Re: Hair conditioner/detangler for kids
My youngest daughter was a whole new experiance for me. Me and my
older daughter both have straight thick hair. She, on the other
hand, got curly thick hair, right from the get go.
What I finally found that worked the absolute best was to saturate
her hair with good conditioner, not kid conditioner. I would use the
stuff from hair dye boxes, the stuff for extra conditioning, or
stuff like pantene on her head, and let it sit for a good 10 minutes.
Once it sat on her head, I’d work it into all the little tangles
with my fingers and take a wide toothed strong comb and start slowly
combing the hair out, starting at the bottom. Once the bottom inch
was tangle free, I’d move up an inch and repeat.
I found that if I combed it out while the conditioner was still on
her head, and she was occupied with playing in the tub, it went much
faster, and allowed for smooth brushing for the day outside the tub.
I have tried so many detanglers, including homemade, and nothing
worked as good as just taking a comb and working it out, knot by
knot, with the conditioner on her head, still.
I love how the kids stuff smells, but on her head, it didn’t do
anything to help get the tangles out. Out of frustration one day, I
just grabbed a bottle that I’d been using from my hair dye kit, and
it worked great, and left the hair silky smooth, too.
