      coconut oil is one of the only 3 oils that actually penetrate the hair shaft. My guess is that is smooths the cuticles and allows slip better for combing. I use it in my shea butter mixture.

      I made my own protein deep conditioner today and next time I’m going to add phytokeratin, so I’ll possibly make the first natural conditioner with keratin in it!

      Virgin Coconut oil is better and on offer currently at holland and Barett usually £11.99 now £6.99.

      I don’t think there is a 4c hair texture, only 4a and 4b and you look like a solid 4a to me. Anyway, thanks for this vid. I am newly natural and I think the way I have been combing and detangling my hair has been doing more harm than good. I am going to take your advice from this vid and see how it benefits me. A lot of your lingo is very LHCF. Are you a member by chance??? Come help a sista out in the “Newly Natural” thread LOL! 🙂

      @CelineCarey thanks for the comments….I definately think my hair is 4c…you want to try combing it! lol! I was on LHCF for about 1 or 2 months then for some reason my account was closed and I didnt bother to investigate why. I will have a look at the thread…..but feel free to ask any questions on my YT page as I normally check this regularly. You have to be so careful when detangling your hair…This is where we lose length by breaking the hair when trying to comb it.

      @CelineCarey I have to agree with celinecarey. If u have 4c then i must have a 4g type of hair. lol

      hi natnub… when I detangle mine I twist after each detangled section and that really helps to keep the knotting down… Love watching you…

      @Averil07111 I tried this and it took me a while…I am so lazy! You are right to do it this way as it helps prevent further tangling. When my hair gets longer I will have to do the same!!!
