Tricks For Detangling Fine Hair Without Causing Damage
Start In The Shower
Use shampoo only on your scalp and hairstylist Devin Toth says to “brush or comb your conditioner all the way through your ends and then let it stay on for about a minute.” Rinsing your hair with cold water instead of hot is beneficial as it’ll close your hair cuticles.
A detangler is a must once you’re out of the shower because it’s a “leave-in conditioner that contains a variety of oils for hair hydration” according to hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons. A good detangler will make it easier to comb out tangles without tugging your hair.
Start From Bottom
You should comb your hair ends to roots to prevent tangles and ripping of hair. Brushing small strands from bottom to top helps your hair to avoid falling flat.
Detangle Often
You should be detangling your hair daily, if not more; gently detangle your hair with a comb to prevent tangles and damage. Brushing your hair at least once a day also helps with hair shine, scalp stimulation, and the removal of loose hairs.
It’s very easy for your hair to get tangled as your sleep, so consider investing in a silk pillowcase to prevent frizz, breakage, and tangles. You can also sleep in a protective hairstyle like a braid.
