How to Get Knots Out of Your Hair

Ouch, ouch, ouch! Stop pulling your hair out and get those stubborn knots out without causing damage to your tender scalp.


  • Step 1: Separate hair Separate the hair in the knot as much as possible with your fingers.
  • TIP: If the hair will not separate, don't force it. You don't want to rip your hair out or break the hair at the knot.
  • Step 2: Mix detangler Mix the water and conditioner, and pour the solution into a spray bottle.
  • Step 3: Spray on detangler Spray the detangler on the knotted hair until it is saturated. Then gently comb the knot out.
  • TIP: Use short comb strokes to remove tangles and gently ease out knots.
  • Step 4: Wash hair Wash and condition your hair as usual.
  • Step 5: Dry hair Towel dry your hair and comb it out completely. Use your detangler as often as necessary to remove those stubborn snarls.
  • FACT: The pompadour hairstyle is named after the Marquise de Pompadour, who lived in 18th-century France.
