When I’m deep in my relaxer stretch I detangle when I apply my pre-poo of a rinse-out conditioner mixed with natural oils to my hair. I also detangle in sections starting my ends and working up.

2. Shampoo in sections

Yes, you read right, shampoo your hair in sections. By having your hair in sections you can shampoo each section one at a time. It may seem weird and a lot of work but it is well worth it because it helps with keeping your new growth from tangling up on itself.

There are a few ways you can section your hair

3. Use an applicator bottle

I can’t remember how I got started using an applicator bottle to apply my shampoo but I’m glad that I did. Typically I would squeeze some shampoo into my hands and slap it on my scalp. That would get my hair clean but I would use a lot of shampoo to get the kind of lather I wanted or to clean all of my scalp.

How You Can Make Your Hair Routine Easier

I found that by putting some shampoo in an applicator bottle and adding a little water I could get a better lather and also apply the shampoo mixture directly to my scalp so no area is missed.

4. Use a moisturizing shampoo

When you’re deep in a relaxer stretch, using moisturizing products is a must including your shampoo. I’ve seen a difference in how my hair acts and feels when I use a moisturizing shampoo in the later stages of my relaxer stretch.
