4 Game-Changing Tips From Hairstylists for Detangling Natural Hair

Learning how to properly detangle my tightly coiled, sometimes luxurious, often stubborn 4B hair has been a process, and definitely not one that I’ve enjoyed. In fact, I don’t know if I’ll ever really enjoy taking time to comb through all my tangles and knots section by section but I am getting better at it—practice makes perfect. There have been plenty of times where I’ve made the conscious decision to (gently) tear out the tiny knots that lived between my strands just to get the process over with, but I know that’s not what’s healthiest for my hair.

After a number of wash and gos, twist outs, and attempts at securing my hair in a sleek bun in its most curly state, I’ve realized that there is a method to the madness when it comes to detangling it. To find out how to rid natural hair of difficult tangles without having to resort to desperate measures (or the big chop), we asked hairstylist Candace Witherspoon and celebrity hairstylist Gabrielle Corney for expert tips on the best ways to smooth things over. Keep reading for some of the best tools and techniques they recommend (plus a few of my personal favorites) for loosening even the trickiest of hair knots.
