: For you guys with long hair... how do you detangle after a shower or sleeping without pulling you hair out?
After a shower I finger comb my hair to carefully eliminate any tangles. Then I comb it while it is still wet.
After it drys I'll comb it again and then use a brush.
When i'm sleeping i'll gather up the hair and lay it down next to me parallel to my body. i'm very careful to avoid knots. I would say in the last two years i've only had one knot and that is with wearing the hair down 95% of the time.
In past years I ended up having to chop off about 6-8 inches of hair to clean up the ends. This year I refrained from doing that and have been wearing my hair more in a pony tail/bun/braid/pig tail to avoid damage. I used to wear it down 95% of the time which most likely lead to damage. So i'm cutting down on that.
