Black people growing natural hair are acquainted with the eccentric qualities of tightly curled hair. Natural black hair has different textures ranging from corkscrews to fluffy S-shaped curls; actually, it is rare for an individual to have a truly homogeneous set of curls. Despite the texture combination, black people with natural hair can use the same basic hair-care practices to keep up healthy hair. Crucial techniques every natural should learn to keep up strong, healthy hair is proper detangling and moisturizing.
Fill a water bottle with warm water. Spray your hair from root to tip until it is fully saturated.
Apply the detangling spray or lotion to your entire length of your hair. While the detangler is setting, separate your hair with your hands and clip it into at least four different sections. Twist each section to prevent shrinkage.
Remove one section from the clip and untwist it. Hold it away out of your head. Use the wide tooth comb to detangle the ends of your hair first.
Continue to detangle while gradually moving upward to the roots. Hold the hair directly above the realm you’re detangling to decrease the amount of pulling in your scalp.
Repeat steps 1 through 4 until each section is detangled. Brush your hair with a seamless detangling brush to remove loose hair.
Separate your hair into a minimum of four sections with your hands, and clip them. Twist each section to stop shrinkage.
Untwist one section of hair. Apply a generous amount of moisturizer to your hair from root to tip. Determine the quantity of moisturizer you need based on the length and thickness of your hair.
Apply oil to the section of hair from root to tip. Brush your hair with a seamless styling brush to distribute the moisturizer and oil evenly.
Repeat steps 2 and three until each section of hair is complete. Style your hair as usual.

In the event you encounter a big knot while detangling, carefully comb or brush that area until the shed hair is released. Finding the best moisturizer will be difficult. Try different products until you’re satisfied with the results. Use a natural oil instead of oil in a spray can, which usually contains superfluous filler ingredients like mineral oil. Avocado, almond and olive oil are recommended for natural black hair.
Do not use brushes with seams or balls on the teeth. Most of these brushes will snag your hair, which causes breakage and damage to the hair strand. Keep your hair damp while detangling. Dry hair is difficult to control in its shrunken state.
