Use a wide-tooth comb to brush out those knots and tangles. That’s it—no need to rinse!

3 TIPS FOR DETANGLING YOUR HAIR

Now that you know how to use a hair detangler spray, you’re likely wondering if there are other hair care tips you can use to get rid of knots and tangles—and there are! Check out the steps below to manage tangled hair.

TIP #1: BRUSH THE RIGHT WAY

Before you start going at your mane with a hair brush, consider your method. To avoid causing any knots or tangles (and help detangle those that are already there) start by brushing at your ends and gradually working your way up to your root. 

TIP #2: USE HAIR CARE PRODUCTS TO HELP YOU DETANGLE

Aside from hair detangler, there are other hair care products that can lend you a hand in detangling your locks. Curious about what to use? The L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Break Proof Lotion strengthens fragile hair, forms a protective shield to defend against UV rays and heat styling, and provides added slip and detangling. Apply a dime-sized amount to towel-dried hair and gently work through your mane to evenly distribute.

TIP #3: KEEP YOUR HAIR HYDRATED

Dry hair tends to get knotty and tangled quickly, which is why it isn’t a bad idea to add a hair mask or deep conditioner into your regimen. Hello to hydration and tangle-free hair! Give the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, which helps hydrate each strand for silkier, softer hair, a try (pairing it with the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Conditioner). Apply it after washing your strands, leave on for one minute, then rinse. Fast and effective!
