Sin Bin and Angel Wings: Washing hair in sections
**This post is based on my personal view.**The Sin Bin
Curly hair past a certain length (6 inches in my opinion) simply cannot be washed free without knotting, matting and tangling. The tighter the curl, the more the benefit of washing your hair in sections. Washing free hair is therefore going into the sin bin.
Wearing the halo today is washing hair in several sections. This means dividing the hair into manageable sections, for example two, four, six or eight individual braids. If you don't wish to braid the hair, banding each section with a small hair band or two and/ or using section clips is just as good.
You can then wash each section individually. If you wish, you can unbraid each section (one at a time) to ensure you get your product well distributed or to ensure all the product is rinsed off but only work on one section at a time, making sure to rebraid or band it when you are done.
Why does this work so well?
Curly hair is simply good at knotting.Washing hair in sections makes the hair less likely to knot simply because it does not have to be constantly handled and separated from the other strands.
If your hair is not long enough or you have a larger/looser curl, you can probably get away without sectioning hair. However, if your hair is long - whether curly or not, this technique may suit you too.
So, do you wash your hair in sections or do you prefer to wash it free?
