I have a mat in my hair. It is kind of impossible to pierce the mat I have. It’s not even that big but I can’t put my comb through it... What do I do?

I have a couple options for you.

  1. Speak with a hairdresser. They may be able to do something with your hair, or they could recommend a product used for serious untangling.
  2. You could just cut it off (even if you need to shave your head).
  • Ensure you hair is damp.
  • Get coconut oil, or olive oil.
  • Apply the oil oil to your hair from roots to ends.
  • Let it set for about 30 minutes.
  • Get a wide teeth comb.
  • Comb from ends to roots to avoid loosing a whole lot of hair.
  • Rinse hair out with warm water.
  • Shampoo with sulfate free shampoo.
  • Apply a hair mask to hair and sit under a steamer for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse with warm water.
  • Apply moisturizer to hair and style as desired
