I actually just started washing in sections when I began this 6 month stretch. I'm currently 15wks post and have a ton of new growth so sectioning is neccessary.

I'm natural and APL and I still don't wash in sections. I only wash in the shower and because my hair is still hanging down while washing, I don't get very many tangles. I couldn't ever see myself bending over a sink, for ex, to wash my hair. I'd have all kinds of tangles to deal with, I'm sure.

I started this at just above SL when I started my HJ. I'm full BSL now and I still wash this way. My hair doesn't tangle and very little hair comes out on wash day. I started doing this because it was reputed to curb breakage and tangling and at the time I needed help with that. It worked so well that I stuck with it.

What she said. I'm natural, and once I hit shoulder length I found it easier to start sectioning my hair to wash.

I usually don't wash in sections but I found it very helpful towards the end of my 16 week stretch. It cut down on tangles drastically. I think I will continue to do that.

I am natural between SL and APL, and I just started washing my hair in sections. I get way less tangles when I wash my hair in sections.

I am chin length and I wash in 3 sections

Short hair tangles too... especially with the level of shrinkage I have. It also ensures that I can get to my scalp. It's like getting through a small forest in there sometimes

When I first bc'd, I'd just make one part, front to back and wash the hair on either side, loose.

When it started creeping near apl, I had to try something else . There was just too much hair to deal and even though my hair stretches out under the shower, it was still difficult to manage and I'd often run out of hot water before I finished. So I started washing in 2 or 3 sections. The hair was either in plaits, twists or in ponytails and I'd undo, wash/rinse then redo before going to the next section.

Now I detangle before I get anywhere near the shower and wash/condition in six sections, and I never EVER run out of hot water.

It takes me about 5-7 minutes to wash all of my hair like this.


Try it!

I never washed in sections, even when I was relaxed, BSL. I detangle in sections once I add my leave-ins. I'm between SL & APL now, almost fully natural.

I only started washing in sections once I started stretching.To prevent tangling with my new growth. But once I texlax i'll go back to washing all together.

I'm natural and my hair isn't quite SL yet (NL in the back about chin length in the front), and I already wash, condition and detangle my hair in sections. It has been a god send. My hair doesn't tangle as much and I lose a lot less hair doing so.

I'm CBL/4ab/natural and have to wash in sections to avoid tangles. I'm sure I'd be at least APL if I hadn't lost so much hair along the journey.

Once I got close to APL length hair (straightened), I started washing my hair in sections.

And thank GOD I learned that that needed to be done, else who knows! I might STILL be struggling trying to detangle a whole head of hair all at one time in the shower LMAO

Washing in sections has been one of the best changes that occurred to me over the course of growing out my hair. I'm natural, by the way....

I've always washed in sections, even when my hair was so short it could barely be sectioned . My hair is uber thick and loooooooooves to tangle.

My hair is about 5 inches now, so I just started washing in 4 sections because of thickness and I think this it THE best cleaning and conditioning of my hair yet!! Not because of the products, but because I was able to work with each section and I LOVE the results. Will definitely keep washing, conditioning, etc. in sections. My life and hair is soooo much easier now because of it.

Default Re: What length did you start washing your hair in sections?

Can anyone post a vid on how they wash in sections? I want to try this, but I'm confused on how to do it successfully. I'm almost APL stretched, and my concern is that if I braid or twist my hair while washing, does the dirt actually get out of my hair...or is it wrapped up and intertwined with the braid?

Is there a video out and about where I can watch what this looks like? :
