have you tried smaller sections? My son's 4c and i handle his hair in sections not much larger than maybe the diameter of a silver dollar. any bigger and it's asking for trouble. also, i start by finger detangling, and then i switch to either a med. tooth comb or i use a soft baby brush or a hard bristle brush to follow up very gently over the ends to further detangle, and then i twist each tiny section up before moving on, because otherwise, it will end up tangled again. here's an example:
his hair is easy to detangle with the right technique, but it just takes more time.

Hi Majestye  just be sure you use a wide tooth comb, and wet your hair then apply the As I Am Coconut Co wash. Then I would use a plastic cap, I would wait at least 20 minutes or longer. For the detangle take it from the ends,and work your way up to the scalp. You should see a difference keep me posted.Smile

Hi Prelle64... I will definitely try those items. I am a PJ too...seems I just can't find the right mix of products that works for me. It gets so bad, I just hate washing my hair because I fear all the hair in the sink or on the comb!

Thanks NARSAddict...I do detangle before I wash (if I don't whooo what a mess!), then I wash in 4 sections and I don't scrub I wet and run the shampoo down from scalp to ends, much like I would a weave. Interestingly enough, during the wash, it's ok. It's during the conditioner phase that it begins to get unruly, especially after I rinse the conditioner out. I don't deep condition often at all.

I'm beginning to think I need to deep condition and moisturize more often and either do an oil rinse and/or ACV for porosity.

Do you detangle your hair before shampooing and do you shampoo your scalp in section?  Also do you only massage the shampoo into the scalp and not muss too much with your hair? Maybe you should pre-detangle your hair, section it, and shampoo your scalp by sections and then rinse your hair of the shampoo by letting the force of the water rinse away the shampoo from your scalp and let the suds travel down your hair.  Maybe that will help.  Also do you deep condition your hair often?  Maybe that will help.

Hi 
 You can try As I Am Coconut CoWash works wonders on my hair. Also kinky curly knot today shampoo and conditioner. Take your pick. Cost wise use As I am first but if all else fails kinky curly products.
P.S. i'm a product junkie in rehab lol....Embarrassed

Hi All,

This is my issue...I wash my hair, suffer through detangling one section (I normally do 4 sections) and pin it up.  Then I do the next section, then the next.  By the time I go back to the first section, it is hard and starts to matt again. Even just for me to braid it, it wraps around itself.  

I hate washing my hair because of this issue.  There is one section in the back, center of my head that tangles horribly at the roots.  I used to use Cantu Break Cure to help with detangling, but they stopped making it and I haven't found a good replacement.  I'd love to go fully natural, but it's not an option with this tangling issue!

I have 4a/b texlaxed hair, use Nupur henna to naturally color my hair (those grays that are popping up). I didn't used to have so much tangling and hard hair before hennaing and when I was fully relaxed.  I henna about 2-3 times a year, and texlax about 3-4 times a year.  I now use Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner which helps a bit.   Thinking about this now, I'm sure the henna has something to do with it and I need the right mix of products.

 What can I do, to detangle and leave my wet hair soft?  I appreciate any help you can give.  TIA!
