Detangling your hair can be a real chore… Do you have trouble styling it?
Do your lengths get tangled easily?
Discover some tips to say no to knots and display beautiful untangled hair .
My hair gets tangled easily, what should I do?
Two reasons. First of all, your hair is long, which increases the risk of knots because it can easily twist.
Second reason: they are dry or damaged, which makes them more tenacious.
Their surface “grips” because the scale is not well smoothed, so when they come into contact, they no longer come off and the knot becomes visible.
Care to avoid knots
When it comes to knots, prevention is better than cure.
Your ally: smoothing treatments that coat the hair fiber, eliminate frizz and nourish the hair.
For beautiful detangled hair , it is important to follow the shampoo + conditioner routine (to be completed with a mask or two per week).
While the shampoo cleanses the hair, the conditioner serves to facilitate detangling. It’s up to you to choose according to your hair type (fine, colored , normal or thick).
As for the mask, it guarantees you well hydrated hair.
If your hair still tends to tangle, also use a leave-in conditioner or moisturizer.
Pay attention to drying
There are mistakes to avoid so as not to weaken the hair and promote knots.
At first, after wringing them out, don’t rub them with a towel, just gently dab them.
Also dry them with lukewarm air, especially not too hot because that would break the hair fiber.
To protect them from the heat of brushing, don’t hesitate to apply a thermo-protective spray beforehand .
Do not comb them wet, this increases the risk of breakage.
Detangle them after drying when they are damp and opt for a comb and a brush with soft bristles.
