I decided to grow my hair out about 2 years ago and although I love being able to tie my hair up and have it off my face when I need it, its frustrating how much I need to comb it. It gets so knotty so easily so here are some tips that I’ve picked up along the way.
Tip 1. Before washing your hair comb/brush it out. Your shower drain will thank you for it.
Tip 2. When washing and conditioning your hair, leave the conditioner in for a few minutes then use a wide tooth comb to separate the knots.
Tip 3. Never brush your hair when wet. This will cause your hair to weaken and break.
Tip 4. When sleeping, put your hair up. Depending on how you sleep will depend on what you do. Personally I started with the single plait but found I was headachy in the mornings from it so now I do the double plaits ala Pippy Longstockings!
Tip 5. This is the one I’m most terrible with: get your hair cut/trimmed every couple of months. Getting rid of the split ends will ensure stronger hair meaning that there will be less fly aways and damaged hair making it knotty!
