How To Detangle Hair Without Damaging It
I have fine medium length wavy hair. I have been really focusing on trying to grow it longer. The key to growing it longer is keeping it from getting damaged. My hair tangles very easily after washing it and when I sleep on it. With trial and error with all types of products and tools, I discovered my go steps to less damage and detangling the right way. I purchased the Wet brush that is meant for detangling hair. I never realized that brushing my hair with the incorrect brush when my hair is wet or dry can really do damage over time. This brush was really life changing for my hair. I use it on my wet hair once I am out of the shower or even sometimes in the shower after conditioning. The bristles are really soft and when you use it, it doesn’t pull at your hair at all. I start from the bottom of my hair and work my way up. I have noticed I was losing a lot less hair when I started using this. It is worth trying to prevent further damage in the future. I will not go without it. There is also a product I will use while brushing my hair wet that helps with any knots. It is the Dry Bar Prep Rally, Prime and prep detangler. This product has definitely been a game changer with my hair. Not only does it help with any tangles, it also is heat protectant. So, when you use any hot tools, blow dryer, straightener, or curling iron it will help protect your hair from any damage. I will apply only when my hair is wet all over. This is something I will not go without after washing my hair. I lose less hair and after blowing drying it leaves it soft and smooth and smelling amazing.
ALWAYS detangle your curly hair wet!
So when I was a kid, I learned the hard way that you can't brush dry, curly hair. I know it's doable for straight haired-peeps, but curly hair is NOT having it. Even if you NEED to detangle it, but can't shower, it's a good idea to spray it with water. Seriously, little spray bottles of water and conditioner are our friends. My 3A curled hair mom taught me how to brush my hair properly after. I've added my own twists to it, but here's what I do: 🌿 STEPS 🌿 ￼Start with wet hair. As said above! Yes, your hair is more sensitive and elastic wet. But dry brushing disrupts curl patterns. Also, use lukewarm - cold water in the shower! Hot water makes curls more frizzy. ￼Apply generous detangler/conditioner I've found that any conditioner, even non leave-in, can work. If you use leave-in, make sure it's a silicone-free conditioner so it doesn't build up in your hair. My favorite is the SheaMoisture - Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditionerwhich I've reviewed as a great, moisturizing product with rice protein and coconut oil. It has no sulfates or silicones, and has helped make my best hair days. Here, I also tried the Carol's Daughter - Black Vanilla Moisture & Shine Hydrating Conditioner ($10.99 for 12 oz) It has a delicious, warm scent, with nourishing biotin and Vitamin B5. The only con is it has some silicones, so this may be better as a wash-out product in the shower. ￼Start with your fingers, and work from the bottom Basically: little by little. Your fingers can work out the biggest tangles better than a wide tooth comb can. Also, brushing from the top of your head tends to break hair there, causing the dreaded frizz halo. Starting from the bottom means less tugging- And even if there is breakage, it's in a section you can trim. ￼Pick gentle tools. Wide tooth combs work out big knots- Whereas fine tooth ones can get stuck in tangles and tug at more hairs. I use the Wet brush - Original Detangler The bristles are gentle and bendy- So they won't snap through stuck hair. Use it only after you’ve work out the biggest knots. The balls at the end of the bristles can get snagged, so this is best for your final touches. Still, with conditioner, it glides through hair like better- And it gently works through subtle tangles so my curl pattern can form neatly again. ￼Use preventative measures. Put your hair in a ponytail while you do sports. Make sure to wash it every week. Don’t neglect conditioning. And to REALLY amp up your curls after brushing, scrunch them with gel! What brushes do you guys recommend for detangling wet curly hair ?

I 💜 My Wet Brush!
I love love love my Wet Brush! My husband bought this for me a couple years ago (yes, I’ve been using this very brush for more than two years now) because he knows I will put my hair through hell. I will brush the heck out of it when it’s wet and not think twice. This brush was specifically created to cause as little damage to hair as possible while getting nots out of it when wet. It really does just that. When I first started using it, I had to get used to the feeling. It feels like it isn’t getting knots out because it doesn’t pull and tug like a regular brush. However, despite the feeling it actually does get the knots out. I’m also a big shedder, and this brush doesn’t pull nearly as much hair out of my head as a regular brush does. This brush works like it says it does, it’s inexpensive (about $7) and is made to last (like I said, I’ve been using the same one daily for more than two years now!). I highly recommend. Wet brush - Wet Original Brush
long hair vs short hair
I’ve always loved changing up my hair style! But the one hairstyle I regretted was chopping off my hair into a bob lol. The short hair required a lot less maintenance but it didn’t fit my face shape very well. It also was super obvious when I gained a few pounds since I gain weight in my face easily. Longer hair makes it easier to hide chubby cheeks if I have gained a little weight or just ate a salty meal the night before 😂 With my long hair I have to shampoo, leave in conditioner, brush it out, air dry/blow dry, but I enjoy the way it looks so much more! What I use: TRESemmé - 24 Hour Body Healthy Volume Shampoo aussie - Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner Wet brush - Wet Original Brush

