I posted a little while back that I would let you know how the Tangle Tamer MAX worked out with detangling my wash and gos. Well, IT DID NOT WORK OUT AT ALL! I am soooooooooo frustrated that I even thought about giving a tool like this a try. This brush was very deceiving because it detangle my hair with ease...no snagging, to tugging...so I thought everything was cool. Until one night I got the urge to examine my hair (which I do frequently especially when wearing wash and gos. I was furious at what I found... the brush literately SHREDDED some of my hair! I had incomplete splits in the areas that I used the brush in.
Incomplete splits can be dangerous to hair because if they are in the middle of the strand and then one day decide to open up fully and split, it can cause lots of breakage. As with all types of split ends, cutting them is the only real way to get rid of them. You can, however, use things to "mend" them until your ready to snip them away.
Incomplete splits look like little holes in the hair strand. UGH!!!
Here's what I think is what most people think of when talking about split ends :D
My Plan Of Action!
*Search and destroy missions ( A LOT OF THEM! LOL)
* Using Coconut oil as a sort of "pre poo" (even though I cowash lol) This helps prevent the hair from swelling too much during the washing session and therefore prevents weak hair.
* Protein Treatment using Greek Yogurt 1- 2 times a month
* Use ACV 1x a month to keep cuticles smooth
* Stepping up my moisture and sealing in moisture with an oil or butter
Needless to say, I will NOT be using this brush on my fro anymore!
