Raise your hands if you have been traumatized by tangles so bad you almost want to cut them off! We’ve all been there, especially those with long, thick, curly hair. The spiral shape of curls allows them to entangle with other hair strands to create a mess.
Detangling hair can be a long, painful process without the right tools and techniques. The tugging and pulling can cause more damage and split ends, leading to severe tangling down the road. When you have tangly hair is where a detangling brush comes in. These brushes are specifically designed to take down tangles and make hair easier to work through.
Why does Hair Tangle?
No one likes tangled or knotty hair.
Hair tangles result from open and damaged cuticles (outermost layer of hair). The open (not smooth) layers get intertwined, causing tangles and knots.
Damaged and textured hair forms the worst tangles. A healthy cuticle should be flat, smooth, and closed. Hair with healthy cuticles looks alive, shiny, and bouncy.
Here are some common causes of hair tangles:
- Overexposure to heat such as blow-drying
- Harsh weather conditions
- Harsh hair products
- Vigorous hair drying with a towel
- Improper methods of washing hair
- Sleeping with hair down
- Split ends
So, What is a Detangling Brush, and How Does it Work?
A detangling brush is a specially designed hairbrush for any hair prone to tangles. Unlike other hairbrushes, a detangling brush removes knots and tangles without pulling and tugging when appropriately used. Using the right hairbrush reduces hair breakage and overall damage. A detangling brush is crucial for growing healthy, tangle-free locks.
There are various kinds of detangling brushes, but they all function similarly. The flexibility of a detangling brush allows it to fit your hair needs making detangling easy. The bristles flex and move through tough knots rather than ripping the tangled strands apart.
Types of Detangling Hair Brushes

Let’s talk about ways to detangle wet and dry hair
Ready to detangle your knotted hair?
Hair is especially prone to breakage when wet, so be extra careful when working with damp strands.
Here is an example detangling process to use on any hair type to minimize damage:
- Spritz away with a detangler
Spraying a detangler on wet or dry hair helps to soften the knots. You are less likely to stress and damage your mane.
- Section your hair
Dividing your hair into sections makes detangling more manageable. Create several sections depending on your hair thickness and length. Start with the bottom section and work your way to the upper layers.
- Brush, brush, brush
Use a detangling brush to gently work through each section. Start from your ends and work your way up to your scalp. This brushing method helps prevent hair breakage and damage.
- Spritz and repeat the process.
