As beautiful as natural hair can be, it can also be a challenge to handle at times. Whether you are or have been a naturalista since birth or are new to the natural hair game, here are some hacks you can use the next time your hair gives you a hard time.


  • Wash and style your hair in sections so that it doesn’t get difficult to handle.
  • Detangle your hair under running water with loads of conditioner. The weight of the water and the slip of the conditioner will make detangling much easier.
  • Detangle your hair from end to root NOT root to end.



  • Don’t let your hair shrink and tangle during the wash process. Wash your hair in braided sections. You can unravel the braid, wash and rebraid to really get to all of your hair strands.
  • Don’t make circular motions while washing your hair, unless you want tangles. Scrub your scalp and let the shampoo run down the hair shaft.
  • Hair conditioner doesn’t have enough slip? Add a few drops of your favorite carrier oil for more slip.




  • Tired of your twists not drying by morning? Squeeze out excess water and let them air dry before twisting.
  • Want more length? Style on damp, not wet hair.
  • To set your style, give your hair a blast of cool air from you air dryer.
  • Need to lay your edges? Spray a little bit of water followed by a butter or gel of your choice. Tie your hair down until it dries. Then Voila! Your edges are laid!
