11 Detanglers Will Take Out Those Snarls With a Gentle Touch

Sometimes, your hair can get so matted or tangled that all you want to do is cry. Just the thought of working through those impossible snarls is enough to make anyone cringe. The massive hair clumps in your comb, the chunks in your shower drain, the broken bits that end up on the bathroom floor from all the ripping and pulling. The anxiety of going through it all is enough to make you never want to touch your hair again. But it doesn't have to be this way. Investing in the proper tools, as well as taking your time to carefully tackle the knots — starting from the bottom and working your way to the top — is the most effective way to avoid tugging and damaging your hair. Enough of the drama. Here are some handy detangling tools to help you get through the process with minimal pain or tears.
