How long does it take you to detangle?

Avatar • Jan 12, 2011

Reader Tiffany (not pictured) says;

I was recently watching a YouTube video where the presenter said she takes 4 hours to detangle her hair. Granted she has very long (mid-back-length) hair but it kind of worried me. I have medium length hair (about 8 inches) and it takes me 15 minutes tops to detangle. I typically apply Herbal Essences Hello Hydration to wet hair, let it soak, and then remove the shed hairs. But I have to admit that I do end up yanking a few knots apart. And even ignoring locked strands because I can’t be bothered with them. I’m starting to feel that I might not be doing this right, and possibly losing out on length because of breakage.

So I guess I wanted to know; How long does it take for your readers to detangle their hair. If they could mention their hair length & texture, and the process they undergo that would be great!

Great question Tiffany! So, ladies, what have your experiences been? Please also mention how frequently you detangle (once a week, once every few days, etc).

It take me 4EVER to detangle. I need tips on how to speed it up. Ihate rushing cause I do feel like I’m yanking/breaking my hair. I have 8 inches of 4b/c hair. I tried detangling w/ slippery conditioner under running water but that just washes out all the conditioner and defeats the purpose. Any tips?

what i do is i let the water “activate” the detangling conditioner i’m using. i load up on the condish then run my head under the water for about 2 seconds. the conditioner is still in my hair but it feels different, more slippery than just creamy. you hair should almost feel like seaweed. but don’t wash the conditioner out by standing under the stream… then you have nothing on your strands to help the comb glide through your hair. hope that helps.

i’m with you… i have about 10 inches of hair and it takes me 20 minutes to detangle wet or dry. on bad days, it takes me 45 minutes, but i don’t think i ever want to see the day it takes me 4 hours to detangle; it might force me to reevaluate some things.

Hmmm…
Well, if I’m just detangling, it takes about 30/45 minutes but that’s bc I’m also applying my leave-in & moisturizer. I rub it & massage it through & finger-detangle so that takes awhile. My hair is a few inches above APL in the back, if you want a length comparison.

Detangling frequency: 2 to 4x/month
Length and texture: about 8 inches long and thick; 3c/4a; very porous; mostly fine
Process: load up with slippery conditioner in the shower (e.g. Herbal Essences, Trader Joe’s), four sections of hair, work with a plain Goody wide-tooth comb starting from the ends and working toward the roots.

I don’t worry much about breakage/shed hair. I know it’s getting longer, and I’m not in a rush for length to happen quickly. I focus on keeping it healthy and supple. I wear my hair in protective styles (twists, updos) most of the time.

i detangle once a week and have slowed down on quickly ripping through my hair like I used to do and now take my time (about an hour) to detangle instead. i know exactly which video you mean because it’s the same one that made me slow down 🙂 It doesn’t take 4 hours, but i did notice much less hair coming out by taking my time.

4a in between collarbone and apl- it takes me less than a half hour to detangle.
I think it’s important not to let it tangle in the shampoo process. So I wash in 4 plaits and take them down to condition and detangle.

Yep. Sectioning it in fours is a lifesaver (sometimes 6 on a week where I continuously wore my hair out). My hair is also in between collarbone and apl. takes me maybe 30 mins to shampoo condition and detangle.

Learning to wash my hair in sections literally changed my life. Before I started washing my hair in 4 big twists, detangling my hair was a NIGHTMARE. Now it takes me about 20–30 minutes to thoroughly detangle and moisturize my hair.

