Do layers prevent your hair from tangling as much?

This is just conjecture here:

Maybe a little for really straight hair, in that the shorter the hair, the less likely it is to tangle, so since layers involve some hair being shorter, those shorter hairs might be less likely to tangle than their longer counterparts.

On the other hand, i imagine layers would make tangling worse for curlies, since there would be ends pointing different directions, all over the place, all of which could interact with other strands and lead to trouble.

Very perceptive of you, Intransigentia! I have curly hair and I can't wait till I can grow out my layers! They definitely make my hair tangle more than I remember it doing when it was all one length.

Thanks! Sometimes I believe it's real; sometimes I think it's just how I had the lighting set up that day. I think today I'm going to believe it's real, to make myself happy :disco:

My layers (Which I hate) have made my hair less tangly (sp?) and I'm a curly.

I'm only a half-wavy but I do definitely get more tangles when I have layers.

I have almost totally straight hair and layers make my tangling worse. They also make it hard to keep up with split ends, leading to more tangles.

Tangles made my hair worse when I had them, and wow were they extreme. ;)

I have really thick wavy hair and my layers make it easier for me to detangle my hair. I love my layers :)

Layers are a nightmare for me, I've never had much trouble with tangles when my hair was one length. I often put my hair in half-ups when I want it down, to get the layers out of the way and I don't have as much issues that way
