    Default Getting hair knots out and other hair advice please

    Hi all, my girl (21 month old) has curly/wavy hair and it gets knotty, she hates anything in hair and hates a hair brush/comb....any advice?

    She also hates hair accessories which is annoying as her hair is long and goes in her face.

    Cutting her hair is not an option.

    Thank you

    Have a look in the shampoo area in supermarkets there should be a de tangle spray. I'm sorry I can't remember it but my Dd always had tangles and I had to spray this de tangler. I'll see if I can google it for you

    If you condition her hair when she has a bath try combing it with the conditioner in it

    Tangle Teezer brush. My daughter has really fine wavy hair that looks like a birds nest every morning. I could barely touch her hair til I got one. When it's exceptionally bad, I use a bit of de-tangler as well but it's rarely needed since I got the brush

    Detangler or make your own (mix of conditioner/water). Tangle teezers are the best/gentlest to brush out hair/knots.

    My DD has very curly hair like me (except I straighten mine!) To manage her curls I do the following:

    only wash 1 x per week - curly hair is naturally dry and doesn't need much washing
    leave about 1/2 the conditioner in after washing
    only comb it when wet
    use a detangling spray (I like Johnsons) and brush daily with a detangling brush

    and it can be worth getting it frequently trimmed as dry ends will tangle it further.

    I just wet my hands and put a small amount of conditioner in them, rub them together then through my Dd's hair, add more water then brush, comb carefully. Then i try plait and tie up

    I third the tangle teezer. Definitely gets knots out easier than any other brush.

    Also the tangle teezers come with pretty fun colours/prints/sizes. Maybe try and make it a game. Or have her choose a colour?

    We shampoo twice which seems to help the conditioner work better.

    We find henna wax is great and while in the shower I work through the knots with my fingertips so delicately.

    After awhile you get quick at it.

    We have loved rpr detangler in the past and use a bristle brush.
