In order to avoid tangled hair after a shower, it is essential to ensure that hair is tangle-free before you jump into the shower. So before you allow it to get wet, brush your hair out and ensure that it is tangle-free and that no knots remain.

Once you’ve wet your hair in the shower, take some shampoo out into your palm, and proceed to massage it into your scalp using your fingertips. Do not rub it all into the hair with your palms, as this will cause your hair to tangle and knot. Instead, spread it all over your scalp in a gentle, massaging motion, and slide it down through your hair. This will keep the hair tangle-free while distributing the shampoo evenly all over your head and through your hair.
Next proceed to wash the shampoo out. Again, do not rub vigorously using both your hands. Instead, gently rinse it out by combing through your hair with your fingers. Lift it up and fan it out with your hands under the shower, in order to allow the water to rinse through and the shampoo to wash out completely.
Leave the conditioner in for around 5 to 8 minutes, and then rinse it out. Comb through your hair with your fingers, and if the hair still feels extremely tangled, you can condition it a second time.
Once you are out of the shower, towel you hair dry, until it is just faintly damp. Now, pick up your hairbrush, and start running it through your hair. Every time you come across a tangle, stop and do not attempt to brush further or run through it. Comb all your hair in this manner.

Now, spray a re-hydrant spray all over the tangled knots in your hair. You should now be able to comb through your hair with ease. If any knots and tangles persist, use some of the re-hydrant spray directly on the knot, and work on it gently with your brush, until your hair is completely tangle-free.
