6 Do's and Don'ts of Detangling Hair

There is a lot of advice about hair on the internet. A lot of this is not curated or checked by professionals – and can actually damage your hair – so it's important that you have reliable sources to turn to when you need serious hair help!

Here at the Knot Dr, detangling is our speciality. We've been in the hair industry for years and have worked hard to perfect our range of detangling brushes. In this guide, we've put together our Do's and Don'ts for detangling so that you can get tangle-free hair without the hassle!

3 Hair Detangling Don'ts

Let's start with the negatives. Many things can go wrong when trying to detangle your hair, especially if you follow any advice you find without checking it. Here are the top three things you should not do when detangling your hair:

Don't use hair products that are full of unnatural chemicals. Shampoos and conditioners can damage and tangle your hair if they have a chemical-filled unnatural formula. They can strip the hair's natural oils, making it feel greasy and making your scalp unhappy.

Don't sleep with your hair down. If you have long hair, try braiding your hair for bed or putting it in a ponytail or bun. Make sure to use a soft hair tie like a scrunchie, so there is no pull on the hair.

Don't use badly made hair brushes to detangle your hair. Many companies will pitch their brushes as 'detangling' but won't actually have any detangling technology. Be careful where you source your hairbrush from.

3 Hair De-tangling Do's

Now that we've told you what not to do, we can get into our tips for finding some detangling products that will work to keep your hair smooth and sleek! Here are three top tips for tangle-free hair:

Do find a shampoo and conditioner that works with your hair type. Most of the time, hair will be happy with a naturally formulated shampoo and conditioner that softens and cleanses your hair using essential oils extracted from natural sources. If you have curly hair, you should use hair products that help your curls thrive!

Do brush your hair throughout the day. Your hair is constantly exposed to changing elements – it can tangle in the wind, tangle as you tie it up at work or the gym – there are many reasons why it could get a bit knotty. Taking your brush on the go and regularly brushing out the knots will help your hair stay sleek and prevent further tangling.
