Natural Hair ABCs : Why Detangle?


When I first went natural, I asked myself this question : is detangling really necessary? I read articles that told me it was and watched videos that illustrated the process of detangling but I just couldn't admit the fact that detangling was an essential part of a healthy hair regimen. Well, the first few months were okay because my hair was still short so I got away with no detangling (at least during a wash). But as my hair grew, I began to understand just how important detangling was. Here are some reasons why detangling should be included in your hair regimen :
- Detangling makes the styling process much easier, in fact, styling without having detangled beforehand   is terrible!

- Stops knotting and thus reduces breakage while styling

- Helps to stretch hair bit ; this makes your styles look neater

These are major reasons why detangling should be included in every natural's hair regimen. In fact, after failing to detangle your hair a few times while washing, the necessity to detangle will become suddenly evident!

Stay blessed and funky sisters!

    Okay lol, My name is Egodi (I'm Nigerian too) a.k.a. CurlyQ (my newly natural hair is the reason for that nickname) and I was wondering if you could help me. I'm so lost on how to properly take care of my hair. Can you give any good tips that an amateur can follow? I just turned 17 and I'm on my own with my hair since my mom won't help. Much love :)
