    It’s no secret that maintaining long and beautiful hair requires good care. But, I think we can all agree, one of the most frustrating things about having long hair is probably having to constantly deal with knots and tangles! Not only is it time-consuming, but could also be quite painful and damaging.

    • Use a wide tooth comb
      Although it may be tempting to use a brush because it’s ‘faster’, using a wide tooth comb (or a special detangling brush) is a much better idea.
    • Brush your hair consistently
      If your hair is prone to tangling, it’s probably not a good idea to let it down all day (especially in the wind) without brushing it
    • Protect your hair while you sleep
      Speaking of sleeping, did you know that hair can also get tangled while you sleep?
    • Choose the right products
      Avoid any products that contain alcohol.
    • Braids. Braids. Braids.
      If you’ve done any research at all, you know how damaging even a simple hair elastic can be to your hair.

    Why does my hair tangle?

    • It is super thick and curly
    • It is long and fine
    • It is very dry and damaged
    • You don’t brush your hair throughout the day

    Helpful Detangling Tips

    • Split your hair into manageable sections: tackling a knot can definitely be frustrating!
    • Never brush wet hair: wet hair is much more likely to break than dry hair.
    • Use your fingers: to gently detangle your hair periodically throughout the day
    • Tie your hair: in a braid or a ponytail on windy days or when being active
