HOW BAD CAN IT GET, IF YOU COMB WET HAIR?
In our fast-paced life, isn’t it convenient to just hop in and out of the shower, comb your hair and head out for the day? But how advisable is this routine for your hair? Does it do your hair any harm?
The answer is YES! It can be bad for your hair as that is when your strands are at the peak of vulnerability. So, don’t put your locks under attack by combing it as soon as you’re out of the shower.
Even the slightest bit of tugging can cause hair breakage but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with some tricks to help save your roots and tips.
#1 HIGH FIVE TO AIR DRYING!
Before you even get a comb close to your tresses, you must air dry it. It’s totally worth the wait as it saves you from future hair fall worries. Ideally, your hair should be 80% dry before combing. Use a microfiber towel to wrap your hair in it and let your hair air dry once you unwrap it. Only comb your hair once it’s completely dry.

#2 AVOID MAN- HANDLING YOUR MANE!
Rigorously trying to dry your hair with a towel dries your hair faster but also causes major friction, causing the bonds of your hair to turn brittle and break. To avoid this, always squeeze your hair dry with a microfiber towel. This is a much gentler way of going about the entire towel drying process. This will ensure you do not tug at the strands of your hair, instead your hair gets to sit atop your scalp, calmly with no friction.
#3 DON’T MISS OUT ON CONDITIONING
If you are running out of time and urgently need to comb your hair when it’s wet, do so by using a conditioner or serum. This will prep your hair in advance and prevent the damage from the oncoming tugging and combing. Use the Pantene Oil Replacement after you step out of the shower and make detangling a hassle-free activity and bid goodbye to hair fall.

#4 SAY HELLO TO A WIDE TOOTHED COMB
To further prevent the damage that combing may cause to your hair, you should use a wide toothed comb. It passes through the strands of your hair easier and with lesser friction. A wide toothed comb can also comb through a greater number of strands, cutting short on the time and effort of the entire combing process.
#5 DON’T COMB YOUR SCALP!
It may happen unknowingly, but you may end up combing the scalp of your hair. This isn’t necessary and may cause your scalp to get abraded. You should go about combing and detangling your hair by starting from the bottom of the tips. You then work your way right up, to the top. As you reach the top, 99% of your hair will be thoroughly combed and detangled, preventing you from going too close to your scalp.
