Have you ever struggled for hours to detangle your hair? I have, and I'm sure that if you are here, you have too. It's one of the most exasperating experiences in life: it feels like there is no way out, it hurts a lot and sometimes you end up pulling out your hair until strands of hair start pilling up on the floor. Then, I have to say you might have been using the wrong tool or doing it the wrong way. Here is some advice on how not to ruin your hair.
How to brush your hair
Never start from your roots
When you brush your hair, you should start brushing the ends of your hair first and once you’ve removed knots, you should move up and start combing again in small brush strokes.
Section you hair
It’s better to divide your mane into smaller sections. This not only makes the whole process easier but also makes it stress-free, be patient and work your way up from the ends. Brushing your hair has a lot of benefits apart from detangling knots, it redistributes oil from the scalp wrong the hair and, in turn, helps condition dryer ends.
Choose the right tool
Brushes and combs vary according to your hair type, it is not easy, however, to choose from the wide variety of brushes. These are some general rules according to your hair type:
If you have fine hair
The best are the ones with extra soft bristles –as they are gentle on the hair and scalp.
You should choose a paddle brush that increases shine and redistributes natural oils.
Paddle brushes are useful for long hair as they allow you to brush through a large portion of hair.
A sturdy, wide-toothed comb is probably the best to detangle curly hair, and it will be easier if you do it while you shower.
A detangling brush is a brush specifically designed for hair that gets tangled or knotted easily. The purpose of detangling combs is to help detangle knots in thick, or long hair, minimizing the damage to the hair strands.
They can be used when the hair is dry or wet, and you use it like a regular brush, sectioning your hair and gently brushing your hair.
Benefits of using a detangling comb
- They are pain-free: Detangling brushes are designed so that they glide through the hair, without making your hair brittle.
- They do the job faster as their design allows you to work your way through your hair quicker than you would if it were a regular brush.
- They are versatile as you can find them for all different hair lengths and textures.
