No matter your hair type, Brazilian body wavy, Malaysian clip in hair, silk straight hair bundles etc, you've probably been traumatized by tangles that seem nearly impossible to get out.We all can't wake up every day expecting to have great hair extensions, but throwing in some tangles and knots can make mornings even worse.Don’t let those tangles spoil a good hair day, take a look at these quick tips that will keep your knots at bay!
There could be a few reasons why your hair is tangling a lot. Hair texture, the frequency of brushing, exposure to wind, as well as the healthiness of the hair, can all contribute to matting. For example, your hair is more likely to tangle if:
● It is super thick and curly
● It is long and fine
● It is very dry and damaged
● You don't brush your hair throughout the day, etc.
1.Use a wide-toothed comb
If you do want to run a brush through your hair, then opt for a wide-toothed comb, preferably one made out of wood.A comb made from this material will decrease the build-up of static energy and cause less breakage than using a brush.
2.Brush your hair before washing
The best way to avoid tangles and knots is to brush your hair out before you wash it. Go in sections, starting from the bottom where the most knots and tangles are, and work your way up. Brush your hair before washing so that you don’t end up with a knotted mess.Brush below the tangle and you will notice that your hair will get free from the tangles.
3.Avoid hair products with a lot of chemicals
Chemicals are bad, bad, bad. Really harsh chemicals should be a big NO for your human hair extensions. Using them on a consistent basis could also contribute to damaging your hair. More damage = more tangles.
4.Don’t wash your hair frequently
Everyday shampoo will strip moisture out of your hair. Your natural oils and sebum are important to keep your hair healthy and protect the hair follicle. Washing every other day will make sure that your hair and scalp is not totally dry which is a cause of damaged and tangled hair.
5.Use a deep nourishing conditioner
Conditioning the hair will restore moisture back into it, leaving it smoother and less likely to tangle. Finding a really good detangler that works well for your hair is super important.Tip: condition the ends only, to avoid greasy roots.
6.Keep your hair dyes and bleaching to a minimum
The more dye you use, the drier your hair becomes, and tangles become more frequent after dying my locks. Keeping dyes to a minimum is best to keep your hair less damaged and less tangled.
As your remy hair weave grows, the ends get dry and split up. This makes your hair lose its shine and silky feel. Dry and split hair is more likely to get tangled. Regular trimmings will keep the split ends away. Get regular trimmings every 6-7 weeks. Also, try to minimize dying your hair especially if you have longer hair.
8.Be aware of how you sleep
If you take good care of your hair in your day-to-day life, you might as well make sure it's protected while you're asleep, too, because you don't totally know what goes on when you shut your eyes and fall asleep.Your hair is its weakest when it's wet,make sure your hair is dry before you fall asleep.Note:never sleep with it tied up.
