Dealing with tangled hair can be so frustrating. Sometimes it can feel like no matter what you do or try, your hair always winds up a tangled mess. While it’s common to run into the occasional knot while running your fingers through your hair, excessive tangling can be a sign of a deeper hair issue going on, like dryness.
Fortunately, using the correct hair products in your hair care routine can help promote hydration and lead to fewer tangles in the long run. Instead of fighting a losing battle with your hairbrush, read on some more to see how you can keep those knots at bay.
Update Your Cleansing Routine
Use the time in the shower as an opportunity to easily get rid of stubborn knots. It’s the perfect moment for detangling because conditioner can provide enough lubrication to the hair to soften up any tangles, making it much easier to brush through them. For tangle-free hair, use a wide-tooth comb to brush through hair from ends to roots after cleansing with our Unnique After Care Shampoo and Conditioner. The shampoo works to gently cleanse the hair of buildup and oils while the conditioner uses argan oil to gently detangle and soften hair while also helping to restore it back to its healthy state.
Keep Your Hair Hydrated
For hair that doesn’t have enough moisture, treating strands to a hair mask like our Unnique KBS Hair Mask can help in the battle against tangles. That’s because tangle-prone hair is often dry or lacking in hydration, which can be a reason as to why it becomes matted. Before stepping out of the shower, apply the Unnique KBS Hair Mask focusing on mainly the ends of your hair and any parts that get tangled the most. After rinsing, your hair will feel softer making it possible to glide a brush through your hair without running into snags.
Add Extra Protein and Strength to your hair
Hair that’s prone to breakage and split ends can also lead to frequent tangling in the long-run. These are all signs of damage, and while the best remedy for split ends is to see your stylist for a trim, a protein treatment can also go a long way in providing a temporary fix. To ward off mechanical damage from brushing, distribute our thirds step in our Unnique After Care Kit which is the Unnique After Care Leave-In to weakened areas of the hair while it’s damp and add all those proteins and nutrients your hair needs to get rid of that tangling mess. After applying the treatment, let your hair air dry to reap the benefits of stronger and instantly smoother strands.
Use a Hair Drying Spray
When all else fails, there’s nothing wrong with adding the best help to your hair styling and brushing routine like our Unnique Xpress Blow Dry, infused with different ingredients, that come together to provide a light all-in-one product as it not only helps you brush easily, gliding through your hair, but it also provides frizz-control, shine, protection, and an everlasting aroma. Whether your hair is damp or dry, spray throughout the hair and begin brushing from ends to roots. And while it may seem counterintuitive to brush from ends to roots, it’s actually the best way to reduce breakage because you’ll use less force as you brush out any knots on the ends. Be sure to make your way slowly from the ends and moving upward to break up any knots that you find along the way.
Style Before Bed
You may have noticed that your hair is more vulnerable to getting tangled in your sleep. To wake up with hair that’s more manageable in the morning, you can divide hair into two sections and create three-strand braids. The braids will ensure that hair won’t get tousled around as you move about in your sleep. Plus, it will set your hair up for gorgeous waves or at the very least give your hair a slight bend depending on your hair type. And while you’re at it, consider investing in a silk pillowcase which is a lot easier on the hair and won’t rub or create friction. Whenever possible, it’s always a good idea to stay away from pillowcases made of flannel or cotton because these types of materials create the most friction on hair strands.
