I was supposed to make the sock bun last night but IÂ didn’t, …..I wanted to, I meant to find a sock but then got distracted as always. What I did do wasÂ dry detangle my hair so that I could do my usual braid out for today. I must be honest IÂ didn’tÂ know there was a specific method to dry detangling until IÂ startedÂ reading about it for example check here and hereÂ and here.Â I’veÂ always done it to relax and unwind, weird right!? Something aboutÂ separatingÂ strands that just eases my mind.
My method -Â IÂ usuallyÂ don’tÂ add water or oil when I do it because well then itÂ wouldn’tÂ be dry
My hair isÂ separatedÂ into 6 sections in my head (yup because when you are relaxing thereÂ shouldn’tÂ be anythingÂ methodologicalÂ to it), then I literallyÂ separateÂ my clumpsÂ throughoutÂ my whole head using my fingers. After I am done with a section I will braid and seal the ends like normal.
The benefit of dry detangling for me is that I am able to remove any knots andÂ snarlsÂ that I may have developed all day long.
Note/ Even though this is considered a detangling session the reality is once I amÂ doneÂ I still wont be able to run a comb through it from root to tip… who does that anyway??
(hair strands are naturally attracted to each other and even though I amÂ separatingÂ they clump back together once the braid is in or if that section is smooshed together for any reason. ThisÂ is a great thing as it reduces snapping and breaking….. There isÂ strengthÂ in numbers )
super simple… and it works for me!
