Smooth hair starts even before you shower. Keyword: brushes! Comb your mane properly before each wash. In this way, felt nodules cannot become even stronger. Your power duo in the fight against tangles is shampoo and conditioner. However, avoid applying the shampoo directly to the hair. First, foam it in your hands and then apply the foam. And of course, the conditioner should not be missing when washing your hair. This smoothes the hair and the comb slides through better.
After washing you can then press the hairstyle dry with a towel, but please do not rub. Otherwise, wet hair will become too messy. If you struggle with tangles despite these steps, you can use a detangling spray. A regular hair treatment (weekly) and visits to the hairdresser also prevent matted hair. Split ends are removed in good time and the hairstyle remains beautifully shiny.
Do you often have tousled hair at the back of your head? A braid, while you sleep, can prevent your hair from getting too messy. The best tip: A pillowcase made of silk or smooth satin also protects the hair and ends. This not only prevents knots but also split ends.
If the wool on your head is matted, you can't avoid combing it. On the one hand, you should adapt your care products such as shampoo and conditioner, but you can also change your entire hair care routine. You can also adjust your brush or comb to your hair type. For curls, for example, a wide-toothed comb works better. Brushes with natural bristles are good for sensitive, damaged hair. For normal hair, flat paddle brushes are the best choice.
Is it better to comb knotted hair before or after drying it? It is better to let the mane dry first. Because if you comb your wet hair, you often damage it without knowing it. The reason: They are much more sensitive when they are wet. If you still need to be quick, you can simply gently brush your locks with a smoothing leave-in spray before blow-drying. As always, always brush the tips first and then carefully work your way up. This prevents your hair from breaking and tangles are gently removed. Absolute no-go when it comes to tangles: tearing or pulling when combing.
Would you have thought it: the right hairstyle also prevents tangles. Long hair is often affected by dryness and knots. Of course, you could now opt for a short hairstyle. But we have a better tip than using scissors. Instead of always wearing your hair open, there are many styling ideas to tame the hairstyle.
Headbands or statement clips are particularly popular right now. How about this for a change? Because they not only look cool but also ensure that the hairstyle stays in place. And that too in wind and weather. No wonder they are so popular. Still popular: Sleek braid hairstyles with colorful scrunchies. Try it out!
Using extensions incorrectly or not caring for them properly can also cause your hair to become matted. If the detangling spray and brush don't help, the only thing to do is to go to your trusted hair salon. The professional then decides whether the use of scissors is necessary or not.
Dry heating air, wet and cold weather, and a wool hat - your hair goes through a lot during the dark season. Particularly dry heating air can quickly remove the moisture from the mane. The result: statically charged hair or entanglements. An extra portion of care in the form of hair treatments is important in the winter months to restore suppleness to the hairstyle.
A hairdryer with ion technology is also helpful in the fight against felt knots. When styling, this not only ensures that the hairstyle dries faster. Thanks to the ion function, the cuticle coats itself. The output: The hair shines and is easier to comb. Our hairdryer tip: Just use the cold air setting from time to time. You can also protect your mane in this way.

Mix the flesh of the avocado with a little olive oil until it has a creamy consistency. Simply apply the treatment to your mane and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Then wash with shampoo as usual. Yess! You can look forward to smooth hair again.
