Make wide-tooth combs your best friend
You’ve been underestimating the importance of having a wide-tooth comb on your dressing table. A sturdy, preferably wooden comb is always a better option than a hair brush, especially if your hair is prone to breakage. It removes knots easily in both wet and dry hair.
Start from the bottom
The most common mistake we all make is combing from the roots and moving on to the tips. Instead, first comb the bottom few inches of your hair and then work your way upwards. This will prevent hair breakage and hair loss.
Use your fingers
Believe it or not, no comb or brush can detangle your hair the way your fingers will! Gently pull apart tangled hair with your fingers, this will remove most of the tangles and then smooth it out using a brush or comb.
Do not skip conditioner
Dry hair is more susceptible to dryness and breakage. Therefore, after shampoo never skip one of the most important steps of hair care – conditioning. It adds the lost moisture back into your hair and protects it from getting tangled. The Dove Dryness Care Conditioner controls frizz, prevents tangling and makes your mane look healthy and shiny.
Oil your hair regularly
Depending on your hair and scalp type indulge in regular oil massages to prevent dryness in your hair. Even if you don’t apply oil to your scalp, ensure that you at least apply it to your ends once a week.
