- Spray some of this mixture on the hair (so you can easily part into 4 sections). Once you've parted, secure each of the 4 sections with clips.
- Next, rub some of your favorite oil down the shaft of each section in a smoothing motion from root to tip. This will help get rid of the shed hairs that accumulated in the twists/braids/etc.
- Next, saturate each section with your conditioner mix. Take a little time to use your fingers to gently move through each section. Finger detangling is an excellent way to prepare the hair for brush or comb detangling!
- Once you have finished spraying each section, then place each section into a bantu knot. Once finished, cover head with a plastic cap for about 20 minutes. This will ensure that body heat combined with the spray will assist in an easy detangling session.
- If you choose to begin detangling at this point, use your favorite detangling tools and gently begin from the ends and work your way up to the roots. Work with small sized sections.
- Once finished with all 4 sections, you are now ready to wash with ease. I would recommend washing the hair in the already parted sections. Doing one section at a time. This same process works well on braid-outs, wash n go's, and other styles that you are finished wearing! Try it out!

Scream-Free detangling is what we all want. Taking down two strand twists? Ensure that the roots are entirely untwisted. When you're ready to detangle, get a spray bottle and fill 3/4 with water, about 4-5 pumps of your favorite conditioner, and about 2 tablespoons of glycerin. Shake Well.
