It was only two years ago that I entered the natural hair arena once and for all. I had played with the notion of having natural hair for quite some time. But after a few months being natural, I would go right back to applying relaxers and eventually repeat the process all over again.
One of the biggest issues I hear in regards to natural hair is detangling, shedding and hair loss. It’s enough to drive anyone insane. Detangling my hair at it’s longest took roughly 15 minutes and I would always end up with a pretty decent ball of hair on the counter. This got me thinking- what can I do to have the flyest fro on the block, without losing my hair, losing my sanity, and clogging the drain? So I came up with three essential tips to reduce shedding for naturalistas like myself.
- Comb less. Now this does not mean stop detangling, it just means reducing how often you comb your hair. Protective styles are a great alternative to looking your best, while reducing how often you have to comb your hair.
- Get a protein treatment
- Find the best detangler- You can find this detangler in Family Dollar Store. It’s called Aunt Jackie’s Knot Today. I stumbled upon this based on a recommendation from a friend. The best way to use this is to apply it, let it sit for five minutes, then detangle. No knots, no tears, no drama, and less hair pulled out.
Hopefully, these tips will help you reduce shedding and keep your drain happy. Check out this video from Girls With Glasses called Big Hair Baby!
