A Random Hair Staple - Detangler

I've densely highlighted my hair for years. I actually just decided to go light brown (all one color) but the new color is not sticking to the blonde highlights so I'm kind of two-toned right now. Bleach is really damaging to your hair so being gentle with it when washing, brushing and styling it is key.

I use the Wet Brush and the Tangle Teezer to make sure I am ultra kind to my wet and extremely tangled hair. You can use them together or individually. I find that with the Tangle Teezer alone it can take a while to get through the layers of hair, which sometimes I just don't have time for, in all honesty. I'll often start with it to really loosen things up and finish out with the Wet Brush to get some scalp stimulation. I use both on dry hair too, in case you were wondering. The Tangle Teezer makes my hair feel so soft when I use it on my dry hair, but if I brush for too long, it'll cause static. 

Probably the most important thing I do is use a detangler. There are many creams and sprays out there, but I found one at CVS a long time ago and the same bottle is going strong. The Shea Moisture Ray Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler (with Sea Kelp and Argon Oil) has been amazing. 

I even pictured how much I use for my longer hair (it reaches my bra strap on my back, for reference) because I wanted to emphasize how this large bottle would keep for a long time. I use it every time I wash my hair and I've had it well over a year. It can be a bit pricey, but if you wait for a good sale or a coupon to come through CVS (and utilize your ExtraBucks!) it's not a huge investment. And by pricey, I mean like... $13-16 depending on your area. I can't remember what I paid for this but I know I picked it up because it was on sale. 

This is safe for color treated hair and is sulfate free, if you're worried about it. Sometimes, when I want an extra moisture/shine boost, I'll add a pea size of argon oil to my regular amount of detangler and mix it together before applying to my hair. 

I love this product and if you use it/try it let me know if you love it too! 



Psst. This is not a sponsored post. I paid for this product with my own money a long, long time ago. I just love it!
