The most tricky part of having thick, curly or natural hair is the struggle of knowing how to detangle the worst knots! Today we're sharing some of our go-to techniques for avoiding the headache (literally and figuratively):
Look in the Mirror
It's super important that you're able to see the knot when you're working it out, so grab a mirror to have handy (or get close to a mirror) during the process!
Work from the Bottom
Instead of pulling the hairs above the knot, focus on the ones beneath it first.
Use Detangling Products
Get a comb that's specifically made for your type of hair or for tangles, as well as a detangler solution or some conditioner that you can work through your hair while you de-knot.
Section it Out
It's easier to get knots out when you section out your hair and work section by section.
Take a Break
De-knotting can be frustrating, so you may feel a sense of impatience once you are in the middle of the process. That's okay! Simply take a break and return to it later.
Sleep With an Updo
A great way to avoid future knots is to sleep with an updo and keep your hair tame while you're getting those much needed Zzz's.
Get a Silk Pillowcase
Replace your cotton pillowcase for a silk one - it's stylish and soft, plus it helps lessen your tangles!
Grab a Burlyband
Burlybands are the ideal hair tie for thick, curly and natural hair and they don't snag, leaving your hair smooth and tangle-free!
We hope these tips helped you detangle and love your beautiful thick hair even more!
