Snarls or tangles often indicate damaged hair, so handle this problem with the greatest degree of delicacy.
Things You'll Need
- Conditioner Or Hand Lotion
- Wide-toothed Comb
Apply hair conditioner or hand lotion to the fingers of one hand.
Hold the tangle in the hand that does not have lotion on it. You will use the other hand to work out the snarl gently.
Comb your fingers through the snarl. Begin at the bottom of the snarl and work toward the scalp.
For really bad snarls, wet the hair and apply conditioner. Leave the conditioner in the hair while you finger-brush it.
Gently comb out the hair with a wide-toothed comb to prevent more snarls from developing.
