Unless you’re lucky enough to have silky hair that never tangles it’s likely you’ve had to painstakingly detangle your hair after a rough night’s sleep.
Here at Blown Lux, we know hair, so we’ve put together this guide to show different ways you can prevent tangled and knotty hair as well as how to detangle without breaking or damaging your hair.
Use The Right Products
Just like your skin, your hair needs different products depending on the weather, season and generally your hairs condition at that point in time. During very hot or cold times of the year, your hair can experience knotting and even breakage just because of the temperature shifts between hot and cold. If you don’t use enough product to counteract the effects, you get tangles so it’s important to nourish your hair with quality hydrating products.
Try swapping your regular conditioner with a deep conditioning mask every second wash and consider using leave-in conditioners if your hair is still experiencing knots.
It’s always good practice to give your hair as long a break as possible between washes to allow your locks to build up their natural oils. Natural oils are the best moisturisers and washing too frequently can strip your hair of them leading to dry hair and tangles.
Drying your hair is also a key point to avoid tangles. It’s important to take the extra time to pat your hair when you towel dry it. First, squeeze all of the excess water from the hair, next wrap your hair in a towel, and leave it to soak up the extra moisture while getting ready. After about 20 minutes, the towel will have absorbed most of the moisture from your hair, leaving it all set for a quick blow dry!
Use Detangling Products
No matter if you spent the afternoon in the pool, at the beach or are just a rough sleeper, a gentle detangling spray can make your life much easier. Detangling sprays can release tension and knots from the bottom of the hair which can cause breakage when combed through.
Choose Your Hair Brush Wisely
The brush you use can be the difference between untangled silky hair and a knotty mess. The best brush for knot-prone hair is one with widely-spaced bristles, allowing for easy detangling without tugging on knots and causing breakage. Luckily there are plenty of tangle-friendly brushes now readily available.
