Step 1. remove all braid. use your hands as much as possible. Only use a comb when necessary while removing the braids.
Step 2. Once all the braids are removed, separate the hair into 4 or 8 sections(depending on the thickness of your hair)
1.I separated her hair into small to medium sections to have some type of organization to the hair. The section size depends on your hair type and thickness
2. If her hair is really matted and tangled, split those sections into smaller sections. DON’T TRY TO PART THROUGH MATTED OR TANGLED HAIR. JUST GENTLY SEPARATE IT WITH YOUR HANDS.
3.Lightly mist the child’s hair with water to loosen it up and make the detangler penetrate easier and the tangles will be easier to remove.
4.If her hair tangles more at the root, squeeze smooth thru detangler on the root of the child hair and work it down to the ends.
5. ALWAYS work in a downward motion
6.ALWAYS start with a big/wide tooth comb when detangling.
7. Once you start to detangle ,ALWAYS start at the ends working your way up to the root.
8. Once you have completely detangled that section of hair twist/braid it to keep the hair from tangling again.
step 4. Once detangling is complete, rinse detangler from hair in warm water. Shampoo hair with a moisturizing shampoo. Reapply the hair detangler as a deep conditioner. Sit under a hooded drier for 20 minutes then rinse in cold water.
Step 5. Style.
