Coconut Oil For Hair Detangling!

Have you ever heard of using coconut oil for hair detangling? 

My sister and I have really enjoyed the benefits of using coconut oil on our hair. 

However, it wasn’t until a couple days ago that I discovered it’s wonderful to assist in detangling, that and suave hair products. 

Some of the other uses for coconut oil is that it’s a great heat protector, sealer, and it can even be used on skin!

Coconut Oil for Hair Detanling! 

Picture above are some of the knots I had to remove:

All the tools and products that I used: 

  • Denman Brush
  • Wide Tooth Comb
  • A Suave Conditioner (one with excellent “slip” action)
  • Tropical Traditions coconut oil 
  • Hair clips to section and hold the hair


I began by sectioning her hair into six different sections. Starting in the back, I began finger detangling, pulling out any shed hair that I came across. After that, I ran some coconut oil through her hair, which really helps straighten curly hair. 


Now her hair is fairly straight, but still a little tangled. Her hair is naked besides the oil. Now I’ll add a little Suave Naturals conditioner (it doesn’t matter which one you use) and use a wide tooth comb. Pictured left are the results so far. 


Lastly, I will use a Denman brush and get the last tangles and shed hair out. The whole process took about half an hour and saved us time of re-wetting her hair and washing it when her hair was still clean but super tangled.

For curiosity sake, here’s all the hair I removed using the Denman, my fingers, and a wide tooth comb.

It has been about three days since I last washed her hair, so anything more or less than this would something to be concerned about. 


Well, there you have it! 

Ideally, you’ll only ever detangle natural hair when it is soaking wet and filled with conditioner, but sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures and dry detangling can’t be avoided. 

So now you know how!
