Some hair tangles are so bad that the only solution is to cut it out. Reduce the amount you need to cut by snipping through the clump vertically. After a few snips, comb through the tangle. You may find that you won't need to cut any further.

If you have ever battled with a clump of tangled hair, then you know how frustrating it is trying to work a comb through the mess.

Using conditioner on the wet clump might make it easier to untangle. And if you have the patience, this should work quite well.

However, sometimes the tangle is so bad that you’re left with no choice but to cut it off.

I’m no stranger to this and have done so once or twice. And since the clump was small and my hair was pretty long at the time, it wasn’t much of a loss.

But if you have a massive tangle or a few small ones, then snipping them off might leave you with an uneven length and choppy hair. To prevent this, here’s a very simple tip: cut through the clump vertically.

Making vertical cuts will sacrifice less hair in the process. Once you make those cuts, you’ll find that combing through the tangle becomes much easier.
