Detangling, before or after shampoo?

Detangling is important but it can get a whole process for some wavy and curly heads.

With these tips detangling will be an easy and fast(er) job to do!

Detangling your hair before you shampoo can be a real asset. Part your hair in 4 or more parts and gently use your fingers to detangle (a wide tooth comb is also great) but don't touch a smaller comb just yet.

You can also do this during a pre-poo treatment which i highly recommend since a lot of people are not a fan of dry detangling, but using natural oils will help you get rid of knots without having to make your hair fragile with water. Yes hair is most fragile when it's wet!

Tangled/matted hair can get worse when wet from shampoo or water! Also shampoo can create the tangles so it's best to detangle before with your fingers some oil and/or a wide tooth comb and after you shampoo with a normal comb or your fingers ofcourse.

My favorite pre-poo oils:

  • Coconut oil
    This can help prevent a dry, flaky scalp and dandruff, as well as split ends and hair breakage.
  • Shea butter
    It softens dry brittle hair and repairs split damaged ends as well.
  • Olive oil
    high in antioxidant content and it helps maintain scalp and hair health. It prevents the hair from cell damage and nourishes and conditions the hair at the same time to improve its quality.
