Memoirs of a Transitioner: My Dentangling Nightmare
So, last night started off as a good night. For a moment I felt like I was finally getting the hang of this whole transitioning thing. I washed my hair with Suave Naturals Daily Clarifying Shampoo since I hadn’t clarified in awhile. I then deep conditioned with the Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol Deep Conditioner and then I conditioned with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner. After that, I detangled my damp hair in sections and even successfully clipped my own ends last night for the first time ever. I proceeded to apply leave in conditioner, moisturizers etc. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t poppin last night. Then… I thought I could brush my still damp hair into a ponytail and guess what? It tangled all over again! I had knots and tangles all throughout my hair. It took me hours and ridiculous amounts of detangler to get the knots out of my hair and lets not even talk about my new growth. Big mistake!
Lesson Learned: Never try to put your hair in a wet ponytail ever again in life.
