View Full Version : How do you detangle wet hair?



SeRe

All,
I use a wide tooth plastic comb to detangle wet hair. I would like to know how you detangle your hair.
Is buying a tangle teezer (teaser) worth it? What about a wet brush?
I do not own a single brush, I usually use plastic and wooden combs.
Sorry for the multiple posts and questions. I am serious about my hair game again after falling off the bandwagon for a while. I don't want to post all my questions in one thread, hence the different posts per topic.
Thanks!

Wide tooth comb. I would do it in the shower with the conditioner in my hair, then again after it was towel dried. In the past, that was the only way I could get all the knots out.

I'm constantly finger-combing my hair in the shower--when I rinse out the shampoo, the conditioners and the oil. It seems to help.

I don't comb my hair after the shower until I put in my leave-in conditioner and oil (and curl style milk if I use it). I comb from the top down (no tangles or snarls, after all the finger-combing in the shower--the leave-in and oil is like icing on a cake).

If I just rinse out my hair, I use a leave-in and oil, but comb from the bottom up, starting at the ends and work my way to the roots.

Good technique. so you just use your fingers then? No comb or brush?

I use a Vented Wet Brush (https://www.amazon.com/Beauty-Wet-Epic-Quick-Brush/dp/B01BE8XJOK/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1518757038&sr=8-5&keywords=vented+wet+brush) and LOVE it!
It is amazing on dry hair as well, and in Winter to combat static from the plastic I use the BBB version.

I don't do any wet detangling. Too much damage, and my curls respond by wrapping themselves around the comb or other curls and tying themselves in knots. Might simply be a curly hair problem. Maybe not. But it's not fun.

I use a seamless plastic, medium tooth comb; I don't own a brush. Detangling only happens on dry hair that has a little oil in it; daily, and both pre- and post-wash. Some leave-in conditioners work for detangling too, but my hair loves oils and it's cheaper to use something already on hand in the kitchen than buy another product.

Me neither, I never detangle in the shower, although my reasons are different. Which oil do you use?

I detangle before I shower. I use my fingers and a Mason Pearson Sensitive brush. I also put a bit of oil on the ends before showering.
I used to detangle in the shower with a tangle teaser-type brush and conditioner, but that seemed to give me much more breakage, no matter how gentle I was.

What about after you shower? Does your hair not knot when it's washed?

Either coconut or grapeseed, depending on what my hair seems to want. My scalp only likes coconut oil, but my length likes both. Grapeseed oil usually gets layered on top of aloe gel after washes or to fix coconut crunchiness. Occasionally I'll use olive oil on my ends, but not often since it can make my scalp itch.

I only rinse my hair with water most washes, then put some conditioner on the ends, and I don't really move my hair/head around that much while I'm washing - so it doesn't have a chance to tangle much. If I was piling it on top of my head or flipping it a lot or something, it might tangle more! :lol:

I don't. I wait until my hair is dry- especially now that I'm about classic length. It takes absolutely forever to detangle wet and the detangling constantly generates new tangles. And in the shower with conditioner is no better for me.

I wait until my hair is dry too, If I try to detangle while wet my hair is crazy knotty and I get more breakage/shedding. I tend to separate it in half then half again so there's less hair clumped together and it doesn't take as long to dry.
When it's dry I finger detangle and it's smooth and effortless again :) I have no chance of detangling in the shower even with conditioner, just results in breakage for me.

I second this :) I use a lot of conditioner on my length and let it soak for a while, which leaves my hair drastically softer and smoother, making it effortlessly super easy to gently and briefly run my plastic wide tooth comb through it after the shower. Then I run my wooden brush through it at night (and mornings) and itís also a breeze.

Agreed! My initial detangle is when I apply my conditioner, then I detangle again out of the shower when my hair is full of leave in, and also very wet. Detangling post-shower really helps me with product distribution.

I use a wide tooth comb in the shower, and a modified Denman brush outside the shower. I hope to try the shower Wet Brush soon. :o

The same thing works for me. Usually, when I rinse conditioner, the tangles come out right with it. Brushing or combing my hair when wet usually turns it into shed city.

I detangle in the shower under the water after I have conditioned. I have kinky coily hair, and detangling on dry hair is just asking for unnecessary breakage.

Once my hair is half way dry, Iíll finger detangle just to catch some way ward shed hairs.

I just (a number of weeks ago) discovered a "wet detangler" aka Wet Brush dupe. I got rid of my wide tooth combs, for real. I now when I need to wash, pre-detangle dry with a Tangle Teezer (to save my drain). There is a drain stopper in there, but it helps! And then after washing my hair goes into the (microfiber) towel and then I use my Wet Brush dupe. It is a game changer for me, literally.

I used to need to use very moisturizing conditioners so I wouldn't have too many tangles otherwise the WT comb would hurt when I combed through. I don't have this with the "wet detangler", not at all, it just glides through without tugging at my scalp or snagging.

I only use the tangle teezer on dry hair. It is not effective on my hair while wet. Can't sense the knots. Same with wide tooth combs. I bought an expensive EIA one that I never use. I only detangle after washing with my hair properly moisturized and full of slip. I comb with my cheap 5 year old conair comb. Part my hair in two sides and start from the bottom up. My hair texture is 2b/2c so I am unable to detangle if I let it dry uncombed.

