Remedy for Child's Tangled Hair

I am having trouble with my daughter's thick tangled hair. Dealing with her hair is a pain and it hurts her when I have to comb her tangles out. Help. I do use conditioner in a bottle, but it seems like it makes her hair look oily or like too much conditioner is in it? She won't let me cut her hair haha.

Try water in a spray bottle. Just spritz a little water directly onto the tangle and then brush or comb it gently.

I have 3 daughters with very long hair. My own is very long too. We have tried many different things, but what has worked the best for us is a wood-bristle brush. We use this exact one...

It does not catch on our hair like nylon bristle brushes do. If you are really adventurous, you can skip washing her hair with shampoo. We love washing ours with baking soda. Our hair is shinier and seems healthier than when we washed with shampoo. We still use conditioner though. Also, once a week is all children really need their hair washed. One more thing that has worked well for us is Tresemme Nourishing Rituals Cashmere Touch Hydrating Serum. It is oily, but it does not seem to make my girls' hair oily. It soaks right into their hair and makes it easier to comb. I hope you have good luck with these suggestions. They have made my life a lot easier.

Start with the shampoo. First mix the shampoo with water in a glass, before you pour onto the wet hair. It doesn't take a lot. After you rinse her hair, mix conditioner with water in a glass. Pour over hair and work through with your fingers.


Use a comb with large teeth and comb tangles out. Then rinse. Her hair should be pretty tangle free. When her hair is dry, if it tangles. Use Johnson and Johnson No More Tangles spray, Spray it on and again use a large toothed comb to comb through. See if this helps.