Exactly Alana! My hair is arm pit length stretched and I don’t have massive amount of tangles.I comb through on dry hair with my fingers before I wash 1X a week. Finding styles that keep hair from tangling is key I think. I found that twists left in longer than a couple of days did cause my hair to mat and tangle so now I just don’t wear them that long (3–5 days only). Out styles, buns, and updos seem to keep tangles out. I couldn’t imagine spending 4–5 hours working through one head of hair. That would definitely call… Read more »

My hair is very kinky, about the texture of this girl’s hair: http://img220.imageshack.us/i/sanstitre3932ay.png/sr=1

It’s mid-back when stretched, but usually above my neck due to intense shrinkage. I detangle as needed and it usually takes about 2–3 hours.

i’m wondering if thickness plays a part in this. take my sister and me for example. when we both had relaxers, her hair was always thicker and longer than mine. i had that thin scraggly kind of straight hair. now that we’re both natural, i find that it take me no time to detangle and it takes her a significant amount of time despite her hair being shorter than mine. our textures are not all that different but when it comes to thickness and fullness in hair, she takes the cake.

Next I apply conditioner to each section, shower, then rinse the conditioner out and detangle 1 last time.

I’m still growing in TWA so it doesn’t take me that long to detangle. (I use the aformentioned methods.) But as my hair grows longer, it takes longer to detangle since I have thick/course hair. I plan on using Bentonite Clay to aid in the process. Does anyone use Bentonite, henna, cassia, or oil/vinegar to make their hair easier to detangle? If so, how much does it cut down on your detangling?

I’ve tried rhassoul clay conditioning treatments and they definitely made my hair easier to detangle. I think bentonite would probably have the same effect. Neutral henna made it easier as well, but not as much as the rhassoul clay. That stuff was amazing!

I use bentonite occasionally for clarifying. My tangles melt away after I rinse it out. I LOOOOVE the stuff. Unfortunately it may take a couple of rinses to get it out and it’s crucial not to leave any in there ( or else the hair gets crunchy when dry :(. Prepooing with a mix of oils and coconut milk also melts my tangles away. Have you given that a try?

I have 4a hair on the sides and front and 4b hair pretty much every where else…it takes me about 20 minutes to detangle about 6–7 inches of hair. I section and clip my hair in about 8–9 sections and just keep my hair wet (not dripping) and detangle with my leave-in (Yes To Cucumbers) with a wide-tooth comb 😉 After I detangle a section, I twist and clip it and move onto the next section. I’m generally very careful and dont detangle if I’m frustrated or emotional..I can always rewet my hair later *kanye shrug* Sectioning has been the… Read more »

I oil rinse and I don’t let it tangle (=I moisturize everyday with conditioner, I seal and I always air dry in braids). No more detangling sessions for me.

Oil rinsing changed my life and it is the reason why I’m still natural.

I’m curious as well, particularly about how you keep it from tangling. What is your hair type? My hair can tangle by itself 2 seconds after I detangle it. I tried to finger detangle my hair using oil on dry hair and it took three hours. I normally finger detangle using conditioner in the shower and that takes 1 hour.

this is a great post! it takes me about 4 days to detangle…cuz i have thick hair/roots and it takes me forever to detangle in sections. my hair is an inch or two past my shoulders when unstretched. it is i super coily, kinky/curly and it easily gets tangled. my hair is well lubricated with great conditioning agents that helps to give ‘slip’ and it still takes forever. for me, i would not change it any other way.

Question: Do you think the twists left in so long might cause some tangles?

Whatever you are doing it’s great for length retention!

That’s an interesting conundrum BGLH- what if the methods used for length retention are giving tangle trouble!?

@Dajewel, if your roots are your trouble spot, apply JBCO to your scalp after you’ve twisted or whatever you do on wash day, let your hair air dry and throw on your satin bonnet/scarf at night. In the morning, your roots should be super soft. I apply my JBCO with an applicator bottle.

Is it bad to not detangle?? I usually apply Nature’s Gate (whatever variety) to dry hair and and twist in large chunky twists. I put it up in a plastic bag (hey, broke college student here) and let it sit about 10–15 minutes. Then I run the water and put my head under it rinsing out the twists until the water runs clear. Once the conditioner is completely out I undo the twists and its pretty much detangled. I can run my wide toth comb through it. Oh and I do this once a week on a little bit longer… Read more »

Combing through your hair like you’re doing is detangling.

