    Default Conditioner for toddlers

    This might seem a bit odd, but DD does not like her hair being brushed particularly if its a bit knotty. I am considering an in shower conditioner or a leave in one you put into dry hair. What do you use to make hair brushing less painful for your toddler?

    My dds hair is quite long and is prone to knots, I use the johnsons kids no more tangles spray. It works great. I spray it in and then brush. The knots come out easily, it's a leave in spray. Hope that helps.

    You can buy spray on de-tangler for children. It's in the baby/children section of the supermarket and it works a treat.

    I just use abit of my conditioner on her when she is in the bath and quickly comb her hair when she hops out and then I leave it, it's all she will tolerate

    we got a detangler brush from hairhouse warehouse...it is shaped like a flower...cost me $32...best money ever spent!!

    I don't even need to use detangler now, the brush just makes it so easy and it comes with a little container part that is great for storing hair ties.

    thanks ladies, will have a look around. I just needed somewhere to start as this is not a product I use myself very often.

    Natures Instinct do a baby conditioner. It works great and smells like essential oils. Does leave a bit of a ring around the bath so better to apply and rinse in the shower.

    I also got DD (and anyone else I know with a little girl with tangly hair) a Denman Tangle Tamer brush. They are awesome! You can order online from the UK and I have found them in the odd hairhouse-warehouse. But don't just go and ask for a 'tangle tamer' as there are lots of brushes that claim to do this, the Denman one is amazing.

    My niece has just started using argan(?) oil, which is helping. I hate the smell of the johnson etc sprays so am going to try this too.
