Hair Tip – How to Detangle Wet Hair

Today I thought I’d talk about wet hair and how to detangle it. I’m talking just got out of the shower, clean, just shampooed and conditioned wet hair.

Before you even pick up the comb, it’s best to pat or squeeze your hair with a towel to remove any excess water. Never rub or scrub hair as it can cause damage.

You should always use a wide tooth comb to detangle wet hair.

Start from the bottom working your way up until all the tangles are out. By doing this, you prevent damage as your hair is in it’s weakest state while wet and very delicate.

You may need more help to comb it. Detanglers and Leave-in Moisturisers can help with extremely detangled hair (ie.very curly hair). Be sure to check with your Hair Professional before using them.

Being a hairdresser, I thought I’d share with you my knowledge. I’m going to chat regularly about all things hair related. So, if there’s anything you’d like me to talk about, send me an email and I’m happy to share what I know.

Big News revealed!!

So, it’s always been a dream to one day have a website for Chelley Bean Designs. As of today, it’s a realisation.

My little business has grown quite a bit since my humble beginnings back in 2008 and this seemed like the next logical step. After many late nights and much hard work, a good push from my husband Jason and with lots of great help from Michael at WTFox Creative, the website was born. It will continue to grow as I have plenty of products to add and a few little ideas in the works.

To say I’m excited, happy, and proud is an understatement!

Here’s what the new website looks like…

Happy Shopping and thanks for supporting Chelley Bean Designs!
