Help immediately. Detangling/combing after braids
I just took my hair out from cornrows and I now need to relax it again. My hair was in cornrows for a few months, I don't know exactly how long. Maybe 3-5 months. That's also when I last relaxed my hair. My mother uses the kids relaxer on me. Before my mother relaxes my hair I need it to be completely combed out. I want my hair to already be combed out by the time my mother does it. This is because my mother combs by sticking the comb close to the roots and pulling. It hurts A LOT. My hairdresser does the same thing before braiding, except with a hot comb and it hurts 10 times worse if that's even possible. So how can I comb out this hair without it hurting?
