What is your favorite tool to detangle your #NaturalHair? ⁣ ⁣ Did you know that the way that you detangle can hinders your hair growth? ⁣ ⁣ You should aim for this process to be as smooth as possible and try your best to not rip through the hair as this can cause excessive breakage! ⁣ ⁣ A couple of TIPS to improve your detangling process: ⁣ 🎯Use a conditioner/Deep conditioner with a LOT of slip. Your wet hair is already a lot to handle you don’t want to be dealing with a conditioner that is not cut out for the job. ⁣ ⁣ 🎯Split your hair in SECTIONS for better manageability. I did 4 but feel free to do more or less depending on your hair’s density & length⁣ ⁣ 🎯ENDS FIRST! start detangling towards your ends then work your way up. This will reduce the constant yanking and pulling of the hair as the bottom will already be detangled ⁣ ⁣ 🎯Personally like to start with my fingers while applying the product then go ahead with a wide tooth comb or a detangling brush. This allows me to feel the tangles and work my way through them. ⁣ ⁣ 🎯If a section is giving you a hard time, run it through water and separate the tangle with your finger then a detangling tool. It is very important to make sure that your whole head of hair is detangled. The better job you do every time, lower are the chances of your hair dreading up. ⁣ ⁣

Hey guys! Once I put the baby to bed I finally have a chance to have some "me" time. On wet hair I use @sheamoistureca Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen leave in conditioner as my moisturizer and the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie to seal it in. I like this combo because I get the moisture and shine without the grease and my hair doesn't get weighed down. It's super easy and quick for that low manipulation weekly hairdo or for a typical twist out. ENJOY!

Each of these ladies are Canadian and have something you either need or want. When it comes to our curls, education is key. We must know it and learn to care for it, in order to remove the stigma of natural hair care in our community.

If not for ourselves, then for our daughters.

Let’s have fun this winter.
