Ahhh, these are twists that I missed! Though my ends still irritate me, I will be trimming them every couple of months to ensure I get SOME kind of length while I get them back to my desired state of health.
For this detangling session, my hair was a previous swamp of tangles because of the wet bunning I had been doing for the past 3 days like the pic you saw in the previous post. So yes, my hair was all shrunken and trying to be disobedient. But I turned on some gentle, sunshiney tunes and was the most gentle with my hair I had been in awhile.
Nelly was previously sectioned into 11 twists the night before, so last night I would take down a twist, delicately separate it into two sections and then mist with water to make it workable then applying Garnier Fructis' Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner to fingercomb as much as possible before I went in to detangle with my wide tooth comb. I lost as littler hair as I can imagine while using a tool to detangle and I think this is the reason why:
You should not feel any pain in your wrist or thumb while combing.
It should be just a light, gentle flick of the hand. You should not have to "push" your hand to comb your coils, rather you should gently push and flick. I used to do this but didn't think it made much of a difference, but I started noticing that I was losing more hair come wash day when I didn't do it this way. It may seem like it takes a bit longer and like you're not doing anything as far as detangling, but soon your hair will be loose and free of all knots and curl-ups, and you can twist it up and move to the next section.
So in love with the fro. lol
Gott put in the effort to get something out of it. ;)
and Keep It Coily
