The Knotty Girl’s Guide to Detangling Hair

Gigi Hadid Tangly Hair

For a sensy-scalp girl (or guy), there’s nothing worse than that feeling when you get out of the shower and your mane’s a mess. Well say goodbye to your hair woes, because we’ve got the detangling guide that will give you Goldilocks strands IRL.  


STEP 1

Start with a special brush made for detangling as it won’t pull on the strands or catch any hairs. We love the Sheila Stotts extension removal brush or the Harry Josh Pro Tools detangling brush. 

STEP 2

If the hair has knots in it, a deep conditioning is key. Before attempting to brush through strands apply a deep conditioning treatment like Christophe Robin Color Fixator Wheat Germ Mask for 20 minutes, then rinse.

STEP 3

After rinsing hair, avoid scrubbing the scalp and roughing up the hair with a towel. The harsh fibers from a towel can irritate the hair and cause more knots and tangles. Instead, use an old cotton t-shirt to gently remove moisture then coat strands in leave-in conditioner.

STEP 4

When brushing out tangles, always start at the bottom of the strand and work your way up. If the hair is particularly knotty, work on small sections at a time.

PRO TIP

Bear in mind that when hair is wet it becomes more elastic (meaning it stretches out) and can easily break. It’s important to treat wet strands delicately to keep the hair in the best possible condition.
