A key component to detangling your hair without damage is the shampoo you use. You need strong hair in order for it to withstand the detangling process. A nutrient rich shampoo helps to keep the hair strong. Shampoos full of chemicals, especially sulfates, can cause damage to the hair, making it more susceptible to breakage while combing or brushing.
Most of us are not very kind to our hair when we are young. We brush it harshly, use hot styling utensils, and products that are full of harsh chemicals. These all take a toll, causing damage to the hair cuticle and follicle which can lead to hair thinning and loss. We wake up one day and find that our hair breaks with the simple act of combing.
If this has been happening to you it can be reversed. Start by using a shampoo such as ProOrganic by Pura d’Or. It is made up entirely of nutrients proven to strengthen hair and repair follicle damage. When your hair is wet detangle in sections with your fingers. Run your fingers through the length of your hair, gently pulling out the knots. Then air dry and use a wide tooth brush or comb to smooth out your hair making sure not to pull sharply.
Treat your head right and it will reward you with thick great looking hair for a long time.
