I have really short hair , but in a few weeks it will grow longer and gets tangled ,
What is the best way to detangle hair that is really short ?
I deep condition and use a sulfate free shampoo once a week , i apply leave in conditioner and seal it with olive oil , twice a day and i cowash once or twice a week , in that regimen when is the best time to detangle hair and how often should i do it ?


it will kinda look like this

    Regardless of length you are going to need patience. You should be able to get away with finger combing. Good luck

    I would recommend co washing since u have short hair, you might want to invest in a wide tooth comb.
    Comb with conditioner in your hair, it helps a lot :)

    Do a deep treatment everytime you co-wash or 'poo your hair and a wide tooth comb to detangle wet hair helps alot.

    If knots are an issue, you can use a conditioner like Suave Biobasics as your detangler solution (it has great slip and is only a couple of bucks). Then there's kinky-curly knot today detangler and leave-in... HTH.
    'Poo: Aubrey Organics or Suave Clarifying
    or Liquid African Black Soap (only 4-ingredients ; awesome!)
    Co-Wash: Aubrey Organics or Suave Condish
    Condish: Aubrey Organics or Onion Mask or Yogurt
    DT: Honey + Olive Oil + AO Condish or Yogurt mix
