Easy Ways To Detangle Hair Like A Pro
Tangles! You know the feeling when you try detangling your hair and all you get is hundreds of hair strands. The pain of combing, coupled with additional stress of losing your precious locks can make anyone cry, and we’ve all been there and done that. No matter your hair type or length, escaping knotted hair strands is a task. And yes, knotty hair can make you do crazy things, but we recommend holding off on picking up your scissors. All you need is a little patience to detangle your hair in a sane way. Before you go and chop off an extra dense, read through our simple ways to detangle hair.
Apply coconut/almond oil to your hair. Gently rub it all over your strands and leave it on for a few minutes to give your hair some moisture. Then, try to remove the knots with your fingers and wrap a warm towel on your head for some time. This will help avoid dryness and frizziness that cause tangles.
Focus shampoo on the scalp
You may have shampooed your hair uncountable times but are you sure that you are doing it right? Turns out that shampooing isn’t as fool proof as you may have thought. There’s slightly more to it. A good way to shampoo is to focus the product on your scalp instead of massaging it through the entire length of your hair. This will help your hair be less knotty but still clean, as your scalp is where most of the oil and debris gets accumulated. Shampooing can form knots, but most knots appear in the lengths of your hair—not right against the scalp.
Conditioning is the key
Skipping conditioner to save some time may sound reasonable and if you nodded in a yes, this is exactly where you’re going wrong. Skipping conditioner could be the cause of your terribly tangled hair. It’s time to make the conditioner your new best friend. Each time you wash your hair, load your strands with lots of conditioner. Apply the conditioner at the tips of your hair and move upwards towards the roots. You can try the macadamia conditioner for curly hair or the banana conditioner for dry hair to give your strands the love it needs. Banana and papaya will not only provide your hair with the conditioning it needs but also help to make it stronger and thicker. Once your strands are thoroughly coated with the papaya or banana hair conditioner, comb through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Not only will it remove any lingering knots but combing your hair will also help evenly distribute the sulphate-free conditioner.
Don’t miss the hair mask
Hair that is prone to regular tangles may lack moisture and just using a banana or papaya extract conditioner doesn’t negate your need for a hair mask or leave-in hair moisturiser. Pamper your hair and provide it with instant hydration by applying a hair mask once or twice a week. You can also use the Garnier hair mask as a leave-in conditioner for frizzy hair. This will leave your hair irresistibly soft, beautifully healthy and detangled.
Dry gently and use a serum
Drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel may seem like the fastest and easiest way to remove excess water, but it doesn’t do your strands any favour - even though it’s heat-free drying. Rubbing the hair repeatedly can create more knots. We recommend that you gently squeeze water out of your hair with a cotton T-shirt or a microfibre towel. Then, use a serum to detangle unruly hair further. This will smoothen your hair without heaviness and prevent breakage or split ends.