I used to think that I wasn’t detangling my hair because I would hear the crazy times people spent doing it and I never spent more than 15 minutes. My sister reminded me that detangling is that process of combing through your hair no matter how little or how much time it takes.

It doesn’t take me too long, maybe 5 minutes for each section, but I think I’m rushing through it or not using the proper tools because I’ve noticed some breakage (although it could be left over breakage from when I was transitioning my hair).

Alice

It depends on how I’ve been wearing my hair and how long I’ve had it in that style. For example, if I’ve been wearing a wash and go for a week, I can be looking at an hour or more of detangling. If I’ve worn a protective style for a week (practically unheard of for me) I can be looking at maybe half and hour.

Length: Collarbone Length
Texture: 4a/4b
Density: Less dense on sides and nape; more dense at crown
Time: 20–30 minutes
Frquency: Weekly

Process:
‑Section dry, stretched hair into 5 sections.
‑Lightly spritz with water/aloe vera gel/honey mix.
‑Add EVCO or EVCO/EVOO blend to hair.
‑Gently finger comb to remove shed hairs and tangles.

I don’t fuss about getting every shed hair out. I lose hair the size of a bottle cap each time I detangle. Wearing stretched styles and fingercombing are wonderful for my hair.

My hair is somewhere between 10 and 12 inches long. Don’t really know what my hair type would be, but it’s in the 4s. I wear my hair in twists or plaits pretty much all the time and I detangle when I take them down, before I wash. It takes me probably half an hour at the most, once I’ve gotten the twists out. I don’t use a comb, I detangle and smooth with my fingers, which means it takes longer, but it’s much more gentle on my hair, and more enjoyable as well. Before I use to detangle with… Read more »

When I wear small twist and braids for a wk or more and wash my hair in said condition detangling takes 1 — 2hrs. I have APL 4a/b hair. When in larger twists or stretched styles — which I wear for no more than a week, it takes 30 ‑45 mins to detangle. I usually detangle once a week before I shampoo.

It takes me about 1/2 hour to detangle my hair. My hair is 8 inches long, 4a/4b. I wet my hair with rose water and then apply lots of coconut oil. I then finger comb my hair and detangle with a wide tooth comb. After that I braid it into about 15 plaits. This is done once a week the night before wash day. I also co-wash and DT my hair with the braids in. Once I rinse out the conditioner I take out the braids and my hair is soft and tangle free. This works for me like a charm.

Apply conditioner before washing and gently detangle.It takes about an hour. I wash in sections, apply a mix of conditioner, coconut oil and honey and deep condition. Before washing out the mix, I comb through with conditioner,keeping it in sections.

Total time: 2 hours

I then put in large braids to dry and stretch it out overnight. Done!

NB: Sorry, I meant “Conair Detangling Comb” LOL and also I wanted to add, when detangling I separate my hair into about 5 sections. (side sections of the head, front and back sections, and a section in the middle of my head (where men start to bald when they’re older :-)). This makes it a lot easier to comb as I can adjust to a section’s hair texture.

WOW! My hair is almost BSL (because I recently cut it) and it never takes me over an hour to detangle — even when I am not in the shower. I have some 3c, 4a, and 4b areas. Then again I have been doing this so long that I feel like detangling is second nature. I’m not sure what I am doing differently that causes my time to be so short but I know that I am definitely not yanking my hair out.

