How can I fix tangled hair?

ANSWER

The key to prevent tangles is to lower the amount of chemicals (dyes, relaxers, perms) that you put in your hair, and to use a good conditioner in the shower. Also, make sure your hair is tangle-free before you wash it.

Avoid brushing out tangles. Arm yourself with a wide-toothed comb, your fingers, and maybe a leave-in detangler. Start by gently picking out the tangles at the ends of your hair. Once the ends are manageable, move your way up toward the scalp, gently combing.
