How to Keep Tangled Hair at Bay?

Saturday, 24 February 2018

It’s a well-known fact that keeping up long and lovely hair requires great care. Yet, we would all agree that it’s a task in itself to continually manage bunches and tangles! It is tedious, as well as be very agonizing and harming.

Why does your hair tangle?

There could be a couple of reasons for why your hair tangles. Hair texture, recurrence of brushing, exposure to environmental factors like dust, wind, and in addition the healthiness of hair, would all be able to add to tangling.

For instance, your hair will probably tangle if:

  • It’s thick & wavy
  • It’s too long
  • It’s extremely dry and damaged
  • You don't brush your hair much

In this blog, we'll share the best tips on the most proficient method to detangle your hair and limit ties.

In any case, our hair will tangle; while some hair sorts are more inclined to tangling than others, it is something that we can't maintain a strategic distance from totally. There are, in any which ways, a few things you can do to limit tangling and the harm that originates from it. Here are our most loved tips on how you can do that:

  • Condition your hair

Conditioning the hair reestablishes the moisture, making it smoother and more averse to tangle. We’d advise to always condition your hair in the wake of washing, and also utilizing a deep conditioner atleast once or twice a month.

Tip: condition the finishes just, to stay away from oily roots.

  • Adapt wide tooth brush

Despite the fact that it might entice to utilize a brush since it's 'quicker', utilizing a wide tooth brush (or a unique detangling brush) is a greatly improved thought, believe us! Not exclusively will it expel the tangles all the more proficiently, but you will likewise shield your hair from being torn and harmed. Begin at the base of the bunch and patiently work your way up until the point when it is brushed out totally.

  • Secure your hair while you sleep

Talking about dozing, did you realize that hair can likewise get tangled while you rest? Yes, so before sleeping at night or taking a nap anytime, tie your hair loosely into a braid to avoid frizz and tangles.

  • Pick the right products

Maintain a strategic distance from any product that contain alcohol. Despite the fact that there is an entire rundown of ingredients we advise to avoid, alcohol is extremely the one that you need to keep away from. It truly dries out your hair and makes it more inclined to tangling. Rather, go for common, sulfate and alcohol-free products, or those particularly intended for tangled hair.

  • Braids all the way

In the event that you've done any examination whatsoever, you know how harmful even a simple elastic can be to your hair. Tying your hair in a ponytail all the time causes breakage and in some cases split ends, so it’s always a smart thought to style your hair differently in contrast to a ponytail every time at the same spot.

The good thing about plaits - you make a tight one in the morning (a french or a fishtail plait) and go ahead with your day. Jump, move, run, do whatever you need - the mesh will stay. No bunches. No unwinding!
