Matted hair is a combination of attached and fallen hair entwined in tangles such as a bunch or web. They are heavier than normal entanglements.
How does that happen?
Matte hair occurs when not combed to remove hair loss. Loose hair can get entangled or entangled several times around pinned hair if not removed. Some people simply tend to get tangled, while others suffer from damaged hair cuticles, which produce more friction from the raised cuticles.
Need to cut?
No, matte hair can be untangled well without cutting the hair. It requires patience, work, and the right tools, which can be achieved and ultimately prevent your chains and nerves from being shot.
How to solve it
With some tools and a little patience, some people choose to look for a specialist (hairdresser) to fix their matted hair, but that can be done at home.
Step 1: Moisturize your hair or Wet your hair with spray bottles of water or keep it under a shower or sink for a short time if the water pressure is low. Most hair treatments are designed for damp hair, but leaving the hair wet can make it fragile.
Step 2: Soak your hair in a good detangle, oil, or moisturizing conditioner to loosen the matted strands, but never with shampoo and water alone. This is not the time to save to really fill you up. An intense conditioner is great for moisturizing hair and making it easier to untangle.
On the other hand, Untangling conditioners are specially designed to add smoothness to the hair. Coconut oil, olive oil, or Moroccan Argon oil can be used instead, particularly useful for textured hair. If the feel of the oil hair does not like, you can try the spray unwinding the tangle of hair. When using the regular conditioner, hair is hydrated in a few minutes. Coconut oil and similar oils, but must act for at least 30 minutes to obtain the maximum effect, cannot exceed 2 hours.
Deep care products differ, as shown in the description of the package, but usually, it is at least 1 hour and left on. In extreme cases, it can be left overnight.
Step 3: Once the easiest knot to pull the Conditioner is enabled on the finger, please gently pull the tangled part of the hair. Small knots and loose mats can be pulled from the root site of the knot near the scalp into small separate tangles.
Step 4: Combs with sturdy, well-spaced teeth are essential for combing severe tangles. Fine combs and brushes are likely to have too much resistance, so pull out the tufts of hair or stop brushing. Always comb twisted hair near the edges. Place the comb a few inches (several inches) from the edge of the tangled hair and brush it down.
Repeat until that part of the hair is no longer tangled, then move the comb up a little. Repeat this until the entire hair is combed. This can take an hour or more for long, thick, and matted hair. If you have a sensitive scalp, grab a piece of hair and brush. Grasp a piece of hair with your fingers with the thickness of a marker or glue stick and twist it about halfway to prevent the comb from being pulled directly onto the scalp. Comb this part of the hair under your hands, and when the hair underneath is well thawed, move the handle up.
If the hair mat does not come off, you need to make it thinner even if you do your best. Open the scissors and secure the hair with your other hand. Move the lower blade of the scissors along the underside of the mat and gently pull on the hair to remove any loose hair.
Use a large-tooth comb until severe entanglement and entanglement are straightened. Change to the fine-tooth comb or brush and remove the remaining small knot. Since there is a significant hair loss, please do not panic. We are missing an average of 100 pieces of hair per day. Since the hair is matte, the missing hair is fixed, so you need to remove it.
Step 5: Once you rinse the hair, the tangle’s hair is solved. It washes away all the hair treatment. In tightly rolled hair, if the strict mat enough to separate the hair is away, then cut each section of hair kept separately and rinsed one at a time.
How to avoid the hair of matt:
- Regularly loosen the hair, especially if prone to the mat, you reduce the chance of hair occurring.
- Please do not postpone unraveling. There is a possibility that unraveling and matte of the process is more cumbersome and damaging.
- Make a regular protein processing to fill the gap of the damaged cuticle.
- As a result, friction, tangled, tangled is reduced. Please do not hold longer than the recommended extensions.
Long Wigs Detangling:
Over the last few years, I’ve been wearing longer wigs. I used to stick to short plants because I thought I wasn’t very good at caring for long plants. Short wigs have their challenges. For example, the nape of the neck is curly, but it is usually easy to clean. Long wigs tend to get entangled and can lead to premature curling *.
I thought it might be helpful to remember the following 5 steps and share what I learned to make sure I got a tag-free wig (synthetic or human hair).
- You need the right wig care product.
- Steaming is not smooth.
- Please wash the wig properly and carefully.
- Trim is carefully finished as a last resort.
How to avoid future tangles:
Cut your hair regularly. The split end or dry end has a significant effect on tangles. Trim regularly every 23 months to keep your tips healthy. Many people often avoid trimming because they are worried about maintaining their length, but regular trimming is necessary to grow and maintain long hair!
Sleep on a silk pillowcase or with your hair in a silk hood. Place your hair on a silky slippery surface to reduce wear while you sleep, as rubbing causes tangles.
