3 Tips To Gently Detangle Your Hair And Avoid Breakage

Eesha Kokane , 11 Feb 2020

I’m sure we’ve all been in this situation once—tired and frustrated with a comb stuck in your hair because your hair is tangled AF. It may seem like the simplest thing to do but dealing with tangled hair can be very tricky because if you don’t do it correctly you can cause breakage, split ends and frizzy hair. The correct way to gently detangle your hair comes in three simple steps. So without any further ado, here’s what you should do the next time you try to detangle your hair:

1. Work Your Way Up

It may seem like a reflex action to start combing your hair from your roots and work towards the ends, however, this can make your strands prone to breakage. So work in sections and work your way from the ends to the top. This will help you gently detangle your hair without yanking the hair at your scalp.

2. Use A Wooden Comb

A wooden comb is not only gentler on the hair but it also prevents frizz. It also helps distribute the natural oils of your hair, which helps nourish your strands and make them look vibrant and shiny. So do your hair and scalp a favour and use the right tools to detangle your hair.

3. Moisturise Your Strands Regularly

Look for a hair product that will double up as a serum and a hair mask. A good hair serum/mask will help you moisturise your stands which will prevent your hair from getting tangled. You should use a serum right after a shower or when you feel like it’s dry. So prioritise using good hair care products.
