In the footage, she also shares that she still put food on her hair to ensure it was nourished during the eight months. The detangling process took about two hours.

She goes on to wash her hair in the shower and divide it into small puffs before she dries and brushes her natural hair using a fancy hairdryer brush from Revlon - which @pumi_zibi describes as a lifesaver for 4C hair girlies.

As the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) reports, natural hair can be incredibly fragile and prone to damage, so protective styles can help keep your strands healthy.

After the tedious task, @pumi_zibi reveals her beautiful and healthy-looking brushed-out afro.
