How to detangle after extensions

After removing your braids, you will have some tangles that you have to work through before you can wash and condition your hair. Some of us have the pleasure of an assistant to help us remove extensions or weaves. But for the rest of us, we are all by ourselves. If you had assistance, have the person who helped you remove your braids stick around to help you detangle your hair.
1. You will need some Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the grocery store. Spray or sprinkle your hair very lightly with water, and add a generous amount of oil to your hair, ensuring that your roots and scalp are saturated.
2. Put on a conditioning cap and sit under your hood dryer for 20 minutes. Alternatively, wrap your hair in a towel and allow oil to sit for an hour or longer. For best results, sit under the dryer for 20 minutes, wrap your hair and a towel and let oil remain to soak into your hair and scalp for an hour or longer.
3. Gently section your hair off into small manageable sections. Most will need at least 8 sections. Clip off each section with a butterfly clip, bob pin, or whatever you have handy.
4. Release the first section. Run your fingers through the hair several times to release any large tangles. If there is any matting add extra oil and a sprinkle of water to further soften and prepare the hair. Take a large tooth comb (such as the Jilbere shower comb) and hold a small subsection of the section with your fists allowing the ends to hang loose. Gently comb the loose ends.
5. Gradually work your way up towards the roots. Be careful not to tear at the hair or break the hair. Use a light touch.
6. Work your way through each section. If you get tired or frustrated, take a break before you continue.
7. Wash the hair with a clarifying shampoo and use a deep conditioner to restore hairs moisture.
