The ultimate guide to detangling natural hair


Separate them into sections

Working with sectioned hair does take slightly longer, but it is a practical step in ensuring each part of your hair is detangled. And it’s much more manageable than combing through a full head of hair. Section hair into 6-8 sections with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb and secure them with an elastic band, so the loose strands don’t get in the way.

The ultimate guide to detangling natural hair



A girl’s best friend is a moisturising product that will leave her hair smelling great and looking healthy. The TRESemmé Botanic Range, infused with coconut milk and aloe vera provides just that! It’s free from parabens, sulphates and dyes and will give your hair a much-needed moisture boost! Spritz water evenly on your hair using a spray bottle. Then apply the conditioner on each section while gently massaging and detangling the hair. Use your wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair and start detangling from the ends rather than the roots. Once you’ve detangled the ends, work your way up to the roots.



Once you’ve detangled each section, rinse your hair with lukewarm water. Use a T-shirt to dry your hair, add a moisturising product and style as desired.


The trick to healthy hair is to remove knots and tangles as often as you can to prevent hair loss and even breakage. Now, rock your ‘crown’ girl!
