Detangling your hair can be a pain—literally. Seemingly impossible knots can show up in any hair type.
Fortunately, with the right products and tools, you can be ready to take on even the worst messes. Forget about tearful brushing sessions. Here's how you can style your hair in no time, with no hassles.
Fall in Love With Wide-Tooth Combs
It's so important to use the right tools for any job. Although brushes are great for styling, they aren’t meant for detangling.
You might be able to multipurpose your brush if you have thin, fine hair, but hairbrushes won’t take snarls out of thicker, coarser tresses. To give your hair the VIP treatment, use a top-notch detangling tool such as the Evo Roy Wide-Tooth Detangling Comb.
Even though it might seem like an extra step, using a comb before brushing your hair can actually save you a lot of time. A wide-tooth comb works through knots quickly, whereas brushing over them can actually make knots harder to undo.
Use the Right Conditioner
If your hair is prone to snarls, use a detangling conditioner. Green People Moisturising Conditioner is perfect for frizzy, thick, coarse, and easily tangled tresses.
To make your hair even easier to work with, take your wide-tooth comb into the shower. Although you can’t brush your hair when it’s wet, you can comb it safely. In fact, you’ll find that your comb glides right through your hair when it’s coated in conditioner.
Don’t have time to hop in the shower? Try Kevin.Murphy Un.Tangled Leave In Conditioner. This stuff will detangle and transform even dry hair in seconds.
Start With Your Ends
Whether you're using a comb or a brush, you should never pull your hair from the root down. If you yank too hard on your strands, you can cause split ends and even hair loss.
Remember, you'll be holding on to these same strands for years, so treat them with care. Work in small sections when detangling, and slowly remove knots as you work your way upwards.
Slowly and gently, work your fingers through your hair. By feeling your way through the knots, you can save your hair from a lot of damage.
Let It Go
Sometimes your hair just isn’t going to do what you want it to do. If your locks are a total mess, create a messy up-do out of your wannabe dreads, and then tackle the snarls with conditioner later on.
