    Posted: Oct 28 2011 at 4:55am
I need some SERIOUS help with my hair. I took braids out of my hair today, and my hair was nice and soft. I washed my hair and DC, but when I rinsed the conditioner out, my hair was terribly matted and tangled. I have no idea what to do! I put Roux Porosity Control conditioner in my hair to see if it will help detangle. I will keep it in my hair overnight. I really doubt it will do much though, because my hair is SO matted. If it doesn't work, what can I do?? There's no way I can detangle this mess with a comb. What does my hair need (more moisture?)?? I haven't had this problem since I was a child. Please help! Thank you.

First don't worry, it can be undone. Something similar happened to me and I did the following - I don't know what did the trick
 
1. I used my combination of oils - olive, JBCO, Sunflower, etc to soak the hair. Really saturate it.
 
2. without washing out the oils I saturated the hair with conditioner with slip - silicon mix and Tresseme. I put so much in there that my whole head was white. If it started disappearing I put more.
 
3. After letting it sit for a little while I started using my fingers ONLY to gently detangle from the ends. NO COMB or BRUSH. I started with a little section and worked my way from the ends to the roots of each section.
 
4. After each section was detangled I lightly twisted it - making sure it was still saturated with the conditioner.
 
5. After detangling my whole head I rinsed out the entire mixture because I could not find my comb BUT I recommend using a wide teeth comb and gently combing from ends to roots to remove the shed hair.
 
You can do it. Just don't let frustration build.

you should have detangled before you washed your hair.all you can do now is let the deep conditioner sit for 3 hours then finger detangle first then perhaps a tangle teaser and a detangling double teeth comb

All of this and remember to TAKE YOUR TIME! I cant stress that enough. the last thing you wanna do in a moment of frustration is rake through your hair and rip it out...major set back! If you can, grab a chair and set infront of your mirror with some tea to sip on and take your time detangling. Good luck and update us when you are done.
 
eta: Oh yes one other thing that helps me after the dc of oil and conditioner is an ACV rinse...make my hair just lay down and behave...hth

Thanks so much ladies! I did the oil w/ conditioner mix.Luckily for me, my MIL detangled it for me. All the matting & tangling came out, and I didn't lose any hair. Thank you!!

@Eboni, my hair was not tangled before I washed it. it tangled when I conditioned it. That's why I was so confused. I dont know why that happens to my hair.

It matted up because you probably didn't remove all of your shed hair...

that is a crucial step after removing any kind of old style...

When I went thru this I sprayed a bottle of hair detangler on my hair, and when I said sprayed a  bottle, I SPRAYED A BOTTLE!!! let that sit while the conditioner is there too and gently detangle like everyone said

Buy you some kinky curly knot today and seperate your hair with your hands. See if that works.
