To have a long and beautiful hair for a long time, maintenance is required. Anyone who has long hair knows how frustrating it is when you have to deal with knots and tangles. It is exhausting, painful, quite damaging, and time-consuming.
I have gathered the best tips on how to prevent your hair from tangling and minimize knots. If you suffer from tangling, keep these tips in mind.
