I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard a woman say, “I need to wash my hair so bad but I don’t feel like dealing with all of that right now.”
“All of that” is the pre-pooing, washing, conditioning, deep conditioning, detangling, twisting, setting, drying, you name it, that encompasses wash day — and worst of all is that d-word right in the middle: detangling. Detangling makes your arms tired, it hurts your head, it makes you wish you had a bald fade. Nothing about it is fun, but it doesn’t have to be torture, per say, if you use the right tools and products.
If you’re going to skip or skimp on certain items in the wash day process, do not make detangling the step you slack on. Just invest in a few of the items on this list, which we and other naturals swear by, and we promise wash day will be a whole lot more manageable for you.
