The purpose of a detangler is to add manageability to your hair. As part of this process, this style of conditioning formula eases knots, moisturizes, and strengthens. It can also minimize the incidence of frizz and the number of flyaways occurring in high humidity. When you choose a detangler, it is important to select one that has been formulated for your hair type so that you achieve the best possible results. Here’s a look at some of the common detangling formulas.
Hydrating detanglers – This style is formulated to minimize frizziness, strengthen, and deliver fresh moisture in order to rehydrate each strand.
Leave-in conditioners – Designed for daily use, leave-in conditioners have a lightweight consistency so that the hair does not look or feel greasy. Incorporating lightweight, non-sticky detanglers into a beauty care regimen helps to avoid the messy buildup that some products create.
Multi-faceted Detanglers – Formulas offering more than one capability are designed to enhance the styling process as well as the hair. They contain ingredients that help to detangle, moisturize, smooth, create shine, protect against sun damage, infuse fresh elasticity, and strengthen.
Color-treated hair – Detanglers for color-treated hair are gentle enough not to strip color but are powerful enough to add the kind of body and shine needed to refresh the strands for greater manageability. These are gentle formulas that can be utilized daily.
Dry and/or damaged hair – Detanglers in this category deliver fresh stores of moisture that help to protect the hair while detangling it with unique ingredients such as kerasilk, natural lipids, Aloe, or Jojoba Oil. This style helps to circumvent dry hair’s natural tendency to absorb and release moisture quickly, a cycle that continues to damage the strands in an unending spiral.
Curly hair detangler – Designed specifically for curly hair, this style of detangler is lightweight in consistency so that it does not weigh down the curls. It includes styling ingredients chosen to help shape and support curls.
Protective – This style of detangler is designed to infuse a protective, lightweight coating for the hair through a bevy of ingredients chosen for their ability to safeguard against tangling, split ends and other types of damage
