If you often skip washing your hair altogether just because of the detangling that comes post it, we’ve got some good news for you. There is a way to properly condition and prep your hair so that you can later detangle it without a lot of effort or damage. The best tip is to lightly get rid of knots and tangles from your hair before washing it so that it is not a complete mess after. This step-by-step guide explains how to detangle your hair safely...

How to detangle hair safely

Step 01: Conditioner - A conditioner can do more than just nourish your strands after shampooing. It can also be the first step towards detangling your hair. Apply the Tresemme Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Conditioner, focusing on mid-lengths and the ends. Using a shampoo comb, gently apply the conditioner all over your mane, starting from the bottom and working to the top. Leave for 3-5 minutes and rinse off thoroughly. 

Step 02: Light towel dry - First, gently wring out the water from your hair and wrap it up in a microfiber towel. Leave your hair in the towel turban for about 5-10 minutes; make sure the turban is not too tight as it can pull on wet hair.

Step 03: Leave-in conditioner - A lightweight leave-in conditioner works better than a serum when it comes to detangling frizzy and stubborn hair.  Opt for a formula like the TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Leave In Conditioner, which helps protect your hair from any damage that may be caused by the brushing. 

Step 04: Section your hair - It might seem tempting to tackle all of your hair in one go to detangle it, but this can cause damage to the ends. Make sure to section your hair into workable widths, which will also make the detangling easier, and you won’t have to pull too much. 

Step 05: Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle - Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle the sections of your hair. Again, start from the bottom and work your way to the top. Once all the sections are detangled, comb through your entire mane in the manner that you want it to air-dry.
