How to Brush Tangled Hair Properly
There is nothing worse then hitting a snag, knot or tangle while brushing your hair. It not only shocks you, but is painful and damaging to your hair. When you brush your hair really hard trying to get rid of the tangles and knots you can be tearing your hair and causing breakage. It is extremely important to brush through your tangles and knots correctly to prevent damage from occurring. To stop the pain and damage from happening, follow these simple steps.
- Use a wide-toothed comb as opposed to any other brush. Start at the bottom of your hair and gently work out the tangles. Try to focus on one area of tangles at a time and then move onto the next.
- Take a detangler spray and spray it into your hair before brushing it. Many time, you can find the detangler in the children’s section, however it works well on adult hair too.
- After shampooing your hair, apply a thick coat of conditioner if you are prone to tangles. Brush the conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb and then rinse well.
- Leave-in conditioner is useful for your hair. Spray it in your hair before brushing it. Start at the bottom and work your way up.
- After washing your hair, do not rub your hair with a towel to dry. You can blot it dry with a towel, but letting it air dry most of the way or using a blow dryer is best.
- If you wash your hair before bed, put it in a braid to avoid the morning tangles.
