    Question how long does it take you to detangle your hair?

    I saw this video on Real Rapunzels (yes, I know some of you find RR being a bit ******-y, but some of their videos are really good)


    so my question is, especially for those of you tbl+ to terminal, how long do you need for detangling your hair.
    I already noticed I need more and more time since I hit HL but honestly speaking I like it. It's like me-time: meditation, planing my tomorrow's schedule, or just admiring some birds outside or the clouds...

    PS: I never saw a thread like this one, but if there is one and active, please link it and eventually remove (?) this thread...

    It depends where I am in the wash cycle. During the week, detangling might take 5 mins with a wide tooth comb; then a couple of moments to comb it back up into a bun position. I may or may not braid it; which will cut down on the tangles that need removing. I comb every couple of days depending on the bun in use; cinnibuns need detangling once or twice a day, Nautalis only needs handling every couple of days.

    Wash day is a detangling marathon. The first round is on dry, stretched hair and usually takes 5-10 mins with a comb; depending on how diligent I have been through the week and if I have had to skip a wash day (I may or may not need the TT if Iíve been really lazy). Once Iíve washed and semi-dried the mop; Iím back in with fingers, oil, and a comb to finish up; probably another 10 mins of detangling and oiling. Once everything is dry and being put away, itís another 30 secs or so; just to lose the last couple of curl tangles.

    It depends on how long I've gone without detangling. If I've detangled within the past day (usu. every morning) it takes about 2-3 minutes. If I've ignored my hair for a couple of days it can take much longer but I haven't timed it. The detangle with conditioner during a wash can also take some time but I have never timed it.

    It generally takes me 2 -3 minutes, if I am detangling after washing it, it would maybe take 5 minutes, not long.

    There was an earlier thread (from 2012), even with a poll attached:
    https://forums.longhaircommunity.com...light=detangle

    If you had searched "detangle" and marked "titles only", you'd have surely found it.

    A few seconds each morning. Finally found an advantage to slippery 1a hair.

    I have hip+ (just) length hair and the only time I need to detangle is just after a wash whilst it's still damp (even then it's not reeaaally detangling, just separating out the hair to ensure it gets coated when I do LCO), other than that I'm mostly brushing to smooth, my hair rarely tangles.
