Every couple of weeks or so I like to wear my hair out and about with the aid of some conditioners and gel to help hold the curl pattern and cut down on the frizz. After several days of no combing or even braiding it up at night (yes, I am THAT lazy) I always dreaded the 45 minute stuck in the shower sitting on a stool moment untangling my hair in conditioners. Recently I have tried pre-pooing my hair with a variety of butters and oils before shampooing and the results have been great! I actually looked forward to combing out my hair yesterday blending in a mix of coconut oil (Nature's Way Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 16 Ounce), some water spritz, and most importantly, the Burt's Bees Avocado butter. The butter is great because it actually really softens the hair and makes it more manageable throughout the combing process. Instead of spending 45 minutes in the shower with clumps of hair coming out in the comb, I now spend about 15 minutes doing a comb out with minimal hair folicle casualties at the end.
