All children suffer from tangled hair. From wriggling in their sleep to wearing rubber swimming hats, knotty hair is guaranteed. Hair tangles can be frustrating and have to be delicately handled to avoid damaging hair fibres. A soft approach and a little preventative care can make brushing a breeze.
Get regular hair cuts
Getting your child’s hair cut frequently keeps it in optimum shape. Even if your little one wants to grow their hair long, regular trims will only take off the damaged ends. Getting rid of the split ends will help make combing easy.
Keep hair moisturised
Ensure that you pick products that contain healthy moisturising oils. Original Sprout products have a special, unique blend that uses ultra moisturising ingredients such as calendula oil and rosemary. These ingredients help complement your hair’s natural oils and moisturising properties. Hydrated hair is more pliable and resilient, and naturally withstands damage and fire that contributes to tangles.
Brushing and styling products
When you brush wet hair it can cause it stretch and cause additional stress to the hair shaft. When hair is wet, spritz on a detangler to protect the hair while you brush and style it. Using a wide tooth comb, work from the bottom to tease out any tangles. The best detanglers will not only get tangles out, but add extra moisture to prevent fizz and protect your hair. Using a good leave-in conditioner or hair oil can also help prevent moisture loss and smooth the cuticle so that the hairs don’t tangle.
You can help reduce tangles by popping hair into a loose braid before bed or exposure to wind or exercise. Keep hair hydrated and trimmed and make brushing a breeze!
