We've all heard that brushing wet hair is a really bad thing to do as it can damage your strands, but sometimes it's just inescapable. The good news is there are a few ways you can brush your hair when it's damp without risking split or broken ends.

Use a wide-tooth comb

Ditching your regular brush for a wide-tooth comb can make all the difference. The space between the teeth allows you to glide the comb through your hair without tugging on it. When detangling, start at the bottom and slowly work your way up to avoid tearing through any knots.

Finger comb

For a super gentle alternative to a brush, use your fingers as a comb. With your hands, you can easily locate any tangles and work them out without pulling your hair or causing any damage. When there are no more knots, smooth some Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream throughout and begin drying.

Apply leave-in conditioner

Before you use a comb or your hands to smooth wet hair, apply a leave-in conditioner. This will help get the tangles out more easily, as well as providing some extra moisture for your tresses.

Be patient

After stepping out of the shower, towel dry your hair then allow it to air dry for ten minutes or so. You should never comb soaking wet strands because they're really vulnerable to stretching and as a result of the excess strain the strands can just snap off once dried.
