- Brush or comb your hair before washing so you don't start with a tangled mess.
- After applying conditioner to your hair, comb out any tangles with a wide tooth comb and leave conditioner in for at least 2-3 minutes.
- Always spray on a leave-in conditioner while hair is still damp. After applying, comb your hair with a wide tooth comb once again, then style as usual.
- Use a deep conditioner 2-3 times per week to keep hair moisturized and smooth (I reviewed two excellent choices in this post). This will help prevent tangles from forming in the first place.
- Hair oils, such as argan oil, can also help protect hair from heat damage, making it more manageable and tangle-free (I mention a personal favorite here).
- If you end up with a tangle or knot in your hair, the worst thing you could do is try to brush through it. Instead, use a wide tooth comb or pick to gently pick the hair until the tangle comes loose.
So, do you have hair that likes to tangle like mine does? Have you ever tried a salon deep conditioning treatment before? This will be the first time I've ever had one, but I decided to give it a try since my hair has been extra tangly lately. Plus, a deep conditioning treatment only costs $17 at the Paul Mitchell school nearby, so I won't feel too horrible if it doesn't help much. I'll update you all with the results tomorrow!
