      How to Finger Detangling Natural Hair

      Recently, I have been reading reviews on the Tangle Teezer {pictured right}. While some Image result for tangle teezerlove it, there are a few who hate it. Their complaints are that it breaks and pulls their hair. Some complain that it does not work well on thick hair. Many finding no success with detangling or combing their hair using a brush or comb have decided to go back to finger combing or finger detangling.

      My original thought was “finger combing! Do people still do that?” Then, I thought well if we all finger combed, we wouldn’t be trying to find a magic brush or detangler to get rid of tangles. I stopped finger detangling long ago when I realized I was getting matted roots and dreadlocks. But I think I may not have been doing it right. Besides, it appears that I am getting split ends from my Denman brush. So, I’m willing to try something different.

      One key advantage of finger combing is you don’t have to worry about combs or brushes ripping your hair out. You can be as gentle as needed with tangles to ensure less breakage and prevent split ends. Breakage and split ends are two of the biggest complaints when it comes to natural hair. I can’t think of how finger detangling would cause splits or major breakage. Furthermore, this may also be the answer to single strand knots.

Here is a great video by Naptural85 on 3 ways to Safely Finger Detangle + Remove Knots on Curly Natural Hair. (<—click link to watch video).

      All of this led me to think maybe some of us are doing too much. I get it that we want healthy hair and most of want long healthy hair but, is it really so complicated?

      I may try simplifying my regimen some more and getting rid of some methods to see if they help with shedding and breakage. I plan to continue to wash just once a week, co-wash if desired and finger comb to detangle.

      Hope this post made sense! I am in the middle of taking twists out…ugh! I will update you all with pictures and a length check soon.

      Thanks for reading!
