Although you can’t completely reverse the damage once it’s done, there are few tips that you can use to can use to make your hair appear healthier, and protect any new hair growth from future damage.
Caution When Wet
Your hair can be very fragile and weak when it’s wet, so wait for it dry before combing or brushing your hair. If you want to comb you hair, try using a wide tooth comb. This will be gentle on your hair. Wide tooth combs can be good for when you applying condition and want to make sure that the conditioner is evenly distributed through out your hair. A great way to comb or brush you hair is to section hair into small manageable sections you can use clip to keep the sections separated) start at the ends and work the knots out, the work you way up till you get to the root. Then I personally like to give the section one last comb through all the way from root to tip, to ensure that I have gotten all of the knots out my hair. Then repeat this process on all the sections of hair. May not be the fastest process, but I think it will be well worth you time in the long run.
Handle With Care and Use a Detangler
Your hair can get very tangled and knotted, but be very gentle with your hair when you detangle it. Don’t yank or drag your brush through your hair, be gentle, you hair can be very fragile. It can be better to take a little more time to slowly detangle your hair than to have to deal with the damage that can be caused by rushing for months to come.
