Tangled red hair can be a huge pain (figuratively and physically) — but fear not! We’ve got a few tips and tricks for you to keep your red hair tangle-free and easy to manage while reducing damage: 

Use a detangler

Detangling products aren’t just for kids! Adults need a good detangler too. Opt for one that will nourish your hair and can act as a styling tool while also helping your brush glide through.

Wear a tangle-free style to bed

If your hair is getting tangled while you sleep, it’s time to start wearing it in a more protective hairstyle. Braids and loose high buns are all great ways to keep your hair from tangling overnight. 

Get silk pillowcases 

One thing that might be contributing to your tangles at night is your pillowcase. Opt for a silk or satin pillowcase so your hair doesn’t get caught or rub against the fabric causing frizz, tangles, and damage.

Try a wide tooth comb

The first step to tackling tangles is separating the hair into more manageable sections. Try using a wide-tooth comb to ease the hair apart and get large tangles out of the way.

Use a detangling brush

Once you’ve separated the hair it’s important to tackle every single tangle. If you find yourself having tangled hair on a regular basis, use a detangling brush to keep things smooth and tangle-free.

Care for your ends 

Tangled hair can often be caused by damaged or dry ends. Keep your hair healthy by getting regular trims, conditioning your ends, and keeping hair hydrated. You can also use a leave-in conditioner to keep hair tangle-free after washing.
