    Default How do you keep your hair from tangling?

    I haven't worn my hair down for more than half an hour in months, but I'd really like to wear it down for the first day of school to show off how long it's gotten. Yes, vain little me . Any tips for keeping tangles to a minimum? I'm going to keep a comb with me so I can hopefully comb it out at least once.

    It should be fine indoors. Windy days are not long hair's friend

    I just finger comb mine when I'm bored in class. That seems to help.

    I keep a small wide-toothed comb in my purse and I just give random sections of my hair a good rake through in between classes. It's usually not tangled per se, more like just disorderly, so I don't have to worry about damaging it that way.

    The only way I can detangle my hair while dry is using my tangle teezer. When it starts to tangle I use it. Plus half-ups and ponytails/braids show a bit of length too.

    I loove my tangle teezer! So much easier to detangle! Also fx silk drops helped me tremendously to prevent tangling if you use cones.

    While this is totally counterintuitive, I've found that the more I try to touch and detangle my hair the worse it will get (assuming it isn't really windy or anything, just standard moving around). The reason is that while initially it will remain untangled, as soon as I start to walk it tangles slightly again, then I'm stuck trying to detangle and get if perfect, then once I do the process repeats with me constantly worrying about the tangles.

    On the other hand, if you just ignore your hair because you know it looks great and keep your comb/fingers out of it until you get home, the tangles likely won't be that bad. I've often found that it will want to tangle to a certain amount and then not really get worse as the day goes on. So whether I comb it out fifteen minutes into my day or at the end I'm still dealing with the same amount of tangles (more or less).

    Just my two cents.

    Interesting. I will try this next time I wear my hair down. Thank you. I am enlightened.

    Wear it up until you get to school; something simple, like a hairstick-held bun. Nip into the bathroom, and take it down. Presto fresh-from-bun hair! Especially handy on windy days.

    A light oiling can help with tangling, ditto a 'cone-y serum if you use 'cones.

    I find using a little oil on the length stops it tangling as bad.
