Feel like you need to wash your hair several times a week because it feels tangled? The important thing is not to detangle your curly hair every day but rather to have it moisturized every day. It will be more supple and will therefore tend to be less tangled: a beautiful virtuous circle, isn't it? But how to facilitate detangling and moisturizing at the same time? And without risking weighing down the mass and breaking your hair fiber? We tell you everything:
Detangling on wet hair
The very first tip we can give you, and not the least, is to detangle your hair when it is wet. Wet hair fiber will make knots slide around more until they loosen and unravel, whereas on dry hair, knots are more likely to tighten until they break.
One detangling per week is more than enough because the more you detangle your hair the more sensitive it will be. Don't you exfoliate your skin every day? The same goes for your hair!
We know that some people with textured hair have knots that can be visible in their hair. If this is the case, your hair is probably lacking in deep moisturizing, but also in daily moisturizing. Consider moisturizing your hair every week with our Repair Time treatment: its composition of aloe vera, jojoba oil and coconut oil will help accentuate bounce and soften the fiber for knots that glide through until you detangle! Also, choose a moisturizer that is appropriate for your texture..
During the application of moisturizing products
To minimize breakage of your curly hair and allow knots to be gently removed, remember to detangle with your fingers or brush when applying a moisturizer:
- while applying your conditioner, to detangle during your hair routine.
- after applying your moisturizing mask to make detangling even easier.
- after shower, with a leave-in or moisturizing hair milk.
Combining moisture and detangling will benefit your curly hair in the long run: it will be softer, stronger, better defined and with fewer tangles.
To choose your conditioner, you have two choices:
- the Pink Paradise which is for the most difficult knots.
- the Cream Conditioner which is lighter but still moisturizing.
Protect your curly hair to avoid tangles
In order to get your hair back with fewer knots in the morning or over several days, you can use protective hairstyles (braids, twists, etc.). Loose hair is more prone to tangles because of movement and external attacks such as friction or wind.
