Fitness: Get Gorgeous

Outsmart Tangles

You may think that piling your hair on top of your head when you wash it gets you a deeper cleanse, but the habit can leave your strands in a tangled mess, says Jet Rhys, the owner of an eponymous salon in San Diego. Instead, gently rake the suds over your scalp and down the length of your hair with your fingertips, as if you were combing it. Distributing the shampoo from roots to ends ensures a thorough wash without the knots, Rhys explains.
