No Combing in 2 Months?!

I have a confession to make. 
If you read the post title then you already know what it is. 
I haven't combed my hair in 2 months.




 Yes, 2 months. Crazy as it sounds.
I don't know why, but I have only been finger detangling. 
So tonight I decided to finally detangle my hair. Boy was I scared. I just knew it would either take forever or I would lose boatloads of hair. 


I am happy to say that it only took me 45 minutes and although I did lose a lot of hair, it wasn't extraordinary. 

I started off by taking out the chunky twists I had in my hair for the week. When taking out each twist, I gently finger detangled. 
I was left with this. 


  • Then I split my hair in half then worked in small sections. 
  • Sprayed each section with water/avj/rose oil mix
  • Finger detangled the section
  • Detangled with a seamless wide tooth comb
  • Detangled again with a seamless medium tooth comb
  • Then I just applied my DC and braided
  • I was left with a total of 12 braids


Detangling wasn't much of an issue until I got to my ends. They curl up and tangle so easily, but I made it through!

Are y'all ready to see how much hair I lost??


It looks like A LOT and it is. But think of it this way...
  • I haven't combed my hair in a while
  • My hair was in a protective style for the week
  • My hair is super thick 
  • and on average we shed about 100 strands a day. 


I'm not worried. 

If  you're wondering how much hair I typically lose when finger detangling weekly..here's a pic. 


I don't think I will ever go that long without combing again. Then again..it could have been worse.

    1. Lol, me too!

      If I didn't wear protective styles so often, I'd probably be the same way.

  2. I do that sometimes. Ok, alot of the time. I don't use a comb until after I've finger detangled & my hair is under running water drenched in conditioner. Anything else is not worth trying.
