How To Detangle Without Damage
Are you looking for a way to detangle your hair without damaging it? Look no further! These tips will help show you how to detangle your hair without damage, leaving it looking shiny and healthy!
It’s a great idea to brush your hair before you wash it. By brushing your hair prior to showering you can get out loose dirt and dead hair. Hair has a tendency of getting tangled when it is dry, which makes getting it wet even worse. After washing your hair, it is recommended that you then comb it with a wide-toothed comb. You can do this by separating your hair into sections; this will help prevent knotting. Start at the ends of your hair and work your way upward to your scalp. By raking a comb from your scalp to your ends, you’re likely to encounter a lot more tangles, and you could break off hair by trying to rip through them.
Detanglers can come in sprays that you apply to your hair after washing it, yet before you start to comb through it. Spraying an ample amount into various sections of your hair will help the detangling process. Like many products, however, spraying too much could cause your hair to feel excessively oily. It’s always better to start with a small amount. You can always add more but you can not take it out.