When it's wet and comes out the towel, I divide my hair into 2 as well, and then detangle each side with my "wet detangler" aka Wet Brush 1.49 euro dupe. I still can't believe that; that was 1.49 well spent. OMG OMG that is such a great feeling for the cheapskate in me. LOL! :lol:

It makes finger-combing so much easier, because the running water is helping to straighten your hair while you finger-comb!

And it gets super slippery! The tangles just fall out of my hair (but then again my hair is pretty short, so not a lot of tangles). It was the best method for detangling when my hair was long.

Not me. Up until two washes ago, it was the only way I was able to detangle my hair without massive breakage. There was no way anything was going through my hair dry.
WTC and loads of conditioner were my friend. Then I would use WTC after I towel dried too but it was easy then, and no breakage, or extra shedding.

My college roommate had the same hair type as you (4c) and did what you do. She once fell asleep after a shower, and requested me to help her detangle it dry. I tried but it couldn't be done. Finally I had to spray it, then use a lot of leave in, and then I was able to brush it.

On that rare occasion when I DO get a knot/tangle, I stop when I reach the tangle and work through it when I have my leave-in and coconut oil in after I'm out of the shower--assuming said tangle/knot has survived.

For the most part, any tangles or knots I have had are gone before I'm out of the shower--the ROO* is a big help!

I've never heard that one before. I mean those hairs are already set to come out when you detangle right? I lose a very minimal amount of hair when I wash, like a quarter of a palmful, despite only detangling once a week. I think people think it's more because it comes out all at once, and not throughout the day.

I mean hair is more fragile wet when but that's why I detangle carefully to avoid breakage. My hair is also straighest wet which makes it easier to remove shed hairs. When I wet detangle I have maybe 2 snags? And they slip out easy! When I do it dry my shed increases because of all the breakage. There's hardly any bulbs at the end, just a bunch of snapped hair. Oh, the sound!

Separating dry curls, for me, makes me "lose" more hair. My sheds have a harder time coming out of the curls, creating tangles and snags.

It gets it all out, very gently. You still have to detangle carefully though, bottom to top and hold your hand above the brushing (but even if you don't, it doesn't tug or pull). I still am careful, as with anything!

Someone on here mentioned Conair do a dupe. I don't know who that was anymore (sorry). But if you can get the real thing, go for it. Conair do a lot of different brushes, so be careful, it has to be a "wet detangler".

Very true. I'm 28 and still don't know what my hair type is. It's straight till the ends, then it starts waving out. Also it's a bit different everyday. My roommate tells me my hair is straight, my colleague tells me its wavy LOL. My hair was quite curly as a child, so I have no idea what happened. My mom loved my curly hair, and is so disappointed that it's now less curly. I prefer my hair straighter though, so I'm very happy :-)

Very true. I'm 28 and still don't know what my hair type is. It's straight till the ends, then it starts waving out. Also it's a bit different everyday. My roommate tells me my hair is straight, my colleague tells me its wavy LOL. My hair was quite curly as a child, so I have no idea what happened. My mom loved my curly hair, and is so disappointed that it's now less curly. I prefer my hair straighter though, so I'm very happy :-)

Have you ever hairtyped for real, on here? If not you could do it! Just shampoo, condition, gently pat dry and let dry without manipulating it (no combing, no brushing). Then take a picture of the back of your head, and post it here. We'll help you out! :D

Henna normally loosens texture, but it upped my porosity to the point where I had more waves than before - no idea how that went, but it did that to me. So it depends on what henna does for your hair (smoothing, or roughening up the cuticle). I think my hair is just too F to handle henna properly.

I hated the TT...it ripped through my hair :tmi:

You mentioned fine knots....the wet brush is awesome for them (on me at least) for wet or dry hair!
I haven't used my fine tooth comb for knots since using the wet brush....which glides through my hair.

Agreed dont use a TT they rip and break hair, now that I threw mine away I don;t see any splits like before, I swear they thinned my hair strands.

II use a wet brush and when it hits a knot it stops and I take out the brush and undo the knot or cut it. Wet brush never just rips through.

I agree, sorry for my bad pics. These were the only ones I found that were not front pictures.

I am PM'd you one with my face seen. I'm a bit hesitant to post on public forums. Sorry but I'm a bit internet shy :-)

Your hair waviness type is similar to mine. If you wear your hair shorter, I suspect you'd find your hair becoming wavier.

As for pictures from the back, don't worry about it. We usually only ever post the back of our heads anyway.

Yes. When my hair is short, its 1c till about the last 2 inches, then it forms one wurl / wave, like it has been deliberately curled at the end. It's quite strange.

I use a Mebco detangling comb available at Sallys. I love that thing. After my shower I turban up my hair in a towel for a few minutes and then take it down and use my Mebco comb. I detangle and brush my hair before getting in the shower and never have tangles after a shower. I use a boatload of conditioner and rinse with my hair hanging down my back. I don't even need to start at the ends and work up. Years ago I had some issues with tangling when I was growing out color that I had corrected at a salon. I use a Wet Brush while my hair is air drying to make it straighter. It always goes up in a bun so I don't know why I bother other than to enjoy the time it takes my hair to dry and also brushing it during the drying process.

I just bought the wet brush, along with the katrina flamingo clip from ulta (ficcare dupe). It arrives in a week, will report back then :-)

Will do.

I learnt so many new things in like 2 weeks - freezing henna, can use shampoo and conditioner immediately after henna, ficcare clips, conditioners, wet brush etc. My newly acquired knowledge feels so good :)
