Long hair is prone to tangles. Ripping through tangles with a comb or a brush will damage your hair — making it even more prone to tangling and worse, breakage. Follow these tips and even if you have the most fragile hair, enhance it’s health and maximize control of tangles throughout the day.
Start in the shower.
Use hair care products that are designed to prevent breakage, like Mane ‘n Tail Herbal-Gro Shampoo. Your goal is to fortify your hair from root to tip, leaving hair stronger and longer. Follow it up with Herbal-Gro Conditioner, eliminate the frizz and the look of split ends.
Better your brush.
Minimize the amount of damage caused by brushing by investing in a good quality brush. Boar bristle round brushes are always a must, but if you have thick hair, a pin brush is suitable also. Sally Beauty carries a wide variety of boar bristle round brushes.
Give yourself some room.
Whether it’s in the bathroom or your bedroom, make sure your work space has elbow room and a mirror!
