Curly hair is very different in structure from straight or wavy hair. The individual strands of curly hair are much coarser and tighter together than in other hair types, which means that they experience much more friction against each other when you try to brush them out. Plus, this kind of hair is hollow inside, which is why it’s so airy and easily tangled.

They are difficult to comb out, especially with a regular, inexpensive comb. Below we’ll analyze the main mistakes in the combing of curly hair and tell you how to make the combing painless.

To avoid tangling, use a clean brush with soft bristles. Avoid using metal combs or combs that have small plastic balls on the ends of the bristles, because they can damage your locks! Start by brushing very small sections of hair at once and work your way down from the top to the bottom to reduce the amount of breakage. Be gentle so you don’t damage the delicate structure of the hair.

  1. Don’t make a habit of brushing wet or damp hair, as this will quickly ruin your curly locks. It is important to dry your hair before you brush it.
  2. Be sure to braid your hair into a tight braid at night. In this way you will avoid breakage in the morning and the appearance of unbrushed tangles.
  3. Choose a special series of cosmetics for curly hair, which will help to make it more elastic, flexible and smooth. The oils make it easy to comb through and you won’t have to pull out any more hair.
