Knotty and tangled hair not only looks unkempt and unsightly but is a pain (quite literally). This is a problem every girl, regardless of the hair type or texture, goes through on a daily basis. These knots make your hair prone to breakage and damage.
You can use all the detangling products and hacks in the world to untangle your hair, but nothing works… up until now, that is. Because we’re about to change your hair game forever. Below, we’ve rounded few hair care tips that’ll keep your tresses from tangling, knotting and basically ruining your life.
Brush your hair before washing
Your hair tangles a great deal while in the shower. Brushing and detangling your hair before shampooing helps keep it tangle-free and reduces breakage. Also, after applying conditioner, brush your hair gently with your fingers to untangle and then rinse to minimise tangling.
Condition your hair
Let’s get this straight. The dryer and rougher your hair is, the more it tangles. To prevent this, keep your hair moisturised and condition it regularly, especially the ends. Before stepping out, apply a drop of serum for a boost of moisture and you’ll come back home on the windiest day with knot-free hair.
Protect your hair outdoors
While travelling, exercising and performing any outdoor activity, keep your hair protected by wrapping it in a protective hairstyle like a double Dutch braid, knotted buns or ponytail. It helps keep your hair in place and free of tangles. You can also wrap a headscarf around your head to save it from the environmental damage and winds that leave your hair knotty and damaged.
