After doing the above mentioned treatments, you should take a comb and start combing your locks. Start near the ends and slowly come towards your scalp. Take one lock at a time and after finishing it, braid the loosened hair so that the hair will not be able to join in another lock.

Do not haste, take enough time otherwise you will end up breaking all your hair. You may need several days to comb your entire hair so keep patience.

Comb your hair from front to back and each side evenly. When you are done combing your entire hair thoroughly, you will definitely look better.
