S.O.S. Detangle: how to detangle your hair
S.O.S. Detangle! I usually don’t have a lot of tangles in my hair, but after a windy day out in nature my hair gets tangled quite badly. When I was a child, I really dreaded the moment when my mother was about to brush out all the knots and tangles out of my hair after a busy “play-day”. Removing those nasty “cobwebs”, as I often call them, you need sufficient force to get through those knots but also tenderness not to harm your hair.
S.O.S. Detangle: My 5 tips for detangling:
- A quality brush is essential.
I always use one of my own brushes by ‘Delphin & Emerence’, which I designed to suit the needs above: force and tenderness.
- A brush suited to your hair type.
I for example have fine, blonde, slightly wavy hair so I use the Mistletoe – Tangle Power Soft, from my own brand. More curly hair types, need more power then me, so they have to pick the right one for them.
- Start at the ends.
When you start brushing, always start at the ends, working your way up to the scalp in sections. Don’t “chop” your hair, but let the brush do its magic for you.
- Smooth out.
When all the remains of a tangled hairdo are gone, you can smooth out your hair with a caring brush. They are designed to smooth out your hair in a natural way to give it back its shine. A good caring brush will spread sebum onto the hairshaft to nourish it.
- Finishing touch.
Especially after a windy day, your hair might need some extra nourishment after brushing. Take one or two drops of a natural oil, rub it between your palms and gently go through your hair lengths.
