Finally, I have a solution for detangling the perpetual knots in my daughter’s long, extremely thick hair. Previously, I had tried detangler after detangler, various conditioners, hair brushes and then some until these two fairly inexpensive solutions were recommended to me by Little Locks, a children’s hair salon in La Jolla. I’m so grateful to know this in advance of our trip to Kota Kinabalu, where we’ll be in the ocean and pool constantly.
I was told that cutting her hair enough to make a difference was not an option, but finally wrangled her in for a trim after it reached her waist and was full of well-camouflaged knots responsible for morning battles.
Much to my surprise, it took the hairdresser about a minute to comb out the tangles. I am so beyond thrilled with what we’ve learned that I thought I’d share these two tools for how to detangle a child’s hear with no tears involved (affiliate links).
First, Spray with Organic Miracle Detangler
I already owned Original Sprout Miracle Detangler Spray and it’s the best we’ve tried so far. Not to mention, it’s suitable for adults, vegan and free of phytoestrogens lavender & tea tree, phthalates, clove and musk, soy, gluten, honey, peanut or dairy.
Second, Comb with the Knot Genie
It doesn’t look like much but the Knot Genie Detangling Brush is amazing. Little Locks instructed us to start combing from the bottom and work our way up to the top of her head until we can brush straight through. The brush is plastic but has a unique bristle configuration that they claim works on even the curliest, most tangled hair. In fact, my daughter rarely complains about it hurting.
Now our morning routine takes less time and is much less stressful. You, too, can enjoy tangle free days ahead.
