Men who like to keep their curls short have little to worry about tangles. But, for men to prefer medium to long curls need to know how to avoid hair tangles and knots. It’s important because curly hair is naturally dry and tends to tie itself in knots during the day, especially when washing.
Here are a few quick tips to avoid hair tangles and knots for men with curly hair.
Detangle So There Aren’t Any More Tangles
The first step to avoiding hair tangles and knots is to prevent tangles in the first place. But since it is often unavoidable, detangling your hair is the best way to prevent hair tangles and knots. Before you wash your hair, make sure you detangle your hair, starting from the tips of your hair and moving up to the scalp.
Spend Some Time in the Shower to Run a Wide-Toothed Comb Through Your Hair
When in the shower, don’t forget to run a wide-toothed comb or your fingers through your hair while applying conditioner, so you avoid hair tangles and knots following the shower. Conditioners are rich in ingredients that aid in detangling your hair.
Pat Dry Your Hair
Following the shower, always pat dry your hair, as any rubbing can damage your hair and cause a lot of tangles. So pat dry your hair and let them air dry.
Handle your tangles and knots softly so you can spend less time taking care of your hair and more time enjoying life with your curls.
