After years of wearing shoulder length relaxed texture weave, I've ventured over to body wave.  I recently had two new bundles (20” and 24”) of body wave hair from Her Imports installed, along with some shorter hair I’d gotten from them a couple months ago.  The shorter hair I had before was great--but this time, I’m experiencing some tangling.   When the hair is curled, the curls mesh together (kinda web-like…I hope that makes sense).  The tangles aren’t bad—I can run my fingers through them without much resistance--but I’m used to going most of the day without a brush, and just some quick finger combing.  Last night I re-washed and conditioned the hair thinking it was just dry, but today I’m still having an issue with it.  It seems like it’s a little less of an issue, but it’s still bugging me.  I don’t think it’s a “bad batch”, because I’ve had bad batches of hair before, and this hair isn’t behaving that badly.  Even as I try to take pictures of it, I can’t capture a picture of how it’s tangled, because it doesn’t LOOK that bad--but I know it ain't right!!!  

Do you think this means the hair is dry, and I need to try a deep conditioner?  From reading through the posts I think that may be it, but I wanted to ask.

ETA:  This is URGENT!!  I am going to Hawaii next week and Myrtle Beach the week after I return, and I simply CAN NOT carry a paddle brush everywhere I go lol.  I need help, quickly!!

Hmm, I wonder if it's the cuticles being stuck open causing this issue. If I were in your shoes, I would definitely try to DC with something like silicon mix & then use an ACV mix as a final rinse.

Longer hair will have more tangles. Curly and wavy hair acts different than straighter textures. It likes to clump together and join up with its neighbor. The kinkier it is, the more it will do this. Are you sure it is not just doing what curly hair does? To me, curly hair is bad when it starts to make a big ball at the back of your neck. My curly hair does joins together with its neighbors but it still lays flat if that makes sense. To me, that just comes with the territory.

I had actually thought about that Confused
I started with 16/18/20 and that was fine.  I ended up cutting that, and the next time used that hair, along with some 24" straight hair that I had in my stash.  I may not have had any issues last time because it was straight hair on the bottom layers.  I do think it's dry--but I also think it could just be the nature of the hair.  Now that I think about it...this is exactly why I switched to straight hair years ago Ouch.  I prefer my hair low, LOW maintenance.

Curly hair can be low maintenance too. All I do with my hair is cowash it, condition it than finger detangle it with deep conditioner. That is it. I only style it when I wash it.  However,my real hair is curly and I wanted it to mimic my own hair. I was not going for perfect frizz free ringlets. All the stuff that everyone else doens't like,the  frizz and the webbing and the chunky curls, is what makes it look real and natural in my opinion. When I see anyone with perfect hair, it screams weave to me.

LoveLace posted a great solution in another thread on how to deal with tangles (stiff, clumping hair). ACV rinse and then soak in hot water, Epsom salt, and conditioner overnight. I tried it and it worked wonders. After I rinsed the hair out from the overnight soaked I followed another members receipt for a deep condition for an hour: Honey, olive oil and egg yolk. My sister's hair did not have any issues after those two processes.

Friday night I did a hot oil treatment, DC'd with silicon mix, and finished up with an ACV rinse.  My hair isn't totally tangle free, but its doing much, MUCH better. I went out yesterday and ended up in some candid photos--my hair looked amazing, and I hadn't brushed or combed it in hours.  Thank you all for your help!!!

Glad your hair seems to be acting better. I just wanted to add that whenever I have had hair act like this (and I have had many) it has been a 'form' of bad hair. It's not so bad that you cannot wear it, but it's bad enough that you notice it's not 'good.' LOL. The only thing that seems to work permanently is a bleach bath (which I have done on the ends WHILE I was wearing it). Anytime I have to specifically break out deep conditioners for any hair means the hair is not up to par.