Quarantine Glowup: Hair Rehab 🌺
With not having to leave the house everyday, now is the perfect time to give your hair a much-needed break from heat and styling! The first step for getting your hair back to its healthiest state is to use a sulfate-free shampoo that does not strip your hair of its natural oils. Follow up with conditioner like you normally would, and of course give it a blast of cold water at the end to seal the cuticle and help prevent damage. Next, use a microfiber towel to gently wrap your hair on top of your head to dry. I leave it up like this while I do my post-shower skincare. After a few minutes, gently squeeze (don’t rub!!) your hair in the towel and unwrap it. Take a wide toothed comb and gently detangle your hair. This is when I put a small amount of styling spray, my Ouai Wave Spray, throughout my hair and scrunch with my hands! Then I just let it air dry, don’t apply any heat! This should leave your hair soft but with volume and movement. Then before bed, spray dry shampoo at the roots. I really like to use Living Proof’s Dry Shampoo. On dark hair it does appear white, but it soaks in overnight. Putting the dry shampoo in your hair BEFORE it gets dirty really works better than trying to soak up grease that is already there! I have really been trying to go 4-5 days in between my showers, which is SO much longer than usual! A lot of people believe that you can “train” your hair to become less greasy over time if you stretch out the days in between washes, so I am trying this out while I don’t have anywhere to be! Something else that helps your hair to be healthier is to take a boar bristled brush and brush it from the roots of your hair down to the ends, which helps distribute your hair’s natural oils to dryer parts of your hair. Just power through a few weeks of dirty hair and you’ll be on the way to low-maintenance locks in no time!
Wetbrush VS. Tangle Teezer, both $14, Guess Which Wins!👩🦰👩🦳👩
My husband doesn't like TANGLE TEEZER - Compact Styler Detangling Hair Brush. He thinks it feels uncomfortable in his hands. So I bought tWet brush - Teal Swirl Detangler. After using it for a couple of days, I am in love! I gonna compare the 2 drugstore brushes in this review. I have long, thick, wavy hair that tangles easily. The Wet Brush is amazing, and you can even call it "magical."👍👍👍 As it claims, you can use it for both dry and wet hair. It can detangle my matted hair without causing pain. It doesn't cause harm to the hair as well. I can brush my hair thoroughly. The design of the Wet Brush is counterintuitive. Its bristles are softer and more flexible than bristles on standard brushes. The Wet Brush makes quick work of even the biggest knots and really does detangle my hair – wet or dry – quickly and painlessly. But there’s a downside😢😢😢: after several months of use, those magical bristles began to fall out, until the brush simply wasn’t effective anymore. As for Tangle Teezer, which seems to be the Wet Brush’s main competitor, it's a completely different shape than the Wet Brush. It has no handle but is formed to fit comfortably in your hand. The bristles are stiffer than the Wet Brush bristles, and they don’t have the same ball tip. They also alternate between long and short bristles. In my case, TT brush isn't good for wet hair like Wet brush as the latter has a harder comb. It simply does not get through the knots and tangles, certainly not any better than a regular brush. Also, I don't like the way the brush felt in our hand and I much prefer having a handle. So in terms of detangling ability, the Wet Brush wins. But durability is an issue, if you plan to buy a Wet Brush, know that you may need to replace it sooner than you would like. No brush is perfect for everyone. Tangle Teezer might be ideal for other kinds of hair. For us, the Wet Brush is still the best option, but I will be keeping my eyes open for an equally effective but longer-lasting substitute.

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Hairbrush😍😍😍
Hi sis, do you know the importance of brushing your hair? If you brush your hair correctly, you can get a natural shine and get out the knots. At the same time, you can stimulate your scalp, thereby increasing blood circulation to your scalp and bringing oxygen and nutrients to the hair stem. So today, I want to share with you how to choose the right brush! I will introduce several different kinds of hairbrushes. I hope this is helpful. Many of you must have this kind of hair brushes. It can quickly detangle your hair without causing a huge pain. It has a flat, wide, and rectangular surface that allows the brush to move the way you want, and it can smooth your hair without breaking the natural pattern of wavy and curly hair. One of my favorites is REVLON - Straight & Smooth Paddle Hair Brush. This is a perfect brush when you are in a rush. The holes on the back allow air to pass through during blow dry, so it can speed up the process. You can try brushes like Wet brush - Black Flex Dry Brush 3. Teasing Brush It can add volume to your hair. It can help you to add texture to ponytails and create a firm base at the roots when clipping in hair extensions. If your hair is fragile, don't use this brush. I recommend REVLON - Moonlight Teasing Brush It has a long and skinny end, so it can part the hair in precise, clean sextions. It can also be used for backcombing your hair. You can find a bunch online or in drugstores. If you are interested in reading more about choosing hairbrushes, leave a comment! 😘
