Detangling.... How long?

SCarrinSCarrin Posts: 160Registered Users
On average, how long does it take for you to detangle.

Today it took me about 40 mins after I co-washed and prepped each sections for twists. I used a denman brush from Sally's for the first time today and it worked pretty cool.

    Between 20 - 30 minutes for the detangling alone. I don't divide my hair into sections - I just LOAD it up with conditioner and finger detangle, and then use my tangle teezer to catch the shed hairs and smaller knots, mostly udner running water. Then when I add leave-in I finger comb it one more time.....I just really like to be thoroughly detangled. Throughout this process I'll usually add more conditioner two or three times, not counting the leave-in.

    I apologise for wandering in here and commenting...I keep forgetting to look at the forum I am in! ;p I am sure none of you are interested in 3A hair ;p) Sorry for any annoyance!
    Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
    S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
    My hair officially hates protein ;) Once a month is enough!

    Well, before I switched methods it used to take me 20 minutes because I didn't care. Never sectioned, just plopped conditioner on my hair and combed through it. But now since my hair has gotten longer, I've started twisting my hair a lot. That way I don't get as many tangles, and just quickly twist it up after I detangle. Detangling only takes 10 minutes now (if you exclude the twisting afterwards).

    Hmmm I'm clearly doing something wrong because it definitely takes me a good hour to detangle all my hair... =(
    Mostly fine hair, coarse around my edges and nape.
    Definitely high porosity and insanely dense.
    Not so sure on the elasticity, but I don't think I have a very good moisture/protein balance and my hair is ubber dry, so I'm going to go with low... of course I could be very wrong.

    It takes me 40 mins to an hour too. I need to get to 30 mins or less. Are you guys who take less than 40
    Mins finger detangling?

    It takes me about 2 hours but that's because I'm stopping a lot to tend to a 3 & 5 yr old and to watch tv. I could get it done in an hour uninterrupted. I WISH I could detangle in 10 min! My hair tangles soooo easily there is no way that's possible. Finger detangling is out of the question too.

    Takes me 45 minutes to an hour. That's pretty good for me. Used to be about 2+ hours. My hair is super dense and tangles easily so I have be thorough and I braid each section. So one hours is cool with me.

    I find that it's easier for me to detangle when I've had my hair in twists. Whenever I untwist my comb just glides through each section of my hair.

    10 mins average..
    I apply coconut oil & finger detangle dry hair, spritz the ends with water to soften them up and loosen tangles and go through it with my denman. Detangles & removes shed hairs in one step!

    I find that when I dont detangle before washing, the shed hairs & tangles all mat up together & it takes twice as long!

    2-3 minutes. My hair doesn't really tangle. It's pretty short though...between shoulder and apl, when stretched. I wonder if that's the difference.

    Hello, I am new to Naturally Curly. After reading this thread, I tried the coconut oil method to detangle my hair. I've been sick and sweated at night. I have a definite curl pattern, but when it dried after sweating, it was a tangled mess. I altered the method and sprayed water on sectioned hair then applied the coconut oil and detangled. It was easy breezy! I was watching an hour long movie, so I'm not too sure how long it took, but it was easier and LESS shedding and breakage!
    Thanks

    Between 7 - 10 minutes. If I mistakenly use a protein conditioner it may never be truly combed out.....I end up reconditioning with a different conditioner.

    About 15-20 in the shower. My hair is getting longer (apl) so I have to do it in sections, but I have fine hair and about a medium density so I don't have to work as hard. I prefer a paddle brush because it simplifies my life and a good slippy condish.

    barring a disaster with protein I would say 15 to 20 minutes.

    And people in 4a have never been uptight about who posts in here. Actually many of the "regulars" don't have 4a hair.

    It takes me 30 minutes. I wash or cowash my hair in sectioned twists (6). Then I detangle either while conditioning with my tangle wrangler.

    These are my curlfessions

    It takes me anywhere from 5-10 minutes. I detangle in 2 sections with conditioner prior to shampooing. Luckily my hair doesn't tangle badly. My hair is kinky and slightly past my shoulders when in a twist out.

    Do any of you ladies experience a lot of shedding when you detangle when your hair is wet? For me , wet hair with a good conditioner does help , but I shed less when my hair is dry.

    Yep. I feel like i lose twice as much hair when my hair is wet. But also, when your hair is wet it darkens and clings together. Which makes it seem like more. But i do still think i lose more while it's wet.

    I would never attempt to detangle my hair when dry. My hair sheds anywhere from 10-20 hairs per day. I've never been a heavy shedder. I rinse or cowash and detangle my hair every day.
