Whether your hair is long, short, thick, or thin, you more than likely know the struggles of untangling your hair. The process can be difficult, painful, and frustrating. In this article, we’re going to highlight a few of the simpler ways to untangle your knots and keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. Hopefully, this will ease some of the tediousness and avoid you from pulling your hair out.
The methods or processes will be based on whether you have small knots, tons of tangles all over, or are untangling wet or dry hair. For those who struggle with removing small knots in dry hair, you can put a little bit of leave-in conditioner or serum to loosen up the knot or mat. Then gently pull apart the knot with your fingers. If you just need to break loose a few knots here and there, your fingers can be gentler than a brush or comb. In the extreme case that a knot is really tight and you are unable to get it out, you may need to cut it out.
If your entire head is full of knots and tangles, divide your hair into sections. Apply conditioner or oil again to your knots and use your fingers if you can. If the knots are larger, you can use a special detangling comb such as our Anti-breakage Detangling Comb. A detangling comb will reduce the damage done to your hair while untangling. We recommend starting the detangling at the ends of your hair, then working your way up. When your comb goes through the ends easily, you can trace back to your root area.
If you are trying to detangle wet hair, make sure to squeeze out the excess water first. Remember that your hair is more delicate and prone to breakage when wet, so you will need to be extra careful. You might also want to use a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray. Section your hair and work to remove the tangles with a wide-toothed comb.
To prevent tangles, brush hair before you shower and use a wide-tooth comb to comb your hair out after you rinse out your conditioner. It should be easy to brush through. After, squeeze out the excess water and your hair should not be tangled.
If your hair tends to get tangled while you sleep or in windy weather, make sure to put it in a bun or braids to protect it from getting whipped around. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase may also help reduce tangles and keep your hair soft and smooth throughout the night. Lastly, regular haircuts or trims can be another option to prevent tangles and knots.
