Detangling My Hair after months of mourning

I lost my husband 7 months ago. Needless to say my hair has suffered. I have a plan to detangle the mess once I get the energy. My Royal Family 4: Grooming and Detangling Natural Hair: My Detangle Hair Plan I basically wrote out this plan to keep me from being overwhelmed. Natural hair can be saved even when it has been neglected. I have the plan. I know how to fix the situation. I just need the energy.

    I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. One step at a will overcome. You're on the right path of keeping your mind busy and making plans. I wish you all the best and hope your hair gets back to health soon too.

    Sorry for your loss, don't let your hair overwhelm u. Just do one section at a time and use wide tooth comb and a detangler. I suggest trying some braids as a protective style b/c with proper care they can last months. You take care honey and condolences to you and your family

    Can you ask a family member or a good friend to help? The company would be good and I always enjoy someone doing my hair. That might lift your spirits some.

    I am sorry for your loss.

    I wish you some energy.

    I have a Michel Mercier detangling brush (fine hair version), the bristles are designed to flex without breaking, so that the process hurts less. It works for me and my very sensitive scalp.
    3a BSL (usually styled to look 2 b/c).
    Fine, dry, very dense (thinned and I like it). Kinks and fairy knots.
    Allergies, fragrance issues.
    Long term hair dyer - henna and chemical dyes.
    LOC - Not CG

    Currently liking Be Unique (UK made range), Au Naturel, and Curls Unleashed bits.

    I have Mercier one for thick hair. I like it but the bristles bend. It really does work well. Just need to work up the courage.

    I have 4x the hair as most people and my family would help but I am what people once called tender headed. I work better alone, lol.
