I do the same as @afroknots...I detangle and condition with coconut oil (4 big sections) the night before..put on a shower cap and scarf up my head for the night. run the water through a section to catch the last loose hairs and no problems at all with detangling before wash day. love it.

I pretty much spritz at night with my AVJ, gently pull apart like @deecoily. I massage a little oil or curl milk into my hair to pull away the obvious loose hairs away. In the AM I release them, let them fly or secure with a big barrett or scrunchie and braid into big sections. Love it. No fuss. All go!
