Tangles are one of the most difficult hair problems you can deal with. Some women claim it is the bane of their existence. If you agree, you have come to the right place. We’ll help you tame tangles, even the most stubborn ones, but without the pain and the broken off strands.
The sense of urgency to tame tangles cannot be overlooked. For one, it has the potential to develop into a more serious problem, such as knotting. And when you tackle the problem directly, it often leads to hair loss… and lots of it! What do you do about it?
Step 1 – Detangle the smaller sections first.
It might be aggravating having to face tangles. But you must be calm and not allow your emotions to get in the way. Be objective in your approach. Start from the bottom and work your way up. Moreover, you should work on the smaller sections first before dealing with the bigger and more stubborn tangles. When detangling, hold your hair at the root. Let the hair strands lay in the palm of your hand so there is lesser resistance as you are trying to sort out the tangles. Make sure that while you are sorting the strands that you never let go of the hold of the base so you are not pulling at your hair in the process.
Step 2 – Tame tangles with the right tool.
Oftentimes, you lose hair in your effort to tame tangles because you are not using the right tool for the job. Detangling brushes are made with the sole purpose in mind: to detangle. Therefore, it is important that you invest in them to ensure that you can sort your tangles with ease. It is also good to use a detangling spray so your strands will cooperate as you run the detangling comb or brush through it.
Step 3 – Leave your hair alone!
Sometimes when you are bothered by your tangles, you make the case worse by constantly touching and fiddling with your hair. But in most cases, your hands can contaminate your hair causing it more trouble. Refrain from touching your hair constantly and let the detangling products do its job.
Detangling should not be a nightmare! Hopefully, with these tips you will tame tangles with more ease and be on your way to a more beautiful, smooth hair.
