week and couldnt wash her hair and her roots matted. I told her to mix some conditioner and EVOO then put it on her roots and let it sit 20 minutes. That allows it to soften. Then go through it with a wide tooth comb. Worked for her.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    My roots are easy. The ends and middle get matted. I just load them with conditioner and slow roll it. :)

    Matting/tangling is more likely to happen if you are active and moving your hair around. My son had a real problem once when he was doing a car repair. If you are going to be in a position to be rubbing or doing a lot of movement against your hair, it is a good idea to protect your hair. Scarves, turbans, a tight cap, or braids or some type of protective styling can all help to protect your hair.

    If tangling happens, all the recommendations for conditioner, soaking, taking extreme care that have already been mentioned will help.

    My son's hair was so bad that I had to rescue it one hair at a time with a hairpin, hope no one here ever has that extreme a problem.
    Be Happy!
