Quick Tip: Finger Detangling with Gloves

Image Source 

Do you finger detangle? Well try wearing a pair of tightly fit, vinyl gloves when doing so.
I discovered the ease of detangling with gloves when doing my Henna and Indigo treatment last week.
My fingers glided through my hair and I was left with no visible breakage.
Think detangling with a smooth, wide tooth, seamless comb. That is the feeling I got when detangling with my gloves on.
The added perk is that you won’t chip your nail polish in the process.
Try it out and let me know how it works for you!

How I finger detangle:
  • Lightly dampen hair with detangling spritz
  • Separate hair in about 8 sections
  • Work with one section at a time
  • Grab one section and gently separate (in a horizontal motion) the hair little by little
  • Then rake fingers through hair in a combing fashion, stopping whenever met with tangles.
  • If tangles are found, gently tug at each strand to gently remove the hair from the shed hairs that caused the tangles. (That was a mouthful!.LOL)

That’s all folks. Finger detangling doesn’t take me any more time than detangling with a comb. I only use a comb about once a month and finger detangle about 3 times a month.


  1. OMG!!! I was thinking about doing this on my wash day this week because I needed to do my nails! I thought to myself, when I do my henna my hair is pretty easy to detangle etc so I am definitely going to use vinyl gloves next time - I have a huge box of them!!

    Great tip - I'll let you know how it goes. I'm all about keeping my nails looking good - I can't afford to be messing up my nails or my manicure on my blogging/swatching hand for my nail blog :)

    1. Yes, let me know how it goes. Might as well put those gloves to use, lol! Anything to save a manicure.
      Thanks for commenting!!

  2. Would have never thought of this. This sounds like a good idea. Will try on my next wash day. Thanks for the tip! Anything to help my fine strands.

    1. I hope it works well for you!!!
