All Tangled Up
By Crown Affair
Your hair is more vulnerable than you may think. Especially while it’s wet. Why? The proteins that your hair is mostly made up of form weaker bonds when wet, causing your hair to be prone to breakage and damage. Wet hair is also more susceptible to getting stretched out, and unfortunately, your strands don’t just bounce back into place.
So when it comes to detangling, especially wet hair, we recommend you incorporate the following steps into your post-wash rituals. First, gently squeeze the excess water out of your hair before wrapping it in a towel. Opt for a microfiber towel, rather than cotton, then squeeze and blot your hair so the water can absorb quicker. If you’ve been using a brush on wet hair, try using a wide toothed comb instead. The wider placement of the comb’s teeth are designed to easily work through your tangles and prevent your strands from getting stuck in the bristles of a brush. Then try combing your hair in sections to detangle - start at the bottom, move your way to the middle, then up to the roots. Finish up by applying an oil to work out any bigger tangles with your comb, plus you’ll get that little extra boost of moisture and shine.
There is power in acknowledging our vulnerability in other parts of our life, so why not do the same when caring for your hair? Making small tweaks to your routine and choosing products that better support your hair’s vulnerability all add up to your long term hair health.
