So today we're going to talk about how to prevent tangling in your natural hair. Now the tangling situation is going to depend on how tightly curled your natural hair is. Usually people who have very tightly curled hair, they don't comb it as often so that they don't lose their style. So by the time the end of the week comes it can be a little tangle-y. So what I suggest when you wash your hair, comb it from the ends to the roots, apply your product at the same time using small sections, allow it to dry, and then as the week goes by, you can just mist it with a little water, maybe a little mix of leave-in conditioner, and then you don't have to keep re-wetting it every day, and that will prevent it from tangling.
