If this occurs, the best way to get rid of them is by using a wide tooth comb and working slowly from the ends of the hair back up toward your scalp. Never rush or just yank the comb through knots as this will cause additional breakage and trouble down the road. As you work the comb through the knots, a spot of detangler or even jojoba or all of oil can help make it easier.

Keep your hair and scalp healthy with the right products, avoid heated element tools like curling irons and straighteners and take the time to remove any knots that do occur patiently.
