Whether we like it or not, our hair, as well as hair extensions, will tangle. While some hair styles are more easy to matting than others, it is something that we can’t avoid completely. There are, however, some things you can do to minimize tangling and the damage that comes from it. Here are our favourite tips on how you can do that:
1. Condition your hair
Conditioning the hair will restore moisture back into it, leaving it smoother and less likely to tangle. We recommend to always condition your hair after washing, as well as using a deep conditioning mask every one or two weeks.
Tip: condition the ends only, to avoid greasy roots.
2. Use a wide tooth comb
Although it may be tempting to use a brush because itâ€™s ‘faster’, using a wide tooth comb (or a special detangling brush) is a much better idea, trust me! Not only will it remove the tangles more efficiently, but you will also protect your hair from being torn and damaged.
3. Brush your hair consistently
If your hair is easy to tangling, itâ€™s probably not a good idea to let it down all day (especially in the wind) without brushing it. Brush your hair 2-3 times a day using a soft bristle brush, especially before a shower and before sleeping. Be gentle while brushing, ladies!
4. Protect your hair while you sleep
Use a soft Hair ring and tie your ponytail/bun very lightly at the top of your head.
5. Choose the right products
Avoid any products that contain alcohol. Although there is a whole list of ingredients we recommend to avoid when choosing your hair products (which we wrote about in this blog post about Organic products), alcohol is really the one that you want to avoid. It really dries out your hair and makes it more prone to tangling. Instead, go for natural, sulfate and alcohol free products, or those specifically designed for tangled hair.
