Begin detangling at the tips of your hair and gradually work your way up towards the roots. This approach prevents tugging and minimizes breakage.
Choose a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush designed to glide through knots and tangles without causing damage.
Use a conditioner or a detangling spray to add slip to your hair, making it easier to detangle. Let the product sit for a few minutes before combing.
If you have thick or particularly tangled hair, divide it into manageable sections before detangling. This approach ensures you're thorough and gentle in each area.
Use your fingers to gently separate and detangle knots before using a comb or brush. This can help minimize breakage.
When you encounter a stubborn knot, hold the hair above the tangle to prevent pulling and discomfort at the scalp.
Take your time and be patient while detangling. Rushing can lead to more breakage and damage.
