6 Tips to Detangle Your Hair without Ripping it Out! Celebrity Stylist, Nelson J, Guest Expert! PLUS Discount Code!


Celebrity hair stylist, Nelson J is no stranger to this blog. Here’s a great piece from  Nelson’s newsletter that YOU and I can both use to get gorgeous hair as seen on the recent red carpet events!




If your hair becomes hopelessly tangled, try a deep conditioner or moisturizing oil before you resign yourself to a short hairstyle.

Here are some tips for you below from our experts.

Choose a hair treatment. The ordinary conditioner is worth trying if you haven’t already, but if your hair is severely tangled, you may need to resort to another option. Deep conditioner like (Moisture Healing Mask $23) is great for restoring moisture to your hair and making them easier to untangle, while detangling conditioners are meant specifically to add more slip to your hair.




Wet your hair slightly. Dampen your hair with a spray bottle of water, or briefly holding it under a shower or sink at low water pressure. Most hair treatments are meant to be applied to damp hair, but if you let the hair become dripping wet, it may be more susceptible to breakage. Try Styling Conditioner Smooth $20, a great hair detangle spray to keep hair moist without adding weight.

Rub the treatment into your hair. Take a handful of the chosen treatment, or use up to two handfuls if you have hair that grows past your shoulders. Apply the treatment thoroughly to all parts of your hair, including the ends. Rub it into each section of your hair separately, rather than across your entire scalp at once, to avoid tangling your hair further.

SECRET TIP: Adding heat to treatment to maximize result on your hair. When you are using our Moisture Healing Mask $23, try to apply low heat to the hair while hair mask is on. It will drive hair mask deeply penetrate into the hair draft. Please see step by step instructions below:





Untangle the easiest knots with your fingers. Once the hair treatment has had time to take effect, attempt to gently pull apart the tangled sections of your hair. Small knots or loose mats can sometimes be pulled into smaller, separate tangles from the root side of the knot, nearer to your scalp.

  • Don’t expect to fully untangle your hair during this step. If you feel the tension, stop and try a different tangled area.



Use a soft detangling brush. Soft bristle detangling brush makes a huge difference on detangling hair without breaking the hair shaft. Always comb tangled hair starting near the ends and take small sections.

Bonus tips to prevent hair from tangling

Use a leave-in conditioner. Leave-in conditioners can be left in your hair for many hours at a time. They keep your hair moisturized, minimizing fraying and frizzling that can occur when your hair dries out.

Brush your hair when it is damp, but not soaked. Too dry, and hair becomes brittle and hard to brush. Too wet, and it becomes weak and easy to pull out accidentally. Find the middle ground, brushing or combing when your hair is damp after a shower, but not dripping wet.

Loosely braid your hair before you sleep. If you wake up with your hair in a tangle, braid it before you go to bed to minimize the amount of tangling that can happen. Alternatively, you could put your hair in a bun.


Apply conditioner before shampoo. Focus on washing your scalp, not your hair. Apply hair conditioner on wet hair from mid-shaft through the ends, shampoo the root/ scalp area only rinse and condition the entire head to finish. You will see magic will happen. 
A mild, low-sudsing shampoo like Moisture Healing Shampoo $20 without sodium lauryl sulfate is recommended for this type of hair.
