Start brushing a few inches from the bottom of your hair and work your way up in small portions with quick strokes to prevent hair breakage.
The ideal time to brush hair is when it is dry, but if you must, use a towel to pat the hair dry first. To prevent hair damage, use a wide-toothed comb designed for wet hair.
You can use a variety of brushes on dry hair because it is less likely to be damaged. A paddle brush might be appropriate for straight or curly hair.
Don't count every brushstroke. Focus on brushing with quality to remove tangles and knots without causing damage.
Wet hair is more fragile, so let your hair air-dry before brushing. Use a conditioning hair product or de-tangling spray to smooth hair strands before brushing.
To distribute natural oils on the scalp down to the strands and achieve a smooth, shiny appearance, brush from root to tip occasionally, but make sure the brush bristles are soft to avoid snagging.
Apply conditioner to the tips of your hair and work your way upwards towards the roots. Leave on for 5 minutes, comb your hair to detangle, and rinse.
Reduce tension in your hair with detangling sprays. They contain ingredients like shea butter to soften hair and can be used on both dry and damp hair.
Apply a few drops of olive oil to your hair after detangling to prevent brittleness. Use carrier oil, like coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, or sweet almond oil along with essential oils like lavender, tea tree, or rosemary to avoid dryness.
Moisturise your hair with water to make detangling easier. Use a spray bottle filled with water to spritz some on your hair before detangling.
Start detangling your hair from the bottom to prevent hair breakage and pain at the scalp.
Separate your hair into sections with your fingers to remove most of the tangles before combing.
Use hydrating hair masks to provide instant hydration to your hair. You can choose from a variety of masks in the market or make one at home using simple kitchen ingredients like egg, yoghurt, honey, and banana.
