Step 2: Detangle and Wash

[source]

I realized that I didn't discuss how I detangle my hair in my prior post, so I will briefly discuss that. I NEVER detangle my hair on dry hair. I think it's safe to say, it is impossible. I also do not use combs and have not in about 2 and a half years (maybe longer).


Method:

Detangle
After I have completed my hot oil treatment, my hair is moist and easier to manipulate.
At this point, my hair's already in 4 (or more) sections. I detangle one section at a time by lightly misting one section and detangle with my fingers from the bottom, up. I detangle by separating a section into multiple sections and using my fingers to remove any shed hair. Detangling can be very timely. It is important to have patience with your hair. There should be no snapping, crackling or popping!! 

Shampoo
I shampoo my hair in front of the bathroom mirror. At this point, my hair is still in 4-6 sections. I lightly spray each section with water and use about a quarter-sized amount of shampoo per section.  I shampoo my scalp by applying the shampoo to my scalp and gently massaging my scalp with my finger tips, never using my finger nails . I then apply conditioner to my HAIR. This prevents my hair from over drying when rinsing. Once all sections are completely washed, I thoroughly rinse each section in the shower one at a time.

Benefits:
I find that beginning my shampoo process out of the shower and in front of the mirror allows me to see exactly what I am doing. I also use better portions of product and water. I find this method to be very efficient and saves me a lot of time.
