6 Ways to Stop Your Hair From Tangling and Thinning

#5 is genius!

1. Braid your hair

Tying your hair up in a braid is a great way to style your hair differently than a regular ponytail in the exact same spot every time. This way your hair stays in plays and remains detangled all day long.

2. Condition your hair and hair extensions

Conditioning the hair will restore the moisture, leaving it smoother and less likely to tangle. We suggest you to always condition your hair after washing, and a deep conditioning mask every one or two weeks.

3. Use a wide tooth comb

You maybe inclined towards using hairbrushes because they're 'faster', but using a wide tooth comb is a much better idea. This will not only remove the tangles more efficiently, but you will also protect your hair from being torn and damaged at the tips. Start from he bottom of the knot, and patiently work your way up towards the scalp.

4. Brush your hair twice a day

If your hair is prone to tangling, it's probably not a good idea to let it down f or long hours without brushing it. Brush your hair twice a day using a soft bristle brush, especially before a shower and before you hit the bed.

5. Apply petroleum jelly to your strands

The reason your hair splits and breaks is most likely because it isdry. Just like your skin, your hair needs moisture to stay healthy. Petroleum jelly like Vaseline is ideal to hydrate and nourish the ends of your hair, preventing split ends and tangles.

6. Protect your hair while you sleep

Hair tangles when you sleep! Doesn't it? What you can do is apply an oil-in-cream masque or braid your hair before you sleep and wash it next morning.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
