Hi my name is Lauren and I am here to discuss how to remove snarls in hair. If your hair winds up becoming very knotted and very natty in the back what you are going to want to do is really focus on your conditioning treatments. You are going to want to definitely use a leave in conditioner each time you wash, each time you wash your hair. You are going to shower, shampoo as usual, condition as usual and once you get out before you even attempt to start coming it out you are going to use a detangler, a spray detangler or a leave in conditioner in order to put through your ends by grabbing your hair almost as if it was in a ponytail and just kind of raking it through. You do not want to have it by your root because that will actually cause your root to be a little bit, maybe look a little bit greasy because it tends to be too much moisture on top. Your own natural sebum production will actually take care of the moisture in your hair on the top. You literally just want to concentrate on the ends. After you have done that you are going to want to take a large tooth comb and you are actually going to start from the bottom of the hair and work your way up. If you start up here and go to pull down what's going to happen is you are going to compact the snarls and the knots into one area and then it is going to make it harder because they are going to be a little bit more compacted so it will actually make it harder to remove. You are going to grab section by section and you are going to start at the ends of your hair and then you are going to slowly work your way up that hair shaft. Once you get that one section down you can get the other one. You can separate your hair in order to get the bottom first. Start at the bottom of the end of the shaft and work your way up. That way it will prevent you from compacting any of those knots down here and then you wind up having a real rat's nest. Once you get all the way through you may want to hold your hand up here so that way it doesn't pull. It gives a little bit less tension on your scalp. Once you get all the way through you simply take your tooth comb and you just kind of go on through and just help smooth. The leave in condition detangler will help make it a lot easier plus using the wide tooth comb will make it easier and that is how to remove snarls from your hair.
