The picx was just to remind you of that animated movie…Its really lovely #smiles. Okay! Back to business.
Tangles are common in mixed-textured hair, for instance, you have stretched between relaxing for about 3-4 months, or you are transitioning.
The roots, as thick as a forest while the rest of your hair is sleek and straight, for one reason or the other, your hair is covered in tangles, and you are at risk of losing half your hair. Fear not!
The solution is just around you….Do I hear an Amen!
Shea butter, yes, raw unrefined shea is just what you need and a little olive oil.
You know, it could be really frustrating; trying to get rid of the tangles without losing all the hair on one’s head.
So here’s the deal;
• Massage hair in parts with leave in conditioner followed by a GENEROUS AMOUNT of shea butter, focusing on the roots and tangled areas. Ensure the hair is well saturated. You may decide to melt the butter and mix with olive oil.
• Leave it on hair and cover with a plastic cap.
• Put it off till you are ready that is, you have a lot of time , you could be listening to an audio file; music or something to motivate you while you detangle. Or even watching TV,
• It will take you a lot of time prolly two hours or more, just ensure you have time.
• If you are tired, You can do half,then cover it again and do the rest later on.
How to detangle
• Start detangling from the tips up to the roots with your FINGERS.
• Instead of pulling it downward, pull sideways like u r separating each strand from the rest. Combs could work later on.
You will lose hair but not much…just to prepare your mind.
What are the functions of shea butter and olive oil in this matter?
• Shea butter will soften and strengthen the hair.
• Olive oil is necessary because, it improves hair elasticity, this will help minimize breakage.
• After the stress you won’t feel like washing, however schedule a time to wash in the shortest possible time to get rid of excess grease.
• Try as much as possible to avoid tangles.