It takes me a couple of hours to detangle. That involves taking down my 2strand twists (which I make kinda small), separating them, and then making sure all tangles are out. This does not count the time I am in the shower with my comb. When I am doing my hair I am also doing other things such as watching movies or doing laundry. I have medium length hair.…

I have 4b/4c hair about 3–4 inches. If I’ve worn my hair in twists/twist outs I need to detangle prior to washing. I recently started mixing a conditioner with water in a spray bottle. Then I detangle with my fingers or comb from end to roots. That has helped a lot. After washing, I also do an oil rinse. In my oil rinse I use coconut oil mixed with some essential oils of choice. I let that sit on my hair for about 45 min using a conditioning cap. When I rinse it out, my hair is so soft and whatever… Read more »

I am 4a/3c coarse natural and I have recently changed my detangling technique. Before, when my hair was shorter, I could detangle in the shower with conditioner and running water. However, as my hair got thicker and longer, I could no longer do that technique (lots of tangles). Now at almost BSL, I detangle after my deep conditioning. Since my hair has soaked up some of the conditioner and is warm from heat, it is easier for the comb to glide through. Sometimes I will add some water to get a little more slip, but is often unnecessary. Overall, I… Read more »

She must detangle one strand at a time! My 10y/o has hair longer that Kimmay and it takes a/b an hour to carefully detangle her hair. Sry, but I don’t believe it takes her 4 hours unless she is obsessive or something.

I think this is quite rude. Why would she lie and on top of that how unrealistic is her estimate when quite a number of us agree that 4 hours plus is normal?

A 4 year old’s head cannot really compare to an adult’s head.

I think it is fine to disagree on the time but it is not fine to call someone a liar especially when its unfounded.

I have 3c/4a hair that is 4–5 inches long. I detangle every week. After shampooing, I saturate my hair with conditioner (either Suave Almond and Shea butter or Tresemme moisture rich)and use a wide tooth comb. I do it section by section (from end to root) softly. I do get some snags, but not a lot.

It takes me about 5–10 mins depending on how many knots have formed.

@Anonymous, I’d say obsessive for a lot of people is an understatement. And yeah, I don’t see how it takes 4 hours. It’s not even above average thickness. For a lot of people, it might be a product of not ever combing, or rarely combing too. But mostly probably being overly careful. For me, having unusually thick hair and not short (but I don’t measure and dislike typing), means that styling or prepping after washing can be time consuming (and drying takes an eternity), but the detangling isn’t hard.

It used to take me exactly one hour flat to shampoo, condition, and detangle my hair plus taking a shower.

Now I don’t even detangle when my hair is soaking wet. I use the TANGLE TEEZER and it has worked wonders for my hair. But it is only good to use this product when your hair is slightly damp. So I usually start detangling after I get out of the shower.

It takes me about 5 minutes to detangle my hair. My hair type is 3c.

I have very thick type 4a/b 10″ long hair. The only time my hair gets really knotted is when I’ve had it in braid extensions and even then it doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to detangle. I do the bulk of my detangling after washing. I divide my hair into four sections and smother each section with UBH moisturizer. I then proceed to detangle with a wide toothed combed. If I come across any knots/snags I use my fingers to prise them apart.

I have shoulder-length hair in it’s natural state (3B-3C texture), mid-back length when straightened. To detangle, which is usually done as a pre-shampoo, I create a mixture of water and a cheap conditioner that I would mist on large sections of my hair prior to detangling with a wide-toothed comb; this process takes between 25–45 minutes, depending on the amount of tangles I encounter. I generally do this at the most once a week.

It takes me 1.5–2 hours to detangle my hair. I have 4b, 14″ long, and I usually wear my hair in small twists and twist-outs. I only detangle once a month so that’s probably why it takes so long. I do have a lot of shed hairs too, but again probably because I only detangle once a month. I detangle with conditioner and castor oil in sections. I could be gentler as I use a shower comb and a brush.

Ladies, don’t sleep on the tangle teezer. I was very skeptical after reading about it in the forums and watching the youtube videos but I’m glad I bought it. My natural 4b hair has NEVER been detangled so well using the tangle teezer. Not only does it detangle well but it distributes the product(s) well which means I won’t be waisting any products and more product will reach more hair strands from the roots to the ends. It now takes me about 30 minutes to detangle. 🙂
