What Causes Hair Tangling?


1. Lack Of Hydration

when you lack moisture in your hair, the tendency of your hair tangling is very high because lack of moisture in the hair causes the hair outer shaft to break which makes your hair totally rough and then hard to comb. so keeping the hair moistured is very important.

2. Sleeping With Your Hair Down

Going to bed with your hair not being made or packed up could lead to serious hair tangling, so the best advice to give in this situation is to prevent going to bed with a damped hair and make sure you properly dry your hair before you fully go to sleep, failure to do this would result to you being in a tug of war with your hair the next morning.

3. Not Combing

If you really want to stop this big problem of hair tangling then you should live with the habit of combing your hair. when your hair is not properly combed or not combed at all, then the creation of kinks in your hair would be very high.

4. Untrimmed Dry Ends

Knowing that the hair is very fragile in nature so constant trimming of the dry ends is very important, dry end tends to splits and once this has happened then it cannot be repaired which would result in frequent tangling of the hair. so always take note of untrimmed ends as they play a very great role in preventing your hair from tangling.

5. Damaged Cuticles

When you choose to style your hair always bear in mind that constant styling and blowing of your hair could pose a problem which could lead to constant hair tangling. when your hair tends to be damaged, the external layer of your hair gets scraped off leaving the internal part exposed and unprotected, this could lead to the damage of the cuticles.



Now that you know what hair tangling and it causes are, i think this is the right time to talk about how to prevent hair tangling, this is one of he crucial part of this post and I would advise you pay close attention to this part.

How To Get Rid Of Hair Tangle



1. Condition Your Hair

when we talk about prevention of hair tangling, we mention Hair conditioning, though there are other means of preventing hair tangling which we would still be discussing in this post but hair conditioning is one of the best ways to fully prevent this hair tangling issue.  when you condition your hair it is best you leave the product to stay on your hair for a while before you wash off, and don’t just wash it off without adding extra moisture-locking conditioner as they help for easy combing of the hair.

2. Use A Wide Toothed Comb

When preventing hair tangling, I would strongly advise that you make use of a wide-toothed comb as the help to comb your hair without causing any damage to your hair. you might ask yourself why i am against round brush and rat-tailed combs, this is because when you make use of this kind of combs and brush they end up exposing your scalp which would in turn cause damages to your cuticles.

3. Using Detangling Products

Another very effective way of stopping hair tangling easily is by making use of detangling products like detangling sprays, serums, and conditionals. This products helps to stop hair tangling in a very fast and effective way. all you just have to do is to apply this product on the areas where you have your knots and then gently brush from the root to the base or you can also use your fingers to fasten this process a little bit.

4. Oil Your Hair Regularly

Oiling your hair keeps you at the safe side. when you add oil frequently on your hair this keeps your hair in a moist state and always easy to comb at all times, you could use some coconut oil on your hair as it not only untangle your hair but also adds extra good benefits to your hair.

5. Avoid Using Heat Styling Tools

When you make use of heat styling tools just like straightener, blow dryer, curling irons, they tend to dry the hair up which is what we are majorly preventing. so if you would make use of any of this product I would advise you make use of heat protectants before you start heat styling your hair as they help to prevent your hair from getting dry.

6. Go Easy With The Towel

When you are done in the shower and want to dry your hair with your towel, going easy with the towel so as to prevent your hair from falling off. when you tend to vigorously dry your hair with your towel it disturbs the structure of the cuticle resulting in split ends which is not a good one.
