Tame unruly hair without damaging it
To deal with curly, frizzy or unruly hair, we need to learn how to take care of it without damaging it. Let the true nature of your hair speak for itself.
Taming your hair, whether it's styling, detangling or straightening it can sometimes be a mission impossible... But is it just a matter of having a bad hair day or is it related to your hair type?
There are two different types:
Hair that is unruly by nature. Hair that is curly, frizzy or coiled is less elastic and tends to tangle easily, making it more difficult for sebum to reach the entire length of the hair making styling more difficult. This is also a common cause of dry hair. In fact, dry hair tends to easily become tangled because the hair cuticles cling to each other, and hair rips when removing these pesky knots. It becomes a real hair nightmare!
Hair can also become unruly over time, due to chemical treatments, excessive heat (straightening treatments or irons, blow-drying...) or repeated exposure to UV rays which cause alterations to the hair shaft and lift the cuticle. The hair subsequently becomes more porous and loses its suppleness.
It seems easy enough, but we don't always have the right technique for detangling our hair, especially when it's very dry.
The best time is after showering, while your hair is still damp hair and towel-dried. And of course, after using a conditioning and nourishing treatment.
To avoid "ruining" your curls or giving a "mousse" effect to curly hair, you should detangle it with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb, but never with a brush. To remove any knots, comb from the bottom and back up as you work up towards the roots.
To prevent knots, you can also opt for a satin pillowcase to keep your hair hydrated during the night and avoid it becoming tangled. Sleep like a princess and wake up with hair like one!
