Tangled hair is one of the most frustrating things to deal with in terms of your beauty routine. It's messy, it can be painful and it can also be a real time suck when you're in a rush.
If you find that your hair tends to tangle really easily, it could mean that your mane is in need of a trim, but it could just be a combination of winter scarf hair and bad luck. To help you stay on top of tangle-prone tresses, just follow the simple haircare tips below.
Keep your hair hydrated
Silky hair that doesn't tangle as often, or as much, comes from good hydration, so make sure to use a nourishing conditioner on your hair, and apply a leave-in mask once a week.
Chill out... literally
It's winter, so this is a WAY easier said than done, but once you've rinsed out your conditioner, give your hair a quick blast with cold water. The low temperature closes the cuticles, making them lie flat, which increases shine and overall smoothness.
Try a comb
You might find the detangling process a lot easier with a wide-tooth comb than with a brush, whether you do it in the shower with a ton of conditioner on your locks, or when your hair is dry.
If you don't have a comb at your disposal, a paddle brush and plenty of detangling spray will get the job done in the gentlest way possible.
As a general rule, we recommend that you never go to sleep with wet hair. You might tell yourself it's almost dry, but the next morning you'll regret it when you have to spend precious snooze minutes working out the resulting knots.
Investing in a silk pillowcase could also be a good idea as they tend to be gentler on the hair shaft, keeping it smooth while you move around in your sleep.
