It can be really frustrating when your hair tangles quickly, especially if you just spent ages de-tangling it. This might mean that you're due for a trim, but it could just be a combination of winter scarf hair and bad luck.

To help stay on top of tangle-prone tresses, just follow the simple haircare tips below.


Silky hair that won't tangle as often or as much comes from good hydration, so make sure to use a nourishing conditioner on your hair, and apply a leave-in mask once a week.

Cold water... seriously

It's winter, so this is a lot easier said than done, but once you've rinsed out your conditioner, give your hair a quick blast with cold water. The low temperature closes the cuticles, making them lie flat, which increases shine and overall smoothness.

Quick fix

A detangling spray or cream will help to get your hair back into a smooth state, but you can also help to keep it that way with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It'll eliminate any flyaways and help to keep frizz at bay, both of which can make tangling worse.

A different approach

Whether in the shower with a ton of conditioner on your locks, or when your hair is dry, you might find the detangling process a lot easier with a wide-tooth comb than with a brush.

If you don't have a comb on hand, a paddle brush will get the job done in the gentlest way possible.

A good night's sleep

We recommend that you never go to sleep with wet hair. You might tell yourself it's almost dry, but the next morning you'll regret it when you have to spend precious snooze minutes working out the resulting knots.

Investing in a silk pillowcase could also be a good idea as they tend to be gentler on the hair shaft, keeping it smooth while you move around in your sleep.

May your tangles be tamed!
