6 tips to prevent your hair from tangling

Tangled hair can lead to hair fall and frizzy hair. It is essential to maintain a proper hair care routine to prevent your hair from tangling. Here are some tips you can follow.

Brush your hair before the wash

Make sure to brush your hair before hair wash to get rid of knots. Use a soft-bristle brush to brush smoothly through tangled hair and avoid brushing wet hair after the wash. 

Condition your hair

Conditioning your hair is essential to get soft and tangle-free tresses. After applying the conditioner to your hair, use your fingers to remove knots gently. 

Dry gently

Drying your hair by twisting and rubbing can lead to tangles and breakage. Instead, pat your hair dry and gently squeeze the water out using a towel. Avoid using a blow dryer and let your hair dry naturally.


Moisturising your hair can prevent it from tangling. After drying your hair, use a hair moisturiser or a serum to lock the moisture. This will also prevent your hair from getting frizzy.

Protect your hair from the wind

Going out with open hair in the wind can lead to tangles due to dust and pollution. Make sure to tie your hair tight into a bun or a braid when you go out. You can also cover your hair with a scarf to prevent tangles.

Hair care when you sleep

Opt for a satin silk pillowcase to avoid friction between your hair and the pillow which can cause tangles. You can also tie your hair into a loose braid to avoid tangling.
