Hi, I have Queens Hair Products hair and it's going on strong, but it tangles at the nape. I know it's because when I received the hair, the 18 in bundle(my longest) was really dry and the ends were fried looking with split ends. Now it tangles at the nape and i don't know how to fix it. It's only that bundle and it's always dry back there. Any suggestions?

I may also be your scarf or coat causing it.....its the rubbing...you may need to pintail it to avoid the friction.

The tangling happens after my hair is dry after I've cowashed it. It's like the rest of my hair is moisturized but the back is dry and it is lifeless and starts to tangle and shed, but ONLY the back. Confused

puts a coating on the hair so it will behave. if a seller is selling slightly iffy hair they use silicon to make the hair look and act right, that is why in most cases after a few shampoos the weave starts to  turn on you because the coating they used is washed away.

This conditioner is GREAT for kinky/curly or afro/curly hair! It retains the curl pattern .. but it moisturizes and loosens the curls so they don´t pack up on you and get hard/dry/tangle. This will cause it to break off etc.
 
You have to handle the curls carefully/gently/like fine lace .. do not pull/tear/rip the curls in any way .. or you will damage the hair shaft so the curls start to die... 
 
I wear kinky/curly lace wigs - the BIG afro look - and this product is part of my staple of products. :)

Yes, it's the rubbing from the collar of your blouse or coat or winter scarf. You need a 'leave in' conditioner like Devacurls all over .. ALSO every day.
 
I place extra Devacurl 'One Conditioner' on my nape and back so .. so that I can wear my winter wraps and step out into the COLD and it does not dry out my hair so much.

Co-wash, deep condition, airdry about 60-70% then put in Coconut oil, then finish airdrying completely.  

Worked for me when I bleached my extensions platinum blonde ( and I mean the platinum-est of them all ). My nape felt like straw because it was hard to get back there when washing in my sink. Girl I had to turn my head ALL the way and was finally able to get a good wash, even though I wet up everything. Now it's conditioned and moist like the rest of the hair.

Then again, I also used Organix Keratin Oil Conditioner (in the raspberry bottle). God's gift, plus the smell lingers after a few days & it smells so good.

Thanks for all the input! I just took out the last track and did a deep condition and I will put it back in to see if there's a change.
