The Detangling Blues

Is your child’s Black hair intimidating you?

You are not alone. Parents with Black children face many challenges in giving them the best hair care possible. Especially when it comes to detangling. Hoping you won't damage the hair, hearing your child cry in pain during the process, or being able to style it correctly are worries that will keep you from embracing the knowledge needed to maintain your child’s hair. Just remind yourself that as you practice, you’ll get better. Here are some tips to help you with this process: Using hair products that are moisturizing and hydrating (shampoo, conditioner, detangler, and oils) will make the combing process take less time. Always saturate the hair with conditioner and a detangler before attempting to comb through the hair. The easiest way to detangle thick, Black hair is by parting the hair down the middle and making 2-3 separate sections on either side of the head. This will give you more control, having small sections to detangle at a time (if the hair is short, you will skip sectioning the hair). DETANGLING GUIDE: 1. Start in the back of the head, detangling each section and clipping it down as you go to the next section. Stock up on hair clips! The best comb for detangling is a “detangling comb”. 2. Start combing the ends and working your way up to the scalp until all the tangles are gone. 3. Holding the hair at the scalp in your hand while making a fist before you start combing will keep you from pulling the hair at the scalp so that it doesn’t hurt as much. Notice I said “as much”…Some believe that detangling doesn’t have to hurt. That’s easy to say when it’s not your head. LOL!
