Topic: Would anyone share w/ me their secrets for detangling their hair?

Although I love MM so far and do not plan to switch to anything else, my fine, thin hair tangles like mad....it always has, except now I am not using any chemical based detangling products, so I am seeing much more of a problem with this. None of the MM products get the knots out of my hair.

My method (and I'm not sure if I am doing damage here)is to brush well pre-shower, I shampoo, condition, then rinse well and use a wide tooth comb while still in the shower to get the tangles out. If I do not comb through while my hair it's still wet, the chances of de-tangling my hair dry, are slim to none.

I have not noticed any additional hair loss or breakage while doing this, but I wonder if this method is bad for my hair since I do it while still dripping wet?
Any advice on how others exclusively on MM detangle, would be much appreciated!

My hais is baby fine, thin and a little longer than shoulder length.

Thanks,
Gina

Re: Would anyone share w/ me their secrets for detangling their hair?

for certain one needs to blunt snip cut the ends
this causes alot of tangling
for long hair such as yours after showering and ones hair is wet
simply take the ends and blund snip cut them your self.
also
for fine hair brush or comb from the ends first slowly working upwards this helps alot.

Re: Would anyone share w/ me their secrets for detangling their hair?

i would like to try these hair products, but need to know which ones would be most effective. i am 41 years old and my hair is fine and very thin now, especially on top. i'm starting to see my scalp especially in front. its very depressing. please help. i dont really want the set that comes with gel cause i dont like gel. also while i'm hoping my hair will start to fill in i'd like a shampoo thats voluminzing or a product that would make it full.
thank you

Great insights and hair transformations
first of all dont recommend a shampoo for hair loss
we are the 5 elements and for good reasons for all seasons and change is necessary
so
get our tote package shampoo and conditioner
4 shampoos
and 5 conditioners.

***UPDATE: There are now 5 shampoos and 6 conditioners.***

you can put in a note not to send the gel and we will send you another product in its place.

and stop using all other hair care products.

Re: Would anyone share w/ me their secrets for detangling their hair?

suggest stop using the chi inst hair cond for now
simply
after shampooing  rub a few drops of Euro Organic oil on the ends of ones hair
massage into the ends and then comb/brush out.

again onlyi a few drops as not to leave the hair oily

great Health and detangled hair

Dear asaulle,
I wanted to respond to you considering I am the one who first posted this long ago.

I've been using MM about a year and a half now. At first it seemed nothing I did would detangle my hair. It was like one big knot.

My sugesstions to you are exactly what I've been doing myself. I trim my ends fairly regularly. (about every two months, sometimes a bit more often) After shampooing and rinsing I use a very small amount of the Euro oil on my ends only. Too much simply weighs down my fine, thin hair. Then while still in the shower, while my hair is still dripping wet, I use a wide tooth comb and start, very gently, to comb through starting at the ends and working my way up to the scalp. Yes, I get hairs in the comb but this is really the only time I find that my hair sheds much, so I believe this is quite normal and certainly not excessive. These tricks and long time use of MM exclusively have helped tremendously in detangling. It still takes quite a bit longer to detangle than it used to when I was using chemical conditioners, but the results are well worth it.

One more thing: I never did like what the chi did for my hair when used as a conditioner post shampooing, so now I use the chi as a shampoo in rotation with the four other shampoos. I like this method much better for my hair.

Hope this helps you a bit.

I have nearly tailbone length, very thick, wurly curl hair. . .and very few knots. So, I thought I'd just throw this out for you to try, if you haven't already.

I shampoo once every few days, rotating shampoos and following up with the Chi conditioner then:
I gently squeeze the excess water out of my hair and towel it up for just a couple of minutes.

Then leaning back, just a little, so that my hair falls without hitting any part of my body with both hands shaped like "dragon claws"  (lol), I lightly scratch/scrub/comb my scalp from forehead to nape. I don't touch the length. This fluffs up my hair and get the locks to loosen up and fall just right.

I often apply the Diamond Mist about now.

Then I just let it air dry.

I do not actually comb or brush my hair at all.

Once it's totally dry, I'll finger comb and super carefully pull apart any tangles or knots. . .I usually find maybe five small ones down near the last 1" of my hem, where I DO have a few split ends. I am trying to hold out until the best time to trim, according to the lunar chart.

I would have tangles galore if I tried to comb them out in the shower or even immediately afterward on towel dried hair but if I wait that all changes. . .you wouldn't think this would work for anybody but it does for me.

Wishing you soft, tangle free, luxurious hair.
